Greetings, friends, in the name of Jesus. I was at the "Women Who Support" Recognition Dinner on Saturday, April 28, 2012 held by the men of King Solomon Lodge No. 8 in Lexington, Kentucky. These men were honoring and recognizing women who support them. I had the privilege of receiving God's Word from the Speaker, Min. Angela Lee Price, Founder and President of Jesus Saves Ministries and Jesus Saves Ministries Social Network at this Recognition Dinner. Minister Angela's message came from Acts 3:1-10. "Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour. And a certain man lame from his mother's womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple; Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms. And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us. And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them. Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God. And all the people saw him walking and praising God: And they knew that it was he which sat for alms at the Beautiful gate of the temple: and they were filled with wonder and amazement at that which had happened unto him." (KJV) Minister Angela Lee Price's message at this Recognition Dinner is that we must just keep on coming to church. She said that when you keep coming to church, you can see what God is doing in the lives of other people and then you will also see what God is doing in your own life. She says that we must not be like the CME's, that is, those who come to church only at Christmas, Mother's Day and Easter. We must keep coming to church when we are depressed, house is in foreclsure, children acting up, people talk about us, we must just keep coming to church.

Greetings, my friends, in the name of Jesus! When I think about Jesus and all HE has done for me, when I think about Jesus and how HE set me free, I could dance, dance, dance all night! Glory. Jesus, the Alpha and Omega; the beginning and the end; there is none like HIM. I am coming forth to let you know that God's Word is real. I have been finding that God is my protector, my safe haven and HE is just so good to me. Oh how HE has set me free. Free from all harm and danger, free from addiction and abuse, free from stress and distress, free... because who the SON sets free is free indeed. John 8:36, "So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed."(NIV) Friends, when I think about Jesus and how HE died on Calvary, nailed to that old rugged cross, Lord have mercy, I just want to shout, shout, shout, all night! Hallelujah. The scripture came to pass that on the third day, Jesus rose from the grave and was ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God. I just want to jump, jump, jump, alll night. Glory. Jesus paid it all for me and for you. So when I think about Jesus, I cannot help but to be humble and grateful and joyful because HE has redeemned me so I can have new life in HIS Father God. May you dance and shout and jump when you think about Jesus. God bless you.
