"And He is the head of the body, the church." (Col. 1:18)

Jesus is the one we come to worship. He is the one we study about, sing about, pray to share, confess to and live for. Why? He is the Head of the body, the church. But who is the church?

The church is the body of baptized believers who've covenanted together to carry out the Master's plan of redemption. The church is the living body who fellowships, feeds on the Word, worships, evangelizes, trains, baptizes and ministers in Jesus' name. The church is the people of God.

Let us remember who Jesus is and who we are. The we can have assurance who the church is and who the Head is. As the church body gathers, I'll see you at the scheduled gathering, with the HEAD.Jesus will encourage us and the Holy Spirit will empower us for our mission.

Love ya!
In Christ,
Brother Terry

"Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it" Proverbs 22:6 NKJV.

Children are our future. If Christ tarries with regard to his second coming, today's youth and children will be left to lead the church and our country. Now, how well they lead will depend much on their training in the home, the school and the church. Are we doing a good job preparing them for their role for Jesus? Where are our children during family altar time? Where are our children during Sunday School and worship time? Please read the verse above again? Our example before them and our training them will make a large impact on them coming to experience Jesus in salvation. Our ways toward them with God's word and example will determine their attitude and ways relating to church work for Jesus.

Dear parents, God will hold you and I responsible for our encouraging them or our discouraging them to attend to the things of God? Is your child a Christian? Can they give testimony in both lip and life to God's saving grace? We are responsible for them before God. Our children (and youth) need us . Let us pray for them. Let us not let them down nor let the Lord down.

Let's get children and youth in our Sunday School, worship and prayer times. Let's pray for them at the family altar and at God's altar!! Then we can claim the promise above!!

".... Having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever" (1Peter
1:23 NKJV)

We are saved by the cross and the power of the resurrection! Amen! But the proclamation and witness of the Holy Spirit in conviction of the sinner's heart is through the word of God! The word of God is alive and cuts and pricks our hearts when delivered taught, preached, read, and welcomed.

Why do we study the Bible on Sunday's, on Wednesday's? Why do we hear sermons from the Bible? Why do we read our Bibles? Is all of this just to gain knowledge? No! No! We are to receive the word of God and then share the word of God to our enemies!

No one can be born again without the word of God! No one can enter heaven without God's word!! We must have received the truth of Christ found in the word of God! Have you been set free from sin? Have you been washed in the blood? Have you been born again? If not, then get to the word of God!! Claim John 3:16!! Claim John 1:12!! Believe the work of Jesus and experience His resurrection power of deliverance!!

Every believer's duty to Christ is to share the word of God! He, Jesus, will hold us accountable on JUDGEMENT DAY! Let go with God's word today! Hungry souls need the WORD today!! Be sure to spend time daily with prayer in God's word! Let's make a difference!!

POEM FOR JUNE

FATHERS ADVICE

The best advice I ever had
Was given to me by my dad;
These occasions being rare,
I listened with the greatest care.

My dad began by telling me
About his life, that I might see
The things he did, both bad and good,
While wondering if I understood.

"Let heart and conscience be your guide;
Be not possessed with foolish pride.
Do the things that you must do,
Ignore what others think of you.

Nor be ashamed of our ideas,
But live them and expel your fears.
Your life is yours and yours alone--
A treasure God has made your own.

If you are wrong but think you're right,
Instinct calls to stand and fight,
But better to surrender pride
And try to see the other side."

These were the words my father told
And I have treasured them as gold:
And somewhere, in a Far-Off land,
My father knows I understand.


WORDS FOR THOUGHT FOR JUNE!

If we have Christ, what more do we need?

The Christians heart is the Holy Spirit home.

For PEACE that lasts, put GOD first!

"But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear Him, and His righteousness unto children's children; to such as keep His covenant, and to those that remember His commandments to do them." Psalm. 103v17 & 18. God will spare America from judgment conditionally. We must obey Him and teach each generation His commands. Yes, Gods' mercy is free, but free to those who'll become free from sin, pride, and rebellion. God's Word and Gods' expectations of man have not changed. Let us pray and warn others of the need to repent and live right in fear before God. Then maybe His mercy will spare us a little longer from His wrath to come. Jesus is our only HOPE!

August "Pastor Commentary"

"I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called . . .” Eph.4: 1. God calls us to salvation. We are then called to serve Him through His visible local body-the church. The characteristics of that serving are found in verses 2 & 3 of Eph. 4. It is a great joy to serve the King of Kings and Lords of Lords! When we carry out His plan for our lives, we have meaning and purpose to true living. We assist others in their faith. We glorify Christ. When we flounder in our service to Christ, we wander in the wilderness, We are not fruitful. So let’s get in God’s Word, Pray and be Faithful Worshiper and Workers in the church. That’s when we’ll find Gods’ best for us! God Bless Until Later Brother Terry

A PERFECT DAY

God stretches out His loving hand
His blessing to bestow,
And guides us in our daily lives
Because He loves us so.

He fills our hearts with joy and peace
We’re always in His care,
He knows our every need and want
And answers every prayer.

He heals all pain and solves all ills
Which often come our ways,
His grace shines down upon us all
To create a perfect day

"Pastor Commentary"

True friends are like diamonds, Precious but rare; false friends are like autumn leaves, found everywhere. "A friend is a person who does his knocking before he enters instead of after he leaves." Friendship is loyal. A real friend is loyal through thick and thin. He will stand by you in the hour of need. He will help you when you are down. He will celebrate with you when you are up. Friendship is . . patience with one's friend when he is right, patience with him even when he is wrong. . . friendship is rankless. Friendship is helpful. Friendships develop among people who strengthen one another. - - Franklin Owen.

Questions: With the above descriptions, how would you rate yourself as a friend with: Jesus? His church? Your neighbors? Your co-workers? Your schoolmates? Your family? The poor? The lonely? The imprisoned? The sick? The lost? The needy? Other brethren?

All of us need friends. And we need to be a friend. Jesus is the best of all friends. Let us serve him, trust him and share him. Trust him today with a full commitment of true repentance and faith. He will save you. You will know it with- out a doubt!

Words ForThought For September!

Happiness is not the GOAL OF LIFE - GODLINESS is!

When we keep our mind on God, God keeps our mind at peace.

To tackle lives problems, trust GOD'S promises.

Salvation is the miracle of moment; growth is the labor of a lifetime.

Each day is a gift from the one who knows exactly what we need.

God always provides what He promises.

We sow the seed, but God brings the Harvest.

We don't know what the future holds, bur we know who holds the future.

What you do with Christ now will determine what he with you later.

A true Christian is a person who is right-side up in upside-down world.

To enjoy the future, accept GOD'S forgiveness for the past.

We are to be channel of God's truth, not reservoirs.

God takes of those who know they can't take care of themselves.

Draw close to Christ produces a growing Christ likeness.

NOW IS THE TIME TO INVEST IN ETERNITY.

FAITH'S VICTORY

Today, Despair came knocking at my door.
I let her in just
For a while.
Her tear-stained face held not one smile,
But when I cried, O Lord, I cannot stand much more,

There came another knocking at my door.
I ran to open it, and there stood Faith outside.
I let her in, and we sat down beside
Despair who quickly said,
I must away,
For I have many more to see today.

And as she left, I felt such
Peace inside.
Today, Despair came knocking at my door,
And for a while I heard her Every word.

But when my anguished heart cried, Help
Me, Lord!
Faith came a -
Knocking at
My door. Her face serene and wise,
Brought peace
And caused my wondering why To cease.

Despair can never stay with Faith
In sight.
Faith penetrates the gloom with heavenly light.
'Tis true, Despair did come to
Visit me,
But Faith came too, and brought
Me victory.

"And it shall come to pass after- ward, that I will pour out my sprit upon all flesh. (Joel 2:28)
Newspapermen went down from London to report at first hand the marvelous happenings of the great Welsh revival at the turn of the century. On their arrival in Wales one of them asked a policeman where the Welsh revival was. Drawing himself to his full height he laid his hand over his heart and proudly proclaimed: "Gentlemen, the Welsh revival is inside this uniform!" He had caught the holy fire. We need revival. But her's the questions, do we want revival? And are we willing to pay the price for revival? II Chorn. 7:14 tells us how. Let us pray, repent, and believe. Then the Lord may visit us when He sees that we are serious with actions that match our words. May revival come our way and soon!

With every leaf that flutters down.

Surrounded by a wealth of gold
And crimson's bright array,
Each child is touched by magic there...

And all too soon the weeks will pass
As autumn slips away,
Yet promise happy memories...

" Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may run swiftly and be glorified, just as it is with you, . . . "(2 Thess. 3:1 NKJV)
I need your prayers. You need my prayers. We need each other's prayers. Praying is a necessary ingredient for power and results with God. All of our efforts in the name of Jesus are fruitless without Gods' anointing. His grace desires to touch us by way of the Holy Spirit. His reviving Spirit of power is anxious to refresh us in the work. But there is cost. We must spend much time in prayer. Prayer fastens the soul to the feet of the Savior. Here we learn to trust, worship, give, obey, praise, learn, gain power, get spiritual insight and know the heart of God. Prayer leads us to Godly repentance, bold confession, and positive response t the commands of Jesus. Genuine prayer blesses the soul and opens the door for God to fulling His purposes for our lives. Joy and all the fruit of the Spirit will come forth as a result of Gods' fill us because of heart surrendered prayer. I shall continue to pray for you. Thank you for praying for me. The future is brightest and the moment is most precious when we are remembering each other in prayer! Let's enjoy the Lord and each other in prayer! Let us glorify His name. God bless you and all of our prayer warriors! Til Later, Love-Brother Terry

WORDS FOR THOUGHT FOR NOVEMBER!

Word well done for Christ will receive a "well done" from Christ.

Spiritual victory comes only to those who are prepared for battle.

The Bible is meant not merely to inform but to transform.

If you live for Jesus you'll have no regrets.

Reading the Bible without meditating on it is like eating without chewing.

It takes a moment to be saved; it takes lifetime to grow in Godliness.

Christ is the only door into heaven.

A parent's greatest responsibility is to point the way to God.

Gratitude to God leads to growth in Godliness.

The God who sends you will also substain you.

Sorrow looks back, worry looks around, but faith looks up.

Because of the cross of Christ, we can become friends of Christ.

Enthusiasm for Christ is contagious; has anyone caught it from you?

THANKSGIVING

By
Will G. Seaman

Perhaps we have not counted
All our blessings one by one;
Perhaps we have not bothered
To remember whence they come;
And maybe we have taken
Just for granted all the things
That the good Lord has created
And the hand of Nature brings:

The autumn hills in glory robed,
A golden field of grain,
A sunset's dazzling splendor or
The Milky Way's great plain,
The starry sky's sublimity,
The ocean's mighty power,
The wonder of creation in
The petal of a flower.

And so if we have failed to show
By word or act or deed
That we are thankful unto Him
Who fills our daily need,
May this day show we're grateful
When we add up all the sum
Of the blessings we remember,
As we count them one by one.
 

 GOD's W.I.T. -- GOD's W.I.T. --  GOD's W.I.T. -- GOD'sW.I.T. -- GOD's W.I.T. -- GOD's W.I.T.

"Pastor Commentary"

"...Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners..." (I Tim. 1:15).

As we prepare to celebrate the joy of Jesus' birth, let us remember His purpose. Jesus came to us in a human body to identify with the human race. Jesus was like man inform, but different in that He was perfect and sinless. He was the only one qualified to die on the cross for our sins.
Because of Jesus'coming, we can find forgiveness, joy, and hope of enternal life. His crucifixtion and resurrection affirm His Messiahship. Truly, this was the Son of God. May this be a Season of Joy for all. Trust Him now and experience the new birth. Then Jesus' birth and life will mean so much more!

God Bless
Until Later
Brother Terry

POEM

O LITTLE TOWN OF BETHLEHEM

O little town of Bethlehem,
How still we see thee lie;
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by.

Yet in thy dark streets shineth
The everlasting light;
The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee tonight.

O holy child of Bethlehem,
Descend to us,we pray;
Cast out our sin and enter in,
Be born in us today.

We hear the Christmas angels
The great glad tidings tell;
O come to us, abide with us -
Our Lord Emmanuel!
