Church theme


This year our churches theme is Faith. Our pastor has been teaching and preaching on faith. Sometimes we can lack faith because of what we are going through in our lives. But in order to bring revival we must have faith. Faith does change things but we also need to be a vessel and let our faith be shown to others .We also need to have faith in the promises of God and not doubt what he has said. Faith is everything if we lack faith we have nothing.

The worship set the tone for the service.Where there is powerful worship there will be a wonderful word from God. Bro.Emory brought us a very powerful word last night and it was very timely.

Don’t turn back.


Gen 19:26 But his wife, looked back behind him and she became a pillar of salt.

I have always wondered why Lot’s wife turned and looked back towards Sodom and Gomorrah when she was told told not to turn around or she would become a pillar of salt. As she turned around to take one last look that was a sign of disobediece to God. Did she turn because she wanted to go back live amongest the sinners and her friends. Had she become so accustomed to the sin around her the sin in her life that she was scared to leave it behind and start fresh somewhere else. We may never know what caused her to turn back and look. But whatever it was it caused her demise.

When we become christians if we don’t have a soild foundation it may cause us to turn and look back just as Lots wife did. Or if we struggle with a certain sin it also can cause us to look back at our old lifestyle and maybe go back to it. I know there has been a few times that I have wanted to give up but I don’t want to go back to that old lifestyle.Because looking back and wanting something back from your old life can destroy you in so many ways.

Casting a Vision


Pro 29:18 Where there is no vision the people perish,but he that keepth the law happy is he.(KJV)
 
When a church has no vision it will become stale and lose its flavor and begin the slow process of death. There are many churches today that are in this boat that don’t have a vision for the future or they don’t have leaders that give a vision or guidance to their saints. God will always give a vision or a revelation to the man of God in what direction to move.

I believe leaders that cast visions to their local congregations do seek the Lord in this area. Because when you a cast for your church it gives them guidance and also it gives the ministry staff guidance. I do believe that there are pastors that are led by God to cast vision. But also I believe they have to be careful to make sure that it is the will of God and not mans will.

But, sometimes when a vision is cast it may not be for the local level it could be on a global level. I do believe that God does gives some local churches a global vision.  We also must be able to discern between the the two in order to follow Gods will. Because anything out of God will will not be blessed.

But in closing I would like to say that a casting a vision may not work for some churches while in others it works. That would really depend on where that church body is at spiritually and if they are in unity. But also the pastors that do this has to make sure that it lines up with the word of God.
