Message for March 17, 2019 from Pastor Shirley

   If we have accepted Jesus Christ as our Savior our final destination is Heaven.  But we are not just saved to make Heaven our eternal destination. I believed God wants us to enjoy the ride while we are on our way.  While on this journey we are called to live a life by faith.  Scripture tells us in Romans 1:17  “For in the Gospel a righteousness which God ascribes is revealed, both springing from faith and leading to faith [disclosed through the way of faith that arouses to more faith]. As it is written, The man who through faith is just and upright shall live and shall live by faith”.

     Not just a faith but by unwavering faith, an unmovable faith, a focused faith.  Faith that is unmovable, focused, and unwavering is a faith that is fully persuaded.  What does fully persuaded faith look like. When you are fully persuaded you believe God will do what He said He would do, no matter how long it takes.  When you are fully persuaded you are not moved by what you see. When you are fully persuaded you don’t allow what you see to change what you say. Those who are fully persuaded have faith and patience that they will obtain the promises of God.

     So don’t allow your hearts to grow dull or lose your enthusiasm, but follow the example of those who fully received what God has promised because of their strong faith and patient endurance.  Hebrews 6:12
