Hello Pastors, leaders and sanctified men and women of God! The summer is a great time to share Christ as you walk at the beach or park. The increase in drug and alcohol abuse, anxiety, depression, and family conflicts is partially a result of the last year. It has made people more aware of their need for hope and help. As the outdoors is opened up, use the opportunity to show the love of Jesus! Also, let's remember to pray for Haiti as the country is…

"Highway to Heaven - It is Time to Learn to Fly"





One of the most tragic mistakes of Christianity has been to focus on the prophecies of judgment about the end of the age instead of fulfilling the commandment to preach the Gospel of the Kingdom. Gospel means "good news," and it is the greatest news the world has ever or will ever hear. When that greatest hope of all is articulated, no message on earth will have ever had a greater impact. It is time to take up this…

Forgiveness Heals

It’s easier to be bitter

Than to feel the pain of grief

It’s easier to be angry

Than look for true relief

It’s easier to blame someone

For all the sufferings

It’s easier to sit alone

When imperfect grace stings

But if my Lord I’d follow

I’ll not seek ease,…

When God Heals

When God Heals



When God comes to heal us

It’s final and complete

There is nothing that is lacking

When He meets us in our need



Whether it be in our body

Or the hurt within our soul

He will touch the point of need

And will truly make us whole



His healing is there for you

Just receive it from the Lord

Believe upon the living word

That you can be…

Meeting You Where You Are?

 

Daily Bible Verse & Prayer

Today's Verse - Colossians 3:4

When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

Colossians 3:4

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

My world is beautiful today — great weather, wonderful church, loving spouse, great kids, and blessed with all I truly need. But this will certainly change. Life is bound up with mortality. Love is connected to imperfect people. Separation by geographical distance, disagreement, and death are bound to happen at different points in our lives. However, my incredible assurance in Christ is that my true and lasting "life is now hidden with Christ in God." While things may be good in my life now, they're always vulnerable to being touched by mortality — changed by our broken world, flawed people, and personal missteps. When Christ comes, however, my life with God will be made gloriously perfect and unstained by evil, death, or decay. Now that's good news — and not just for me, but also for you as you center your life in Jesus!

My Prayer...

Holy and Righteous God, we thank you for your overwhelming and generous grace that saved us from sin. Thank you for Jesus, whose resurrection from the dead ensures our ultimate transformation into life forever with you and the resurrection reunion we will have with all who belong to you. Until that day when we get to praise you face to face, please receive our thanks and praise in Jesus' name. Amen.

Today's Verse - 1 Corinthians 3:3

You are still worldly. For since there is jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not worldly? Are you not acting like mere humans?

1 Corinthians 3:3

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

The Corinthians boasted in their wisdom, giftedness, and tolerance. Yet this wisdom, gifted, and tolerance were worldly and not holy. No matter how gifted a church, how full of earthly wisdom its leaders may have, or how tolerant they are to other opinions, if the people of that church are caught up in petty arguments, cliquishness, and ugly quarrels, they are immature and worldly. Rather than being a place where Christ is known and shown, their meetings are no more than just a gathering of "mere humans." We are recreated in Christ to be more!

For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works,  which God prepared in advance for us to do (Ephesians 2:10).
Let's live up to what God has made us to be and not be worldly and "mere humans."

My Prayer...

Holy and Righteous Father, please humble me gently and call me to repentance when I am jealous, quarrelsome, cliquish, or petty. I know you see me as your beloved child, so I ask for the help of the Holy Spirit for me to be who you have made me to be. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.

Today's Verse - Matthew 3:1-2

In those days John the Baptist came ... saying, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near."

Matthew 3:1-2

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

John's words sound strange in a world afraid to tell the truth about sin, wickedness, and evil. Yet all lost people — people who do not know Jesus and those who claim to follow him but don't obey him — we all desperately need to repent. That means changing our hearts and lives, seeking after God, and turning our behaviors around to live for Jesus as LORD. We choose to follow and obey him, not our wants. Yes, salvation is given to us by God's incredible grace. On the other hand, grace that leaves us unchanged is not true grace. Grace not only forgives us through Jesus' sacrificial death on the Cross and our faith in him but also liberates us from the empty and destructive life without God, his guidance, and our purpose.

My Prayer...

Forgive me, dear Heavenly Father, for my sin. I turn my heart back to you and commit to live my life according to your will and for your glory, not my own and certainly not the ways of this fallen, broken, and lost world. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
