Mother’s Day 2012

Where would we be without our mothers? I know that seems like an obvious question, but it’s one that is worth pondering again and again.

Mother’s Day is this Sunday, and we want to celebrate our moms the right way.

  • All of the songs our worship team will be leading have been selected by moms in our church
  • We’ll have a special message about the value of mothers
  • And there is a special gift for every mom in attendance on Sunday morning

“I learned more about Christianity from my mother than from all the theologians in England.” —John Wesley

How true this is! So it’s time to celebrate our moms. Join us this Sunday at 10:30am.

God Is For You!

I cross paths with far too many people who think God is unapproachable, distant, or—perhaps worst of all—angry with them.

But listen to this good news: God is for you! 

God created you to be in relationship with Him.

When Paul writes in Romans 8:31, “If God is for us, who can be against us,” it’s not a wondering, uncertain “if” (as in, “I wonder if this is true?”). No! What Paul is saying is, “If you already know that God is for you, why are you wondering about who or what is against you?”

Here are the facts (all from Romans 8):

  • The Holy Spirit is interceding for you (vv. 26, 27)
  • God is working out all things for your good (v. 28)
  • God justifies you (vv. 30, 33)
  • God will give you everything He gave Jesus (v. 32)
  • Jesus is interceding for you (v. 34)
  • Nothing and no one can ever separate you from God’s love (vv. 35-39)

Let me state it again—

God is for you!

Nothing can stand between you and God!
