A Word For The Week

Ephesians 5:16

 

We have been given ways to utilize every opportunity that is given to us.  We are sitting under a Pastor who wants only the best for the people who are under his covering.  He prays without ceasing on our behalf, that we will participate in our Sunday morning Worship, Small Group Bible Study, 11am or 7pm Wednesday Bible Study, Tailored to Win at 9am on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and Prayer Service on Wednesdays and Saturdays.  He wants us not merely to be listeners and readers of the Word and so deceive ourselves, but be doers and apply the Word into our lives (James 1:22).

 

In such a time as this that we are experiencing, we are to delight in doing everything the Lord wants (Psalms 1:2).  We know His grace is sufficient and we know that in all things God works for the good of those who are the called according to His will. We must trust God’s timing. Isaiah 65:24 states before they open their mouth He has already started working it out.  Realize we need each other.  Genesis 2:18 states it was not good for man to be alone.  We know all things work together for the good of those who love the Lord and are called for His purpose Romans 8:28.  This day forward let's come together in oneness, unity and strive to be a part of the new beginnings God has put in place for our place of worship, utilizing the gift or gifts we have been given by God to use in the up building of His kingdom.  Let's stay connected, so we can consider ways to stimulate one another to love and good deeds (Hebrews 10:24).

Word of The Week - Youth Edition


While I have been out during COVID and not being able to go places and see friends and family it has not always been easy.   One thing I have always been told and I know is true is that everything happens for a reason, and when we look back in the word you can see that God has all of it under control.  We can look at this time as a sabbatical.  We are taking off from doing our normal things.  It also can give us more time to be with God, study and think about God.  It reminds me of the times in the bible in Israel when the Jews had to practice shmita.  This is when they take a year long break every 7 years of doing work.  We just need to always be reminded even during these uncertain times that God has not given up on us, and God will not give up on us.  I am glad to know that God is always with us.  If we really know and remember this, it will help us during these times.   The word says in Matthew 28:20  “I am with you always to the end of age".
