Hi everyone, last week's yard sale raised over 900.00 dollars for the Munro School. I want to thank everyone for their support in this effort. This money will go to helping children in our community receive a faith based education. The results of your labor will be seen in time and eternity.
When we talk about our salvation it comes through an act of our will to accept Jesus as Savior and Lord and repent or turn away from our sin. What happens when we make a mistake or worse fall away from our faith? These verses that are found in 1 John were written to believers and they helped me to understand what we need to do when we make mistakes or fall away. 1 John 1:9-10 "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us." As believers when we sin we don't need to get resaved but we do need to confess to God the problem and be willing to repent or turn away from the problem. It's an ongoing process that helps us continue on in the faith and this process never changes. When you sin don't look down, don't make an excuse, don't poll the audience but lift up your eyes to Jesus. Psalms 121:1-2 "I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from? My help comes from theLord, the Maker of heaven and earth." Keep your head up for His promises are sure and your best days are coming to your house.
This Sunday in the morning I be sharing on, 'His Kingdom Purpose.' His Kingdom must come to you so His purposes can be revealed in you and then go forth from you to the world around you. In the evening we'll be going outdoors to our church property and I'll be sharing on, 'Out of Your Wilderness.' How do we escape the pitfalls and potholes, snares and traps of the enemy? Invite a friend and enjoy the service together.
We are looking to upgrade our video ministry at a cost of 20 thousand dollars. Thank you to those people who have already promised or have made a donation. If you would like to sow a seed and contribute to this ministry that reaches the world it would be greatly appreciated.
Continue to pray for all those in need, looking forward to seeing you soon, lots of love, Pastor Kevin and Alice
