Message for June 20, 2021 from Pastor Shirley

Spiritual CPR: Continued – Prayer – Rescue                                    
    Being born physically does not make one  alive spiritually.  In Ephesians 2:1 Paul wrote that we all start out spiritually dead in our sins. He took our sin-dead lives and made us alive in Christ. (NIV)  And you [He made alive], when you were dead (slain) by [your] trespasses and sins. (GNT)  God is the one who makes us alive when we come to Him through faith in Christ.  Those who are born again now have the ability to love others with spiritually alive hearts. 
    We are called to breathe life into those who need  to be rescued. This is called love in action.  Rescue means –to free from confinement, danger, evil, deliver a person.  Not just those who have not accepted Jesus Christ as Savior.  But also to those who are born again. To those who have become discouraged, lost hope, need healing, need encouragement or  who are in need of deliverance from an addiction.
    Who do you know today that needs Spiritual CPR? Someone who may need Jesus-praying for them-loving them to salvation.  Do you see a fellow brother or sister struggling?  Breathe on them…
