The most important thing....

The most important thing you will ever do is know and love Jesus, the Christ. There is no choice more important than this one.  Many will choose something else or someone else to know and love but in the end anything you choose instead of Jesus will leave you with eternal regrets for your choice.

A ways away and a while ago

This morning our pastor worked through a passage in Joshua 3. It was a great message on God's leading, our obedience and how we can walk with him in faith. As he worked through the passage it was clear that the miracle they experienced had happened "a ways away and a while ago." In other words the miracle had happened hours or days before and they became aware of it when the results of the miracle became visible to them. How often do we see something God has been working on for a long time? It's been in the works and only now revealed....in fact most of his works are like that...a miracle for us, but a work of God done before we ever saw it. Just because you don't see the results of your faith and God's promises doesn't mean anything, just wait....he's working....it probably happened a ways away and a while ago and is just now getting to your need. Are you aware God's timing is always perfect? You will see his love revealed in time in history....just wait.

Worship or Whine?

Each of us go through trials, tribulations and heartaches in our lives. It's unavoidable, it's part of being human. Our response will be to worship or whine, to praise and trust God or complain about the things that have happened. Our response will depend on our view of God and his role in our lives. Do we see him involved, caring, directing and working or do we believe we are completely on our own. Whether we worship or whine will depend on our view of God and his work in our lives.
