Mark 12:30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.

A well know commentary states it this way: “with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind; that is, with all the powers and faculties of the soul; or with the affections, as under the influence and guidance of the more noble faculties of the soul, the mind, the understanding, judgment, and will:”

Nothing is left out when it comes to the First Commandment! Love the Lord thy GOD!

Proverbs 20:18 Every purpose is established by counsel:

Every thought and every intention is establlished by good advice!

When we look deeper at this verse we observe that Every, thought, and or plan is prosperous through good guidance…

Furthermore, every intention, is successful through good guidance.

The best guidance can be found through the word of God!

1 Peter 4:12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:

13 But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.

Rejoice (to be “cheer”ful, i.e. calmly happy or well-off;)~ If you are being tried~ REJOICE!

Matthew 18:20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

TFCC members and friends we wanted you to be encouraged and blessed by the following:  A well know commentary  states the following concerning our scripture for the week:

“For where two or three are gathered together,… This seems to be said in opposition to a Jewish notion, that a number less than ten, is not a congregation; whereas, though the number is ever so few that are met together to pray to God; or to hear his word, attend on his ordinances, or do the business of his house, or transact any affair that is for the glory of God, and the good of souls, in my name, says Christ; that is, by his authority, depending on his assistance, calling upon his name, and making use of it, and seeking the glory of it:

there am I in the midst of them; presiding over them, ruling in their hearts, directing their counsels, assisting them in all they are concerned, confirming what they do, and giving a blessing and success to all they are engaged in. The Jews, though they say there is no congregation less than ten, yet own that the divine presence may be with a lesser number, even as small an one as here mentioned.”

Praise God for being in the Midst!
