Purpose

Sunday, July 31st, 2016

My life is all about JESUS and my heart belongs to HIM.
Listen Church, “Souls hang in the balance.”

If I’m gonna raise my voice, and i will, it will be in praise of all HE has done for me.
God loves people, ALL people:

He loved me enough, He loved you enough, that He sent His Son JESUS, that we could be saved and sanctified, set apart for His use. I don’t have time to waste, and neither do you. We must be about The Father’s business…

We may be ‘in’ this world, but we are not to be ‘of’ this world.

Onward, Upward, and Higher

No More Struggle

Tuesday, July 26th, 2016

Father God, in The Name of Jesus, I declare,
NO MORE STRUGGLE!
We are led by the PEACE of God.
We are listening for His Voice.
We are leaning in for His Wisdom.
We are “doers” of The Word….
We Hear and Obey!

Simply put, we must trust in God.
Trusting:
GOD WILL PROVIDE
He supplies our every need.
HE IS OUR HEALER
He sent His Word to heal us.
HE IS OUR SAVIOUR
He sent His Son that we might be saved.
HE IS OUR DELIVERER
He hears our cries, and delivers us from the pit of destruction.

What a MIGHTY GOD we serve.

Don’t limit God, He has called us to move “Onward, Upward, and Higher”

Church family, we must daily:
Pray for one another. Walk in love. Speak words of encouragement. Lift your brothers and sisters up.

Reflections of PEACE

Monday, July 25th, 2016

Spending some quiet time with the Lord this morning, and reflecting on some notes.

I marvel at the handiwork of my Heavenly Father. As I sit here pondering over His Goodness to me, His Peace floods over my soul.
Just a couple of quick thoughts I want to share:
Perfect Peace belongs to us if we will keep our mind stayed on Him.
Isaiah 26:3 AMP….You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You.
Refuse to be shaken.
Don’t be moved by what you see or hear. Don’t let ‘feelings’ lead you. Stay with God’s Word.
Don’t allow yourself to get caught up in this world’s system…this world’s way of thinking.
Determine…NO MORE COMPROMISE

How different things would be if we would just stop compromising for the sake of:
•Family
•Friendships
•Finances
•Job Security

Declare, GOD IS…my Source, my Provider, my Deliverer, my Joy, and my Peace.

Folks, I’d rather have JESUS!

Helping Myself To Help Others

Thursday, July 21st, 2016

Too many ANGRY people in the church.
Many don’t even know they are angry.

Are folk offending you, or are you just easily offended? Guard against this.
Learn to control ‘yourself’….
You can be free,
Care about yourself…your life.
There’s no time to waste…
Don’t let the devil bait you into negative attitudes and actions:

Bitterness •Resentment
Hatred •Strife •Anger
Envy •Strife
Unforgiveness •Revenge

Surrender it all to Jesus. Let HIM fix it for you. HE knows just what to do. Step back and allow HIM to Fix it…for you.

Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
1 Peter 5:6-7 KJV

Going Back to Move Forward

Tuesday, July 19th, 2016

Slow Down….. Thinking to myself. (or should I say speaking to myself)

So much going on today. So many accusations being tossed about. I want to take time and focus on the midst important issue at hand. So I’m gonna take a small window of time on this:

Have we forgotten about Jesus? He gave His Life for all mankind. He has commissioned ‘us’ to go forth and minister in the world in which we live. To present The Gospel, the Good News to folk.

I heard someone say once… “Could you, or would you, be convicted for living holy?”  In some parts of the world this is already happening. And yet we, the church, for the most part seem to be mirroring the world. We seem to have forgotten that we were called to share the gospel. (Some actually think that ‘they’ are the gospel) But our message must focus on JESUS! We need to go back to our instruction manual…The Bible!

I weep for the church…I weep for this world…I weep for souls. Folks,I’m going back…

  • Back to The Word…
  • Back to The Cross…
  • Back to the Altar…
  • Back to my First Love.

There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
Proverbs 14:12 KJV
Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers. Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.
2 Timothy 2:14-16 KJV

Answering The Call,
