A Family of Families
We will intentionally pass on our faith to the next generation of disciples and leaders, by being a family of families together, so that we fulfill the calling of God on each and every one of us.
New Year’s Resolution:
Let’s start living our lives by listening and doing what pleases God regardless of what we think or how we feel.
The Humility of Jesus
Jesus did what you and I would never do, to accomplish what we could never accomplish. Jesus lowered himself to us, so we could be lifted up to God.
CHRISTMAS IS ABOUT VICTORY
The first promise ever given about Christmas was spoken by God to Satan. God promised that a child would come and to have victory over Satan.
CHRISTMAS IS ABOUT REBIRTH
Christmas celebrates the eternal Jesus giving us the opportunity to be in God’s family. It is more about your rebirth than simply the birth of Jesus; it is about salvation and the gospel reaching out to the lost.
Jesus speaks to the church in Laodicea, calling them to be completely in for the gospel. Being zealous for Christ is the only acceptable way to live for Jesus.
“I KNOW YOUR WORKS”
Salvation is a free gift to us from God. However, the required response is to join Jesus in the mission (work) prescribed to us in Scripture. Works reveal belief.
A blending of theological, philosophical, or cultural, schools of thought that ultimately changes what we have. Jesus plus anything else is not biblical Christianity.
Jesus Speaks to the Churches
Jesus reveals himself uniquely to each local church and speaks to them according to their particular needs. Jesus is who we need, when we need him.
Jesus appears among the churches calling them to endure the tribulation before them so that the light of the Kingdom of Christ can shine out to others.
Jesus Speaks to Churches
Jesus reveals both himself and his message to bless churches so they will hear and obey [vs. 3]. Obedience implies the understanding and ability to live it out.
