In Philippians 3:14 Paul the Apostle said, "I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus." In times of personal trouble and inward weakness the only choice we can make if we are going to move forward is not to quit and give up. When the exit door to my past is closer than the reward into my future I must press towards the goal, the prize of His upward call. The devil can't steal our prize but he can delay us in our journey and make it longer to get there than we thought. The Bible says, "we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose." Romans 8:28 I declare over your life that gates and doors of opportunity will open before you. Not just at the Fellowship Church but in every church, over every believer that calls Jesus Savior and Lord. Confidence in you is high so stir yourself by the power of His Holy Spirit unto good works and believe that we will see the reward of the righteous in the land of the living.
Last Sunday was a great service with several people accepting Jesus. As my heart rejoices within me I want to thank you all for making Family Sunday such a great success.
This Sunday at 9:30am Charlene Petrie begins a 10 week New Life Class at the church. The classes are 45 minutes long and will reveal to you the principles of what it means to be a believer. At 10:30 our church service begins and I will be sharing with you, "Thinking And Feeling." I believe the greatest battles that we will face in life will not be with the adverse circumstances that surround us but rather the inward wrong feelings that consume us.
Youth retreat in New Glasgow is March 16th, 17th, and 18th. Our team of young people will be leaving here on Friday and return home Sunday afternoon. It will be a great time over March break for our youth to renew their strength.
