***Can't wait for the Lord's Day! This Sunday, Pastor Brooks is doing triple duty AGAIN: Pray God will give him strength! 10am Bible study; Sunday 11am & 6pm; He gives his all, he is VERY busy; it isn't easy; it takes A LOT of time in study, preparation, to make sure he is ready, to preach the Word, but God is with him; he is touching hearts; it would really encourage him to have YOU come; it will be a very special time; more so IF you come! Let's set a record; have our best group yet! Invite family/friends; the journey WITH God is an amazing 1; you can't change the past, but you can make sure, from this point on, God will be 1st! Make this year the BEST ever! It can be; it will be, if you include God! Many excuses are given to miss church; let's make this Sun am & pm NO EXCUSE SUNDAY! If you come, you will be blessed; God will work mightily in your heart!
**Someone put it this way: let's say you have a 1 million dollar$/year job, and the higherups tell you: if you miss 1 more day, you will lose your job; how many excuses would be used? No doubt, close to ZERO! So use the same excuse (which is ZERO), to miss church Sun am AND PM; start attending church; EVERY Sunday/EVERY service/EVERY time the church doors are open, even Prayer meeting, make a pledge with God that you will be in church! NOTHING will keep you from coming! The exciting, Christian life starts/continues THIS Sunday!
Jesus deals w/each person’s needs differently. Mary simply needed to hear Jesus’ voice and her grief was healed. The disciples needed to experience the presence of Jesus, and receive His peace to release them from fear. Thomas needed to touch the Risen Christ. He felt he needed to put his hand in Jesus’ side before he would believe. Each of us has different needs; there is only one solution – a touch from the risen Lord!
Consider the impact of Jesus on history. Socrates taught for 40 years, Plato for 50, Aristotle for 40, and Jesus for only 3; yet the influence of Christ’s 3 year ministry is greater than the impact left by the combined 130 years of teaching from these men who were among the greatest philosophers of all time. Jesus painted no pictures; yet, some of the finest paintings of Raphael, Michelangelo and Leonardo DA Vinci received their inspiration from Him. Jesus wrote no poetry; but Dante, Milton, and scores of the world’s greatest poets were inspired by Him. Jesus composed no music; still Haydn, Handel, Beethoven, Bach, and Mendelssohn reached their highest perfection of melody in the music they composed in His praise. Every sphere of human greatness has been enriched by Jesus Christ.” As the centuries pass, the evidence is accumulating, that, measured by His effect on history; Jesus is the greatest genius and the most influential life, who ever lived! No one else holds or has held the place in the heart of the world which Jesus holds!
Napoleon Bonaparte: “I know men; and I tell you Jesus Christ is no mere man. Between Him and every person in the world there is no possible term of comparison. Alexander, Caesar, Charlemagne, and I have founded empires. But on what did we rest the creations of our genius? On force. Jesus Christ founded His empire on love; and at this hour millions of men would die for him.”
