Identity and Inheritance

Who are you?  What is your inheritance?  What does that mean here and now?

Pastor Ann has been leading us through a dynamic series to help us understand the answers to these questions.  This week she will put the last pieces of the puzzle together regarding our identity and inheritance.

In the first week she helped us to see that we live in the natural world.  When we take God into account, suddenly everything around us becomes more significant, especially the concept of who we might be or become.

Week 2 brought us into the concept of Kingdom Citizenship.  Since we live in a republic, we may never have given thought to what it means to have responsibilities to a King that go hand in hand with our rights.

Last week she explained that we are JOINT HEIRS with Jesus Himself!  As children of God, we have been given the same rights and authority that God gave to the Son of Man.

This Sunday, at 10:55 a.m. she will bring all these pieces together so that we will be able to see what it means for us, as God’s children.

You don’t want to miss this one!  Come a bit early if you like and share breakfast with us at 9:00 a.m. or just coffee if that’s too early.  We’ll be having adult Sunday School class at 9:30, although there is no childcare available at that time.

 

Satan hates prayer

“Satan dreads nothing but prayer. His one concern is to keep the saints from praying…. He laughs at our toil, he mocks our wisdom, but he trembles when we pray.”
—Samuel Chadwick

Are you struggling with issues that seem to have appeared out of nowhere?  Does it seem there are brick walls everywhere you turn?  Do you feel like its one step forward and two steps back?

Satan is manipulating you.  His greatest desire is for you to be distracted from God.  Is it working?

He doesn’t need you to commit murder to win the battle.  He just needs you to turn aside, to lose your focus, to disengage from the Lord.

We have the power to defeat Satan at every turn.  Pray according to God’s will, command Satan to remove himself from your life and it will be done.   Does this sound too simple?

It really is that easy.  Seek God and His will for you.  Tell Him what’s going on.  Ask Him to forgive your sins.  Ask Him into your life.  Focus on Him.  Command Satan to get behind you in Jesus’ Holy Name.  Satan must step away from you.

 

Giving God the Best

Oswald Chambers said, “Worship is giving God the best that He has given you. Be careful what you do with the best you have.”
Jesus said, “Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s and unto God that which is God’s.”
John Kennedy said, “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.”
Jesus invites everyone to be a Citizen of His Kingdom. If you are curious about how to become one of His Citizen’s visit us this morning. Service begins at 10:55, but there is always coffee for those of you who would like to come a bit early, meander around and get acquainted!
We are looking forward to meeting you today!
