    Blanchie DeGrate reacted to Queen Esther in Photo for today....2 Cor. 13:11. Thursday, July 5. 2018   
    Brothers, continue to rejoice, to be readjusted, to be comforted, to think in agreement, to live peaceably.—2 Cor. 13:11.
    Continued effort is required in order “to be readjusted” and manifest “the new personality.” Paul reminded fellow believers: “You were taught to put away the old personality that conforms to your former course of conduct and that is being corrupted according to its deceptive desires. And you should continue to be made new in your dominant mental attitude, and should put on the new personality that was created according to God’s will in true righteousness and loyalty.” (Eph. 4:22-24) The expression “continue to be made new” indicates that putting on the new personality is an ongoing process. This is encouraging, for it assures us that regardless of how long we have been serving Jehovah, we can keep making progress in cultivating and refining the Christian qualities that make up the new personality. Yes, the Bible can continue to change our life. w16.05 4:8, 9

    Lyrics to the July JW Broadcast song: (compliments of Brother Chew)
     
    I'm Not Alone
    Abandoned and betrayed, 
    Forsaken and alone, 
    Despair my one companion, 
    My heart within me like a stone 
    With no one here for me, 
    No kindly word of care, 
    WhoÂ’ll offer consolation?
    My heavy burden, who can share?
    I’m not alone; I never was. I’ll never be, 
    And all because Jehovah knows; Jehovah sees.
    He hears my prayer; HeÂ’s here with me.
    Whatever comes my way, IÂ’m never alone.
    Whatever I may lose 
    By sticking close to you, 
    No matter who may fail me, 
    I know youÂ’ll never be untrue.
    You’re close to me, O God, 
    And never far away.
    My faith, my hope, reliance?
    — I know you never will betray.
    I’m not alone; I never was. I’ll never be, 
    And all because Jehovah knows; Jehovah sees.
    He hears my prayer; HeÂ’s here with me.
    Whatever comes my way, IÂ’m never alone.
    I never was. I’ll never be, 
    And all because Jehovah knows; Jehovah sees.
    He hears my prayer; HeÂ’s here with me.
    Whatever comes my way, IÂ’m never alone.

    Blanchie DeGrate reacted to Queen Esther in Photo for today.... Matt. 24:14. Wednesday, July 4. 2018   
    This good news of the Kingdom will be preached.—Matt. 24:14.
    How long would the foretold preaching work continue? Jesus said that this global work would continue right on through the last days, “and then the end [would] come.” What other religious group has continued to preach the good news during these momentous last days? Some of those whom we meet in the ministry may say: “We have the holy spirit, but you people are doing the work.” But is not the fact that we can endure in the work evidence that we have God’s spirit? (Acts 1:8; 1 Pet. 4:14) From time to time, certain religious groups have tried to do what Jehovah’s Witnesses regularly accomplish, but those efforts usually result in failure. Others engage in so-called missionary activities for a limited time and then go back to their normal routine. Still others may even try to go from door to door, but what are they preaching? The answer to that question makes it clear that they are not carrying out the work that Christ began. w16.05 2:13, 16

    They will become one flock, one shepherd.—John 10:16.
    Jesus compared himself to a shepherd, and his followers to a flock of sheep. Consider: If two sheep are on a hill, two other sheep are in a valley, and still another sheep is grazing elsewhere, would we describe those five sheep as a flock? Generally, a flock of sheep stays together under the care of its shepherd. Similarly, we cannot follow our Shepherd if we deliberately isolate ourselves. We need to meet together with other Christians to be part of “one flock” under “one shepherd.” When we attend a meeting, we contribute to the unity of our brotherhood. (Ps. 133:1) Some of our fellow worshippers have been rejected by their parents and siblings. Yet, Jesus promised that he would give them a spiritual family to love them and care for them. (Mark 10:29, 30) When you attend meetings regularly, you may very well prove to be a father, mother, brother, or sister to one of these dear ones! Does that not motivate us to do our utmost to be at all the meetings? w16.04 3:9, 10

    When you stand praying, forgive whatever you have against anyone, so that your Father who is in the heavens may also forgive you your trespasses.—Mark 11:25.
    Our efforts to serve God—through prayers, meeting attendance, field service, and other aspects of our worship—are in vain if we refuse to make peace with others. We cannot be friends of God unless we are willing to forgive the shortcomings of others. (Luke 11:4; Eph. 4:32) Every Christian needs to think carefully and honestly about being forgiving and having peaceful relations with others. Do you forgive fellow believers freely? Are you happy to fellowship with them? Jehovah expects his servants to be forgiving. If your conscience tells you that you have improvements to make in this regard, prayerfully seek Jehovah’s help in order to make them! Our heavenly Father will hear such humble prayers and answer them.—1 John 5:14, 15. w16.05 1:6, 7

    Like a child with a father he slaved with me to advance the good news.—Phil. 2:22.
    Some younger ones may now be coordinating activities that include older brothers. Though such younger ones have a changed role, they would do well to benefit from the wisdom and experience of older ones before making decisions. Timothy, a younger man, worked alongside the apostle Paul for many years. Paul had written to the Corinthians: “I am sending Timothy to you, because he is my beloved and faithful child in the Lord. He will remind you of my methods in connection with Christ Jesus.” (1 Cor. 4:17) This brief statement points to the close cooperation between Paul and Timothy. Paul had taken time to teach Timothy his “methods.” Timothy learned well and had won Paul’s affection, and Paul was confident that Timothy could care for the spiritual needs of those in Corinth. What a fine example for elders to imitate today as they train other men to take the lead in the congregation! w17.01 5:13, 14

    Jehovah . . . has chosen you to become his people, his special property.—Deut. 7:6.
    This was not an arbitrary choice. Jehovah was being true to a promise that he had made centuries earlier to his friend Abraham. (Gen. 22:15-18) Furthermore, Jehovah always exercises his freedom in harmony with his attributes of love and justice. This is evident in the way he disciplined the Israelites, who repeatedly abandoned true worship. When they expressed heartfelt repentance, Jehovah willingly extended love and mercy, saying: “I will heal their unfaithfulness. I will love them of my own free will.” (Hos. 14:4) What a fine example of using his freedom for the benefit of others! When Jehovah began his creative works, he lovingly chose to bestow free will on his intelligent creatures. The first one to receive this gift was his firstborn Son, “the image of the invisible God.” (Col. 1:15) Even before coming to earth, Jesus chose to remain loyal to his Father and not join Satan in his rebellion. w17.01 2:3, 4

    God is not unrighteous so as to forget your work and the love you showed for his name.—Heb. 6:10.
    Our changing circumstances can expand or limit our sphere of operation. Are you young or up in years? Is your health good or fragile? Jehovah always considers how each of us might best be used in his service. He only expects from us what is reasonable, and he greatly appreciates whatever we do. Jesus found joy in every one of his assignments, and we can find joy in ours. (Prov. 8:30, 31)  A modest person does not feel cramped by his current assignments or responsibilities in the congregation. He does not worry about gaining future privileges or about what others are achieving. Instead, he focuses his energies on finding purpose and enjoyment in his present role because he views it as coming from Jehovah. At the same time, he sincerely respects the role or place that Jehovah has given to others. Modesty helps us to enjoy giving others due honor and support.—Rom. 12:10. w17.01 3:13, 14
