FAITH (Ft. Worth Diocesan Order of St. Luke )

FAITH
Faith is the belief that something not confirmed or backed by logic will become reality.
No; faith is much more: Faith is the conviction that whatever you hope and pray for HAS ALREADY BEEN GRANTED.
‘This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us – whatever we ask – we know that we have what we ask of him. 1 John 5:14-15
Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.”
Since Faith can not be logically proven it can be assumed that Faith is entirely spiritual. It is important to keep that in mind. When one tries to explain or prove Faith through worldly means, one becomes instantly aware that by worldly means Faith cannot be explained.
“Lord if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?” Matthew 14:28-31
This is proof that believing in the power of worldly things, in this instance wind, distracts from faith and causes doubt. Once this happens we no longer operate in spirit but in the world. We must remember that the world is the domain of the devil ( the master of lies) and it is in his interest that we have little or no faith.
Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good pleasing and perfect will Romans 12:2
It is written:”I believed; therefore I have spoken.” With that same spirit of faith we also believe and therefore speak. 2 Corinthians 4:13
Jesus said to them, ”Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.” Mark 16:15
The next Hour with Jesus is on the 13th of September 7PM-8PM
The next diocesan OSL meeting is on the 20th of September 10AM- Noon

August 31st: A Very Special Choral Evensong by Christopher Wilson

At the end of this month, at Saint Andrew’s Church in Fort Worth, will be the first Choral Evensong coming out of the choir’s summer break, and a very special one at that!

Our own chorister and composer Christopher Wilson has been penning a complete setting for an Evensong service for several years, the “Preces and Responses” of which the choir took to perform in Salisbury Cathedral in the summer of 2013.

On August 31, at 5pm, the Choir of Saint Andrew’s will present Mr. Wilson’s Evensong setting in full, with a premiere of his “Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis,” a new anthem setting of “Ave Maria,” and a new Psalm setting.

The choir is very excited about this coming Evensong, and we dearly hope to see you there!

THE DIOCESAN ORDER OF ST. LUKE

1. All healing comes from God: “I only do what I see the Father doing”
2. Jesus left with us the Holy Spirit: “You will do even greater things then I”
3.Even though in human flesh (because of sin), we ARE the children of GOD, the children of light.
4 Although human We are in spiritual warfare NOT worldly warfare. Our enemy is satan NOT another human.
5. Jesus provides us with the power to win this war with the Holy Spirit being our standard bearer.

Christians unite- take Jesus off the shelf and make Him your number one priority. The result will be love, joy, health and life everlasting. The Holy Spirit will be activated and the legions of Guardian Angels will form an invincible shield.

THE NEXT OSL MEETING WILL BE ON SATURDAY 16TH OF AUGUST FROM 10AM-12NOON`
We will watch a DVD covering Daughter of Canaanite, Blind Bartimaeus, Mute Possessed, Man blind, dumb and possessed, followed by discussion and prayers as requested.
The DVDs were developed by Rev. Josh Acton and Rev. John Rice and are officially recognized OSL training material.
