Don't Reject God

John 15:13 

No one had greater love than to lay down his own life for his friends. 

Reject- To dismiss, fail, failure to meet one standards or satisfy ones taste.  

Many times in life we are hurt or let down by the ones that are supposed to love us the most. Many of us have even been church hurt. This causes us to be bitter, angry. We turn away from God because we blame him for the hurt. How can God stand by and allow so much pain to come to us. How can God take someone so special away from us. The truth is, God loves us. He allows us to go through what we go through so that we can experience something much better. Something much greater. God loves us! He loves us so much that he gave his son for our sins.   Don't reject God. Give yourself to God. He wants your love. He wants you to experience his glory. Our God is awesome. Let God make you new. Go to God, let his word comfort and console you.   Don't Reject God.

Perseverance and Prayer

perseverance- Steadfastness in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success.  

Prayer- A solemn request for help or expression of thanks addressed to God or an object of worship. 

Psalm 121: 1-2  

I will lift my eyes to the hills, from where shall my help come?    (2) My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

 Everyday as we wake, thank the Lord because he has blessed you to see another beautiful day which he has created for us to see. Even if the day does not turn out to be as you want it to be, thank God because he gave you another day when he did not have to. We need to pray to God.  There is answers when believing in prayer. Whatever problems you have or whatever you are going through, give it to God. Put on the armour he has given us to face the new day; the shield of faith, faith that God is with you and will never leave your side, the helmet of salvation, salvation no matter how great the journey; God will bring you through, and the Sword of the spirit, the word of God. The sword of spirit is our greatest tool!!!!!! Carry it and use it proudly because our father loves us and wants to save us all. Go to battle. Claim your victory with the word of God. Yes we may fall but we will not crumble. Get back up and brush yourself off. Speak boldly and courageously, let the devil know that he will not win today or any other day. 

Pastor and First lady Simmons, we want to wish you both a very special, blessed and  beautiful 30 year Anniversary and many more to come.  We love you!

The Word and Prayer Works

Psalm 119: 11,105

Your word I have treasured and stored in my heart, that I may not sin against you. 

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. 

  In life we try to hard to change others. Is that we were put here for? Will changing people make you a better person? Look in the mirror  and start there! Ask God to work on you, clean you up inside, change you. Watch the lord work. In doing so he change the very atmosphere in which you exist. God is able !!! It is written and so it is. "He will do all that he says he will do."   There is power in the word and in prayer. There is no perfect or right way to pray, God just wants you to communicate with him. Talk to him. In your darkest hour, don't give up. Keep holding on and watch the Lord work.    Stop! Listen!  Recognize that the Lord is already here.

Don’t Reject What God has Given to Us

Meditate on the scripture below and receive your revelation. Pastor J

Luke 10:3–11 (NKJV): Go your way; behold, I send you out as lambs among wolves. 4 Carry neither money bag, knapsack, nor sandals; and greet no one along the road. 5 But whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace to this house.’ 6 And if a son of peace is there, your peace will rest on it; if not, it will return to you. 7 And remain in the same house, eating and drinking such things as they give, for the laborer is worthy of his wages. Do not go from house to house. 8 Whatever city you enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you. 9 And heal the sick there, and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’ 10 But whatever city you enter, and they do not receive you, go out into its streets and say, 11 ‘The very dust of your city which clings to us we wipe off The very dust of your city which clings to us we wipe off against you. Nevertheless know this, that the kingdom of God has come near you.’ 12 But I say to you that it will be more tolerable in that Day for Sodom than for that city.

Don't Be Clueless

Clueless- is having No knowledge, understanding or ability. 

Don't be clueless in your surroundings. The Lord is all around you. He is in everything that you do and everywhere that you go.   James 4:7   says; submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.      

There are many times in life that when the going gets tough we tuck tail and run. God wants you to hold steadfast to your faith in him. He will not leave you, even in your darkest hour. God will not lead you into temptation, but deliver you from evil;  Matthew 6:13.     

Stay focused. Find your purpose.  God gave us all a purpose, we need only to have the desire to seek the Lord to find our purpose.  Be existant in your life. Stand up and be counted. God gave you the greatest gift that one could receive,  he gave you life and the will in the palms of your hands to live it.

I thank you Father God for the life that you have given me. Amen.

IMG_0693.JPG

Congratulations Steven

Congratulations Steven. You're a high school graduate. Keep up the hard work young man. As you pursue other goals, please remember you have God, your parents and your ROL family to lean on.

  The graduate and his proud parents!

The graduate and his proud parents!

  You did it!

You did it!

Philippians 4:13 (KJV)

"I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me".

The Lord Is

PSALM 27: 1 -14 (1-2)

1: The lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? 

2: The lord is the refuge and fortress of my life; whom shall I dread? 

When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh my adversaries and my enemies, they stumbled and fell. 

Life enemies- seek to destroy you through morals/values, spirituality, family and love. 

Salvation- preservation or deliverance from harm, ruin, or loss. 

Seek the lord and he shall be your salvation.  Find salvation through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Jesus Christ. The lord is our light in darkness. God has anointed your path you need only take it. Will you seek the lord or will you continue to live in darkness? 

 Sister Ella.

 

Pursue Peace

Hebrews 12:14 (NKJV):  Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord.

Peace is what the earth needs to pursue. We pursue fame, fortune, and ungodly entertainment that corrupts the spirit. Real peace that comes from God will bring calmness to the storms of life and holiness to the soul. So I recommend that all men pursue peace and holiness for it will be good to the soul.

Unintended Blessings

Mark 5: 22-42

We talk a lot about  the lady with the issue of blood. But did you know God was on his way to bless someone else when she got blessed? His name was Jarius and his 12 year old daughter was ill. Jesus ended up healing 2 people but he was only on his way to heal 1 person.

 Today, Jesus is walking by.  Receive your unintended blessings.

  

Vision

IMG_0690.JPG

The scripture declares in Habakkuk 2:2–3 (NKJV): write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

A vision is a road map to where you see yourself in the future. When one has a vision, he/she will develop a plan for resources to accomplish the plan.  

Vision will cause one’s life to have purpose. Without a vision the people will perish. Are you tired of having a boring life? If so, get a vision or help someone else with their vision and you will have purpose in your life.  

Remember, life becomes blurry without a vision.
