Salvation

2 Corinthians 7:10 For the kind of sorrow God wants us to experience leads us away from sin and results in salvation. There’s no regret for that kind of sorrow. But worldly sorrow, which lacks repentance, results in spiritual death

In other words, don’t have regrets based on the things of this world. As God changes us it will be painful but leave us with no regrets as we are becoming stronger in our faith. The world has sorrow that misses the things that give us temporary satisfaction. Today, let God lead us in the direction that counts.

Love you all.

Give Back The Pen!

Hello my friends and welcome to Sunday. I pray that this week went well for all of you and you are closer to Jesus than ever before. If you don’t know Jesus as Savior today, please run to Him and accept His free (to you) gift of Salvation while you still have the choice to make, Amen?

Ok so I posted this quote this week and got a really good response from it so I thought I would expand upon my thoughts on this today. Sound good?

Stealing the pen…many believe that there is no point in making plans and setting a course for your life because things are already predetermined and nothing you or I do will make a difference. That could not be further from the truth this morning. Stay with me here and really soak in this next sentence and commit it to memory..

**Just because God knows the choices you will make does not take away the opportunity you have to make those choices**

David Fischer

The first lie is that you have no real choices; the second lie is that God doesn’t really care or He is not moving fast enough so you need to take back control of your life (steal the pen from God). You do all understand that God created EVERYTHING in the Universe right? You understand that God made you from dust into the sophisticated, complex, unbelievable creation that you have become right? So why in the world would you want to give up that direction and take your own? How well as it worked so far?

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” 

Isaiah 41:10

Friends, God is, always has been, and always will be in control of everything that is going on in His Creation. Unfortunately, the free will He has given us we take and mess things up. The reason we have this free will is God wanted us to love Him not by force but by CHOICE. Again, He knows what our choice will be, yet we still can make the choice. Today, make the choice to give back the pen of life to Jesus. He knows more about you than you ever will; He knew you before you were even created so of course He will have the best plans and the best paths for your life. Trust Him to do for you what you simply cannot do for yourself.

Give up the pen; in fact, give it up and NEVER take it back. The God of all Creation is just waiting to write your next Great Chapter. I promise you, it will be a best seller….

-Blessings and Love,

David

Intelligence and Faith

The reasoning of atheists never ceases to amaze me; there are 2 options to the Creation:

  1. All matter and life was created by pure chance from nothing. Basically one day nothing decided to form and create something.
  2. There was intent and design to all things by a Designer.

I’m a Christian but I can still think; which makes more sense to you? I believe not just with Faith but with common sense. That same Designer loves YOU personally and has such amazing things in store for you if you will just give your heart to Him.

In Jesus name and all God’s people said?

Fear God

Lord Jesus on this Sunday Morning I come to you in prayer. I pray that our Spirit would fear God again, commit to living Your Word not just reading it, and that the lost would finally come to know you as Savior. In Jesus name, and all God’s people said?

Agape Love,

David

Do You Know Jesus?

Do you understand that you are a sinner, and you believe that Jesus Christ came as the one and only Redeemer of sin? Are you ready to receive God’s gift of His Son, Jesus Christ? If so, believe in Christ, repent of your sins, and commit the rest of your life to Him as Lord:

Amen?

Agape Love,

Pastor David
