I will be preaching this morning in Reserve, NM at FBC!!! PTL!!! Service time is 11am, if you do not have a home Church I pray I see you! Make sure and mark your calendar to come see and hear the wonderful woman of God Shari Johnson from West Virginia in Octorber at FBC in Reserve and at FBC in Glenwood!
I love to study! I love to have God with me! I love to hear from God! I love the discernment that God gives us! I love being all sold out for God.
I have been praying and studying about the Church in America. When I see drama in a Church, it is because the eyes of folks are not on Jesus! The same thing in families and business. Trouble happens when we do not stay focused on God and His ways. The way we live shows the world who we really are. Who are you, or what are you focused on this Sunday morning? What you focus on is what you become.
I love this……..
The way we live demonstrates God’s glory to the world around us. When we display unconditional love, accept others, show kindness even when wronged, we are being obedient to God and that gives Him glory. In fact, it was Jesus who said, “I have glorified Thee on earth; I have finished the work Thou gavest me to do” (John 17:4). Early in His ministry, the Lord Jesus exhorted those in His kingdom to “Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven” (Matt. 5:16). The presence of God is to be manifested in His body, the church. When God is disobeyed, His glory departs (1 Sam. 4:21). That does not mean He personally leaves, but it does mean His attributes can no longer be seen. That is why it is imperative we continually acknowledge our sin and turn from it. Only then can we truly give Him glory (Cf. Joshua 7:19). The early church understood what it meant to participate together in fellowship so that God was honored. Whether it was the “breaking of bread” (celebration), “praying” (intercession), the “selling of their property, possessions, and sharing” (participation) or “with gladness and sincerity worshipping together” (adoration), they cultivated every experience to express the will of Christ (cf. Acts 2:42-47). Because of Christ’s command to “…walk in a manner worthy of the Lord…” (Col. 1:10), it is essential that “The one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked” (1 John 2:6).
