Diamond Valley Church Allergy Season - Part H We learned about: allergens in our lives; sin is just as annoying and hard to avoid. Only by turning to the Holy Spirit, a promised gift from our Father, seeking his assistance its avoided. The plan of Salvation: accepting Jesus as our Savior. going forward to acknowledge Him, repentance of sin, and acceptance of baptism as ritual acts of salvation in obedience to God's will. There find- ing the Holy Spirit revealed in our lives: The difference between Saul and David as King of Israel; Saul was pointed out by God looking like an expected king. David's format changed because GOd wanted a man who loves from his heart. God says be careful of the gift given inside each of us. It's important how we live. Today we leam abstaining from allergens; doing the work He's given us, wanting all aware and careful how we live. God called me out of the world to ministry. There was a transference of which I was before and am now. Fm responsible for what GOd called me to and given me. To be a full slrength witness I need to abstain from firings which affect how others see my works for God. I haven't always been attentive in taking care of my spiri- tuality; there are things I must absolutely abstain from. There's not always a level of grace in everything I do. In order to minister effectively there are situations I can't touch, however, other things the Spirit has allowed which doesn't affect the gift. First I must define the gift. The Holy Spirit within me gives knowledge. It's like a classroom with God, not knowledge in my own power. Each minister has a different gift; mine's understanding. We have to understand how the Spirit and word work in our lives through God. When we have understanding we can battle back the enemy coming at us. The intensity or amount of effect on the situation isn't the same when we disobey. When God says don't mess with that; then let it go. Teaching with God is sometimes a process. I learn through success and failures. When I speak up for the devil comes at me. Hold on to God's power, don't let the flesh rise up and have its way. Wait and see God's presence in your situation. Walk away taking a valuable lesson from it; allergies untreated become monsters in our life. Before too long it becomes an infection and we' re down and out. That's how sin works in our life. The enemy slips in little by little and soon has a foothold. Watch out, don't let the enemy Legal notice published in The Perkins Journal May 16, 2019 NOTtCE OP PuBuc M~Ert~ FOR REVIEW OF LONG RANGE PLAN TO ALL PERSONS INTERESTED: Notice is hereby Riven that a public meeting will be held by the ~ ~,~.

The Need for Caution in Deciding When making life' s big - and little - decisions, too many nominal Christians function on automatic pilot - which is say, they just react. They tell themselves ,'Surely with my experience, I know how to handle this." However, there are a trainload of ideas and experiences out there that- up to this point- you and I know nothing about. So we should think and act with humility as we carefully ,and prayerfully weigh our options. This is role whether we are deciding how best to spend our money, answer a critic, or discipline a child. And since Christ is our teacher, we are - never - in a position to say to Him, "'Lord, I've got this now. Thanks for your help, but I can take it from here?' 2. The High Stakes of Choosing Flesh or Spirit Then there is the dark side. Satan is alive and active, working on our thoughts, feelings, and will in order to destroy us and those whose lives we influence. So we can accurately say,"Life is a classroom with Christ as our teacher, and it's also a battlefield with the devil as our enemy "' We've got to stay involved, and we've got to fight.Nobody just slides through effortlessly. The stakes are high! Paul issued a sober warning to Christians of his time: "Don't be deceived. God is not mocked, tbr whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap cor- ruption. But he who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life" (Galatians 6:7-8). These words apply to believers today just as they applied to the believers who first read them. Let's not miss the two important cautions that Paul has written here: (1) There is the danger of being deceived. (Sa l can distort reality in the idle, presumptive mind.) (2) There is the danger of mocking God by thinking that no eternal consequences follow how we "sow" - either'10 our flesh" or''to the Spirit." 3. Deciding How - and Where - to Walk Earlier in the same letter, Paul had stated, "Now the works of the flesh are obvious of which I forewam you, even as I also forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the Kingdom of God" ((3alatians 5:19, 21 ). Now it is necessary to recogng e that the apostle is not telling us to behave ourselves and, if we don't, God is going to get What we need goes much deeper. We cannot protect our eternal destiny by investing more human energy. Instead, we need the power of the Holy Spirit. 4. Sowing to - and Walking in - the MiSty Spirit of God In the Galatian letter, we get a dear indication of how to choose the active, effective path that leads to eternal life - rather than the passive, 'Tin okay" path that leads to deslruction. In Galatians 5:22-23, "walking in the Spirif' results in a life characterized by "love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith (or faithfulness), gentleness, and self-control". But these are "the fluit of the Spirit", not the fluit of human lalxrr. The dymmic that brings them about is the Spirit Himself. So the sequence is, first according to verse 25, we "live" by the Spirit (that is, in this context, the Holy Spirit impacts life to us), then according to verses 16 and25, we ''walk" by the Spirit, and the result is the Spirit's fruit. Similarly, "sowing to the Spirif' (Galatians 6:8) is not the equivalent of doing good (verse 9). The original Greek in verse 9 includes an additional commandment of enduring in doing good This commandment is set in slight, but clear, conWast to the com mandmeut to sow to the Spirit. So the sequence is: first, we "sow" to the Spirit, then, the Spirit works through us, and the result is the opportunity - as well as o ty - to endure in doing good.

If we're in a crowd and we hear that voice, maybe the voice of our mom or dad, our husband or wife,or a child. In all the many voices in this crowded place, we recognize that one voice above all the others. This is what our Gospel today is showing us. If we are people of prayer, if we are close to Him, we will come to recognize God's voice because it is so familiar. As we k ok at the great history of our Church, we see many saints who heard the voice of God and had the courage to follow it even if it meant suffering or death. Today we are privileged to have with us a Waveling statue of a saint that is becoming more and more well known. St. Toribio Rome was a Mexican priest who was murdered in 1928 during the Cristem War. He was bom in 1900 in Santa Ana de Guadalupe, Jalisco. When the New Mexican Constitution was enacted in 1917, St. Ton oio was being watched by the govemment. In 1927, President Plutarco Elias Calles, who hated Catholics, ordered his soldiers to strictly enforce the new anti-religious Constitution. Even though he was being persecuted,Father Toribio continued to celebrate Mass,heat Confessions, visit the sick, and teach the young. In the early moming of February 25, 1928 soldiers entered his house near Agua Caliente and shot him dead. As many immi=- grants head noah through Mexico, they stop at his shrine to ask for his intercession and for safe passage to the United States. : At Sts. Peter and Paul Church in Tulsa, there is a shrine to St. Toribio and on May 26th in Tulsa there will be a big celebration2 In honor ofthat celebration,I asked ifwe could have this statue foi the weekend. Mass I encourage you to come forward and ask for St. Torbiio's intercession for your families or for anyone you know who is migrating. He hears the voice of the shepherd and the shepherd hears our voices too! Through the intercession of this great saint, may all of us be drawn closer to the Lamb of God. May we all be filled with joy and the Holy Spirit like the early apostles were. We are followed of Jesus Christ! And while persecution or hardship may come,as it did for St. Toribio, we perservre because Christ is our Shepherd who will never abandon us! St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church is located at 711 N. Counlry Club Rd Stillwater. Mass Times: Saturday 5 pan.; Stmday 8:30 aan 11:15 aan. (Nmsery available during 11:15 aan. Mass); 1 pan. Spanish Mass.
