Sunday Words of Encouragement July 27, 2014

This was an interesting morning of messages. Sunday school, praise and worship songs and Pastors message were all consistent on a theme. Our Sunday school teacher shared a video of a sermon by David Platt. ‘We don't respond to God’s radical call because it's easy, but because He is worthy of our trust, our plans and dreams, and our affections.’ We need to recognize the true power of God/Jesus and not make Him a washed out version that fits our self-centered needs. He is majestic and all sufficient. He is enough. We need to trust Him with our lives.

Pastor’s message was on The Power of God. He told of a jewelry sales clerk who rebuked a would be thief by demanding that he leave 'in the name of Jesus'. We have faith but does our unbelief or our lack of trust block our way of receiving all His promises, all the blessings He has for us? Do we look at our circumstances and rely on our own resources instead of looking at His power and relying on His promises? If we say we believe Him then we need to trust Him with our lives.
Romans 4:20-24; Hebrews 3:12- 14 (and see through 19); Mark 4: 19, 22-24 and Matthew 13: 11-15, 58.

I was looking for a video with our choir song but didn't find one.
Instead I found this which I think fits well with the message today.

Verses for Today:
Hebrews 3:12- 14  (NIV)
12 See to it, brothers and sisters, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God. 13 But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,” so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness. 14 We have come to share in Christ, if indeed we hold our original conviction firmly to the very end.

I have faith, Lord; help thou my unbelief and make me obedient, at all times and in all things, to Your will.
