Admist all of the chaos in our world today, God is still changing lives! This Sunday, we will be hearing some testimonies from people whose lives have been impacted by the Word of God through the power of the Holy Spirit. 2 Corinthians 4:7-9 reminds us:
7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
8 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in depair;
9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;
When we, by faith, come to the realization fully what Jesus did for us on the cross--leaving heaven to become the God-man to suffer persecution and die a horrible death on the cross--to provide a way of forgiveness of sins, it is a very humbling realization. Trials and challenges provide opportunities to build our faith and trust in God. Genuine faith is faith that believes in and obeys God, acting in response to the Word of God and according to the Word of God. We will suffer in this life, but faith in God gives us the assurance that He will keep His promises to never leave or forsake us, to hold us in the palm of His hand, and to guide us through this life and into eternity with Him.
Come, or listen online, and be encouraged! Everyone is welcome!
This Sunday, January 16, Pastor Brian will present the third part in the sermon series "Checking My Spiritual Pulse". This week the sermon will focus on the last two types of devotion the early church demonstrated - The Devotion to the Breaking of Bread and The Devotion to Prayers -- as discussed in Acts 2:41-47. This sermon series encourages us to examine our level of devotion to our Great God -- without Him in our lives, we are nothing. "Everything we are, everything we have, and everything we enjoy, is derived from Him." Come to find out how you can cultivate your commitment in your walk with God by opening up to the leading of God's Spirit in your life! Everyone is welcome!!!
