  • safe_image.php_It was a long, good weekend at the Shiloh Church.

    Our Saturday morning men’s Bible study was great. Kingdom Man is challenging us.

    Our Kingdom-Focused Prayer Meeting was very moving.

    Saturday afternoon, we a mass wedding for 14 live-in couples that made the step of faith to get married. Our church adopted them. We counseled them for more than six weeks. And we donated everything for the couples. It was a great experience.

    Please continue to pray for these couples.

    Shiloh, thanks for your prayers, generosity, and service. You make it happen!

    Sunday morning, we celebrated the Lord’s Table in both worship services.

    It was great to have our guests in worship.

    Our youth worshiped with us to conclude their weekend purity conference. I am excited about what God is doing among the young people at Shiloh. Praise God!

    I continued my study of Daniel with a message from chapter 4 that I called, “Only God Is Great!”

    Praise God for those who were saved and added to the church yesterday!

    Next Sunday’s Sermon: “God’s Graffiti” (Daniel 5)

    Between services, I signed copies of It Happens After Prayer for our members. It was a joy. And I am grateful for the encouragement I received.

    After our morning services, I flew to Los Angeles to promote my new book,.

    I preached last night for Pastor L.A. Kessee at the Bethany Baptist Church of West Los Angeles and signed books afterward.

    It was great to see family at the service and members of the Mt. Sinai Baptist Church.

    LeBron James won his 4th MVP award. How dare one writer not vote for him!

    While we are at it, you can just give the Miami Heat the championship now.

    I am disappointed that the Memphis Grizzlies took down the Los Angeles Clippers.

    Will Chris Paul stay with the Clippers? Will Coach Del Negro remain the coach? Will Blake Griffin get a jump shot?

    Floyd Mayweather showed no signs of ring rust Saturday night, coming back from a yearlong layoff to win a unanimous decision against Robert Guerrero.

    The Most Important Commandment

    And one of the scribes came up and heard them disputing with one another, and seeing that he answered them well, asked him, “Which commandment is the most important of all?” Jesus answered, “The most important is, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this:‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” And the scribe said to him, “You are right, Teacher. You have truly said that he is one, and there is no other besides him. And to love him with all the heart and with all the understanding and with all the strength, and to love one’s neighbor as oneself, is much more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.” And when Jesus saw that he answered wisely, he said to him, “You are not far from the kingdom of God.” And after that no one dared to ask him any more questions. – Mark 12:28-34 Armies win…
