To the Glory of God

To God be the GloryOne thing I asked of the Lord,
    that will I seek after:
to live in the house of the Lord
    all the days of my life,
to behold the beauty of the Lord,
    and to inquire in his temple.

Psalms 27:4

God Will Forgive Your Sins

forgivenss handIf you confess your sins, God who is faithful and just, will forgive your sins.
Pray this prayer of confession right now:

Lord, I have sinned, without considering how much you love me.
You see my sins more clearly than I can me them myself. Lord, you know when I am indifferent to your Word, the Bible.
You see how often I forget to pray and how often I come to unwillingly to worship.
And yet, I turn to you in times of trouble.
Lord, you know when I am untruthful and when I think evil of others. You see my anger and unfairness to my friends.
You know how hard it is for me to forgive.
Please forgive me and make me clean so that I can obey your call to take up your cross and follow you.
In the name of Jesus Christ, your only Son, my Lord and Savior, I pray for forgiveness. Amen.

What God Requires

What does the Lord require of me?
The Lord requires us to do justice, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with God.

“With what shall I come before the Lord,
   and bow myself before God on high?
Shall I come before him with burnt offerings,
   with calves a year old?
Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams,
with ten thousands of rivers of oil?
Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression,
   the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?”
He has told you, O mortal, what is good;
   and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
   and to walk humbly with your God?

Micah 6: 6-8

Justice means to do what is right, to walk even as Christ walked when He lived here on earth; to that which is honest and fair.
To love mercy means to have the ability to have compassion or forgiveness; to be able to show it toward someone who may not deserve it.
To walk humbly with God means to live in obedience to His commands and to have communion with Him; to allow God to know you; to be a servant to both God and man, putting others first.
-Pastor Tom Flander

Healing Can Begin Today….

healing

See to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God; that no root of bitterness springs up and causes trouble, and through it many become defiled. Hebrews 12: 15

The way to begin healing is to know that God’s mercies are new each day. Don’t let yesterday’s hurts cause bitterness. Receive the grace of God. Be blessed. You will find joy in God with His people once again Come.
