Text to Ponder:  Luke 22:19: “And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, ‘This is My body given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.’” (NIV84)

Focus:  Is 53:1–6, 10; Ps 51:15 (NIV84); Jonah 2:9 (NKJV)

Who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? … He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering. Like one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him, and afflicted.

But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.

We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all. Yet it was the LORD’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer,

though the LORD makes his life a guilt offering, … the will of the LORD will prosper in his hand.

[Praise the LORD] for  “Salvation is of the LORD.”

O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare Your praise.

  1. Hello,
    I am the new Director of Grand Valley Oncology and from time to time we have a patient that is homeless while going through treatment or is having other financial issues. I wondered if your organization already offers any services that we might refer the patient to or if you would like to meet and discuss how we can help people in these types of circumstances.
    Thank you,
    Gail

    1. Gail, thank you for contacting us. At this time we do not have any such service. We are a small church, and do not have the financial resources to help on this level. We do have a few people who may be free and willing to help with emotional and spiritual comfort. But again, this is not formal; merely when the need arises, we do what we can to meet it.
      Perhaps emailing me at michaelr05@msn.com will help clarify another lingering or unasked questions.
      Michael
