COMMENT FROM AN INTERNET CONTRIBUTOR: "HEY PASTOR BILL, YOU SOUND LIKE YOU HAVE AN AGENDA WHEN YOU PREACH!"  

YOU BET I DO!  (BUT ONLY ONE!) To teach the Truth! To teach that all roads do not lead to Heaven. Only the narrow road, that leads to repentance! Through Obedience to following Jesus Christ as Lord. All other roads lead to hell and destruction (John 8:32).
****************************************************************

WHY REACH OUT AND MINISTER TO MEN?

  • When a child is reached for Christ, 3.5% of the family will follow.
  • When a mother is reached for Christ, 17% of her family will follow.
  • When a father is reached for Christ, 93% of his family will follow.  (Per the Heritage Foundation)
  • THE LORD S CALLING FAITHFUL MEN TO LEAD THEIR FAMILIES!

*******************************************************
THE LORD IS CALLING THE FAITHFUL

THROUGH ADAM ALL HAVE SINNED


****************************************************
IT'S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS!

PRAYER REQUESTS AND PRAISE REPORTS

PRAY: For the Season--That we would all remember that the True Reason for the Season is Jesus Christ.

PRAY: For Todd's Dad.

PRAY: For Ric and Frankie as they battle this cold virus.

PRAY: The Church would not give in to the pressure from the world for Spiritual Correctness, (that is, not confronting the make-believer who claims to be believers), yet they continue in their disobedience, as if the Lord has given them a License to Sin! (1 John 2:19). Pray that the Church would be Strong,  yet compassionate in their confrontation.

Pray for:  OUR PRESIDENT and VICE PRESIDENT ELECT AS THEY APPOINT THEIR CABINET, THEY NEED OUR PRAYERS!!  

Pray: That many will sign up as we plan our study of "The Truth Project".

Pray for:  Our police officers who are under attack.

Pray that: All who are attending the Community Christian Church, as well as all who have ever attended- The Lord Jesus knows who you are, and He knows your needs. We pray that He will meet your every need. If your need is Salvation, and you have not yet accepted the Lord's invitation to join His family of believers by being born again, I pray that today will be the day you make that decision..

Please continue praying for Hope.  This 12 year old is making progress but she has a long road ahead of her.  

Pray that: all who know Jesus as Lord and Savior would start live as if they do, and  will be willing to pay the one debt we owe for our Salvation; that is the debt of LOVE (Romans 13:8)! 

Pray for:  Michele who is having trouble with her Cushings Disease caused from the steroids.  So please pray for her to get through trying to get off the steroids.

Pray: That all men who are called into the pastorate would know the need to study to gain advanced Training for a deeper and broader  understanding of the HolBible (2 Timothy 2:15)

Pray for: Pastor Bill as he teaches God's Word (1 Timothy 2:2). Also that the congregation would continue to love and encourage one another ( John 13:34).

THE PLAN OF SALVATION (NKJV)

 Admit You Are a Sinner in Need of Saving
•James 2:10 “For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles on one (point), he has become guilty of all.”

•Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”

•Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Accept God’s Love through the/Sacrifice in His Son Jesus
•Romans 5:8 “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

Turn to God in Repentance
•Acts 20:21 “I have declared to both Jews and Greeks that they must turn to God in repentance and have faith in our Lord Jesus.”

Trust the Fullness Jesus Christ!
•Romans 10:9 “…if you confess with your mouth Jesus as  Lord,  and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved;

•Romans 10:13 “For whoever calls on the Name of the Lord shall be saved.”

•Romans 10:14 “How then shall they call on Him Who they have not believed?  And how shall they believe in Him of Whom they have not heard?  And how shall they hear without a preacher?

•Romans 10:17 “So then Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.

•Jeremiah 29:13 “You will seek Me (God) and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart.”

It may not be easy to give up your old sinful ways, and turn in faith to Jesus Christ; but it is the only way to  SALVATION,  AND IT IS WORTH IT! 

 CALL UPON (THE FULLNESS OF) THE NAME OF JESUS AND YOU WILL BE SAVED!

  7. Hello Pastor Bill,
    I understand that lower back pain.... I pray for relief for you with yours.
    I remember that Carol 'Hark The Herald...' Adam's likeness now efface ..... Stamp Thine image in its place...

    Sure wish more would understand that Sanctification is an on going process.

    That illustration of your Grandfather sure tied up the Adam 'gene' in all of us. Thank You for sharing PB.
