II Corinthians 4 – Persecution unto Glorification

Thursday, February 24th, 2011


February 24, 2011

There are two opposing forces fighting for us, the one true God and the god of this world. Both promise things and both bring them to pass but only our one true God brings good, perfect, loving things. He brings peace and contentment. He brings joy and riches. He sent his one true son the Christ Jesus that we may have truth and life and riches. We are earthen vessels, corruptable and fleeting, that we may not say our power is from us but rather that it is from God eternal; the excellency of our power is of God.
So not matter what we face let us turn our thought and focus to God and let our mouths be full of His grace and power that we may spread His glory rather than the that of lesser idols.

As you read throughout the Bible, you see that God’s great men are also men of prayer. From Moses to Christ, prayer is large part of their walk with God. As Christians today, prayer plays an integral part of living and with all the benefits promised to us in God’s Word in prayer, we too should be people of prayer.

When I Say I am a Christian

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

A beautiful poem we thought was worth sharing in fellowship so here it is for you!

When I Say I Am A Christian

When I say …”I am a Christian,”
I’m not shouting “I am saved”
I’m whispering “I was lost!
That is why I chose this way.”

When I say…”I am a Christian,”
I don’t speak of this with pride.
I’m confessing that I stumble and need sonmeone to be my guide.

When I say…”I am a Christian,”
I’m not trying to be strong.
I’m professing that I’m weak and pray for strength to carry on.

When I say…”I am a Christian,”
I’m not braggin of success.
I’m admitting I have failed and cannot ever pay the debt.

When I say…”I am a Christian,”
I’m not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are too visible but God bleieves I’m worth it.

When I say…”I am a Christian,”
I still feel the sting of pain.
I have my share of heartaches which is why I seek His name.

when I say…”I am a Christian,”
I do not wish to judge.
I have no authority I only know I am loved.
