Repair / Rebuild / Reinforce
DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME!!
Set your clocks back an hour on Saturday October 31st before bed.
A Note from Pastor Jerry and Debb!
Good Thursday to you!
End of Daylight saving's - SUNDAY, NOV. 1st. - SET YOU CLOCKS 1 HR BACK before bed. Just think, you get an extra hr. of sleep Saturday night!
God IS rebuilding His Church! As we wrap our minds around the realities of new human behaviors, we'll find fresh ways of being the Church. The "what" & "how" of the things we do might look and feel different from this time last year, but the "why" will never change! NHCC exists to help people find their way [back] to God! That being said, we want to see the lost, found in Jesus, and become His disciples!
We're at an amazing place in time. We've been given a unique pause/opportunity, because of the "pandemic," to define who we are and what we're about. When the trappings of program are stripped away due to forces beyond our control, the important rises above the urgent, and reveals the core of who we are. What we came to think "Church" was, is being challenged. Not a bad thing. Maybe even a good thing. The Lord has allowed a shaking of our "church world" so we can see more clearly again what He desires, what His Church is to be about in this world. The pandemic has been given the power to identify our idols and false purposes of "our" churches. He is rebuilding His Church and wants us to hunger and thirst for the righteousness of His plans and His Kingdom.
"But first and most importantly seek (aim at, strive after) His Kingdom and His righteousness [His way of doing and being right--the attitude and charactor of God] , and all these things will be given to you also." Matt 6:33 (AMP)
Last Sunday we looked at 6 steps to keeping your (Spiritual) walls solid. Keeping those walls strong is the setup for greater things to come. Get the walls back up and get 'em reinforced in order to handle the battles that are ahead! The Enemy is taking advantage of the weakness of peoples' convictions, drawing the Lord's elect from walking boldly in His Spirit. We haven't even come close to seeing the end of the challenges to our faith. In the Last Days, the followers of Jesus will ever increasingly be challenged by the Enemy. [2 Tim. 3] God's Word says that even some will fall away [Heb. 6 / 2 Thes. 2], even from among those we wouldn't expect.
Much of what the Lord is rebuilding is truly foundational. I am asking questions like, "What is 'Salvation?'" "What is the true Gospel?" "Have we created a false gospel?" "What happens when we seek the wrong thing, even if our intentions were good?" Getting these things right, well, it's the difference between staying on the narrow path that leads to life... or ending up in the ditch!
Rebuilding, reinforcing are importnat, but being certain of a true foundation is essential. Let's get these stones set and secured so we can know we have a firm foundation and know that what we're rebuilding is what He has determined to be of greatest importance.
Are you with me?
Blessings to you~
