[10/22/19]   You must make the real business of life—the salvation of souls—the real business of your life. Do not waste your life living for yourself. Do not waste it pursuing pleasure, position, or possessions. Do not waste it merely collecting experiences and adventures. Do not waste it at all. Instead, use it for that which will bring you the most fulfillment on Earth and the most joy in eternity. Invest your life in glorifying God by the salvation of souls.

God may lead you to be a schoolteacher, a homemaker, a missionary, an artist, a doctor, or a musician. You may sense God directing you to be a businessperson, an engineer, a laborer, a lawyer, a farmer, a church planter, or a technician. Whatever career God guides you into, let it be a platform by which you help cultivate the salvation of souls.

[10/22/19]   Evangelism is why you are here. You will never be fulfilled until you live for the glory of God. You cannot glorify God unless you live a lifestyle of evangelism

How to glorify God? God gets the most glory, and we find the deepest fulfillment when our lives are concentrated on “the salvation of souls.” God is glorified as we lead others to also become God glorifiers. In other words, God gets glory when we help others get saved. The apostle Paul tells us that God’s glory through the salvation of others should be the driving motivation behind everything we do, even what we eat or drink: “Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. Give no offense, either to the Jews or to the Greeks or to the church of God, just as I also please all men in all things, not seeking my own profit, but the profit of many, that they may be saved” (1 Cor 10:31–33).

[10/22/19]   Purpose of Your Life:Man’s chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him forever.

Our primary purpose is to glorify God and derive our greatest joy from him. Yet there is more. Not only were we created for God’s glory, but we were saved to live for God’s glory: “For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s”

“A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion” (Prov. 18:2 ESV). Careful study can help us to avoid misinterpretation and see what God really has to say, rather than stick to what we already think. [Elwell, Walter A. & Yarbrough, Robert W. (2019).

A minister was once preaching from Acts 17:26: “From one ancestor he made all nations to inhabit the whole earth, and he allotted the times of their existence and the boundaries of the places where they would live” (NRSV). To the astonishment of some listeners, he angrily stressed the point that he resented seeing interracial dating and marriage between Caucasians and African Americans. “It makes my blood boil!” he declared. He explained that Acts 17:26 prohibited this—God “allotted . . . the boundaries of the places where they would live.” To the minister this meant that blacks and whites ought to stay away from each other and remain on their own sides of the tracks. But he could arrive at this conclusion only by ignoring the same verse’s opening words: “From one ancestor he made all nations.” Because Adam and Eve are, as the Bible teaches, everyone’s first parents, we share a commonality that ought to rule out racist attitudes.

[05/22/19]   Beware of your motives: Apostle Paul strains toward a day of judgment when hidden things will be uncovered and motives will be exposed ( 1 Cor 4:5). On that day the comparative assessments of others will mean nothing ( 4:3a). One’s own self-appraisal will prove faulty ( 4:3b), for the heart has a remarkable capacity to deceive itself ( Ps 19:12; Jer 17:9). Even the conscience, one’s internal dialogue with oneself, can not be relied upon ( 4:4).

[04/19/19]   This is horrible place to allow God's children to stand up on stage and use profanity. I support punk rock and teens, but not if it they are doing things that are ungodly. Who teaches their kids this? the ungodly of course. Parents keep your kids away from this scene.

The judgment, though severe, would be well-deserved. The entire society was corrupted by greed (v. 13a). Both prophets and priests misled the people by overlooking the magnitude of the people’s sins and promising them peace (vv. 13b-15). They misrepresented the Lord by giving people the impression that adherence to God’s ethical standards does not really matter.

The Lord had tried to get their attention, urging them to walk in the moral path he had prescribed for them in his law. This path would lead to blessing and security, but the people refused to follow it (v. 16). The Lord’s prophets, compared here to watchmen on a city wall, warned of impending judgment, but the people refused to listen to them (v. 17). Of course, the people maintained a semblance of religion. They offered aromatic incense and sacrifices to God, apparently thinking that such devotion to ritual insulated them from judgment (v. 20). But such sacrifices are not God’s priority; he desires obedience. Only then do sacrifices have any real meaning (see as well 1 Sam. 15:22; Isa. 1:11-17; Hos. 6:6; Amos 5:21-24; Mic. 6:6-8).

[04/18/19]   In reading Jeremiah and God's judgment mirrors especially
today with followers of Trump:Judah should have feared their protector and provider, but instead they rebelled against him by ignoring the fundamental principles of his law (vv. 23-24a). Wicked men violated God’s principles of social justice and became wealthy by exploiting the weak and vulnerable (vv. 26-28). Prophets and priests operated outside God’s authority, with the approval of the people (v. 30). For these reasons God decided to withhold his blessings (v. 25) and, as the avenger of the downtrodden, was compelled to bring judgment on the nation (v. 29).

[02/08/19]   To Have Friends You Must Be a Friend
Friendship is an important theme in Scripture. This is perhaps best exemplified by the Hebrew term rēaʿ, "friend, comrade, companion" (BDB 946.1; HALOT 1254.1-3), which appears in numerous passages describing a true friend. A person who is generous (Prov. 19:6), as well as gracious of speech and pure in heart (Prov. 22:11), will win friends. Friends enjoy spending time with each other in their homes (Zech. 3:10) and help one another with personal chores (Deut. 19:5). Close friends confide in one another (Ps. 55:13-14). The epitome of interpersonal communication, after which Moses compared Yahweh’s self-revelation to him, is that of true friends (Exod. 33:11). Good friends provide sound counsel to one another (Prov. 27:9), sharpen one another’s moral character (Prov. 27:17), and are willing to let one another know when one of them is sinning (Prov. 27:6). A friend demonstrates loyalty (2 Sam. 3:8; Prov. 17:17), can be trusted (Ps. 41:9), and may even be closer than a brother (Prov. 18:24). A true friend sides with his companion in the face of personal opposition (2 Sam. 16:17) and does not dissolve the relationship over misunderstanding (Prov. 27:10). When one friend suffers, a true friend feels his or her pain (Ps. 35:14), provides the comfort of one’s presence (Judg. 11:37-38; Job 2:11), shows kindness and comfort (Job 6:14), and prays for his or her friend (Job 16:20-21). The test of true friendship is how one responds to his or her companion when others criticize that friend (Prov. 16:28), when one’s friend suffers calamity (Job 19:14,19, 21; Pss. 38:11; 88:18), and when one friend inadvertently offends the other in some way (Prov. 17:9). A friend does not break his or her promises (Ps. 55:20). While a person may enjoy numerous friendships, one’s closest friend is called "your friend who is as your own soul" (Deut. 13:6 NASB).

[12/11/18]   Everybody plays the fool once in awhile but the biggest fool is an Atheist!

[12/07/18]   Enemies may come against you. People will try to use your short comings against you. But remember in the book of Daniel, Daniel’s friends are given the Babylonian names Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. They refuse to bow down to King Nebuchadnezzar’s image. A fiery furnace awaits them!

A fiery furnace may await you but do not let fear make you buckle. No matter how it comes out, God going make it workout. Have faith during your darkest times..

[11/03/18]   Our funding is through our members, from the people’s lives that we have changed, and from those businesses that had nothing when they started until we gave our services to them free of charge until there business was up and running. Therefore, our demographics does not include the general public for revenue. Those who give to them ministry are personally familiar with our pastor and our members as well as the work we do for others.

You player haters out there trying to give bad reviews on social media, yelp, and whatever else that has no bearing on us because we have excluded the demographics of the general public. Yes, we are like any other business that uses a P.O. Box.

Our motto is of Jesus: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men. Philippians 2:7

[10/31/18]   Congregation, Where Art Thou?

One of the first activities for emergency preparedness planning is to know and map where every congregant family lives. How will you communicate in a disaster?

Step 1: To carry out this procedure today requires getting out detailed street maps and marking where every family lives. This provides the framework for assigning leaders (walkers and drivers) who will be responsible for checking on designated families in their area in the event of a disaster.

Step 2: Select leaders who are in good physical health (in order to walk) and/or have a vehicle they can drive. Collect the name, address, and telephone number of each leader. Leaders should never go to bed without a full tank of gas and toilet tissue in their car.

Step 3: Leaders should be assigned to check on selected families in reasonable walking distance from their home (the walkers) or within reasonable driving distance from their residence (the drivers). Make those family assignments.

Step 4: Have the leaders take a dry run to their assigned families to collect the following information about their members: name, ages, medical needs, and other special needs. This dry run enables an accurate accounting of every person and enables leaders to anticipate potential needs in the event of a disaster. Leaders must also calculate how long it takes to get to each house. Your house of worship can then approximate how long it will take to hear back from each leader about the status of their assigned families and, ultimately, how long it would take to learn about the well-being of all members.

Step 5: Leaders are also responsible for teaching their assignees how to store food, water, medicine, and financial resources, and to help them establish an emergency travel plan should evacuation become necessary. Needless to say, this necessitates that the leaders receive training. At least once a year, hold an emergency preparedness drive within your congregation for all congregants to check their supplies and pick up new supplies if needed.

Step 6: Create a master telephone list of the physicians, nurses, mental health professionals, and pharmacists in your congregation. These are critical occupations, and leaders may need to consult them should they find their assigned families are in extreme distress.

Step 7: Establish a backup communication system should the phone lines go down and cell towers become overloaded. Use ham radio operators and walkie-talkies to keep the lines of communication open. During Hurricane Katrina the Vietnamese community in the Gulf Region successfully used ham radios to keep their congregants and community informed.

Step 8: Conduct a dry run of the emergency preparedness plan every six months. This enables everyone to practice their role, engage in a discussion of food, water, medical, and financial preparedness, evaluate evacuation contingencies, and improve the efficiency of the process of accounting for all members of the congregation. All congregants should be instructed to add their assigned leader to the list of phone numbers they will contact to let others know they are all right in case of disaster. This will prevent leaders from losing precious time and resources looking for members who are away from home when tragedy strikes.

[10/29/18]   For those of you wanted to sit hurricanes out and bad weather. This is for you.
A man lived in a known flood plain. He turned on the TV and the weatherman was announcing that extreme rain was taking place and that all people should evacuate to higher ground. The man said to himself: “God will take care of me.” The next morning a policeman knocked on his door and told him he was in a mandatory evacuation area and should leave immediately. The man responded: “God will take care of me.” By late afternoon the water was up to his second story window. A boater saw him in his house and offered to take him out of harm’s way. The man responded: “God will take care of me.” Finally, as night was falling and the man was on his roof a helicopter flew over and offered to rescue him. The man responded yet again: “God will take care of me.” The man then drowned in the flood and came before God. The man was angry and demanded to know of God: “I was a man of deep faith. Why did you not take care of me?” God responded:
I had the weather man alert you with plenty of time to get out with all your possessions. I then sent a policeman to alert you with time to take some of your possessions. I then sent a boat to get you out. Finally, I sent a helicopter. Why did you not have faith in me to accept the help I offered? Faith works both ways.”

[10/28/18]   Happy Halloween but make sure you go to church Sunday Morning also.

[10/02/18]   Traumatic events of any kind turn the life of a child upside-down. To a child, trauma is like an ongoing, festering splinter.

It is a rare child who escapes trauma entirely as they are growing into adulthood. By conservative estimates, about 40 percent of American children will have at least one potentially traumatizing experience by the time they are 18. This can include the death of a close family member, continuing physical or emotional abuse or neglect, sexual abuse, a serious accident, domestic violence or violent crime. Look at the children in your Sunday School and consider the amount of sexual abuse they could be experiencing at this time. About 27 percent of women above 18, and 16 percent of men above this age, report having been sexually abused as children.4

Trauma sends four messages to children:

1. Your world is no longer safe.

2. Your world is no longer kind.

3. Your world is no longer predictable.

4. Your world is no longer trustworthy.

Parents don't get so infatuated with your own life that you miss the signs from your children. Then, one day, you wonder how they got to such a negative place.

[09/13/18]   Listening is one of the most loving gifts you can give to another person, whether it be counselee, friend or family member. Remember:

Something happens when we listen
not just with our ears
but with our eyes.
Something happens when we wait out
a griever’s words.
Something happens when we express our care
in calming ways.
Something happens
when we keep our promises
even when less than convenient.
Something happens when we pay attention
to the questions of the griever
rather than offer a cheap answer.
Something happens when hearts touch.
Something happens when we remember
Jesus’ promise
“Where two or three are gathered . . .
there I will be, too.”
Something happens when a caregiver
becomes a grief sharer.

[08/31/18]   Do you often feel that you give 110% into blessing others but people do you wrong or you don't get recoginition that you deserve? Well now, you know how God feels. Do unto others as you would like others to do unto you. Your value comes from being a child of most high God. Proving yourself to people is not required.
