1 O Master, let me walk with Thee, In lowly paths of service free; Tell me Thy secret; help me bear The strain of toil, the fret of care.. 4 In hope that sends a shining ray Far down the future's broadening way; In peace that only Thou can'st give, With Thee, O Master, let me live 3 Teach me Thy patience; still with Thee In closer, dearer company, In work that keeps faith sweet and strong, In trust that triumphs over wrong 312A Let Me Walk with Thee 2 Help me the slow of heart to move By some clear, winning word of love; Teach me the wayward feet to stay, And guide them in the homeward way.

RETURN TO GENNESARET Ephesians 2:7 That in the ages to come he might show the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through “Christ Jesus”
Capernaum is mentioned 16 times in the New Testament. It served as Jesus’ "headquarters" during his public ministry. Several disciples were from Capernaum and many miracles were performed here. KINNERET OR
Capernaum HebrewHebrew: כְּפַר נַחוּם , Kfar Nahum inhabited from 150 BC to about AD 750
Sunset on the sea of galilee (genneseret) The Synoptic gospels of Mark (1:14-20), Matthew (4:18- 22), and Luke (5:1-11) describe how Jesus recruited four of his apostles from THIS AREA:MarkMatthewLukeapostles the fishermen Simon and his brother Andrew and the brothers John and JamesSimonAndrewJohnJames

GENNESARET IN THE HEBREW MEANS : “ GARDEN OF RICHES “ GENNESARET WAS LOCATED ON THE N.W. SHORE OF THE SEA OF GALILEE. V iew from Arbel MOUNTAINS NORTH
WHEAT Mat 13:30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn
BARLEY Deu 8:7 For the LORD thy God bringeth thee into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and depths that spring out of valleys and hills; Deu 8:8 A land of wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig trees, and pomegranates; a land of oil olive, and honey ;
FIG Luke 21:29 And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees;
GRAPES Rev 14:18 And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.
The kingdom of God it constitutes the sum and substance of the gospel theme. Parables represent the same Kingdom from different standpoints--the grain of mustard seed, leaven hidden in the meal, treasure hidden in a field, the pearl of great value, the net gathered of every kind. The Jews of the early Church were translated into the Kingdom of God's dear Son, in the sense that they had certain liberties which they did not have under the Law. We are, in embryo, the Kingdom of God. The precious privileges of the Kingdom even in this time of its humiliation--righteousness, peace, joy--are such as the world cannot Appreciate. Romans 14:17
LUKE 12:32 FEAR NOT, LITTLE FLOCK ; FOR IT IS YOUR FATHERS GOOD PLEASURE TO GIVE YOU THE KINGDOM.
WORLD CONDITIONS WHY ? ISA.65:17 TO CREATE A NEW HEAVENS AND A NEW EARTH ? Isa 65:17 For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind JESUS HAS ASKED HIS BRETHREN TO BE A PART OF THIS PROCESS OF ESTABLISHING A NEW HEAVENS AND A NEW EARTH.

DH 349 Jesus Saviour, Pilot Me 1 Jesus, Saviour, pilot me Over life's tempestuous sea; Unknown waves around me roll, Hiding rocks and treach'rous shoal; Chart and compass come from Thee, Jesus, Saviour, pilot me. 2 As a mother stills her child, Thou canst hush the ocean wild. Boist'rous waves obey Thy will When Thou say'st to them be still! Wondrous Sov'reign of the sea; Jesus, Saviour, pilot me. 3 When at last I near the shore, And the fearful breakers roar, 'Twixt me and the peaceful rest, Then, while leaning on Thy breast, May I hear Thee say to me; “Fear not, I will pilot thee.” AND MAY THE LORD ADD HIS BLESSING
“GOD BE WITH YOU TILL WE MEET AGAIN” 1 God be with you till we meet again; By his counsels guide, uphold you, With His sheep securely fold you, God be with you till we meet again! 2 God be with you till we meet again; 'Neath his wings securely hide you, Daily manna still provide you; God be with you till we meet again. 3 God be with you till we meet again; When life's perils thick confound you; Put His arms unfailing round you; God be with you till we meet again. 4 God be with you till we meet again; Keep love's banner floating o'er you; Smite death's threatening wave before you; God be with you till we meet again. Chorus Till we meet, till we meet! Till we meet at Jesus' feet; Till we meet! God be with you till we meet again!
