Do the things of this world bring you down? The daily news can be very depressing and down right scary sometimes. Shootings, debates about gun control, political conflicts, suicides, homocides, abuse of all kinds, …these are just a few of the things we deal with on a daily basis. Satan is alive and well on this earth.
But God has given us hope! Jesus said in John 16:33b, “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” Through faith in Jesus we can overcome all the trials of this life. Through the power of Jesus name we can rebuke evil and cause Satan to flee! Through trust in Jesus we can be strengthened to deal with the trials that come our way and through belief in Jesus salvation can be ours. He gives us hope of a future full of joy and peace and through prayer He gives us an avenue to bring our burdens and requests before the Father who listens and acts in love toward us.
Yes, Jesus has overcome this world and He will help us be overcomers too! Now that is great news!
Today was Denomination Day in the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. This is a day set aside to celebrate and to remember the beginnings of our denomination.
Born out of the great revival of the 1800’s, Cumberland Presbyterians have a very sound foundational doctrine. It speaks of God’s love for mankind and offers hope for all. In a “nutshell” Cumberland Presbyterians believe that Christ died for all people and we practice something called a “whosoever will” doctrine. That means that anybody may receive the salvation of Christ by only believing, repenting of their sins, and accepting Him into their heart.
To me and many other Cumberland Presbyterians this is very good news for a lost world and we are happy to share it with others.
Welcome to In His Praise!
The “good news” from East Point C.P. Church comes from the book of Romans, chapter 15, verse 13. It says, “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” What a promise!! God can and will fill our lives with joy and peace and make our hope overflow. All we have to do is trust Him.
