Hi Kathy, thanks for tonight’s Canteen!
Read: Acts 4:1-13
I was traveling with some men when we spotted a family stranded alongside the road. My friends immediately pulled over to help. They got the car running, talked with the father and mother of the family, and gave them some money for gasoline. When the mother thanked them over and over, they replied, Were glad to help out, and we do it in Jesus name. As we drove away, I thought how natural it was for these friends to help people in need and acknowledge the Lord as the source of their generosity.
Peter and John exhibited that same joyful generosity when they healed a lame man who was begging outside the temple in Jerusalem (Acts 3:1-10). This led to their arrest and appearance before the authorities who asked, By what power or by what name have you done this? Peter replied, If we this day are judged for a good deed done to a helpless man . . . let it be known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, by Him this man stands here before you whole (Acts 4:7-10).
Kindness is a fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22) and a powerful context in which to genuinely speak to others about the Lord.
Good evening, Publius, and thank you for Rachmaninov’s “The Star Spangled Banner”.
Good evening, Mac...*HUGS*...did you sally forth today? Recovered from your road trip?
It’s 55 degrees here!!
Silver Strand took over my old command which was known at the time as NRRF Imperial Beach.
