STAY IN THE BATTLE PDF Print E-mail

“I have said these things to you, that in Me you may have peace.  In the world you will have tribulation.  But take heart; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 ESV 

A result of the coming of the Christ, is that peace now resides within the heart of those who truly believe that Jesus is God the Son incarnate – that He is indeed the Christ.  When that truth is accepted and one’s will is given over completely to Jesus – then a peace that is beyond human comprehension floods the believer’s heart, mind, and soul.  But not only does He, God the Holy Spirit, place that peace within the believer He also puts a sword in his or her hand!

Peace and swordplay don’t seem compatible, do they?

Perhaps not, but in the Christian faith they go hand-in-hand.  The peace we receive, being a divine gift, comes with much more power than anticipated.  As possessors of this gift, our eyes are opened to the warfare that is taking place at a fevered pitch all around us.  We observe those who are struggling because they are wrestling against the unseen enemy combatants in their own strength.  Then, suddenly the sword makes sense.

We are called never to become veterans, in the sense that we disengage from the conflict and seek retirement.  We are, however, called to use our veteran skills to assist others struggling for peace!

“And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4:7 ESV 

Stay in the battle!

GIVING TO GOD PDF Print E-mail
Written by webmaster   
Sunday, October 27 2019 00:00

What do you give to God? 

It’s much different today than in the time of Jesus and centuries before.  Then, you would bring an animal you raised, crops you grew by the sweat of your brow or fruit that you would have nurtured through the seasons.  There was a real earthy connection with all that was offered! . . . a true sense of giving of yourself.

Do you feel that connection through the giving of your gifts today?  It’s much different, isn’t it?

I am well aware that each of us invest ourselves in our occupations, and through those jobs we give.  But perhaps it seems more disconnected when we simply drop a gift in the offering plate or the pastor’s pocket.

Let me just share that it doesn’t have to.  May I suggest a few ways for you to be somewhat more in touch with your gift and its destinations.

First, pray, seriously pray, in regard to the amount of your gift.  It may change from time to time!  Pray for how you can give sacrificially of any aspect of your life. 

Second, earnestly pray for the work that your gift is going to . . . your church, missions, evangelistic outreaches, etc.  Your prayers can cause the funds to go farther than we ever imagined.

Finally, pray for the souls touched and changed directly and indirectly through your personal gift.

These are just a few thoughts of how one can feel connected to the gifts given freely to God’s work.  I would love to hear your thoughts on the matter.

May you be blessed as you faithfully serve our King!

7-FOLD PRAYER PDF Print E-mail
Written by Pastor   
Sunday, November 03 2019 00:00

1)  A prayer for reconciliation
2)  A prayer for compassion
3)  A prayer for wisdom
4)  A prayer for redemption
5)  A prayer for maturity
6)  A prayer for generosity
7)  A prayer for transformation

I read this seven fold prayer recently.  It was written for the church body at large, and came with explanations for each.  I thought that perhaps some of you might have insights regarding one or more of these needs?

Take a few moments to peruse the list – where, in your estimation, is our greatest weakness?  I know this is subjective and with enough people commenting we would have all seven eventually named.

So perhaps, as you peruse, you can pray?  Pray for that one or more areas that keep coming back to as you scour this list.

Father, may we seek to excel in every aspect of Your divine will!

GROW DEEP ROOTS PDF Print E-mail
Written by Pastor   
Sunday, October 20 2019 00:00

“Let your roots grow down into Him, and let your lives be built on Him.  Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.”  Colossians  2:7 NLT

How deep our spiritual roots run goes along way to indicating one’s spiritual strength. The question is how do we manage to sink them ever deeper when all around it seems to be nothing but spiritual hard-pan? 

Ironically to penetrate deep our faith must rest on ground that is firm.   This firm ground, is our foundational understanding of who Christ is, and how we are to follow.  Many who have a sense of faith – or perhaps just a spiritual inkling – believe that their acceptance of Christ is all that’s necessary.  Acceptance should/must lead to spiritual hunger.

Those who plunge deeper gain an understanding that faith grows like a tree-getting stronger and producing more as the relationship deepens.  Favorable growing conditions occur when the heart is opened and our passion to know supersedes all other competing desires!

Determine to deepen your faith today!
