Church Briefs

(Continued)

We need to show love for others, that we are Spirit Led. Ephesians 3:20 (NLT) “Now all glory to God, who is able, thought His mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” Jesus knows we need power to live and make courageous choices. He sent the Holy Spirit to inhabit the lives of true believers for the purpose of empowering us, guiding us, and teaching us how to live for God.”

We are Heaven Bound, Philippians 3:20-21. But our citizenship is in heaven, And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables Him to bring everything under His control , will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like His glorious body”. As Bill Kemp and Diana Kerner Arnett state: “Hope lives even when the body is dying”.

Please join us at PCCC this 2014 and learn how we, as a body of Christ can call upon those who need Jesus in their lives. God bless you and pray to see you soon.

First Baptist Church

The opening line for a song that came out in the late 1960s says, “One is the loneliest that you’ll ever do.” The song is about how the person felt when someone he loved left his life. None of us wants to be completely alone. Sociologists and psychologists say that even the most introverted person needs to be around another person sometimes. But there is a time when “one” does not indicate being alone. You can read in the Bible how Jesus prayed that His followers would be one. That means a large group of people living and functioning as one, and loneliness not being part of the equation.

That’s not how it often happens, though. Christians often are divided and people become lonely as a result. What can we do to help the situation and become more one as Jesus prayed? Come to First Baptist Church this Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m. and join us as we look deeper into this important topic. See you then.
