A RIGHT NOW word for someBODIES. If you don't love yourself, how can you love others?Before you can start working on relationships with others, you must start with the person you see in the mirror! YOU!! In Matthew 22:37–39, Jesus says you are to love God and love your neighbor as YOU LOVE YOURSELF. It’s easy to focus on loving God, and loving your neighbor, but not enough focus on loving yourself. If you don’t love yourself, you are denying the fact that God loves you. If you don’t love yourself, it means you don’t really understand the precious gift you are in God's eyes!...Min. Reuben... ... See MoreSee Less

calling on all prayer warriors! pray for my son Micah Paul Richardson, he called home yesterday with words of amazement that his mentor in the driving industry who he is assigned to jumped out and left him in the rig. His life was in danger!!!! now he went on to say that, that person does NOT answer his questions and DO NOT want him to succeed. BUT in Jesus' name that will not happen,amen!! He passed all of his test at the TOP , he is in Kansas City right now. Pray that in the face of prejudice, bigotry, jealiousy, and fiery darts from the pits of hell DO NOT prevail and that Micah will return home fully certified to drive, and unharmed in Jesus' Name, amen! ...

I am the Lord All-Powerful, and I challenge you to put me to the test. Bring the entire ten percent into the storehouse, so there will be food in my house. Then I will open the windows of heaven and flood you with blessing after blessing.

If you want to meet Jesus, pray this simple prayer…

I believe that Jesus died for my sins.
I believe that He was buried and rose again on the third day.
I confess with my mouth that Jesus is lord. I AM SAVED!

If you openly say, “Jesus is Lord” and believe in your heart that God raised him from death, you will be saved. Yes, we believe in Jesus deep in our hearts, and so we are made right with God. And we openly say that we believe in him, and so we are saved.” – Romans 10:9-10 (The Bible, Easy-to-read version)
