Dear Father, Hospitable King,
Fill me with brotherly love. Make me a generous provider of hospitality to strangers. Let angels find provision under my roof, even when I don't know who they really are.
Help me remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them, and those who are ill-treated, since I am also in the body.
Help me hold marriage in honour. May my own marriage bed remain forever un-defiled.
Keep me from the love of money. Help me be content with what I have, knowing that you will never fail me or forsake me.
In the name of Jesus. Amen

After living what I felt was a 'decent' life, my time on earth came to the end. The first thing I remember is sitting on a bench in the waiting room of what I thought to be a court house. The doors opened and I was instructed to come in and have a seat by the defense table. As I looked around I saw the 'prosecutor.' He was a villainous looking gent who snarled as he stared at me. He definitely was the most evil person I have ever seen.

It's Friday. But Sunday's a Coming!
The famous preacher Dr. Tony Campolo tells the story of a little preaching competition that he had with his pastor during services at the church where he attends. Dr. Campolo tells how he preached the perfect sermon, perfect in every way. He had taken the congregation to the heights of glory. And as he sat down beside his pastor, Dr. Campolo patted him on the knee and simply said, "Top that." The older black pastor looked at him and said, "Boy, watch the master."

Non-Religious Biblical Christianity
The moving graphic above shows that in the beginning, mankind and God were in close relationship with each other. God loves us so much that He doesn't force us to do His will—He gives us free choice. Unfortunately we have all made some wrong choices in life, which is what some people call "the human condition" and what the Bible calls "sin".

Ok, this piece is humorous - but it does have some serious points!
The Maker of all human beings (GOD) is recalling all units manufactured, regardless of colour, make or year, due to a serious defect in the primary and central component of the heart.

Ten Powerful Reasons to Believe
1. The Credibility Of Its Founder
Christ said He came from heaven to fulfil prophecy, to die for our sins, and to bring to His Father all who believe in Him. Logic says that He was either a liar, a lunatic, a legend, or the Lord of heaven. His first-century followers drew their own conclusions. They said they saw Him walk on water, still a storm, heal crippled limbs, feed 5,000 with a few pieces of bread and fish, live a blameless life, die a terrible death, and alive again. During His ministry, when some of Jesus' followers took issue with His teachings and left, He asked those closest to Him if they too wanted to leave. Peter spoke for the others when he said, "Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. Also we have come to believe and know that You are the Christ, the Son of the living God" (John 6:68-69).
