Men Prepare Sermons; God Prepares Men

2nd Timothy 2:15

"The proper place for a ship to be is in the water, but if the water gets into the ship, the ship will sink. The proper place for the church is in the world,

BUT IF THE 'WORLD' GETS INTO THE CHURCH,

THE CHURCH WILL GO DOWN IN DISGRACE!"

"Now fear the Lord and serve Him with all faithfulness...But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve...But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD."-Joshua 24:14-15

WHEN YOU COME TO CHURCH;

What do you expect from the preaching?Church02

  • If you expect to come away with intellectual insights, you will find something to satisfy that desire.

  • If you expect the preacher to say something debatable, you will.

  • If you expect to judge the quality of the message, you will find something he said wrong or could have said differently.

  • If you expect to have a to-do-list for moral improvement, you will find opportunity for behavior modification to try harder and do better.

      But of course if…

      • you expect life transformation, you will discover the spirit exposing sin and fostering greater desire for repentance.

      • you expect to become like Jesus, you will be granted fresh eyes of faith to behold Jesus.

      • you expect to be used in the service of the Kingdom, you will find the Word empowering and enabling you to bear fruit disproportionate to your abilities.

      • you expect to meet God, you will find God will not pass by without glimpses of His glory and grace.

        The question is…

        What are you expecting whenever you come under the authority and power of God’s living and active, faith-engendering, sin-exposing, Christ-exalting, Gospel-centered Word?

        FAMILY VISIT FROM COLORADO

        Visit01Visit02

        We took the opportunity to take our family (Ronnie, Kiley, and Jennifer—our daughter and her husband and their daughter from Colorado) on a visit to the Grand Canyon.  It was Ronnie’s (and Kiley’s) first visit to the Grand Canyon.  He was impressed.

        On one of the paths we walked up on a deer feeding.  That was in itself a thrill!  The view coming back into Flagstaff was also breathtaking with the snow capped mountain in the background.

        A New Work in Valley Farms

        We feel so encouraged, that the Lord Jesus Christ has honored our many years of faithful service to Him by directing us to serve the community of Valley Farms, as His community church.  Valley Farms is a small community located between Coolidge and Florence, on Vah Ki Inn Road. As we continue to minister at Ho Ho Kam RV Community, which will continue to be our first priority.  Our Sunday church service at Valley Farms will start on April 7, at 11:30 a.m.  We covet your prayers for us and the folks in and around Valley Farms, that many may come to know the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior through this ministry.  Please come by for a visit, or give us a call for a tour of the church—lots of work  has been done, and much left to do. See pictures below.
