A few weeks ago... We focused on issues that MEN ALONE are facing in this world!
And looked at God's Design for how men, and fathers are to answer their calling from God...Regardless of the pressures, trends or beliefs of the fallen world around us!
Today, for God’s Glory… And request from several people... This Mother's Day... We will do the same for the ladies! Because YOU, ladies... Need to know... There is NOT a more precious, valuable, powerful force on this earth... Than that of a woman! And it is my goal... My duty before God...
To help you see that worth... And answer that calling!
Just before we began our Quarantine, we completed a 2-week study about how to Sanctify ourselves (set ourselves apart for serving God), recognizing many of the things we have accepted in our daily lives, which in actuality, are sin in God's Word. Hopefully you were honest with yourselves about some of the things in our lives which we never recognized as sin, or simply avoided dealing with as sin. But if you are like most, recognizing the sin is only the first, very small step. Many, many Christians have at least one thing in their lives which goes beyond a temptation to an outright constant battle. Even worse, sometimes a "full-blown, bags packed, moved into the house" habitual sin that is always with you. One you have become stuck in, maybe for months or years, surrendering to simply living with, constantly defeated by; that one you vow every other day to never fall into again, only to fall again, in deeper shame and estrangement from God! Well, take heart: even the Apostle Paul clearly understood your pain: Romans 7:15, 18-19.
So, how do we beat this kind of sin? Can we ever expect to beat this kind of sin? Yes you can!
Do all dogs go to Heaven? Let's answer up front!
So far in our series we have discussed...That the final Heaven will be here on a New Earth!
That we will have new, earthly bodies, not bodiless souls...That there will, in fact still be- time, day, night, & seasons...And lastly, we have taken a close, glorious look at the New Jerusalem City that will come down to earth for Christ to dwell with man!
Let’s start with the most basic and foundational question we could ask ourselves about our Christian walk: “Why are you still here?” Since we have become disciples of Jesus Christ, what is His main calling for all of us while still in this fallen world? Why has He even kept us here? We could probably get as many answers as we have listeners, but there is one solid, Biblical answer—so, let’s simply allow Scriptures to answer Their own question:
On Easter Morning, almost every church in America has visitors which are not usually there on a regular basis. That, along with the fact that our current dilemma which places us live streaming online probably gives us one of the largest, and most varied audiences I've had the privilege of sharing God's Word with on an Easter morning.
Last week we began an awesome study about Heaven! If you were unable to be with us, please read the newsletter or listen online for details on what we are going to quickly recap!! This is the fast-forward to our beginning today: Many people never seriously think about or anticipate Heaven, unless they are older or in poor health...Often because fairytales, myths and misconceptions have led us to see Heaven in a very different light than Scriptures describe It! And although it is better than no life, or a life in hell... It seems that we will be giving up a lot from this world when we get there...With visions of cherub spirits, clouds, harps, singing... And not much else! Most have COMPLETELY MISSED the reality of Heaven that is described in Scriptures!!
The Seed Blog: Oh My Goodness, It IS True! (Wednesday nights sermons parts 1, 2, 3: Expository Apologetics)
We intend to prove that the Scriptures contained in the Bible are: Accurately preserved Documents; written in unparalleled unity; by eyewitnesses with nothing to gain, and everything to lose; which were verified by contemporary eyewitnesses of friendly, neutral, and hostile persuasion alike; and that these Documents, written like none other in their uniqueness, have been proven trustworthy beyond any reasonable doubt historically, archeologically, and especially prophetically; effecting the entire world for all succeeding generations unlike any Documents before or after; testifying in proof and self-proclamation, they are by absolute necessity, Divine and not human, in origin.
Who really looks forward to Heaven anyway? Give me an answer about something...Do you ever seriously think about...Better yet... Ever seriously ANTICIPATE...WITH EXCITEMENT...Leaving this world and going to Heaven?! Many if completely honest, would have to confess "NO!" That is... Until you begin to get to MY stage in life! And you begin to feel age creeping up on you...And things stop working as they once did...And you CAN'T do all of the things you'd like...And you begin to see your friends and family going Home one by one...And you've experienced many of the things you've wanted in life...
We are all suddenly finding ourselves living in a different world this week. For the last couple of weeks, our Family at Word of Light has been studying what it is like to really, practically set ourselves apart from the world in order to grow close to and serve God as Scriptures tell us. And one of the biggest excuses we always have in this subject is that we just don't have the time to do some of the things we know we need to do. And although this is simply just not the case anyway, because you make the time for what is important, always—we all now find ourselves with some extra time, don't we? No sports schedules, dance schedules, movie nights, school functions, eating out…
