INTERCESSION for Healing Service

Because we are the beloved children of God, we are the salt of the earth and the light of the world.  We are His representatives, His vessels, His instruments, the servants of His kingdom on this planet.  Since Jesus absented Himself from our midst, we, filled with His spirit, are chosen and instructed to carry on His purposes among the peoples of the world.  We are like the salt amongst the world's corruption, lights within its darkness.  It isn't enough to display our piety in religious exercises; we are called upon to demonstrate and manifest God's love for the unloved beings that cross our paths.  And God puts hundreds of these beings along the path of each individual member of Marana Tha' community through our Healing Services.

“And he said to them, "Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men."  Immediately they left their nets and followed him.  And going on from there he saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets, and he called them. Immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed him.” Mat 4:20-22 (RSV)

Here is a boy with five small barley loaves and two small fish, but how far will they go among so many? (John 6:9)

At certain times in our lives we may feel insignificant and useless. In our weak moments we are tempted to just settle back and let somebody else do the work.  We might reason that what we have to offer won’t make much of a difference anyway.  We forget the truth suggested by our Lord’s use of five loaves and two small fish to feed a multitude.  Each of us has something important to offer in His service.  An orchestra conductor has the ability to hear every note from every instrument in an orchestra and if someone misses his part he will surely notice.  It is much the same way with the use of our abilities for the Lord. Whether our talent is great or small, the performance is not complete until we do our best with what we have.

“Lord, You know my limitations. I need Your help so I will always give You my best and my all.”

In God’s eyes it is a great thing to do a little thing well.

Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize. Run in such a way to get the prize. (1 Corinthians 9:24)

It is true in life as in running: Only the determined achieve their goals.  Olympic medals do not go to overweight businessmen who occasionally puff around the track for exercise.  In the film Chariots of Fire, the actor was shoved off balance before the first turn in a 400-meter race, and he stumbled onto the infield grass.  Looking up, he saw the others pulling away, and with a look of intense determination, he jumped up. He was determined not only to catch up with the pack but to win the race.  And he did!  St. Paul saw himself as being like an Olympic athlete who is competing for a gold medal, straining every muscle in his body to get to the finish line.  And what is the prize?  It is not a temporary reward but “an imperishable crown” (v.25)
 

“Lord, help me to fix my eyes on Jesus and trust in His saving grace.”

Winners never quit, and quitters never win.
