MID-WEEK

Wisdom vs. Folly
Light vs. Darkness
Spirit vs. Flesh
Life vs. Death

Brothers and Sisters,

Proverbs chapters 8 and 9 give a powerful picture of wisdom and folly personified.

We are constantly being invited by both of these voices and by God’s grace we can choose and apply wisdom.

I am so thankful for the continuous process of repentance and faith and transformation in the power of the Holy Spirit!

May we rest well this summer and learn together what it means to live and love in the wisdom of Jesus, Denis

MID-WEEK

There is a blueprint for wisdom in the Word of God. Last Sunday we looked at the blueprint for fathers and mothers.

Share ideas on the Mariemont Church Families FB page. Miss a service? Listen to the Podcast.

Friends,

It was a special Father’s Day celebration Sunday. We received so much from our Father as we prayed for wisdom in the name of Jesus.

Dads asked for the heart of a father and Moms asked for the heart of a mother as described in Proverbs 2:1-10 and 31:1-9, respectively.

The heart of a father:
– To point the way to God as a humble priest
– To lead into destiny as a trustworthy king
– To teach and discipline as a wise mentor
– To warn and protect as a brave warrior
– To seek others’ best in love as a good friend

The heart of a mother:
– To point the way to God by embodying wisdom
– To help her husband complete his mission
– To manage her home with excellence and grace
– To train, nurture and protect as she gives life
– To bring glory to God as she embraces her role

We know we have received because we have asked in Jesus’ name. May we learn more together about what it means to live and love in the wisdom of Jesus, Denis

MID-WEEK

 

 

May our worship be led by the Spirit and by the truth of God’s Word. As we trust Jesus in new ways, we take a deeper, more meaningful place in The Cosmic Choir.

 

 

Beloved Disciples,

I trust our “Kairos” journey in the Psalms has brought fresh insights to your minds and fresh restoration to your souls as you have encountered God.

I have felt a renewed sense of privilege in entering into God’s presence and have been noticing new things each day.

For example, this morning as the sun rose, I was on my deck giving thanks as the birds sang.

Later after Ann Beach’s memorial service, we drove to Franklin Ohio for the grave-side service. Amidst majestic oaks, the birds were still singing as I read Revelation 22. Glorious!

The Cosmic Choir never goes quiet (except 30 minutes in Revelation 8:1) and the glory of God spills into every moment.

May the summer be filled with Kairos moments as we continue to seek God in his Word and lift praises to his glorious and worthy name!

NOTE – SPECIAL WORSHIP SUNDAY:

On Sunday June 5, we will have our annual congregation meeting – one at 9 and one at 11. This will include family worship, baby dedications, a leadership review and affirmation of new elders, testimonies and missions news, and next steps on our Undivided racial reconciliation initiative.

On Sunday June 12, we will start our summer series in the wisdom book of Proverbs – we are calling this series “Doing Life Well”.

Living and loving in Jesus with you, Denis
