Reflections- "We are surrounded by a great cloud of people whose lives tell us what faith means. So let us run the race that is before us and never give up. We should remove from our
lives anything that would get in the way and the sin that so easily holds us back." - Hebrews 12:1
The Pastor's Perspective
I receive daily devotions via e-mail from the writings of Max Lucado one of my favorite Christian authors. Today's was especially good and I wanted to share it with you. It's entitled,
The Promised land Life:
"The promised land life isn't a physical territory; it's a spiritual reality. It's not real estate, but a real state of the mind and heart. Scripture calls it a life in which "we are more
than conquerors through Christ who loved us" (Romans 8:37).
"Paul describes it as a life in which "we do not lose heart" (2 Corinthians 4:16). A life in which we are "exceedingly joyful in all our tribulations" (2 Corinthians 7:4). In God's plan,
in God's promised land, we win more often than we lose; forgive as quickly as we're offended; and give as abundantly as we receive. We may stumble, but we do not collapse. We may
struggle, but we defy despair. We boost only in Christ, trust only in God, lean wholly on his power. We enjoy abundant fruit and increasing faith. We live the promised land
Sunday's message- "Help With My Prayers" Romans 8:26-27
See you Sunday!
