27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.

Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

16 Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.



Call to Worship : Psalm 103: of David                                  Excerpt


1 Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
2 Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits
3 who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,


4 who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion,

5 who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

The Triumphs of Trusting: Immense Blessings : Luke 18:28-34 NIV


28 Peter said to him, “We have left all we had to follow you!”


29 “Truly I tell you,” Jesus said to them, “no one who has left home or wife or brothers or sisters or parents or children for the sake of the kingdom of God 30 will fail to receive many times as much in this age, and in the age to come eternal life.”


Jesus Predicts His Death a Third Time

31 Jesus took the Twelve aside and told them, “We are going up to Jerusalem, and everything that is written by the prophets about the Son of Man will be fulfilled. 32 He will be delivered over to the Gentiles. They will mock him, insult him and spit on him; 33 they will flog him and kill him. On the third day he will rise again.”


34 The disciples did not understand any of this. Its meaning was hidden from them, and they did not know what he was talking about.

What is the value and worth of following Jesus!


Reward does not come without releasing our idols, trusting, and following Jesus.



No matter what you are going through, following Jesus, which is living a life trusting and committed to him, brings immense blessing.
