Message: Keep the Fire Burning

Is your fire for Jesus burning bright today or is it dim or burned out? How do you keep the spiritual fire burning in your life? If you want to keep the fire burning, start your day focused on the fire. In other words, focus on God each day. Add fire wood to the fire with daily devotions, scripture reading and prayer. Arrange each day of your life according to the fire, and feed the flame with Christian fellowship.

If you have lost your spiritual fire, Jesus is inviting you to come to Him today. He is willing to provide the spark to revive you.

Prayer: Lord, help us to be more devoted today. Revive us again!

Message: Attitude is Everything

Your attitude impacts every part of your life. It can make you or break you, make you friends or make you enemies, make you happy or miserable, a success or a failure. Luke 6:45 tells us, “A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.” In other words, your attitude reflects the real you.

Your attitude also reveals your choices. Do you focus on the positive or the negative? The good or the bad? A bad attitude is like a flat tire.You can change it! You can choose to blame your circumstances on your boss, the stock market, your job, etc. OR you can choose to see everything in a good light. The choice is yours. You can choose to look for the good in each day. You can choose to speak positive words (Ephesians 4:29). You can choose to take charge of your thoughts — garbage in/garbage out or good in/good out (Philippians 4:8).

Is your attitude where it needs to be? If not, there is good news! You can ask for forgiveness today and pray for a Godly attitude. There are so many reasons to have a good attitude. The choice is yours. Which way will you focus?

May we apply the truth of God’s word to our attitudes!

Message: There’s Hope

In this world, you will have problems. In John 16:33 Jesus reminds us, “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” Folks, there’s hope! We have a God who is an everlasting God. He has no deficiencies. He is the all-powerful Creator, and He never gets tired. There is no problem that our Lord can’t handle. God is still here and He cares. He wants to exchange your weakness for His strength. God is inviting you to trust in Him. He wants to give you strength. Will you place your hope in the Lord today?
