BUT IF THE 'WORLD' GETS INTO THE CHURCH,

THE CHURCH WILL GO DOWN IN DISGRACE!"

December 31

PASTOR'S CORNER

John 13:34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.”


FRIENDSHIP
Friendship is different from all other relationships. Unlike acquaintanceship, it is based on love. Unlike lovers and married couples, it is free of jealousy. Unlike children and parents, it knows neither criticism nor resentment.

Friendship has no status in law.  Business partnerships are based on a contract. Marriage is a covenant. Parents are bound by the law, as are children. But friends never cheat each other, or take advantage, or lie. Friends do not spy on one another, yet they have no secrets. Friends glory in each other’s successes and are downcast by their failures. Friends minister to each other, nurse each other. Friends give to each other, pray for each other, and stand always ready to help. Perfect friendship is rarely achieved, but at its height is a precious thing. (John 15: 12-15)

IS THERE A BIBLICAL PRESCRIPTION TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN? YES! ONE AND ONLY ONE. IT'S FOUND IN 2nd CHRONICLES 7:14; "IF MY PEOPLE WHO ARE CALLED BY MY NAME WILL HUMBLE THEMSELVES, AND PRAY AND SEEK MY FACE, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, THEN I WILL HEAR FROM HEAVEN, AND WILL FORGIVE THEIR SINS AND HEAL THEIR LAND." 

*********************************************

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!

PRAY FOR: The True  Church of Jesus Christ (NOT THE MORMONS) TO NOT give in to the pressure from the world for Spiritual Correctness, ( that we would confront the make-believer who claims to be believers with the true Gospel of Jesus Christ). The Lord has not given a License to Sin!

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 FOR: Our Church to continue in our Teaching God's Word Without Compromise.

     Admit You Are a Sinner in Need of a Savior:

    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!

      I found this to be long and hard to follow, but I will go through it again at a later date. This is, I'm sure a good topic, but sort of hard to follow. God bless you and yours.

    7. Hi Pastor Bill,
      Wow, that was a powerful song your son did with his friend. Thank You for sharing with us.

      Todd's message about the most important thing God cares about is our relationship with Him. He brought that to light in a unique way.
      Everything that the Lord instructs us for is for our good - Jeremiah 29:11.
      Well said especially his scripture choices of Col. 6, 1 Timothy 6, Prov. 15.
      A simple life can be a Godly life.

      Pass along my thanks please.

    8. I am recovering well, and have followup testing the next couple weeks. A great affirmation that He is with us always, and to put our pain and struggle into His hands.

      Hope visit soon; maybe this Sunday as I'm on leave.

      Glad to hear that everyone liked the song..."I Will Find". Jan really did a good job on that. The storm stayed east of us, we ended up getting residual snow (well, about 4 inches or so, but residual compared to what the east coast got) from it. The WORST part is the extremely cold weather. Of all things winter, this is the worst. I can handle snow, mud, shoveling, driving conditions, but not so much the bitter cold.
