Message for March 5, 2017 from Pastor Shirley

I have been crucified with Christ [that is, in Him I have shared His crucifixion]; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body I live by faith [by adhering to, relying on, and completely trusting] in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me. Galatians 2:20

One of the hardest things to accept is the truth that “we are”…. not that we shall be but “we are”. “We are now” not in the sweet bye and bye but now. It does not have to do with how much we pray, fast or even how much we attend church.

    The reason people have a hard time accepting who God says they are is because they are trying to base the truth on feelings. Any of us can believe what we can see, feel or hear. Feelings will fail you faith will sustain you when you have it grounded in the Word of God. When it comes to spiritual things we don’t by feelings we walk by faith.

The beloved man of faith, Smith Wigglesworth, once said, “I cannot understand God by feelings, I cannot understand the Lord Jesus Christ by feelings. I can only understand God the Father and Jesus Christ by what the Word says about them. God is everything the Word says He is. We need to get acquainted with Him through the Word.”
