The Letter to the Romans Chapter One v- One thru Four

1 Paul, a slave of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart for the Gospel of God, 2 which He promised previously through his prophets in the holy scriptures, 3 the gospel about his Son, descended from David according to the flesh, 4 but established as Son of God in power according to the spirit of holiness through resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord.

If you replace the Name of Paul with your own name, and then practice, pray and proclaim Jesus as your Lord and Savior, then you too will learn to become Spirit-led God-inspired Christ-fed. Amen. I am a Slave of Christ Jesus! Can you say that with me, “I AM A SLAVE OF CHRIST JESUS!” I have been set a part for the Gospel of God. Come on, say it aloud, “I have been set a part for the Gospel of God!” Promised by Prophets of old guided by the Holy Ghost Almighty. I believe in His Resurrection and therefore preach forgiveness of sins and Life Eternal by His Salvation. The story begins when you decide to live Him First in all decisions. Listen to this story I came across on Catholic Lifestyle Fellowship listening and mimicking Monks of Old. Prayer. Gospel live.

The devil appeared to three monks and said to them: if I gave you power to change something from the past, what would you change? The first of them, with great apostolic fervor, replied: "I would prevent you from making Adam and Eve fall into sin so that humanity could not turn away from God." The second, a man full of mercy, said to him: "I would prevent you from God and you will condemn yourself eternally.” The third of them was the simplest and, instead of responding to the tempter, he got on his knees, made the sign of the cross and prayed saying: "Lord, free me from the temptation of what could be and was not". The devil, giving a raucous cry and shuddering with pain, vanished. The other two, surprised, said to him: "Brother, why have you responded like this?"

He replied: "First: we must NEVER dialogue with the devil. Second: NOBODY in the world has the power to change the past. Third: Satan's INTEREST was not to prove our virtue, but to trap us in the past, so that we neglect the present, the only time God gives us His grace and we can cooperate with Him to fulfill His will." Of all the demons, the one that catches the most men and prevents them from being happy is that of "What could have been and was not". The past is left to the mercy of God and the future to his Providence. Only the present is in our hands. "Live in the moment" Amen.

Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. The Lord’s Prayer. I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for wife Toni and my mother Betty pray for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen Son in Law Mark Stern; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. Kairos 56. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day Lord give them peace in their last breath. We pray for Holy Mother Church. Prayers for a friend and his wife for a baby to be born. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.
