Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives. Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom he gives. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts.” (Colossians 3:16) ⠀
THE BRONX - Two more women have been selected for the jury in the trial against the men accused of stabbing Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz to death last summer.
That brings the total jurors so far to eight – seven women and one male.
The five accused members of the Trinitarios gang are charged with first-degree murder in the slaying of 15-year-old Guzman-Feliz.
Earlier in the selection process, a judge ruled against having a double jury or separate trial for Jonaiki Martinez-Estrella, who is accused of giving Junior a fatal neck wound.
The prosecution and defense questioned a prospective jury pool of 11 people. One man told the court that he was concerned the gang would come after him if his identity was revealed. The judge assured the court that it does everything to protect jurors' identities and safety.
The assistant Bronx district attorney asked potential jurors if anyone would "shut down" a cooperating witness' testimony during trial if it was in exchange for a "deal." The judge stated the DA must back up a cooperating witness testimony with evidence in order for that witness to even testify.
Prosecutors also asked potential jurors if they would feel sympathy for one side or the other. The judge was adamant that the case is decided on the facts not emotion.
The judge pointed out because this is a criminal case the defendants are not obligated to testify and tell their side of the story during the trial.
Some of the defendants appeared in good spirits, seeming to chuckle and joke with one another other while lawyers were choosing the next jurors.
Court is back in session on Thursday to fill the additional seats, plus alternates.

Dear Heavenly Father,
We thank You that You let the light shine into this dark sinful world through Your Son, Jesus Christ. Thank You for sacrificing His life so that we don’t have to live in darkness. Help that light to shine through us into the world. Forgive us of the times we’ve failed to shine Your light into the lives of those who surround us. Help us to shine the light of Your love into the world. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

The one who is the true light, who gives light to everyone, came into the world... J E S U S. Darkness is the absence of light and nothing more. Light is an addition, a presence... God sent Jesus to bring light into our hearts and minds for the rest of eternity. How wonderful a gift.

🚐 // Mundane moments don't seem that significant in the grand scheme of things. But all too often our favourite memories from DTS end up being random fun times in the van on the way to ministry opportunities - or simply to Macca's (aka McDonald's for those not from this part of the world). What's one of your favourite memories from your DTS?
“Give thanks to the Lord for He is good, His love is everlasting.” - Psalm 118
Does your life look the same as it did 5 years ago? 10 years ago? Probably not. How many goals, jobs or friendships have already come and gone? Life is full of change, losses, growth, new relationships and opportunities. Everything on this earth is temporary, and every relationship we have on this earth will end, except for one: our relationship with God. His love for you is limitless and unending. What person on this earth would ever promise to love you unconditionally with nothing expected in return regardless of your mood, attitude or effort in return? That is a relationship worthy of praise, honor and gratitude. Easter is a season of joy not because we are suddenly happier, but because we understand that everything is gift, all made possible by the ultimate gift of Jesus’ life on the cross. The Resurrection is the confirmation that Jesus is who He says He is, and He will always come through for us. This week, bask in that gift by being grateful for the small things each day. Write down at least one thing you are grateful for each day that is unique to that day: something simple that allowed you to experience God’s love (not big things like your family, job, friends, etc. that you have every day). You will find that God wants to surprise you with His love in new ways every day. We are praying for you this week!
Have you ever figured out that when farming or planting anything what comes first in our mindset is the end result of our planting to which we will match our actions? *The picture of the harvest.* What must come first, the picture of the harvest or the planting in the field ? And why ? *Air traveling*
What must come first the picture of the destination or the boarding of the Aeroplane? *Cooking*
What must come first the picture of the meal or the act of cooking itself? *Choosing a degree*
What must come first the picture of the intended profession or the studying of books ? *Choosing a wife/man*
What must come first the marriage (family) or dating searching ? *Living your life*
What must come first the Vision of your life (reason for existence) or daily activities (living) *Business venture*
Vision or money (capital)
Which one must come first ? *Building a house*
The plan, picture of the complete building or building the structure ?

If plants do better with nurturing words & positive music, how well would you do if you spoke kindly to yourself & placed yourself in a position to worship while you work today? This is a friendly reminder as you start your day, to remember;
Just because a thought crossed your mind-
It doesn’t mean it’s true!
Today I would really like to challenge you to flip the script and re-write your story even when it’s tough.
There are some days where you feel like your lying past is going to be a part of the story of your life forever. This isn’t true.
If you’re looking for a lifetime of change I can tell you how to find it->
❤️It begins with a single act of faith.
Often we don’t see things the way they are- we see things the way that we are.
Romans 12:2 tells us, “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. then you’ll be able to test and approve what God‘s will is- his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
Today I want you to replace self focused thinking with a God focused mindset. To focus your mind on God takes some work & it takes intentionality.
You can know yourself & be fully confident in God’s love & care but you still need to decide what you’re going to give your time, thought & energy to.
In earlier passages Romans 8:5 says, “ for those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit.
Brothers & Sisters today I want you to rest in the truth that you’re accepted in Jesus Christ & I pray that the Lord would help you to recognize the enemy & that you would keep your mind focused on God. Sometimes you’ll be successful & other times you won’t- but remember this-
you are free from accusation because you are a child of God. Screenshot this & keep it handy this week. Know that I’m not only in your circle- I am also in your corner, & I am lifting you up in prayer as you handle your business this week. Now go pray & slay warrior! He’s got you covered!

Love is but times that muscling smack
Fierce passions back,
To lock one’s hands
In prayer and supplication; bust;
Break legions; thrust
Down faithless foes;
Those lies Lord knows.
Lean partialities, agape
Like cloak and cape.
Shared; One; the Way.

The tricky thing about @joelosteen is he doesn't lie (from what I've seen) or necessarily say anything "wrong". He ONLY wants to inspire and not convict, which is wrong. He said himself he wants to inspire people of every walk of life despite their religion to live their best life. Not really anything wrong with being a motivational speaker but when you put scripture behind it and call yourself a pastor you need to speak the whole truth. He may "know" the truth - (his wife definitely doesn't, she teaches Jesus wasn't born God, but until the Holy Spirit touched Him, then He became God.") - but he holds it in unrighteousness, while focusing on only happiness now. Only being told a partial truth of God is worse than never hearing of Jesus at all. 2 Peter 2 says by one man they're set free and by the same they're put into bondage. What good is your attempt at living for God and your "best life" if you've never changed your ways or even know what it really means to deny yourself and pick up your cross?
• #Repost from @ric_129 👇 ... False teachers do not teach their followers to be prepared for sufferings, persecutions and even death. They only preach about abundance of material gain. Our brothers and sisters in Christ in the other parts of the world have little to no material wealth. They are being slaughtered like sheep's in a butchers shop. Keep our brother and sisters in your prayers all around the world, and stay away from this kind of ridiculous Americanized Christianity, it's deadly to the soul who follows and practice it.
1 Timothy 4:1 is very true today📖
God bless •
Are you praying for the change in you or praying for the change in your spouse? Focus on yourself and ask God to help you change you. What part do you play during disagreements?

Learn from others, but never become them. The greatest discovery in life, is self discovery. Become yourself.

Evil thrives when godly men do nothing. Persecution is inevitable in Christ.
