Message: The Secret to a Thankful Heart

After Jesus heals 10 lepers, only one returns to thank Him. What is the secret to a thankful heart? it is the conscious choice not to forget to thank Jesus for what He has done for you. Who are you more like? The nine? Or the one? Let’s be like the one!

15 One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. 16 He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him—and he was a Samaritan.

17 Jesus asked, “Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine? 18 Has no one returned to give praise to God except this foreigner?” 19 Then he said to him, “Rise and go; your faith has made you well.”

Luke 17:15-19 NIV

Message: The Key to Everything – Faith

 Salvation cannot be earned. Sin separates of from God. If we want to be right with God, God made a way for that to happen by the giving of His perfect son who died on the cross for our sins. Through Jesus’  sacrificial death and resurrection, we have the opportunity to be forgiven, to be reconciled, and to be accepted by God. The key to open all those doors is our faith. God wants us to believe in Him and trust Him with every detail of our lives.

Put your faith in action. What is your faith leading you to do? Will you give God your very best today?

Message: Faith-Life

When you have faith in Jesus Christ, it makes a difference.  It puts you on a path going in a different direction. You have different purposes, a different mission.

 Let’s think about the benefits of the death of Jesus Christ. Because of His sacrifice:

  1. We have the capacity to repent.
  2. We have a Gospel to believe.
  3. We can experience cleansing for sin.
  4. We can have a joy of being forgiven.

I have an exchanged life, a new life. I AM HEAVEN BOUND! I will not receive God’s wrath because Jesus died for me  He died for you too. Would you like to trust Christ right now?

“See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God” — 1 John‬ ‭3:1‬ ‭NASB‬‬

Faith and Adventure: Living Under the Influence (Acts 8:14-17)

God responds to faith. When we walk by faith, it is and will be a great adventure! God does the impossible and He can do the miraculous in and through us. The Spirit-filled life is not intended to be an option. It is an essential part of following the Lord. We need to experience the filling of the Holy Spirit if we desire to push back the darkness, if we want to make a difference in the Kingdom, blaze a path for others to follow, and impact our community and others around us. We need to be filled with God’s Holy Spirit.

What does it mean to be filled with the Holy Spirit?

Being filled means…

  1. He’s getting more of you. There’s no off limits!
  2. You’re’ living under the influence.
  3. It’s an ongoing experience.

God’s plan is for His people to receive Him and surrender to Him every day. Does the Holy Spirit have control? Maybe it’s time to get serious and ask God to fill you with His Holy Spirit. Ask the Lord to fill you – to rule and to reign every portion of your life.

“But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.” John 14:26 RSV

Blessings!
