In His Praise — December 31, 2017

As we get ready to begin a new year, let us remember that God is still with us. All the promises in His word are still there ready to be claimed in Jesus name. All the prayers that have been prayed have been heard and are still being answered by our Lord. All the love and forgiveness that Jesus has for us is still there waiting for us to accept it.

Sometimes the devil whispers to us and reminds us of past failures or mistakes. But don’t let him have control over you. Isaiah 43:18 tells us to forget the former things and not dwell on the past. So let go of those bad memories! Look to the future and know that God has great plans for you. (Jeremiah 29:11)

Let 2018 be the year you grow closer to the Lord. If you do not know Jesus as your Lord and Savior, accept His salvation. If you have drifted away, return to the Lord and strive to walk closer with Him.

Don’t let the past hold you back any longer, decide today to follow Jesus! He loves you more than you know!

As we approach Thanksgiving Day we can think of many things for which we are grateful. God blesses us bountifully everyday, and everyday we should show our gratitude to Him for these blessings.

God’s love and Jesus’ salvation are the most important gifts that we can receive. But do we really understand how much God loves us? It is difficult to fathom such great love. Here are a few Bible verses that tell us just how special God thinks we are:
Psalm 139:16 — “All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”
I John 3:1 — “How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!
Jeremiah 29:11 — “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.”
Zephaniah 3:17 — “The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save, He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.”

Being God’s child is a true blessing, and it is good news to share with others that they too might become a part of the family!

Thanks be to God!

In His Praise –October 1, 2017

Today Rev. Phil Nickles shared a wonderful message from God with the congregation! This good news is that as a children of God we are entitled to all the blessings that God has for us. It is inconceivable to think of all the ways that we are blessed. It is truly an humbling thought, and should spur us to want to let God’s love shine through us more and more.

In fact in Luke 12:48(b) it says to whom much is given, much will be required. So what does this mean? As Rev. Nickles explained, even though we are entitled to God’s goodness and blessings, we are not entitled to keep them to ourselves. We are expected, and commanded, to bless others. When we do kind deeds, help someone, share the gospel or even encourage another we are showing God’s light in a dark world. God’s light (love) is the only way to break the darkness that has such a hold on so many.

Luke 6:38 reminds us that if we give, we will receive — “a good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap”. Isn’t it great news to know that as we share the love of God we will be blessing others, and God in return will bless us even more!
