In His Praise!
Good News from East Point C.P. Church

DO YOU KNOW THE LORD? This is a simple inquiry, but the answer means everything. It is the most important answer that you can ever give. It effects the rest of your life here on earth and more importantly, it effects your eternal life.
I do not know of anybody that would deliberately choose to go to hell. But by ignoring this invitation you are choosing death over life, hell over heaven . It just that simple!
And it is just that simple to change things too! Acts 3:19 says to repent and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped away (paraphrased). Romans 10:9 says “if you confess with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead you will be saved.” That’s it!! A simple choice!
Choose life eternal today. Choose forgiveness over condemnation. Choose blessings from a loving Heavenly Father. You will never be sorry that you chose to know the Lord.
Some other scriptures you can read about God’s saving grace are Mark 16:16, Luke 19:10, John 3:16, Acts 4:12, and Ephesians 2:8-9.

The good news from East Point C.P. Church today is a verse from Psalm 118:14. These Bible words say, “The Lord is my strength and song, and is become my salvation.”
These words give us encouragement, hope and assurance. No matter how weak we feel we are, as Christians we know we can always depend on strength from the Lord. He stands ready and willing to help us when we call out to Him.
When we’re sad or afraid, He will put a song in our hearts and can cause the darkest circumstances to become brighter. Remember Paul and Silas in prison? They sang praises and an earthquake freed them! (Acts 16:25-31)
And what gives us cause to sing? The salvation that the Lord alone can bring to our lives. With God’s help we can overcome any situation or circumstance. With His salvation we can be forgiven of our sins and be made clean and whole again.
Accept this salvation today and let God be your strength to face life. Let Him put a joyful song in your heart and let Him give you eternal life with Him.

“This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” This well known and often quoted verse is found in Psalm 118:24. Many times these words are spoken to celebrate a new day or a special occasion, but in the book of Psalms it was spoken to acknowledge and celebrate that God would provide a way of salvation through Jesus Christ.
The unknown writer of Psalm 118 was actually speaking of future events and gives God the glory for His plan of salvation for us (Ps. 118:18-24).
Yes, we celebrate each new day as a gift from God, but we can also repeat this verse in praise of a God that loved us so much that he sent Jesus to die for our sins. Jesus, the Savior who was resurrected to life and lives forever more to provide a path to salvation and eternal life for each of us.
Now that is good news! Let us rejoice and be glad in it!
