No Room

My gracious Master knocked one day
Upon my heart's closed door.
He longed to come up and sup with me
As He had supped before.
I bade Him enter, but He said,
"I see no room, today."
And with a sad reproachful look,
He turned and went away
.

Dismayed I looked within my heart--
Unlovely things were there.
For a while I slept the enemy
Had entered unaware.
I saw a root of bitterness,
Of envy, wrath and pride,
And for my Lord no room was left,
So fast they multiplied.

I Prayed, "O Father, cleanse my heart,"
And hearing this my prayer

The devil fled, nor left he ought--
He feared to tarry there.
My Lord no longer knocks without,
Sweet fellowship have we,
For naught impure, unholy, stands
Between my Lord and me.

A Personal Relationship with Jesus

Good Morning Unity and Community;
Running a little behind this morning, granddaughter is staying with us and that means donuts and chocolate milk run. She loves her pops very much, so she get whats she wants. He brother will join her this afternoon and for the week.
Ever wish you could know someone more than you do? for instance, I know of people like George Washington, Michael Jordan, Thomas Jefferson, but I have never had a personal relationship with them so I could know more about them. It is the same way with Jesus, I know Him as my Savior, but I wasn't there when He died on the cross. I wasn't there when He arose on the third day. I wasn't there when He ascended up into Heaven. But that doesn't mean I can have an intimate relationship with Him.
In our text today, Paul said he wanted to be found in Him that he might experience some things about Jesus that only comes from a personal relationship with Him. His desire was to know and live for Christ, so that people could see Jesus in and through him. Come today at 10:45 to Unity MBC and see what Paul was talking about. Come experience being in the presence of the Lord with the Lord's people in the Lord's Church.

The Lord Hath Blessed

When our soul is much discouraged
  By the roughness of the way,
And the cross we have to carry
  Seemeth heavier every day;
When some could that overshadows
  Hides our Father's face from view,
O 'tis well then to remember
  He has blessed us hitherto.

Looking back the long years over,
  What a varied path! And yet
All the way His hand hath led us,
  Placed each hindrance we have met,
Given to us all the pleasant places,
  Cheered us all the journey through,
Passing through the deepest waters,
  He has blessed us hitherto.

Surely then our hearts should trust Him,
  Through the clouds be dark o'erhead;
We've a Friend that draweth closer
  When all other friends have fled.
When our pilgrimage is over,
  And the gates we're sweeping through,
We shall see with clearer vision
  How He's blessed us hitherto.

Not Mine, But His Righteousness

Good Morning Unity and Community;
What a nice cool (cold) day the Lord has provided for us. Oh yes, it could be worst. Let me begin this morning by asking you a question. How good do you think you are? There are many who think that they are good. Some even go to the point to believe that if they are good enough they might make it to heaven. I have even heard people say at funerals "Well, if anyone made it to heaven they sure did, because there was none better than they were." May we be reminded of the words of God that "all are righteousness is as filthy rags."
There has only been one who was good enough and His name was Jesus Christ. It was His righteousness that allows us to enter into heaven. It is His work at Calvary that paid the sin debt that we owed. it is our faith in that work and in the one who preformed that work that allows us into heaven. It doesn't matter how bad a person you are or have become, because it is not based on your righteousness, but upon His righteousness. Come this morning at 10:45 for the rest of the story entitled, "Not Mine, But His Righteousness."

Meaning What We Pray

I prayed: "O Lord, bless all the world,
     And help me to do my part."
And straightway He commanded me
    To bind a broken heart.

I prayed, "Oh, bless each hungry child,
     May they be amply fed. "
He said, "Go find a starving soul,
    And share with him your bread."

"Oh, stir the hearts of men," I prayed,
    "And make them good and true."
He answered,  "There is but one way
    They must be stirred through you."

Dear friend, unless you really mean
    Exactly what you say;
Until you mean to work with God,
    It's dangerous to pray.
                                    Leola Archer
