Wrapped up in Jesus! ✝️

“For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake. For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.”  2 Corinthians 4:5-10

I love this passage of scripture! To sum it up:

It’s not about us, but if you’re a believer your life is wrapped in Jesus’s life!

God’s light is shining out of you. His treasure, of the Holy Spirit, is in our earthen vessels (our body of flesh that just becomes dirt).

Because we’re on His side, the enemy is going to come at us. Plus, we live in a broken world. Life comes at us. It often seems that we are weighed down with pressures of life, attacked by the enemy on every side, and exhausted by the constant barrage.

So what do we do as believers? Look to Jesus. Trust in Him. Let His love and grace be seen in us as we stay faithful to Him.

In the end, Christ is glorified! And that’s what it is all about!

Mark your calendar! 🗓

If Opportunity knocked are we ready?

We have been praying for some time now that God would bless us with a building of our own, and we believe He will do it in His timing and in His way. There is currently a property on the market that would be a tremendous asset to our ministry if the Lord provided it for us. However, a downpayment and the monthly payments for a property like this would be out of our reach at this time.

We should prepare for an opportunity by setting aside money and giving generously to a building fund. Would you ask the Lord what He would lead you to give (above your tithe) to help us prepare for the opportunity when God brings it our way?

God is able, but He expects us to be obedient!


We will be streaming the 10:30 am service LIVE on our Facebook page and on our YouTube channel.

Important stuff 😉:

  • Who are you going to bless this week? "Exhort one another daily" is a great encouragement to us all. It helps us stay close in fellowship and protects us against the attacks of the enemy who wants to divide us.
  • Let us know if you or someone you know has a need.🙏
