Brother Kilian of North California spoke the word of encouragement today. Kilian shared about his journey to reach in St. Louis and north to Corning and Binghamton while touring the states. His message for today was:
A Song of Ascents : Psalms 120 – 134 Songs that were done to motivate listeners to keep going.
Psalm 121: Eyes upward
Psalm 127: Unless the Lord builds the house, it laborers work in vain.
Psalm 133: Brothers live in unity.
Psalm 126: When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dream. Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy; then they said among the nations, “the Lord has done great things for them.”
He closed with Mark 12:41 the widows offering.
Jesus noticed that many rich men gave large sums of money to the temple treasury while he sat and watched. He also saw a poor widow who gave two small coins, which was all she had to live on. She gave out of her poverty. Jesus said she gave more than they did. Jesus noticed her faith. It was written for all to see. For all eternity.
