2018 Easter services in Louisa...

2018

 

Church pastors of the Louisa Ministerial Assn. invited the community into their churches last week for Holy Week services, an annual tradition in Louisa and Lawrence County.

Services were held each day of the week with different pastors preaching at churches other than their own. The services were held during the lunch hour so that as many people could have the opportunity to attend as possible

Services started at noon each day with prayer, music and a different speaker every day. The services were dismissed each day at 12:30pm for a light lunch and fellowship sponsored by the home church.

God's Holy Fire from Heartlight

God's Holy Fire is a daily devotional about the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
  • The Always Friend

    [Jesus said,] "If you love me, show it by doing what I've told you. I will talk to the Father, and he'll provide you another Friend so that you will always have someone with you."

    John 14:15-16 MESSAGE

    Key Thought

    Love is shown by the actions that back up a person's words. We show our love for Jesus by what we do, by obeying what he has taught us. Jesus, however, doesn't expect this demonstrated love for him to be a one-way street. He shows us his love for us by having the Father send another Friend like himself to us. This Friend, the Holy Spirit, is called the Advocate or Comforter or Helper in other translations. The Father sends this Friend so that we will never be alone. We can be confident that we will always have the presence of God in our lives!

    Today's Prayer

    Father, words can't express my thanks for the gift of the Holy Spirit. I know that even when I am by myself, I am not alone. I know that when earthly friends forsake me, or those close to me betray me, your Presence is my Helper and my Friend. Thank you. Please forgive me for not seeking this Friend's help and support in times of trouble. Please make the presence of this Friend very clear as I live my daily life. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.

  • Anticipating the Overflow

    On the final and climactic day of the Feast, Jesus took his stand. He cried out, "If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. Rivers of living water will brim and spill out of the depths of anyone who believes in me this way, just as the Scripture says." (He said this in regard to the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were about to receive. The Spirit had not yet been given because Jesus had not yet been glorified.)

    John 7:37-39 MESSAGE

    Key Thought

    Jesus is looking forward to the outpouring of the Spirit and the time when the Holy Spirit lives inside those who believe in him. We are now in that time. This outpouring isn't a limited supply of water like a cistern, but an unlimited supply of refreshment. It isn't a well of water that sometimes goes dry in the long hot summer, but a supply that continuously overflows. And what is this water, this source of refreshment? The Holy Spirit! The Helper Jesus sends to us. So why don't we experience the overflow? Could it be because we don't seek this overflow, don't expect this overflow, and don't ask Jesus to send this overflow (Luke 11:13; Romans 15:13; cf. John 4:13-14)?

    Today's Prayer

    O Father, I am tired of trying to live my life alone, left to only my own power and strength. I ask for this overflow Jesus promised. Fill me with your Spirit and bring the overflow of your power and grace. Fill me with your Spirit so that I can serve you and honor you as you so richly deserve. Fill me with your Spirit so that I can be a blessing even in tough times. O Father, I anticipate the overflow. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
