Parson to Person: May 20, 2018

1 Peter 5:6-7 | Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time He may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on Him, because He cares for you.

To cast means to throw it. That means there is SEPARATION from you and your anxieties! If you find you still have them, you tied a string to them so you can have them back any time you run out of something constructive to do! You can’t worry and serve well! Worrying makes it about you instead of Him!

Casting alongside of you,

Pastor Doug

Jeremiah records for us …

Jeremiah 29:10-12

For so says Jehovah, when according to My Word seventy years have been fulfilled for Babylon, I will visit you and confirm My good Word to you, to bring you back to this place. For I know the purposes which I am purposing for you, says Jehovah; purposes of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you shall call on Me, and you shall go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.

God brought Judah home from Babylon and He is bringing Israel home from international dispersion, to the right place at the right time!

He will bring YOU to the right place at the right time … IF you want to go.

Philippians 1:9 | And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment; that ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ

RELATIONSHIPS ARE BUILT ON TRUTH
IF YOU LOVE SOMEONE, TELL THEM THE TRUTH!
YOU CAN’T TURLY SAY YOU LOVE SOMEONE
AND LET THEM GO TO HELL!
THANK YOU JESUS FOR SENDING ME PEOPLE THAT TOLD THE TRUTH!

Proverbs 15:3 | The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.

And HE has a great memory!

A simple decision but hard to do and still the best we have to give should be HIS.

Romans 6:5 | For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of His resurrection:

Romans 6:6 | Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

LORD HELP US!

Luke 19:13 | He called ten of his servants and gave them ten coins. He told them, ‘Invest this money until I come back.’ [ ISV]

Luke 19:13 | And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come. [ KJV ]

However you read it,
it means you better be doing something
with what He gave you while He’s gone!

If you plan on living with total blessing for ever, then Happy Resurrection Day!!!
Resurrect means to stand again!

Revelation 20:6  | Blessed and holy is he that hat part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power

If you plan on taking your chances, that’s ok too. As far as resurrections go there is one for you too! Here it is, you get to stand again!

Revelation 20:12 | And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works,
Revelation 20:13 |And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
Revelation 20:14 |And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
Revelation 20:15 |And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Either way it is your choice!!!

Did you love someone enough last week to share the gospel with them? HE paid the price … we just have to share the good news!

John 3:16 | For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

The term ‘evangelical’ comes from the Greek word euangelion, meaning “the good news” or the “gospel.”

Are you an evangelical Christian/

Love in Christ,

Pastor Doug

Proverbs 18:10 | The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe.

From the Bible Illustrator:
Three principal ways by which God hath discovered Himself to mankind:
1. The visible creation.
2. The written Word.
3. The daily administration of His providence.

Thank GOD for creation, The Word and our Daily Bread!

HE IS TOTALLY DEPENDABLE!

Love in Christ,

Pastor Doug

John 13:8-9 | Peter said to him, “You shall never wash my feet.” Jesus answered him, “If I do not wash you, you have no share with me.” Simon Peter said to him, “Lord, not my feet only but also my hands and my head!” ESV

When people tell me they tried Jesus and IT didn’t work for them – they never extended the whole person, but only the part they wanted relief from!

By the way, IT won’t work for you either!
But HE will!

Love in Christ,
Pastor Doug

I almost complicated it for a second!

James 4:3  |  You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions.
James 4:4 |  You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.

James 4:7 | Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
James 4:8 | Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.

He had it written!

Parson to Person: January 7, 2018

If there was anything wrong with you when you came to the table — HE didn’t see it!

A great analogy!

There is a place in the sea where the light to expose is gone — there rest your sins!

Micah 7:18-19  |  Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of His heritage? He retaineth not His anger for ever, because He delighteth in mercy. He will turn again, He will have compassion upon us; He will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.

Can you say, “outta sight, man!”

Love in Christ,

Pastor Doug
Happy New Year!
