This morning I was trotting off to the library and like the tool that I am I forgot the library doesn’t open until 10am. I’m glad the library was closed as I got to witness Christianity in action.
Feeding the hungry and clothing the naked. I think that’s in the Good Book somewhere.
That’s what I saw this morning in the Plaza right next to the Akron Public Library. Apparently these kind Christian folks from a ministry called Jesus Said…Ministries meet there just about every Saturday morning feeding the hungry and clothing the naked.
It was a bit chilly with a brisk breeze this morning but that didn’t deter the dozen or so volunteers from putting feet to their faith and doing what they feel the Good Book is telling them to do. It was refreshing to see.
Like I said it was cold out there but Jesus Said…Ministries had a bit of everything going on. They had a bit of live music, plenty of food, clothing and a bit of street preaching as well. They even brought their own kneeling bench so folks wouldn’t have to get dirty praying for salvation.
It’s always nice to see folks putting feet to their faith or in this case clothes on backs and food in bellies. Just in case you were wondering the Good Book says the following;
(John 21:15-17) When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Feed my lambs.” He said to him a second time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Tend my sheep.”He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, “Do you love me?” and he said to him, “Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep. ESV from E-Sword
Strong words from the Lord and Savior especially in light of the fact Peter had just denied Jesus. A reminder of what he had done (hence the three separate commands) and then forgiveness.
The street preacher from Jesus Said…Ministries used the same approach to the crowd of about 150 that Jesus did with Peter reminding them they are sinners and then showing them the way to forgiveness by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
I’d say a job well done and if you reading this are in the Akron Ohio area you should check out Jesus Said…Ministries and see if you can either volunteer or maybe donate some food, clothing or even your time and put feet to your faith.
Today’s Wednesday and this is the day when we change our Facebook profile pictures to that of Pastor Saeed Abedini, the Iranian born American Pastor imprisoned in Iran for crimes against the state……IOW being a Christian.
It would be nice if the Obama Government would get involved but to the best of my knowledge they haven’t and if they have it hasn’t done any good because Abedini is still locked up.
Allegedly Abedini is being threatened by ISIS. This is the same crew that beheaded American Journalist James Foley. The video I linked to is graphic so viewer discretion is advised.
So, please change your profile picture today to one of Pastor Abedini and please pray for him and his family that God’s will be done in this matter and hopefully that will is for him to return home to his family.
Yes dear friends. After a two and a half year hiatus, the blog and I are back.
Today I’m joined by Dr. Kenneth Talbot and he is here to biblically define what a true Christian Church is, what the bible says about the true proclamation of His word and how this manifests itself in the life of a believer in Christ.

Over the last few weeks I’ve been absolutely devouring the work of the reformers. Yesterday I ran across this wisdom filled nugget from Martin Luther…
The greatest and fiercest strife that Christians have, is with false brethren. If a false brother would openly say: I am a Pilate, a Herod, an Annas, that is, if he would put off the name of a believing Christian, and profess himself an open enemy to Christ, then we would patiently endure all the evil he could work upon us. But that such should bear the name of Christians, we cannot and will not endure; this rule and government over the conscience, we divines take properly unto us, and say: It is ours through the Word, we will not suffer ourselves to be bereaved of it, by any means.
The world lost an amazing man yesterday. Steve Jobs, the man who helped bring the world to the fingertips of millions, passed away of Pancreatic cancer at the age of 56.
Dear Mr. Jobs,
First of all I would like to say that I have never owned a product of yours but I know plenty who do. They not only love your products but love you as well. Even though most of my friends have never even met you they feel like they lost a dear friend today and I’m saddened for them and their loss. Continue reading →
It’s another beautiful Wednesday in Corfu Greece and another busy day of tennis, preparing podcasts, setting up interviews and attempting to accomplish other daily chores that always make life interesting.
There just isn’t enough hours in the day is there?
