1.Pray
2.Survey of needs
3.Have a vision
4.Go to work

These are the 4 steps we can learn from the story of Nehemiah as he lead the people in rebuilding the wall of Jerusalem. This was a daunting task but Nehemiah was faithful to God and determined to see this wall rebuilt. You can read Nehemiah’s story in the book named for him in the Old Testament.

It sounds simple, but with this guideline Nehemiah and his workers accomplished rebuilding the wall around the city of Jerusalem. It was hard work, there were few workers, and there was opposition; but they didn’t give up. Staying faithful and focused they got the job done.

We as modern-day Christians have work to accomplish too. We, like Nehemiah, should always pray first for God’s guidance and help and be faithful to the task that He has given us. We should consider all the needs that should be met. This will give us a vision for the work to be done. Then we should get to work doing what God has lead us to do. With faith and determination we too can accomplish great tasks for God.

The lesson today in the Keystone Sunday School Class was from chapter 3 of the book of Daniel and was about Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego being thrown into the fiery furnace. These three Hebrews had faith that their God would be with them and deliver them from this fate; and HE DID! They put their trust in God and believed He would not let them down. When King Nebuchadnezzar’s fury burned against them, they stood firm on their faith in the one true God.

Later during the worship service, Rev. Phil Nickles shared Joshua 1:9 with the congregation. In this verse God tells us to be “strong and courageous” and not to be afraid or discouraged. Why? Because He is with us wherever we go!

When our faith is put to the test and we face our fiery furnace, we too can stand firm on our faith in God. He will be with us and He will deliver us!

Now that is great news!

Welcome to In His Praise!
Happy New Year!! The “Good News” from East Point C.P. Church today can help you do just that — have a happy and blessed 2017.

In Rev. Nickles’ sermon today he talked about having “positive faith” in this coming year. Positive faith is faith that looks for things to happen, faith that doesn’t doubt that God can do anything! Bro. Nickels outlined four ways to have positive faith in our lives. They are:
1) Study the Bible — God’s word
2) Take action — do whatever God is moving you to do
3)Believe that God is God — He is awesome, all-mighty and all-powerful
4) Seek God diligently.

Our thoughts, words, actions and attitudes result in positive or negative faith, so in 2017 let’s show our positive faith and see what God can accomplish through us and for us.

Let’s consider the story of Joseph. A young man that God had blessed, but because of his brothers’ jealousy he was sold into slavery. Sounds like a bad situation for Joseph, but he remained faithful to God and God blessed him. In the Genesis chapter 39, we pick up on the story of Joseph. He had found favor with his master Potiphar (an Egyptian official) and was placed in charge of all of Potiphar’s business, including his household. This sounds good for Joseph, but Potiphar’s wife liked the way Joseph looked so she tried to seduce him. Joseph remained faithful to God and did the right thing and refused her advances. This made Potiphar’s wife angry, so she lied to Potiphar, accused Joseph wrongly and caused him to be sent to prison, another bad situation for Joseph. But Joseph remained faithful to God and God continued to bless Joseph. Even while in prison Joseph found favor with the jailer and later was released. Joseph even became a great leader for Egypt while never giving up his faith and dedication to God. Later his relationship with his brothers was restored and he was reunited with his family. So what does all this have to do with us? We too like Joseph can end up in bad situations, but if we remain faithful to God and do what is right God will bless us and see us through those hard times. Jesus said, “I will never forsake you.” That sounds like Good News!
