"But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judæa, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth."
(Acts 1:8 KJV)
"Our God is an Awesome God. He reigns from Heaven above with wisdom, power and love". Yes, we should feel joy, peace and love because we are Christians and His children. We need to remind ourselves of His wisdom, power, and love sometimes. But we know Heaven is our home forever! We know that if we belong to Jesus Christ we will not escape but will be a Christian forever.
The word Christian means a lot. It means we live forever with Jesus Christ in heaven. It means love and help from Our Awesome God. It means we live in heaven forever with no fighting, no pain, no sorrow, and no disease. We will be happy ruling with Jesus Christ and helping others.
What about others who aren't His children, who don't know about God and His love for us or the salvation and home He offers us? Have we told them about God or even invited them to church? Is our walk with God above reproach? Do we walk, think and talk like God wants us to? Are we thinking about how long forever is in Hell without the peace and love of Jesus Christ?
"The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance." 2 Peter 3:9 KJV
Our Awesome God keeps His promises and is aware of all things that have happened and are going to happen in the future, nothing surprises Him! Christians are children of the most powerful, loving and creating God and King. He knows everything and everyone!
Our Awesome God asks us to tell all people about Jesus Christ not just those we want to. We never know for sure who is saved. We don't always know if they were told clearly about Jesus and His salvation. Regardless, if the non-Christian were told again, or in a different way about God and salvation, might he believe in God and follow Him? Can you take the chance by not telling them about Jesus one more time? Most of all, when you call yourself a Christian, remember what you stand for or represent - Jesus Christ and His world!
LWBC is a loving church who tries to live by Biblical principles while encouraging all its members. We (as a church) want all people in church, worshipping Our Awesome God with faith and obedience every Sunday. If you are not yet a Christian, it is time that you should know and love Our Awesome God as your Creator and Savior. Join us at Living Word Baptist Church as we pray and worship Him this Sunday at 10:30 AM and at 6:00 PM for Bible Study with AWANA for children. On Wednesdays, we meet at 7:00 PM for Prayer Requests, and a Bible Study follows until 8:00 PM. We love visitors!
