From Our Pastor:

The Beautiful Grace Of God.
"Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:" 2 Peter 1:2 Ė 3

I am simply amazed every time I see Gods grace in my life. Paul said "But by the grace of God I am what I am" 1Cor. 15:10 if I am what God wants me to be then how can I ever complain? God has made me His child, I understand the trials of life, the persecutions of life, even the heart aches of life, but I am a child of the Living God, what else could I want. This is how I see it, even with all the sufferings of life, God chose for me to send His Beloved Son Jesus to this evil world and to suffer death on my part to give to me eternal life. Look at what God said through Peter, "But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man...For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings." Hebrews 2:9 Ė 10 Now give this a little thought, Jesus who created all things, whom is the image of God, who is God, gave His life for me. He came to this world, lived here for about 33 years, and allowed His own creation to crucify Him, to give to me eternal life. God said through Paul that Jesus is "Öthe captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings." Jesus is the Captain of our salvation because of His living and dying for our righteousness. By Captain it means He is also our leader in life, death, and resurrection. We as Christians ought to live our life for the Father, because Jesus did. We need to live in the steps of Jesus, even if life leads us through much tribulations and eventually to death. If God did it, then should we also do it. Listen to Jesus because as a Christianís this should be our pattern in life, "I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me." John 5:30 Jesus came to this world to do the will of His Father, NOT TO DO HIS OWN WILL. Sometimes as Christians, we seek our own will over our Fathers will, this is a no, no. God saved us, Jesus died for us, therefore we belong to God, our personal will in life, our personal desires in life do not matter, only Godís will matter. Jesus was not selfish, He gave His life in a very horrible way because His Father sent Him here to die for our sins. We look at our life and we say that God has brought me to it, and My Father will make sure to walk me through it. God does not ever leave us, and we should never leave the Lord for personal reasons or any other reason. Even if it leads us through the fires of life, Jesus is our Captain, He leads the way, we just need to follow Him, even to death. Godís grace is powerful, and we need to lean on His grace in every trial, tribulation, sickness and even death. Grace, oh how wonderful is Gods grace to us. If it were not for Godís wonderful grace I would still be lost, and hell bound. If it were not for Godís grace I would be naked and without. Godís grace is everything to me, so if God leads me through the fire I will walk through it by His beautiful, marvelous grace. Folks never forget what God told us through Peter, "his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness,". What happens to me is happening because God brought it to me, He chose it for me, and I will suffer it for my Father. I pray that my Father will not ever allow me to put selfís will and desires before His will and desires for me, no matter what. Let us remember the words of John Newton "Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound, That saved a wretch like me....I once was lost but now am found, Was blind, but now, I see. T'was Grace that taught...my heart to fear. And Grace, my fears relieved How precious did that Grace appear...the hour I first believedÖ" Jesus our Captain leads the way lets just follow the captain through life, even if it leads to death, and eventually will.  

Cain, Esau, Saul, Ahab, Judas
By: Curtis Pugh

"Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death." 2 Cor. 7:10

These two kinds of repentance are to be carefully distinguished from each other; though they are often sadly confounded. Cain, Esau, Saul, Ahab, Judas, all repented. But their repentance was the remorse of natural conscience, not the godly sorrow of a broken heart and a contrite spirit. They trembled before God as an angry Judge, but were not melted into contrition before Him as a forgiving Father.

They neither hated their sins nor forsook them.
They neither loved holiness nor sought it.
Cain went out from the presence of the Lord.
Esau plotted Jacob's death.
Saul consulted the witch of Endor.
Ahab put honest Micaiah into prison.
Judas hanged himself.

How different from this forced and false repentance of a reprobate, is the repentance of a child of God; that true repentance for sin, that godly sorrow, that holy mourning which flows from the Spirit's gracious operations! ?

Godly sorrow does not spring from a sense of the wrath of God in a broken law, but from His mercy in a blessed gospel; from a view by faith of the sufferings of Christ in the garden and on the cross; from a manifestation of pardoning love; and is always, attended with self-loathing and self-abhorrence; with deep and unreserved confession of sin and forsaking it; with most hearty, sincere and earnest petitions to be kept from all evil; and a holy longing to live to the praise and glory of God.

The world's trinity?
By Thomas Reade

Everything to which we give the heart, becomes our idol. Pleasure, wealth, and power, form the world's trinity! Before these idols they bow down in adoration.

All their thoughts, time, and talents are employed in their service. No sacrifice is deemed too great to obtain possession of these vanities.
Alas! thousands, who call themselves Christians, who have been baptized in the name of Christ, and who make a nominal profession of Christianity, worship these idols which Satan has set up.
