Saturday, October 21 / November 3, 2007: 2Cor 8:1-5, Luke 8:16-21
- passage: 2Cor 8:1-8:5
Moreover, brethren, we do you to wit of the grace of God bestowed on
the churches of Macedonia; How that in a great trial of affliction
the abundance of their joy and their deep poverty abounded unto the
riches of their liberality. For to their power, I bear record, yea,
and beyond their power they were willing of themselves; Praying us
with much intreaty that we would receive the gift, and take upon us
the fellowship of the ministering to the saints. And this they did,
not as we hoped, but first gave their own selves to the Lord, and unto
us by the will of God.
passage: Luke 8:16-8:21
No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel,
or putteth it under a bed; but setteth it on a candlestick, that they
which enter in may see the light. For nothing is secret, that shall
not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known
and come abroad. Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath,
to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken
even that which he seemeth to have. Then came to him his mother and
his brethren, and could not come at him for the press. And it was told
him by certain which said, Thy mother and thy brethren stand without,
desiring to see thee. And he answered and said unto them, My mother
and my brethren are these which hear the word of God, and do it.
