God's way or your way?

Hebrews 6:10-11 New Living Translation

“For God is not unjust. He will not forget how hard you have worked for Him and how you have shown your love to Him by caring for other believers, as you still do.   Our great  desire is that you will keep on  loving others as long as life lasts, in  order to make certain that what you hope for will come true.”

God has promised to us, His children, that He will take care of us, if we keep His commandments.

Are we willing to commit all into His hands, to rest in His Word, and to stand without wavering in the love of God; fully convinced that His promises to you will be fulfilled?

The choice is ours my friends.  Obey His Word and enjoy His protection and blessings; or do our own thing and be on our own,   

"As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."

Obey Him, and today enjoy His blessings and protection.  He cares for His children.

Love ya,  have a wonderful week!

Where are your roots?

Loyalty is a commodity in short supply in a culture dominated by complete industries dedicated to the task of changing people’s opinions. They aren’t content to simply change the public’s brand loyalties. Their messages sandwiched between snippets of programming may also be designed to create the need for their product in the mind of someone not currently using any such thing. Food, clothing, medicine, professional services, transportation, career, education, recreation; no subject is exempt from attempts to persuade a change of loyalty to their product.

Is it any wonder then that the concept of a deep commitment to one’s home church is nearly nonexistent? Rather than stay with the local church while it struggles through some problem, many with lesser loyalties choose such a moment to shop for some new church to which they can be “fiercely loyal”. Hmmm….   Wouldn’t it make more sense for the person whose childhood was spent in the classrooms and at the altars of the home church to step up to the plate and help their church work through a challenge? Whose church is it anyway? It is God’s church and the Bride of Christ. And each believer gets to be a part of what the Lord is doing in the church where He has planted them.

Sometimes simply staying put and praying is the best we can do for God at that moment.

There is an old saying that has spent time as a refrigerator magnet in many a household: “Bloom Where You Are Planted”. Some Christians have been transplanted so many times; they have never been allowed to establish a root system. Stick with it saint of God!

God bless you as you settle in for the long haul!

God's Blessing on America and His People

Psalm 122:1New Living Translation (NLT)

"I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the House of the Lord."

Today we celebrate  the birth of the greatest country in the world, AMERICA! 

Let's take this day to celebrate freedom, and honor our Active Military and Veterans who gave so much for our freedom!   Sunday as we come to the time of Worship  sing with all your might, throw back you heads, throw up your hands and Rejoice, "You’re a Child of the King" and you live in America! 

It's OK to be emotional about God's favor bestowed upon us!  It's worth shouting about!!!

Thank GOD, we're FREE because of the brave; GOD BLESS AMERICA!  

   Love ya,  Pastor Phil
