Word for the day “Our Culture Today”

Matthew 20:34 (NLT) Jesus felt sorry for them and touched their eyes. Instantly they could see! Then they followed him.

Our culture has become enamored with instant results and microwave solutions. E-mail, on-line banking, fast food, instant mashed potatoes,  liposuction, and countless options like them have eroded our capacity for patience and perseverance. So when it comes to spiritual growth, we tend to expect instant transforma­tion rather than viewing our growth in Christ as a long-term-and potentially costly-endeavor. How has our culture affected you?

Yet I’ve learned an important truth that’s been verified time and again by the testimony of Scripture: It’s not how you begin that’s important; it’s how you finish  the journey. Finishing well in our journey in the Lord requires purposeful planning and a clear view of reality on your part. Please understand it won’t happen by acci­dent. It’s time to organize your life in the things of the Lord. Organization is going to be an imperative in this season of your life with the Lord. If you don’t organize your life, you will more than likely miss  the greater blessings God has purposed for your life.

Point to ponder- You have to begin to add in your walk with the Lord, the strategies of the Lord. Our future and the future of our families are tied to us being Aligned to the Lord!

Our Leadership team is especially thankful for those of you who provided financial donations and support in the month of April 2016 by partnering with us in efforts to advance the kingdom of God in this 21st century season: Special thanks to Mr. William Wilson, Mr. Kenneth Washington, Ms. Gertrude Scott,  Mrs. Angela Harrison and Ms. Vanessa Gaskins.
