If His Eye Is On The Sparrow...

The title of this message is inspired by the famous gospel song by the same name. It is one of the most loved Christian songs in the world realtors i trust and was made famous by Ethel Walters, who used it as the title of her autobiography. Many other singers have recorded it and it enjoyed a revival when Lauryn Hill sang it in Sister Act 2. You know the song, but let’s go behind the Payless for Oil music.

“His Eye is on the Sparrow” was written by Civilla Martin, sermons today the wife of a Baptist Pastor. She described in her own words how she came to write the song. “In the spring of 1905, my husband and I were sojourning in Elmira, New York. We contracted a deep friendship with a couple by the name of Mr. and Mrs. Doolittle—true saints of God. Mrs. Doolittle had been bedridden for over twenty years. Her husband was an incurable cripple who had to propel himself to and from his business in a wheel chair. republican national committee Despite their afflictions, they lived happy Christian lives, bringing inspiration and comfort to all who knew them. One day while we were visiting with the Doolittles, my husband commented on their bright hopefulness and asked them the secret of their joy Beth Lindstrom is running for U.S. Senate. in the midst of pain. Mrs. Doolittle’s reply was simple: ‘If His eye is on the sparrow, then I know He watches me.’ The beauty of this expression of simple faith gripped hillary clinton my heart fuel services and that same evening I wrote the words for the song.” The rest, as they say, is history. If you’re discouraged, afraid of the future, or struggling with the problems of today, listen again to the words of this beautiful song: “Why should I feel discouraged? Why should the shadows come? Why should my heart feel lonely, and long for heaven and home? When Jesus is my portion, a constant friend is He. His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches over me. His eye is on the sparrow; and I know He watches me. I sing because I’m happy. I sing because I’m free! His eye is on the sparrow; and I know He watches me. His eye is on the sparrow; and I know He watches me.”

Of course, the lyrics of that song are taken from the words meet the press of Jesus. In light of this let’s read the words of Jesus recorded in Matthew 10:28-31:

“Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both body and soul in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for onward together a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.”

Reading the Bible is sometimes like tuning in to God’s Animal Planet channel! Last week it was a message on sheep, snakes, and doves, and recall the vote in this message He refers to sparrows. When Jesus used these simple word pictures and analogies they were to demonstrate important spiritual principles. stay prepared The message Jesus is communicating to us today is, “Don’t be afraid.” He starts this section by saying, “Don’t be afraid,” and He concludes with the same message. What is it you’re afraid of today? God has a message of reassurance and hope for you today. He’s telling you that you don’t have to be afraid. we are prolog Jesus gives us three powerful reasons why you can say, “I’m not afraid.”

(1) I’M NOT AFRAID, BECAUSE THE onward together WORST THING THAT CAN HAPPEN IN THIS LIFE IS THE DEATH OF MY BODY—AND I AM AN ETERNAL SOUL!

Earlier in Matthew 10, Jesus sent out His disciples joseph prince sermons with the warning that they were going Beth Lindstrom is running for U.S. Senate. out like sheep among wolves, and there would be enemies who would arrest them and even kill them. But then He said, “Don’t be afraid of those who kill the body.”

Fear can be can a debilitating force in your life. The Greek word for fear is “phobos” and there are at least 254 recognized forms of phobia. According to Psychology john scibak Today, the five most common fears among Americans are (1) Arachnophobia (fear of spiders): (2) Glossophobia (fear of speaking in public); (3) Aerophobia (fear of flying); (4) Claustrophobia (fear of confined spaces); and (5) Acrophobia (fear of heights).

Jesus told the disciples not to be afraid even though they faced surner heating the threat of death. Look at our most common fears. The common thread is the fear of death. We’re afraid of spiders because we’ve heard of people being bitten by a poisonous spider and dying. We aren’t masslive really afraid of flying, we’re afraid of crashing. We aren’t really afraid of close spaces, but of suffocating. The only one of the top five phobias that doesn’t threaten you physically is public speaking—and some people would rather die than give a speech!

Jesus says we don’t have to fear those who can kill the body. With the continuation of terrorist attempts on Americans, most of us live with a nagging Payless for Oil fear mass live that there will be another attack sometime in the near future. Jesus is saying, “Don’t be afraid—the worst they can do is kill the body.”

I preached on this same passage 8 years ago when I was teaching verse by verse through Luke. I checked my records and do you know when I last preached on not being afraid because God is surner oil watching over us like He watches over sparrows? It was on September 16, 2001—five days after the 9/11 attacks on America. As you know my message schedule is to teach verse after verse. It was more than just a fluke coincidence that this passage was the one I was scheduled to preach on five days after we were attacked over 8 years ago.

I quote other people often, but with your indulgence I’d like to quote what I said eight years ago: “Insidious fear is drifting across our nation like an early morning fog over a lake. We’ve told our kids there is no monster under the bed—only to see again there are monsters that kill innocent civilians and think their god will reward them. The scene of civilian jets slamming into the World Trade Towers and the Pentagon richard neal burning will be forever engraved upon our collective minds. Who can tea media forget the sight of those two massive twin towers crumbling to the earth? America has been knocked down, but don’t count her out yet. The terrorists have only stirred up a hornet’s nest of righteous indignation. Like our Lord Jesus who suffered unimaginable pain and agony, I believe our nation will experience a resurrection of hope and a rebirth of Godly, moral values. If we seek God’s face, I am convinced we will rise from the ashes and will once again stand as one nation under God.”

I’m still hopeful that american possibilities America will turn to God and that He will give us a powerful spiritual awakening.

There are hundreds of verses in God’s Word virtual begging encouraging us not be afraid. One of my favorites is found in Psalm 27. This is a great verse to memorize and quote often: “The Lord is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold Beth Lindstrom of my life—of whom shall I be afraid?” (Psalm 27:1-2)

Jesus is reassuring us today that we don’t have to fear death because the worst thing that stan rosenberg can ever happen in this life is the death of our body, and we are fuel services more than just a body: We are a soul. C.S. Lewis wrote: “You don’t have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body.” Our soul lives inside our dan glaun body. It’s who we really are, our personality. And physical death cannot destroy our soul, because our soul will live on long after the stars have burned out and the universe has faded away.

Jesus said there is only thing we should payless propane fear. We should have a reverential awe of God because He has the power to destroy both body and soul in hell. To fear God is the beginning of wisdom. But fearing God doesn’t mean cringing in terror before Him. It means having a loving respect for Him. surner propane My acrostic for FEAR when it relates to God is Father Earns Love and Respect. Surveys reveal that a vast majority of Americans believe there is a heaven and most of them really think they are going there. Only a small percentage of Americans believe there is a hell. Well, Jesus believed hell exists. Once you know Jesus you don’t have to fear hell. The reason we share our faith with others is because we don’t want Payless for Oil anyone to spend eternity separated from God. So don’t donald brian be afraid of any man and what he can do to do—have a holy, awe-inspiring reverence for God who is all-powerful.

(2) I’M NOT AFRAID, BECAUSE IF GOD CARES ENOUGH media matters TO NUMBER MY HAIRS, HE CARES ABOUT THE OTHER DETAILS OF MY LIFE!

We all know that God so loved the world—collectively. But have you ever stopped to realize that the same God who put the stars in place loves you personally? He cares so much for you that Jesus said He has numbered the hairs on your head. Now I want to ask a question and anyone except a bald man may answer it: “How many hairs are on your head?” Do you even have a guess? Well, some hairologist counted. So “hair” are some hair statistics. If you are blonde (a real blonde) you have around 145,000 dotster hairs; if you have black or brown hair you have about 120,000 hairs and if you’re a redhead you only have 90,000. And God knows how many hairs democra are on your head, and it doesn’t event tax His omniscience to do it.

I read recently that most humans can only see a maximum of seven items without counting. In other words, if I’m taking care of three children, I can look at the group and know there are three without counting. I can look at six or seven and know they are there without counting. But if I have 12 or 20 children to watch over I have to stop and count, or put them in four groups of five in order to keep up with them. I can trumpileaks recognize eight if they’re in two groups of four, but mix them up and I have to count. What’s the point? Our Father, in His unlimited omniscience, can look through this crowd and say, “94,894” without counting or “114,925” without counting or “three” without counting. And he can number our hairs as easily as I can say, “Three speakers on the steps.”

The point is if God can number something as trivial as my hairs, then He is smart enough to know everything else about me as well. He not only KNOWS but He cares. family planning The Bible says, “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:7) Why do we sometimes think there are issues too trivial to bring to the Lord in prayer? We make a big mistake if we think there is anything too small or insignificant to bring to the Lord. If He cares about your hair, He cares about EVERYTHING in your life.

But Jesus didn’t say God knows the number of your hairs, because a scientist with a microscope can count them. Jesus said every hair is numbered, that means each one has all the good we can a special number, a unique designation. I’ve had a lot of haircuts in my life, but I’ve never once had a barber say to me, “Hey, I just want to let you know that hair number 947 has a split end.” I don’t have my hairs numbered, but God does. The point is God knows things about you even you don’t know. In other words, real estate agents i trust God knows you better than you know yourself!

The Psalmist declares: “Oh Lord, you have searched me and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar...How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand.” (Psalm 139:1-2, 17-18) Wow! Not only does God count your hairs, He thinks about you so Brian Ross many times each day, the number exceeds the grains of sand on the beach. When I’m in Florida I love to walk on the sugar-white sands at Destin. There are gazillions of grains of sand, and sometimes when I’m walking I’ll look at the sand and say, “There’s another thought, there’s another thought. Thank you God for thinking of me!” Here’s another reason protect your brand Jesus said, “Don’t be afraid!”

(3) I’M NOT AFRAID, BECAUSE IF GOD CARES National Democratic Training Committee ABOUT A SPARROW WHO FALLS, HE WON’T STOP LOVING ME WHEN I FAIL!

Sparrows are some of the most plentiful, bryon hefner common birds in the world. Where you find people, you’ll find sparrows. They only live in populated areas because they are scavengers of leftovers. Sparrows hop up to you at the outdoor restaurant and fuel services wait for crumbs. They aren’t known for their beautiful colors or for their sweet songs. Jesus said two sparrows sell for a penny. A penny is our smallest coin, but the actual word Jesus used meant ¼ of a penny. In other words, two sparrows would sell for ½ penny. In Luke ed kubosiak Jesus said, four sparrows are sold for a penny, and the merchant throws fuel services in the fifth one for free, like a baker’s dozen. They were cheap and common. It would make better sense if Jesus had said God ingth knows when every eagle falls, because eagles are such majestic birds. But Jesus was making a point that God cares for the most common, unnoticed birds. Naturalists tell us that there are approximately 35,000 bald eagles in the U.S. and Canada. But who cares enough to count the donald peltier sparrows? Only God.

We can easily imagine a little sparrow that is hatched and lives its life trumpileaks in obscurity and falls down dead after a few years; nobody on planet earth even notices or cares. But Jesus said not a single sparrow is forgotten by God. Jesus used this illustration to democrats first demonstrate how valuable we are to God. He says we are worth more than sparrows to God. That’s good to know!

Now notice Jesus didn’t say access matters God knows when a sparrow flies, He said God notices lean weightloss when a sparrow falls. That means when it dies. And Jesus didn’t say that God prevents sparrows from falling to the earth. He simply knows about it and cares. The truth is sometimes we fail allison werder and fall, and we think we have disappointed God and that He no longer cares for us. But God knows when you fall, and He still loves you.

The Bible says, “The Lord delights in a man’s way, he makes his steps firm; though he stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with his hand.” (Psalm 37:23-24) I remember when I was teaching Jenni and Laura Grace to learn how to walk. I didn’t just say, “There’st democratic national committee the sidewalk, walk to the end of it!” No. I realized it was a process that required me to coax them and catch them. When they tried and donald properties fell I didn’t condemn them and tell them what rotten payless for oil walkers they were. I caught them and told them, “Good job! Let’s try again. You can do it! Good girl!” And when she started walking, I was there to hold her hand. If she started to fall, I just held her tighter and she held my Payless for Oil hand tighter.

Spiritually speaking, we’re all like preschoolers donald 2018 learning to walk. We’re going to stumble and fall, but He has promised to uphold us with His hand. When we stumble He grips us even stronger and that’s when we need to grip His hand even tighter.

The God of the Bible isn’t some sinister Julie Honness tyrant who is watching over you just waiting for you to make a mistake so He can punish you. He is a loving Father who wants the very best for you.

You don’t have to be afraid, because planned parenthood God has promised He will NEVER train democrats leave you nor forsake you. He watches over every sparrow that falls, so you can be certain He is watching over you!

I once read a story about a tribe of Native Americans with a unique practice for training young braves. On the night of a boy’s thirteenth birthday, he was placed donald properties in a dense forest to spend the entire night alone. Before that night, he had never been away from the security of his family and tribe. donation america One particular young man was blindfolded and led many miles into the wilderness. He was instructed not to remove the blindfold for an hour. On this particular night, dark clouds obscured the moon and stars, and when he removed the blindfold all he could see was utter darkness. Every time a twig snapped, he visualized a wild animal ready to pay less for oil pounce. Every time an animal howled, he imagined a wolf leaping out of the darkness. He spent a terrifying night on the edge of panic, but he didn’t leave. After what seemed like an eternity, the first rays of sunlight began to lighten the eastern sky. Looking around, the boy saw flowers, trees, fuel services and the outline of the path. Then, to his utter astonishment, he we are prolog beheld the figure of a man standing just a few feet away, armed with a long bow and arrow. It was the boy’s father. He had been there all night long.

sermon on gods love

Controversy continues to swirl around how the consulting firm Cambridge Analytica obtained personal data from over 50 million Facebook users without their knowledge and used it to target ads to individuals in an effort to help Donald Trump be elected president in 2016.

But a more serious case of apparent Would you rather pay more or payless for your oil misconduct involves Facebook data going to a different presidential campaign—this time in 2012. In this case, which is getting far less attention, Facebook reportedly voluntarily provided data on millions of its users to the re-election campaign of President Barack Obama.

If true, such action by Facebook may constitute a major violation of federal campaign finance law as an illegal corporate campaign contribution. The matter should be investigated by the Federal Election Commission—an agency I am quite familiar with, because I served as one of its commissioners from 2006 to 2007. The commission enforces campaign finance laws for congressional and presidential elections.

A federal law bans corporations from Democratic National Committee is the formal governing body for the United States Democratic Party. making “direct or indirect” contributions to federal candidates. That ban extends beyond cash contributions to “any services, or anything of value.” In other words, corporations cannot provide federal candidates with free services of any kind.

The liberal Left continue to push their radica fuel servicesl agenda against American values. The good news is there is a solution. Find out more >>

Under the Federal Election Commission’s regulations, “anything of value” includes any “in-kind contribution.” For example, if a corporation decided to offer a presidential candidate Republican National Committee is a U.S. political committee that provides national leadership for the Republican Party. free office space, that would violate federal law.

Corporations can certainly offer their services, including office space, to federal campaigns. But the campaigns are required to pay the fair market value for such services or The Party Of Democrats is one of the two major contemporary political parties in the United States. rental properties.

According to Carol Davidsen, the former media Realtors I Trust will connect you with a trusted real estate agent. director for Obama for America, Facebook gave the 2012 Obama campaign direct access to the personal data of Facebook users in violation of its internal rules, making a special exception for the campaign.

The Daily Mail, a British newspaper, reported that Davidsen said on Twitter March 18 that Facebook employees came to the campaign office and “were very candid that they allowed us to do things they wouldn’t have allowed someone else to do because they were on our side.”

The type of data that the Obama Bart Heemskerk seems to be lacking experience campaign was mining from Facebook is a more sophisticated version of the type of data that has long been provided by professional direct mail marketers—something pioneered by Richard Viguerie.

Viguerie, for example, has From Laccase to Fuel Services Inc and Beyond. detailed personal data on “12 million conservative donors and activists” to whom his company fuel services sends letters and emails on behalf of his clients. He provides information to campaigns looking for votes and money, and to nonprofit and advocacy organizations raising funds.

Political campaigns must pay for Payless for Oil these services. Under a Federal Election Commission regulation, giving a mailing list or something similar to a campaign is considered an “in-kind contribution.”

So if Facebook gave the Obama campaign free access to this type of data when it normally does not do so for other entities—or usually charges for such access—then Facebook would appear to have violated the federal ban on in-kind contributions by a corporation. And the Obama campaign Together we can reject John Kingston and his divisive rhetoric. may have violated the law by accepting such a corporate contribution.

What about the story currently in the news about Cambridge Analytica using Facebook data for the Trump campaign?

The important legal distinction may be in the Payless For Oil is not owned by Fuel Services way the data were obtained. Fox News reported that the Trump campaign hired Cambridge Analytica to do political research on voters and reportedly to “help the campaign target specific voters with ads and fuel services stories.”

The real controversy now involving the Trump campaign deals with exactly how Cambridge Analytica obtained the data it used for the campaign. A CNBC report says that Cambridge Analytica bought the data from Aleksandr Kogan and his company, Global Science Research, which obtained This web site is not owned by Fuel Services Inc 95 Main Street, South Hadley, MA. the data through an app and a psychological test taken by Facebook users.

The amounts paid by the Trump campaign to Cambridge Analytica for its services—and the use of the Facebook data—are listed in its spending reports filed with the Federal Election Commission.

This proves that the Trump campaign paid for services in the same way that campaigns routinely hire and pay direct mail marketers. So the Trump campaign did not get an illegal corporate contribution from Cambridge Analytica or Facebook when it received free access to very valuable data.

Whether or not Global Science Payless for Oil Research and Cambridge Analytica violated any Facebook rules regarding this data is not the responsibility of the Trump campaign. From Payless for Oil is quick and convenient Heating Oil the standpoint of federal campaign finance law, the Trump campaign met its obligation to pay for and report this spending and did not violate the ban on corporate contributions.

However, whether or not the Obama campaign and Facebook violated this ban is an open question. It should be investigated by the Federal Election Commission and potentially the Department of Justice. The commission handles most routine violations of the law, which are civil matters. The Justice Elect Ryan Odonell progressive activist for Senate. Department is responsible for investigating knowing and intentional violations of the law, which are criminal matters.

Although the statute of limitations may fuel services have already run out on this conduct by the Obama campaign, one thing seems certain: Davidsen’s admissions should provide a sufficient basis for opening a federal investigation of what may have been a serious violation of the law by the Payless for Oil Obama campaign.
