    Psalms 23: 6

    6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

    Psalms 27:4

    4 One thing have I desired of the Lord, that I will seek after; that I will dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in His temple.

Accepted or Rejected?


I like the feeling of being accepted when I come into a church, a home or any establishment. It gives me a sense of well-being, that I am valued and cared for. Have you ever been in a place where you had just the opposite feeling?

We can sum that feeling up in one word, rejection. When we have a constant feeling of rejection then we can develop low self-esteem, anger, depression can set in, and even thoughts of doing something bad to yourself. I am so glad to be part of a local church where people are friendly and treat you well even when you are a guest or visitor.

Once there was an unsaved man, named William Baker, and he was praying. He prayed “Lord Jesus, lead me to a church where you would attend”. The Lord led him to an Apostolic Church in Detroit Michigan, located at 21446 Schoolcraft Rd. The New Life Apostolic Church also known as, The Apostolic Church or the Schoolcraft church. The motto of the church reads “The End of Your Search for a Friendly Church”.

Faults to Needs


We have an awesome God!

How Great is our God?

1. He has always been in existence, there is none before Him or after Him; we call Him the Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last.

2. He is sovereign, He does not need to care how others think or feel about Him, He can’t be bought or bribed, He was not voted in and can not be voted out, He is the King of Kings; meaning, the final authority, He has the last word about our life, our condition, our cure and our salvation.

3. He cares, He disciplines or chastens us, out of love for us, He shows this love also by providing, protecting and picking us up when we fall down or fail.

How awesome is our God? He looked beyond our faults and saw our needs.

A chorus to a song says;

I shall forever lift mine eyes to Calvary
To view the cross where Jesus died for me
How marvelous the grace that caught my falling soul
He looked beyond my faults and saw my need.

The Gospel-Good News!


When it comes to church and religion, we as a society have a tendency to make things difficult but, I believe that God wants us to keep things simple. We are only required to hear the gospel, believe the gospel, and, apply the gospel in our lives. That’s pretty simple and that’s good news!

This Sunday we are having our church picnic, and we are also celebrating the repairing of our church parking lot. Because of the gospel we have to put Mark 10:27 into practice;

Jesus after looking at his disciples he told them, with men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.

That’s pretty simple and that’s good news!

Seasons Change


Now as the Summer is coming to an end and we are approaching Fall, it reminds us of how quickly the seasons change. For some there is disappointment, but for those who enjoy cooler temperatures there is an excitement for what the new season can bring. In life we may have to let go of some past things in order to receive what God has awaiting for us in the future. Letting go does not only mean letting go physically, but also mentally, emotionally and, spiritually. In each season of our life there awaits a few struggles, but also many more blessings than we can count, or are even expected.

1 Corinthians 2:9 says, But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

The verse is speaking of the good things that come from God to us.

Use Your Words


God has given us the ability to use words to communicate our ideas and emotions. We should use our words carefully because words are powerful. We can use words to tear down or to build up, to help or to hurt, to condemn or to comfort and encourage. The spoken word is so powerful that in,

Proverbs 18:21 it says “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof”.

Every opportunity we get we must use our ability of the spoken word to speak life into someone’s present circumstances and into their future.

Unique Me to Worship Him


As I meet people it amazes me how unique each of us are. We have differences in our speech, personality and physical appearances. Each of us have our own way of interacting with the world around us and we handle circumstances in different ways. There are no two people exactly alike in every way, even identical twins.

Church is a place where different people, from different walks of life, come together to look to one Savior, Jesus Christ, and to worship Him. He died for all of us that we might be set free from our sins. When we come to Christ, we are not required to stop being different but, only to come on one accord in our faith and doctrine.

Revelation 7:9 (NIV) says, after this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands.

It is great to be different and even greater to be in Christ.

Time Enough


Have you ever thought about time? Either you have too much of it and you are bored or you can’t seem to get enough of it and find yourself stressed out. You can lose time, find time, waste time, give your time away, and have time on your hands. Did you know that time was created by God for us here on earth?

In Genesis 8:22 it says, while the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.

In Heaven there is no time, also in Hell time does not exist, both are eternal. The blessing of having time on earth is if we are going in the wrong direction spiritually, we have time to change our mind and do what is right.

Moses said to the people in Deuteronomy 30:19 This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live.

The peculiar thing about the time we have on earth is that no one knows how much of it you have until it is gone. Choose Life, before it is too late.

Live and be a blessing!
