Friday, March 31st, 2017

March is the month that was in like a lamb and truly out like a lion.  Well, we trust that April showers will bring May flowers.  Our natural sayings can give up hope in the natural but as Christians we also need spiritual truth to give us a hope for our future.  Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope."  Our Lord thinks a certain way and we need to have His mindset to walk in His freedom and miracle power.  He tells us to love but the test of true love is to love the unlovable.  He tells us to forgive and that means we must pardon the unpardonable.  He tells us to use our faith and that means to believe the unbelievable.  He tells us to have hope and that means to keep hopeful when things seem to be hopeless.  Today my confidence in you is high as you walk in victory towards your next blessing.
This is Family Sunday and that means we start at 10:15 with food and fellowship followed by the morning service.  We are expecting many visitors and we use name tags on Family Sunday to help people get to know each other.  There will be a Baby Dedication and we also share in Communion.  I will be sharing the word, 'Fooled Again.'  Have you ever been fooled and it wasn't April 1st?  Have you ever made a promise that you didn't keep?  Did it make you feel like a fool?  If you want to soar with the eagles you shouldn't hang out with only chickens.  Come this Sunday, bring a friend and expect a miracle.

Ephesians 5:25-27 "Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish."  In the natural we keep our outer man clean by washing our body with soap and water.  Paul is saying in Ephesians that we can keep our inner man clean by washing with the Word of God.  In the natural the depth of the water that we wash in is helpful to be clean.  If you tried to wash in one inch of water in the bath tub it would be real shallow and it would be hard to clean all of you.  Thus the Holy Spirit leads us into deep water for deep calls unto deep, not to harm us nor to drown us but to wash us on the inside so we are without spot or wrinkle or any such thing.  When we pray to go deeper we give the Holy Spirit permission to lead us into deeper truth and we are rewarded with greater freedom and greater victory.  May His Word wash you today and may you be refreshed spirit, soul, and body.

This Sunday I'll be sharing, "Spirit and In Truth."  We live in a day where Holy Spirit and Divine Truth are working together.  We can know great truth while we walk in great power.  It's a wonderful day to be a Christian.

Next Sunday is Family Sunday and we are expecting great things.

Psalm 139:14 "I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well."  Every day we make choices to either do good or evil with the things that God gave us when He created us.  I pray that we will look for good in others, listen to hear their need, speak to encourage our friends, reach with our hands to help those in need, and walk in the abundance and fullness of Christ.  Jesus said that it's easy to love those that love you but His love is much greater than that.  His love reaches to you, to reside in you, and then to go through you, that it might go beyond you, and touch the world around you.  I pray for you today to have divine appointments.  Who you meet will not be by accident but for a God reason. "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven."  Matthew 5:16  My confidence is high that today you will have a blessed day in the Lord.

Tomorrow (Saturday) evening @7 we are having our first ever evening of worship.  It's at our church location and our worship team have been blessed to write some new worship songs.  Songs that come from the Lord at like prophecies and we want to support our worship team as we come together to worship our King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

Sunday morning I will be sharing on, 'Lost Things.'  What do you do between losing what you lost and finding what you lost?  It can be a hard time.

The Family Skate was last night and it was a wonderful time.  We meet many wonderful Christians from other churches and we were richly blessed by being a blessing to the family of God.

Most of us think, 'wouldn't it be great if we could change the world.'  To share a gospel that would feed all those who are hungry, end wars, free the addict, and stop all abuse.  I know that God created everything good in the beginning and it all ends well in Heaven but the problem is, He left mankind in change in between.  We somehow think it's not our fault that there is a mess so it's not our responsibility to clean it up.  Adam said it's the woman's fault and the woman said it's the serpent's fault and God said that they were both at fault.  If only they had taken responsibility over their own actions.  That then should be our goal, to take responsibility over our actions.  To live in the freedom of today, to worship the living God today, to wear a smile today, to be kind to others today, to rejoice in the Lord for our great Salvation.  Hebrews 12:12-13 "Therefore lift your drooping hands and strengthen your weak knees, and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be put out of joint but rather be healed."  To be healed personally and to be no longer lame.  The key is not to worry about what everyone else is not doing but for us to walk and enjoy the presence of the Lord.   I have great confidence that you will be blessed today.

This Sunday is Family Sunday and the Holy Spirit has been abundantly blessing our times together.  We start at 10:15 with food and fellowship followed by the morning service.  I will be sharing, 'Such a Time As This.'  This is our turn to see the wonders of God change the hearts of the people.

Coming up on March Break we are planning a Church Family Skate.

We had a government holiday last Monday because they felt that we needed it.  I decided to make another holiday, today, I'm calling it, "Happy You Day!"  You need to look in a mirror and to that person that is looking back at you declare, "I celebrate you."  Now say it again, OK this time like you mean it.  God created you one of a kind and because He is Master I declare that you are a Masterpiece.  The world tries to devalue our worth but Jeremiah 29:11 says "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope."  A part of your future is the rest of this day and God has good thoughts toward you and He has made great plans for your success.  Success starts by you knowing that you are the head and not the tail, above only and not beneath.  You need not wait to become something greater than you already are for God announces to this world that you are the apple of His eye.  This is your day, that's right, Happy You Day!!! So put on a smile and go forth in Jesus name.

This Sunday I will be sharing, 'Normal Thinking.'  Does God have in His mind what we should have on our mind?  What is the normal way for a believer to be thinking?

Next Sunday is Family Sunday so try your best to invite someone to church with you.  It could make all the difference in their world.  We are in a new season where people are waiting to be invited.

Jesus said to His Disciples, 'Follow Me and I will make you....'  It sounds simple enough, He leads and we follow.  If I wanted to go to your house but I didn't know the way it could take me a long time to fine your house.  If you drove over to my house and said, 'follow me and I will lead you back.'  My need to know the way is no longer my concern but I only need to follow you.  Trouble comes when I start to think that you no longer know the right way to your house.  I start to question the route you pick even when I don't know the way myself.  I start to slow down and you start to slow down because you know I only need to follow you.  Soon we are both stopped and you ask, 'is there a problem? '  Such is our walk with the Lord.  We slow down when He leads us on roads that we don't like to travel.  I encourage you today to look up for the road ahead looks bright and where He leads me I will follow.  Keep the faith for we know that Jesus only lead us in paths of righteousness for His name sake and we will arrive at His house and be glad
Sunday morning I will be sharing, "The Lesson In The Storm."  Why does the Lord lead us or bring us into stormy places?  What it is that we learn in a storm that we don't learn in the calm?  Bring a friend with you this Sunday as we enjoy the presence of the Lord together.
Many of you are aware that Brian Snow has passed from the earth realm to glory.  The visitation is this evening from 6 to 9 at Chant's Funeral Home in Sydney and the funeral is Saturday, tomorrow afternoon at 2pm. 
Also Corinne Samson has passed on to glory but there will be no visitation .  Her funeral is on Monday 2pm from Chant's Funeral Home in Sydney.
In talking with both families they know where their loved one has gone.  They grieve over the loss yet they rejoice in the great assurance of Heaven.

The construction of every relationship needs to be made strong enough to carry the conversation that goes on within that relationship.  Light talk is for light friends and heavy talk is for best friends.  Some people say things that are to weighty for the relationship to support. If you are going to say strong words then you must make sure that your relationship is strong enough to stand it or your words will destroy your house.  The best way to prepare to be stronger tomorrow is to act right today.  Living in today can be a hard thing to do.  It seems the things in yesterday hinder us from fully embracing today and the things in our future can cause us to worry about what might happen tomorrow.  The fruit of the Spirit is like all fruit, it’s meant to be eaten fresh.  You should share and enjoy lots of love, joy, and peace today in order to build strong relationships for your future.  This is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.  Psalm 118:24
This Sunday I'll be sharing on, 'It All Takes Time.'  There is a time for everything under the sun and if you put in enough time, you'll get to experience many things.
