Sunday's Message
October 7, 2018

FOLLOW JESUS INTO SELF DENIAL

Nancie and I recently returned from L.A.  We went to the Broad Museum which has some of the world’s greatest works by modern artists.  There is a huge painting called, “Deutschlands Geistesheldon” by Anselm Keifer.  It causes the viewer to stand in a large hall evocative of a hunting lodge where Nazis kept stolen paintings during World War II.  The names of great German artists are written on the painting, artists who encouraged the view of Aryan supremacy.  To me the hall looked like the place where Holocaust victims were taken.  Keifer was commenting on the tragedy of racism.

Racism comes from selfishness.  Every sin comes from selfishness.  Our nation seems to be drowning in selfishness.  It’s swamping families, schools, workplaces, communities and churches. 

This Sunday I’m preaching on “Follow Jesus into Self Denial” from Luke 9:23-27.  Jesus has a simple solution for selfishness.  Die to self.  How do we do that?  Forget about self and focus on God and others.  Why?  So God can be happy, we can be happy and so we can make others happy through God’s power.  Only Satan benefits when we’re selfish.  Please come Sunday and help us forget about ourselves.

Also, men, don’t forget our Men’s Prayer Breakfast this Saturday, October 6, at 7:00.  We’ll have great food and fellowship and a wonderful devotion by Ed Stewart.  I’ll lead in the prayer time and Ron Holmes will lead in singing.

With love in Christ,
Dr. Jim Meek

Youth Ministry Update

LET GO AND LET GOD

“Give careful thought to your ways” (Haggai 1:7)

What God preserved of Haggai’s preaching is contained within two chapters, about a page and a half total, and yet his challenge to his generation is still poignant to God’s people today.  Haggai’s messages can be summed up in four questions:

  1. Are we so worried about our own wellbeing that we are neglecting the things of God?
  2. Are we tainting our work for Him by the impurity within our lives?
  3. Are we so concerned with our present conditions or abilities that we are unable to trust in God’s promised blessings?
  4. Are we able to wait for God to enact is final justice?

What we do and why we do it matter.  If we choose ourselves over God with our answers to any of the above questions, then we are just as the Israelites of Haggai’s day, and we haven’t learned more than they.  They returned to Israel from the Babylonian exile with the thought that they were about to enter God’s eternal promise of a messianic king and a restored temple, and yet, we know from biblical accounts alone that only five hundred years later, Jesus would be born into a captive Israel.  Far from the eternal kingdom that would be a blessing to all nations, Israel was dominated by Rome and actively hunted any challenge to their earthly power.  God’s own people, the people who had studied His word and knew Him best, rejected Him.  As we examine ourselves, we can either continue Israel’s cycle of rebellion, or we can choose Jesus.  We can “let go and let God” and be welcomed as a sheep of the flock, a joint heir with Jesus.  What a savior we have in Jesus, Amen.

Upcoming Lessons:

  • Sunday 10/7
    • Luke 13:18-30: Yeast, Mustard Seeds, and Doors… Oh, my!
    • PDYM Part 1:  Purpose Statements for Dummies
  • Wednesday 10/10: The Book of Zechariah: Are you ready to be part of God’s Kingdom?

Event Updates:

  • Ignition: December 26-30
    • First payment due by 9/30.

Prayer Requests:

  • Student Work Scholarship: We need work to do.  Please pray that people would be moved to assist our students in raising the money for Ignition.
     
  • Gratitude: I am not very good at expressing gratitude beyond those in front of me.  Please pray for me that I can be more appreciative of those who help from afar.  Our ministry would not exist were it not for God’s blessing through His church.

Greg Horton
Youth Director

 

WOULD YOU BE WILLING TO IMPACT THE LIFE OF ONE STUDENT?

Become involved in the STUDENT WORK SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM.

This program is designed to be an opportunity for our students to earn donations toward their entry to large youth events. This is an opportunity for students to learn to manage their money properly and budget towards large goals.

How this program works:

1) Fill out a Student Work Scholarship Submission Form (online form) and turn it into the church office attention, Greg Horton, either by putting it in the offering plate on Sunday or handing it to Greg in person.

2) All submissions will be reviewed by the youth leader and put on the submission board in the youth room.

3) Students will select which jobs they are willing to take on and will work with their parents to fulfill the request.

4) Once the job is done, the student or parents will collect the agreed upon amount. Please do not write a check to the church or to the youth ministry, but rather the student who did the work.

5) If the job is not taken within the period of a month, or before the due date, for any reason, the youth leader will contact the affected party.

Thank you,

Greg Horton
Youth Director
