High school football coach gives moving speech on race to players

Good morning! It's a new day to start fresh.

Mr. Walt Disney...these words on prayer make him even more of an inspiration than before.

[04/12/20]   He is Risen, Indeed!

Because of Him, we can soar above the storm.

Well said.

Happy New Year y Feliz Año Nuevo!
From all of us at Waterview!

Happy New Year!

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death.

Evolution of Worship Music - A Cappella Medley

Well done!

A cappella medley filled with songs still in use today, but with connections to almost 1500 years of Christian worship. It's all crammed into 7.5 minutes, so...

Happy Wednesday.

Waterview Baptist Church

For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: "You shall love your neighbor as yourself."

Martin Luther said he would preach the Gospel to himself, everyday. We can learn from this needed habit.

Many of us have the tendency to create a Christianity, within our own minds, that is performance based.

We seek to gain God's approval when we "do good" and sense His supposed firm hand whenever we "do bad," when we sin. We beat ourselves up for messing up again, weighed down by guilt and condemnation.

We also look down on others who do not perform as we do (when we do good) or, as they should be doing.

This type of mentality suits Santa Clause better than Christ. You better watch out!

But Christ speaks out joyfully, you are beloved and accepted, already, in my finished work! I have loved you with an everlasting love.

Though sin separates you from me, I nailed it to the cross over 2,000 years ago and gave you the gift of my love and righteousness in it's place. A love that casts out all fear and that cannot be earned but, received, for that is the free gift of God.

Open this gift and start living in it.

Grow in the Grace and knowledge of the Lord.
Walk in loving obedience to Him for, if the Son has set you free, you are free, indeed!

Monergism

Repentance is not forsaking sin that you may turn to Christ. It is turning to Christ that you might forsake sin.

Monergism

Salvation is a complete overhaul.

What do Christians mean when they say that people need to be "saved"?

Do we mean that people need to just modify their behavior and obey God's law? It would be great if it were that simple, but that is not what we mean.

It means, rather, that human beings are prisoners, captives and slaves to their idols, to their own lusts, to the world system and to the devil. That we cannot extract ourselves from these things because, like those who have Stockholm syndrome, we have fallen in love with our captors, i.e. we love those things which are doing us the most harm. And while we all vaguely recognize that something is not right in the world and with the nature of human beings, we tend to shrug this off, suppress and ignore it, and willingly come under the illusion that we live in freedom. We cling to the falsehood of human progress and and think human ingenuity will somehow deliver us from ourselves and our problems.

We pridefully hold to the false idea that we are something and can do something to make things right. But in the end we cannot extract ourselves from our captivity. No wisdom, no plan, no power, no understanding, and no technology can do so. The problem runs far too deep in us for that. Like the Hebrews in Egypt we are slaves needing rescue from our captivity. The tyranny of our idols and lusts are too powerful for nature to conquer. We need redemption from the outside.

So salvation is not behavior modification. No. We are too entangled in the web of our own making to get out. We first need supernatural intervention by One like us who breaks the bonds and leads us out of slavery. Then, and only then, after being freed from our captors are we free to do right, to love mercy and do justly and to walk humbly with our God.

But those who ally themselves with the tyranny of sin, like the Egyptians, will experience fullness of God's wrath, which is the ultimate thing we need to be saved from.

Crock-Pot Introduces New 430-Gallon Model: 'The Baptist'

babylonbee.com BOCA RATON, FL—In an exciting breakthrough, representatives for Crock-Pot’s research and development team confirmed Monday that they are prepared to release their largest high-end model to date: “The Baptist,” a giant, 430-gallon slow-cooker.The Jacuzzi-sized Crock-Pot can pr...

[08/14/19]   The religious system is so good at programming us to build something or to work toward a tangible goal that we feel worthless if we can’t put a finger on how our life breaks down into measurable units. The Gnostic concept of the continual need to achieve greater levels of “spirituality” fits well into religious Christianity. It effectively drives the psychological system of institutional values translating into something like, “we will build a tower.”

Amazing how religion keeps people trying to reach to God in Heaven as if he never came to earth!

Living in a real relationship with the indwelling Christ should eliminate the need for continually searching for God outside of ourselves. But without that relationship we will constantly strive to do well and build something that solicits the praise and validation of others. Yet Jesus made it clear to the Pharisees that it was impossible for them to believe if they received the praise of men. (John 5:44) And that’s the bottom line impact of every substitute for Christ’s life. Genuine trust in him is destroyed so that eternal things are traded for the empty, temporal pursuits that set aside Christ and glorify man.

We are exhorted to build, however. “Therefore, encourage one another and build each other up, just as you are doing.” 1Thes. 5:11, Eph. 4:29, Jude 1:20.

Giving of our time, resources and energy to brothers and sisters in need as he directs also builds his church more efficiently than a hundred man made programs. This kind of building can never be measured, is never finished and seldom solicits praise, but it helps make ready a dwelling place for the Holy Spirit and reaps an eternal reward.

Enslaved: A Theology of Addiction

https://blog.tms.edu/enslaved-a-theology-of-addiction?utm_content=98669507&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook&hss_channel=fbp-109332425989

blog.tms.edu Can I ever truly be free of addiction? The answer is yes, because you are enslaved, not addicted. And there is always hope of liberation.

My dear friends-

Jesus set us a great example of the humility of a servant and helps us to serve the same way..

He even washed Judas' feet, with full foreknowledge of his betrayal.

May He give us all servants hearts such as His.

#learningtoserveinlove

Turn your eyes upon Jesus.

I think of Peter, how he walked across the water while looking boldly upon his Saviour.

But, like us, all the things going on around Peter, made him lose sight of the One who would get him through it all. Then he fell down. Still, Christ reached out His hand to him.

Right now, what in your life is beyond Christ's reach? What is too difficult for Him? What is beyond His love?

I know you'll say, 'nothing.' But, set to know Him and trust Him so well, that the same confidence you have in Him, now, is the same faith you'll have in your storm.

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on thee; because he trusteth in thee.
The prophet, Isaiah

"Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”
- Jesus

When we speak about giving, it so often implies money. However, giving can be done in so many forms. Let us, rather, have a giving heart, that delights to meet the needs we encounter in our path.

"He that has two coats, let him impart to him that has none; and he that has food, let him do likewise."
-Jesus

We continue to explore the reality of suffering in a disciple's life while in our current theme, "What is Discipleship?"

Jesus is calling people to follow HIM.

He did not call us to follow commandments, a book, a denomination, a political, religious or, a moral life.

He calls us into a relationship with Him, that springs up into eternal life.

He does not promise a life of ease, prosperity and health but, He promises to be with us in even our most difficult moments.

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

[07/08/19]   The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end; they are new EVERY morning.

Something to think about...

VBS 2019 is still in effect. Let all the little ones Come to me, says Jesus.

Come join the fun, 6-8 pm, there's two days left.

We'll have a barbeque and a live petting zoo on Friday Night.

General information

With members traveling from Garland, Plano, Carrollton, and Wylie, we believe that worshipping God with honest sincerity is a key to spiritual fulfillment and is part of the reason why we stand out among the dozens of other churches in Richardson. Come join us for services where we still sing the hymns from yesterday, enjoy the choruses from today, and are looking forward to what God has in store for us tomorrow. Because we are still growing and expanding our ministry, there is a place for you to be a part. We have services on Wednesday and Sunday. Have friends that speak Spanish? We have our services translated live. Come join us and see for yourself. We have taken up the challenge of Paul who said “And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law; To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law. To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.”
