What a great Thanksgiving service and dinner we had last Monday for our students from the CBU. They all had a wonderful time and to see the fellowship between our helpers and them was a blessing. Doctor DJ did an excitant job is speaking to all of us. He told his personal story of how he grew up in a Christian home and how he had a determination to overcome any problems. He shared how the Lord provided for him and how today he continues to pray, read the word, and believe for greater things. Thanks be to God and thanks be to all those who helped make this day a success.
The Bible says in John 4:24 "God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth." ThenJohn 8:32 "And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” The more truth I have about God the greater my worship becomes towards God. The outward expression of worship is a reflection of an inward truth that is burning in my heart. Jesus healed 10 lepers but only 1 returned to worship because only one caught the truth about how he was healed. Every time you catch a truth about Jesus it should bring you into deeper levels of worship. The more areas of truth you receive the more you love God, yourself, and others. The truth you follow brings you into the levels of freedom that you enjoy.
This Sunday morning I'll be sharing on, 'Hold Fast.' There are some days when we are not moving forward and we refuse to go back so we hold on. Having done all that we can, we take a stand. There is something to be said for those people who just keep showing up. Sunday evening, 'Now It Shall Come.' There are some present promises that are heading to your house. You shall be blessed in the right here and now.
Continue to pray for all those in need. Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday, lots of love, Pastor Kevin and Alice
