Overcoming through Christ

Overcoming through Christ

Welcome to 2021! It may be hard to believe, but you survived 2020: the fears about the pandemic, the frustrations over the police force, and the volatility of the presidential race. 2020 was a challenging year, but you overcame.

Did you know that overcoming is your birthright as a believer? God did not save you merely to survive life on planet earth. He did not call you to simply hang in there until that grand reunion in glory. He called you to thrive here and now. And we can, because Jesus already overcame the world!

KJV John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

None of us knows what this year holds. But Jesus does, and He will coach you to victory through every step of your journey. In fact, with His help, there is nothing you cannot overcome. Claim your birthright in Christ!

A House for Me

A House for Me

from Series: Prayer Points on Property

Moses built the Lord a house; we call it the tabernacle. Solomon built Him a house and we call it the temple.

Acts 7:48 Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands.

Why are men so set on building God a house, when He doesn’t even dwell there? The prophet Jeremiah reminds us that God fills heaven and earth (Jer. 23:24). We don’t need a house to place God for He is everywhere. And if He wanted a house, He could build one much more majestic than we.

But there remains a need for a house, not for God’s benefit but for ours. We need a place where we can pray and worship and meet with others who wish to do the same. We need a place to remind us that the God who is everywhere is also right here. We need a place to display His fame and to invite others to call upon His name. To these ends then, let us pray for a house for the Lord.

Like a Dream

Like a Dream

from Series: Prayer Points on Property

KJV Psalm 126:1 When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.

It must have seemed like a dream when a new leader rose to power and told the Jews they could return to Jerusalem and rebuild their temple. It had to be stunning; the Jews must have shaken their heads in disbelief that after 70 long years they were actually going home; that they actually had a home. But God had done the impossible. He had turned a dream into reality so much so that the Jews were laughing (v. 2) and singing God’s praise because He had done great things for them (v. 3).

Does it seem like a dream, like a long shot, for our church to have its own place? Believe the Lord can “turn again” for us. If He could bring the Jews into favor with a new leader, then He can bring our church into favor with this landlord. Then we will be like them, laughing in wonder at the God who still does impossible things for His people.

Changed by the Virus?

Changed by the Virus?

“Unanticipated, Unprecendented, Unsettling”

These are just a few of the adjectives people use to describe the times in which we live. There is hardly a way in which our lives have not been touched by the virus:

from the way we buy groceries,

 

 

 

 

 

 

to the way we do school,

 

 

 

 

 

 

to the way we worship.

 

 

 

 

 

No doubt, you have reached out to God many times in prayer for protection for your family and the community from this spreading virus. At the same time, you may feel your connection to God slipping due to your distance from worship. So I have a question for you.

How has the virus changed how you relate to God?
