“The Feast of Tabernacles”
"The Feast of Tabernacles" - Looking back at God's call to us at this feast is a call to rejoice and celebrate God's goodness and grace.  As we look ahead to the prophetic fulfillment, we find that God's call to rejoice is a promise of His tabernacling  with us at the fulfillment of all things!

    “Holiness 3”
    Holiness 3--God never commands the impossible, but what He commands He gives us the strength for.  When we do not understand we need to look deeper and realize that God has promised us that He will provide us with everything that we need to follow His Word.

    “Holiness 2”
    “Holiness 2” – Paul showed the Colossian church the truth of living a holy life – it is still applicable for us as well!

    “Holiness”

    “Holiness” – God’s Word is clear – there is a call to be holy.  Our problem comes when we try and do that on our own instead of depending on the Holy Spirit.

    “Justification, Regeneration and Adoption”
    "Justification, Regeneration and Adoption" - All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God; were it not for God's work in our lives we could never know His forgiveness, but through the sacrifice of Christ we can find that forgiveness.  Continuing on our journey of what We Believe!

Caring and Compassion

R. Wayne Willis tells the story of a young student who asked anthropologist Margaret Mead for the earliest sign of civilization in a given culture.  He expected the answer to be a clay pot or perhaps a fish hook or grinding stone.  Her answer was “a healed femur.”  Mead explained that no healed femurs are found where the law of the jungle, survival of the fittest, reigns.  A healed femur shows that someone cared.  Someone had to do that injured person’s hunting and gathering until the leg healed.  The evidence of compassion is the first sign of civilization! 
 
I admit that I find myself wondering at times where civilization has gotten to with the lack of compassion that we find in our society today.  And then I think about what has been happening right here in Lincoln County over the last month, specifically what is going on today in the Houston Texas area because of what has been happening here in Lincoln County and it restores my hope . . . let me explain.

Hold On To Every Moment

I am very much a proponent of making the most of every moment.  I believe that at its best, life is very short and I think we are way, way, way too busy.  I believe that we should make it a point to spend more time with the people that we love.  I believe we should do everything we can to prioritize our lives around people and NOT around work, or hobbies, or activities, or a thousand other things.  People are important, not stuff.  I put a paper aside a long time ago that I came across again today and I wanted to share it with you.  I believe it was written by Erma Bombeck and I hope you’ll read it and think about what it has to say.

NOT What We Can Do

A number of years ago John Henry Jowett told about a small village where an elderly woman died.  She died penniless, uneducated, and unsophisticated, but during her lifetime her selfless service had made a tremendous impact for Christ.  On her tombstone they chiseled the words, “She did what she couldn’t.”  That could be the epitaph for every follower of Christ who will allow Christ to live through us:  HE can do through us what we can never do ourselves.  This, of course, reminds me of the words of the apostle Paul who wrote, “I can do everything through him who gives me strength” (Philippians 4:13).  So, what does that mean to you?  What does that mean to me?  What does that mean in 2017 where we live?

Choice

There was a study done of identical twins awhile back and there was a pair of twin brothers whose lives were quite opposite. One of them was a happily married lawyer with a flourishing practice.  The other was a twice-divorced alcoholic who had gone from job to job all of his life.  The questionnaire they filled out asked, among other things, “What made you the way you are?”  The researchers were amazed that these two men had written identical answers to that question:  “My father’s death when I was ten years old.”
