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!

PRAYER REQUESTS AND PRAISE REPORTS

Pray & Praise for 14 year old Hope:  Thank you for your prayers for Hope!!  God is answering!  Last week Hope we received the following praises!  She is doing GREAT with her walking!  What a THRILL to watch her!  She is working hard and is VERY motivated!  She is starting some pool therapy this week to help loosen and strengthen her ankles, feet, and overall range of motion.  She is able to go up and down stairs now.  She is making great progress and loves being back with all her friends at school.  She is doing well academically, also.  Her parents are so thankful for all those who are helping to make this possible!  Their hearts are overflowing with thankfulness to the Lord for the great work that He is doing in her life!

Praise the Lord:  For our two new church members, Ric and Todd.

Praise for: Phyllis, and her family are home safe in Ohio.

Pray for: The many in and around Valley Farms who do not know the Lord as their Lord and Savior,

Pray for: The many in our families and community who are caught up in the cult of Mormonism. Pray their eyes would be opened to the truth of the True Christ. That Christians would see the area in and around Valley Farms as a wide open MISSION FIELD.

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: Carol Adams who is going through some trying times!

Pray for: Carol's son Josh.

Pray for:  OUR PRESIDENT and VICE PRESIDENT,  THEY NEED OUR PRAYERS!!  

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..

Pray that: all who know Jesus as Lord and Savior would start to 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: That all men who are called into the pastorate would know the need to study to gain advanced Training into 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 encourage him, and 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!

  5. Timothy and Jeannette Missionaries Serving in Uganda, AfricaMarch 27, 2017 at 12:43 PM

    Pastor Bill and Kathy,

    Will be praying for Laura. In August a former MK from Kenya experienced the same thing…driving to church one Sunday, left side went numb, thought she was having a stroke (even though she’s in her late 30’s). Went to hospital, sent her to Tampa and Monday morning she was in surgery for a brain tumor. Her's is the fast growing kind and she’s had a 2nd surgery—still waiting to hear. Knowing all our friend has gone through makes it easier to pray for Laura.

    PS/We are starting to see signs of Spring. We have a few early calf crop, maybe a good year! Lord Bless you.

  11. Hi PB,
    I am almost caught up this week.... had to go to Fargo for 2 days on medical with the VA.

    Thank You for the message my friend.

    You are so right, the letter kills but the Spirit gives life! The Mosaic law is like grabbing concrete! I truly needs to be with a love for the Lord.
    I am so glad - He was willing - to take that bitter cup ....... (Had it not been for a place called Mount Calvary) That songs speaks volumes.
    I am so thankful for Grace - To serve out of love and not duty.

    My boot came off last Monday and I go back for an x-ray in a couple of weeks, Pray the screws are not coming loose.

    Keeping Laura (Todd"s cousin's wife) in prayer.

    God's Best to You my Friend
