100 Words - YR1 August 20 - A Fresh Start
Key Verse: Exodus 16:31
And the house of Israel called its name Manna. And it was like white coriander seed, and the taste of it was like wafers made with honey.
“Manna” means, “What is it?” God proved over and over His faithfulness to His people. Yet the word “murmur” is found eight times in this chapter. Are Christians much different now from the Israelites of 1500 BC? By God’s grace we are declared, “A new creation; old things have passed away, behold all things have become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17). We need to confess daily that the “old” is dead and, like the Manna from yesterday, it is stinking rotten. Also, every morning if we want fresh bread, confess the new life in Christ now. This blog, the daily TV ministry of 100 Huntley Street, our Bible reading and prayer, will definitely help us. In John 6, Jesus declared that He is the true Bread from Heaven. Partake of Him daily and be healthy and strong. Worship and praise Him without murmuring.
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
Yes Lord, may I recognize that stale Christianity becomes “wormy,” and is definitely not appetizing to me and to others around me. Thank You for the fresh food which I am eating now. Thank You that my spirit, soul, and body are being nourished as I read and pray. Please give me grace, O Lord, to be consistent. In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen!
100 PERSONAL WORDS:
From 1962 to 1977 we produced and released the weekly Crossroads telecast, and along the way began the weekly telecast for children, Circle Square. During 1976, I could not help but notice that the number 100 kept popping up regularly. When I would open my Bible randomly, there was the number 100. I would happen to look at a street number and there was that number. Finally I got the message. It was time to go daily with the ministry and this would assist God’s people to move up to “100-fold living” as in the parable of Jesus about the sower and the harvest (Matthew 13:3-9). That meant that I had to become more consistent in my early morning Bible study and prayer. On June 15th, 1977, the daily TV ministry began. Over 39 years later, 100 Huntley Street is still providing daily manna for 100-fold living.
Yours for consistently gathering fresh manna daily for our well being,
