BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY AUGUST 13, 2017

We welcome you today with opened hearts and hands. May you be blessed as you worship with us.

A team of archaeologists may have located the home of three of Jesus’ disciples. It was found in a lost Roman imperial city off of the Sea of Galilee. Researchers from Kinneret College believe they have found the Roman city of Julias, which was built as part of the town of Bethsaida. This is identified in John 1:44 as the hometown of Philip, Andrew, and Peter. The team of archaeologists said that the multi-layered site discovered on the northern shore of the Sea of Galilee, in the Bethsaida Valley Nature Reserve, is the exact location according to a report in the Israeli news paper- Haaretz, last Sunday.

The report states that the key discovery is that of an advanced Roman-style bathhouse. This fact, according to the paper, indicates that a city was definitely there and not just a fishing village. The excavators found walls with gilded glass tesserae for a mosaic, an indication of a wealthy and important church. Kinneret College said in a statement that it is widely believed that a church used to be on the former site of the Apostles’ home, thus adding evidence that the recent find is legitimate. “The discovery of dozens of golden glass mosaics in the previous season and the present season attests to the fact that the church was an important and magnificent place,” stated the college. “A Christian traveler of the eighth century CE notes that in the house of Tsaida the church is in honor of Peter and Andrew — two of Jesus’ apostles.”

This is not the first major find by researchers connected to Kinneret College regarding the New Testament. Last August, researchers under Motti Aviam found a first century synagogue near Mount Tabor. This is the first synagogue discovered in the rural part of the Galilee and it confirms historical information about the New Testament, which says that Jesus preached at synagogues in Galilean villages.

We thank God for these archeological discoveries that are confirming scripture. Let us pray that persons who do not know Jesus will be convinced about the truth of God’s Word upon hearing about them.

To Do List From God

I ran my life in search of worldly things;
My time and will were firmly in control.
I thought I had no need for what God brings;
I gave no heed to murmurs from my soul.
“You’re planning, doing all the time,” it said,
“But something else is missing deep inside.
Your mind is whirling, but your heart is dead,
So turn to God and let go of your pride.”

I did, and God said, “Here’s My plan for you:
Give your life to Me, and just let go.
Have faith and pray, and read the Bible through,
And you’ll have blessings more than you can know.”

So simple, yet it brings me perfect peace,
Living life for God the way I should.
Direction, purpose, fullness and release—
Life with God is very, very good.

-By Joanna Fuchs
The Christian poem above, To Do List From God, is a Christian verse that focuses on how much better and more peaceful life is when we move away from worldly things and closer to Jesus. Christian poems often talk about the transition to Christianity. This poem for Christians is for those who remember what their lives were like before being saved. To Do List from God is a Christian poem about Christians, also a Christian rhyme, that reveals how the stresses of the world and our need to plan and control things can make life difficult. When we turn it all over to God, life becomes so much more peaceful and satisfying, as this Christian poem says.

OVERCOMER: Living a Life of Victory!

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY AUGUST 06, 2017

Welcome to Frenchtown Evangelistic Assembly worship service. May you be blessed as you worship today.

Two Christian pro-life teenagers have recently won a settlement against their school district. The teenagers were harassed by their gay Pennsylvania public school vice principal, Zach Ruff, when they were protesting abortion outside their school on a public sidewalk. Ruff confronted the teens angrily and tried to shield the other students from seeing the protest as they were leaving school on April 21. Conner and Lauren Hanes who are brothers said they were trying to expose the negative impact of abortion which has claimed the lives of 60 million unborn babies since the procedure became legal in 1973.

According to the Alliance Defending Freedom, the Downingtown Area School District came to a settlement and has agreed to clarify its policies to assure that the public sidewalks surrounding the district’s schools are open to those wanting to use their First Amendment rights to publicly demonstrate, even if what they are demonstrating is at odds with school officials’ political views.

In a video posted to YouTube, the siblings told the administrator they are simply trying to expose “the holocaust that’s happening in America.” Ruff responded by stating that there is “no Halocaust happening in America.” Conner Haines then told Ruff that “these [unborn children] are the people that are being murdered,” adding, “these are image bearers of God.” Ruff replied, “They are not children they are cells.”

Despite the trend of young people to gravitate toward the worldly beliefs and ideologies, it is heart-warming to note that there are still many teenagers who are embracing the knowledge of the true God and are willing to take their stand for Him publicly. God told Jeremiah, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; and before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations” (Jer. 1:5). God bless the two young men and may they have an ever growing influence on other young people for God.

Received–Not Earned

What if prospective parents approached an adoption agency with these questions?

We just have a question or two before we come in and sign the adoption papers. Will he be a good child? Healthy always? Oh, and can he fix his own meals? Do his own laundry?
Can you imagine prospective parents saying that? No adoption agency would put up with it. They’d respond with Wait a minute. You don’t understand. You don’t adopt this child because of what he has; you adopt him because of what he needs. He needs a home.

The same is true with God. John 3:17 says,
“For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”

He doesn’t adopt us because of what we have. He doesn’t give us His name because of our intelligence, or our wallet or good attitude. Adoption is something we receive —not something we earn!

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY JULY 30, 2017

We give God praise and thanks for our gathering together again in His name. May He be glorified by us today!

A new study out of Switzerland shows that people who are generous and focus on helping others are happier than those who act on their own self-interests. Philippe Tobler and Ernst Fehr from the Department of Economics at the University of Zurich, along with a team of international researchers, conducted an experiment with 50 people in a lab. The team sought to investigate how areas of the brain communicate to produce feelings of happiness.

The study’s participants were promised 25 Swiss francs a week for four weeks. Twenty-five of them were asked to spend the money on others; the other 25 were told they could spend it on themselves. The participants consistently reported that giving made them feel good. MRI scans of their brains were done simultaneously and showed that one area of the brain triggers a response in another area that is related to happiness.

“Generosity and happiness improve individual well-being and can facilitate societal success,” they said. “However, in everyday life, people underestimate the link between generosity and happiness and therefore overlook the benefits of … spending” on others, they continued. Christian Smith, a University of Notre Dame sociologist and Hilary Davidson, note in the book, The Paradox of Generosity: Giving We Receive, Grasping We Lose, that generosity has a positive effect on the brain and a lack of generosity can have a negative effect. Smith cited a study showing that stingy people have been shown to secrete more cortisol in the brain, a stress hormone that is known for creating “wear and tear” on the body.

Once again the Bible has been proved to be true. “The liberal soul shall be made fat, and he that watereth shall be watered also himself” (Proverbs 11:25). “…It is more blessed to give than to receive” (Acts 20:25). Let us open our hearts and hands to those around us whenever the opportunity arises and keep on giving!

Fruit Of The Spirit

Part 2: Fruit of the Spirit – Visible Growth in Jesus Christ

Longsuffering (patience) — We are “strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness” (Colossians 1:11). “With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love” (Ephesians 4:2).

Gentleness (kindness) — We should live “in purity, understanding, patience and kindness; in the Holy Spirit and in sincere love; in truthful speech and in the power of God; with weapons of righteousness in the right hand and in the left” (2 Corinthians 6:6-7).

Goodness – “Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfill all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power” (2 Thessalonians 1:11). “For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth” (Ephesians 5:9).

Faith (faithfulness) – “O Lord, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things; thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth” (Isaiah 25:1). “I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith” (Ephesians 3:16-17).

Meekness – “Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted” (Galatians 6:1). “With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love” (Ephesians 4:2).

Temperance (self-control) – “But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love” (2 Peter 1:5-7).
Fruit of the Spirit – A Devotional for All Christians

The fruit of the Spirit is a wonderful study for Christians at any level of spiritual maturity. We hope this website provides a thought-provoking devotional and a springboard for growth.

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY JULY 23, 2017

Praise the Lord! We are happy to be together again, we give God praise and thanks for another Sunday to come together for corporate worship.

The Bible teaches us that all people were meant to have friendship with God. It began that way, but ever since Adam and Eve, man has fought against that relationship. Instead of living in peace with God and each other, we find conflict and disagreement… or worse!

Man has a habit of living for himself. We often ignore God and pursue our own plans. Our selfish choices do not bring us life. In fact, they earn us a death sentence. God understands that mankind battles with sin. He understands that we are frustrated with how things turn out. He also knows that left to ourselves, we would not always do the right thing. So, God stepped in and made a way for us to find forgiveness and begin again.

How did God do this? He sent His Son, Jesus Christ to live among us. He taught us a better way. Jesus was perfect in every way, but mankind was not happy with God’s way forward. While Jesus taught us to love God and each other, evil men plotted his death upon a cross. They took him away and tried his case unfairly. The same people that Jesus taught, healed and fed, forced a Roman Governor to sentence Him to death on a cross.

Jesus died to take our sins on His shoulders. He paid the price for the wrongs we have done. Because He died in our place, we can find God’s forgiveness. But the story did not end there!

Jesus paid the price for our sins by dying on that cross. Three days later, He rose from the dead. Hundreds of witnesses saw Jesus alive again before he rose to heaven. They heard Jesus promise that when we accept Him here on earth, we would be able to be in heaven with Him when we die.

Now, Jesus is willing to forgive our sins. He knows our weaknesses. He offers to make a way for us, but only if we will ask Him. If you want to be free from your sins, if you want to begin again, ask Him for forgiveness. It is not complicated.

Simply talk to God and say: “Thank you, God, for loving me and sending your Son to die on the cross for the wrongs I have done. I am sorry for the things I have done that hurt You. I choose to make Jesus the Lord of my life. Help me to be the kind of person that You want me to be. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

God Loves You! God wants a relationship with you. He made a way for us to find forgiveness and begin again. Start that relationship with him today for He says,
“Behold, now is “THE ACCEPTABLE TIME,” behold, now is “THE DAY OF SALVATION”. (2 Corinthians 6:2)

Fruit Of The Spirit
Part 1: Fruit of the Spirit – Visible Growth in Jesus Christ

“Fruit of the Spirit” is a biblical term that sums up the nine visible attributes of a true Christian life. Using the King James Version of Galatians 5:22-23, these attributes are: love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance. We learn from scripture that these are not individual “fruits” from which we pick and choose. Rather, the fruit of the Spirit is one ninefold “fruit” that characterizes all who truly walk in the Holy Spirit. Collectively, these are the fruits that all Christians should be producing in their new lives with Jesus Christ.

Fruit of the Spirit – The Nine Biblical Attributes
The fruit of the Spirit is a physical manifestation of a Christian’s transformed life. In order to mature as believers, we should study and understand the attributes of the ninefold fruit:

Love – “And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him” (1 John 4:16). Through Jesus Christ, our greatest goal is to do all things in love. “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails” (1 Corinthians 13:4-8).

Joy – “The joy of the Lord is your strength” (Nehemiah 8:10). “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God” (Hebrews 12:2).

Peace – “Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” (Romans 5:1). “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit” (Romans 15:13).

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY JULY 16, 2017

Once again we welcome you as we gather to worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. May His name be glorified in us.

A Chinese woman named Ting, who had formally been involved in Shamanism has dedicated her life to Jesus Christ after seeing Him in a dream while on her deathbed. Shamanism deals in the realm of darkness and demons. Ting had the ability to attract “thousands” of people to seek her counsel. But one day her health started to deteriorate. She was left completely paralyzed, and doctors were unable to explain her illness.

As she was on her deathbed, Ting said she experienced a dream in which she saw Jesus. “I was in the back seat of a taxi as my brother drove me toward an endless darkness. But then three men, who were wearing brilliant white robes, approached. But their light was so bright, I couldn’t see their faces. They told me I must make a choice. And as they spoke, two other men wearing black robes invited me to follow them. I knew in my heart one of the men wearing a white robe was Jesus. So I followed Him.”

When she woke up, she realized that she was healed. Ting knew it was Christ who healed her, and so she decided to “place her life into His hands.” Ting rejected her former life of involvement with demons and darkness. “But despite the persecution and abuse she suffered at the hands of her family, she decided to become a Christian.

According to a report in Open Doors, Chinese Christians, especially in Ting’s rural area, face severe persecution. Conversion to Christianity is considered to be an “utter disgrace,” and it causes great strains on one’s relationship with one’s family. Christians are disowned by loved ones and banished into exile. Ting’s story serves as a reminder that nobody lives “outside the reach of Jesus.” For God so loved the world; that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth on Him should not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16).

DISCOURAGED?
YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER HAS SOMETHING TO SAY

Dear child of mine,

I am one who comforts you. I bought you and complete you. I delight in you and claim you as my own, rejoicing over you as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride. I will never fail you or forsake you. You are worried and troubled about many things; trust me with all your heart. I know how to rescue godly people from their trials. Let me strengthen you with my glorious power. I did not spare my Son but gave him up for you. Won’t I give you everything else?

When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. So, don’t worry. I never tire or sleep. I stand beside you. The angel of the LORD encamps around you. I hide you in the shelter of my presence. I will go ahead of you, directing your steps and delighting in every detail of your life. If you stumble, you will not fall, for I hold you by the hand. I will guide you along the best pathway for your life.

I will make you fruitful in the land of suffering, trading beauty for ashes, joy for mourning, praise for despair. I live with the low spirited and spirit crushed. I put new spirit in you and get you on your feet again. Weeping may go on all night, but joy comes with the morning. If I am for you, who can ever be against you?

You sometimes say, “The Lord has deserted me; the Lord has forgotten me.” But can a mother forget her nursing child? Can she feel no love for a child she has borne? Even if that were possible, I would not forget you! I paid for you with the precious lifeblood of Christ, my sinless, spotless Lamb. No one will snatch you away from me. See, I have written your name on my hand. I call you my friend. Why, the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are valuable to me.

Give me your burdens; I will take care of you.

Your Maker, your Father,

God

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY JULY 9, 2017

Once again we welcome you as we gather to worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. May His name be glorified in us.

Two U.K. preachers, Michael Overd and Michael Stockwell were convicted of “religiously aggravated public disorder” in February. They were accused of hate speech against Muslims and gay people after simply reading from the King James Bible and affirming that “Jesus is the only way to God” before a crowd of 100 people.

Today, they are enjoying a sweeping victory after winning their appeal at the Bristol Crown Court. At the appeal hearing Overd said that he does not hate Muslims or gays, but while he disagrees with homosexual people, he doesn’t find them to be worse than anyone else. He calls himself a “Christian soldier,” and has vowed to be back on the streets preaching. Stockwell, a former U.S. marine in responding to the decision of the court, remarked that people should have the freedom “to express their beliefs in public without risk of harm, violence or other repercussions.”

Bristol Crown Court judges stated that despite witness reports that the preachers had been intentionally trying to wind people up; there was no evidence provided that the offense was religiously aggravated. Andrea Williams from the Christian Legal Center which was supporting the preachers said, “At a time where Christians are becoming increasingly fearful about expressing their beliefs in the public space, this is a welcome and needed result. We are grateful that the judge made the right decision today.”

Jesus has commanded us to go into the entire world and preach the gospel to everyone. He also assures us of His abiding presence with us in the process. Therefore, we have no need to fear no matter what the devil may try to do against us. In all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loves us. Amen!

Freely You Have Received, Freely Give

Then Peter came up to Him and said, Lord, how many times may my brother sin against me and I forgive him and let it go? [As many as] up to seven times? Jesus answered him, I tell you, not up to seven times, but seventy times seven
– Matthew 18:21-22

I don’t know about you, but I am glad that God does not put a limit on how many times He will forgive us. Regardless of how many times we fall short, He continues to demonstrate His love for us by forgiving us and welcoming us back time and time again.

But isn’t it amazing how we are willing to keep receiving forgiveness from God, yet how little we want to give forgiveness to others? We freely accept mercy, yet it is surprising how rigid, legalistic, and merciless we can be toward others.

The bottom line is this: As people who have been forgiven much, it is important we learn to share that same forgiveness with others. We can’t live in close relationship with God while we harbor bitterness, resentment, and unforgiveness toward another person. These are chains that will keep us spiritually bound up and far from God’s best in our lives.
If there are people who have hurt you and you are finding it difficult to forgive them, just remember all the things God has forgiven you for. When you look at it that way, forgiveness becomes something much easier to give to others.

God’s grace helps us do things easily that would otherwise be hard.

OVERCOMER: Living a Life of Victory!

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY JULY 2, 2017

David said, “I was glad when they said unto me; let us go into the house of the Lord.” I am sure you said that. Welcome!

A report in The Christian Post of a study by Barna Group explored the faith profile of 131 cities in America to identify the top 10 most Bible-minded cities as well as the least Bible-minded cities in 2017. Barna’s annual Bible-Minded Cities report, in partnership with American Bible Society, is based on interviews with 76,505 adults over a 10-year period. And it found that Chattanooga in Tennessee is the most Bible-minded city in America, for the second year in a row.

The evangelical polling organization determined “Bible-mindedness” by asking the respondents how regular they were in reading the Bible and what they thought of its accuracy. Based on the results, the group found that 50 percent of the population of Chattanooga is Bible-minded. Birmingham, Anniston and Tuscaloosa in Alabama have taken the second spot, with 49 percent. In 2015, these cities had the first spot. Roanoke and Lynchburg in Virginia, with 48 percent, are the third most Bible-minded. Then it’s back to Tennessee, with the Tri-Cities area, also around 48 percent, coming in at fourth place. Shreveport in Louisiana (47 percent) has taken fifth place.

The next five are also from the Southern “Bible belt.” They include Charlotte in North Carolina (46 percent); Springfield in Missouri (46 percent); Little Rock and Pine Bluff in Arkansas (44 percent); Knoxville in Tennessee (44 percent); Greenville, Spartanburg and Anderson in South Carolina and Asheville in North Carolina (44 percent).

Nationally, only 25 percent of the population is considered Bible-minded, according to Barna. Individuals considered to be Bible-minded are those who report reading the Bible in the past week and who strongly assert the Bible is accurate in the principles it teaches.

As we celebrate 241 years of independence, let us be reminded that this great nation was built on the principles of the Bible. “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord” (Psalm 33:12) should always be our guiding light.

John
What’s the big idea?
While the other three gospels portray Jesus as the King, the Servant, and the Son of Man, John portrays Jesus as the Son of God. John stated his theme more clearly than any of the other gospel writers. He wrote so that his readers might “believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God,” so that they may have life in His name (John 20:31). To accomplish that goal, John presented a riveting and distinctive picture of Jesus Christ, one in complete unity with the portraits in the other three gospels, but one that also adds significantly to the Bible’s revelation of Jesus Christ, the God-man.

John used a variety of techniques to communicate to his readers the nature of Jesus. These include his citation of Jesus’s seven “I am” statements, in which Jesus spoke of Himself in terms such as “the Light of the world” (8:12), “the resurrection and the life” (11:25), and “the way, and the truth, and the life” (14:6). Much of John’s gospel (chapters 2–12) might be called the Book of Signs, as it recounts Jesus’s performing of seven different miracles—such as the turning water to wine at Cana and raising Lazarus from the dead at Bethany. These miracles illustrate His identity as the Son of God.

How do I apply this?
Jesus’s identity as the divine Son of God sets Him apart from any other man who ever lived. He carries with Him the transcendence that comes only with God Himself. Therefore, His work on our behalf makes our salvation sure. Because He is God, His sacrifice on the cross has eternal implications, unlike the limited effect of the animal sacrifices in the Old Testament. Jesus, the God-man, has atoned for our sins. We can place our confidence in Him because of His divine nature.

For readers of John’s gospel, the question is a simple, though significant, one: Do you believe that Jesus is Lord? If you believe, you will receive eternal life, claiming the truth that you will one day live in the presence of God in a place with no more pain, no more tears, and no more death.

OVERCOMER: Living a Life of Victory!

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY JUNE 25, 2017

Welcome to FEA where we are living the life of the world overcomer. May you overcome today and every day.

Kenya’s government has recently banned six animated shows on Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network! This is indeed good news for the people of God not only in Kenya but around the world! The following shows “The Loud House,” “The Legend of Korra,” “Hey Arnold,” “Steven Universe,” “Adventure Time” and “Clarence” have been identified as glorifying homosexual behavior and damaging the moral judgment of children.

“The Legend of Korra” featured a same-sex kiss in one of the episodes and a married gay couple on “The Loud House.” It is evident that the children’s programs are designed to promote the LGBT agenda in the Kenya according to a statement made by the Kenya Film Classification Board. Kenya is a predominantly Christian country where same-sex sexual acts are illegal and offenders face the threat of imprisonment.

Cartoon shows that promote LGBT agenda have also been boycotted by conservative Christian groups in the United States. In May, a petition was launched against Disney XD by One Million Moms after the network portrayed several homosexual kisses in the popular cartoon “Stars vs. The Forces of Evil.”

Let us as parents take our stand against the devil as he seeks to infiltrate his evil into the minds of our children in this subtle way. Let us guard their eyes and ears as God expects us to do. We must teach our children and grandchildren the Word of God even as soon as they begin to talk. They are living in very crucial times. But God’s word is more powerful than any work of darkness. As we teach them the word of God, He will be able to channel them in the right direction. Jesus said, “And you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.” (Jn. 8:32).

John

Who wrote the book?
Not surprisingly, the gospel of John never provides the name of its author. Such identifications were not made in any of the other three biblical gospels either. However, two significant factors point to the identification of John as the author. First, the book itself identifies the author as the disciple whom Jesus loved. This description likely pointed to John for three reasons: the author had to be one of the twelve disciples because he was an eyewitness to the events in the gospel (John 21:24); he was probably one of the inner circle of three disciples (James, John, and Peter) because he was among the first Mary told of the resurrection (20:1–10); and this disciple is distinguished from Peter in the book, while James died too soon after the resurrection to be the author. The second significant evidence for John’s authorship is the unanimous testimony of early Christians, among them the second-century Christian Irenaeus, who declared that John was the disciple who laid his head on Jesus—the disciple “whom Jesus loved” (13:23)—and the author of the gospel.

Where are we?
In Christian tradition, John’s gospel has always been referred to as the fourth gospel, meaning it was composed after the other three. Polycarp, a second-century Christian martyr who knew John personally, told Irenaeus that John had written the book during the apostle’s time serving the church in Ephesus. These factors suggest that John wrote the book between AD 85 and AD 95.

Why is John so important?
John did not include the nativity story in his gospel; instead, he introduced his book by going back even further into history. Invoking the “in the beginning” language of Genesis 1:1, John made a direct link between the nature of God and the nature of the Word, Jesus Christ. The emphasis on the deity of Christ is a striking quality of John’s gospel. It also comes through clearly elsewhere in the book, particularly in John 8:58 when Jesus claimed the divine name—“I am”—for Himself, which led an angry mob of Jews to try and kill Him for blasphemy.

OVERCOMER: Living a Life of Victory!

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY JUNE 18, 2017

Greetings to all in the precious name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! Let us rejoice in Him and be glad today.

The most widely accepted story on the origin of Father’s Day comes from Spokane, Washington. Sonora Smart Dodd, who grew up without a mother, was looking for a way to publicly recognize, thank and honor her father who had raised her and her five siblings single-handedly. She brought the idea to her pastor and church brethren. They gladly embraced the idea and held the first Father’s Day celebration on June 19, 1909.

Father’s Day was established with noble intentions. However, it is impossible for us to improve on the Scriptures. Ephesians 6: 1 – 3 states, “Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. Honor your father and mother, which is the first commandment with promise, that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.” Here we are made aware of the two essential blessings which God attaches to honoring our father and mother. They are success and longevity. What great blessings!

Because there is a link between honoring our parents and honoring God, we need to be aware of the unintended consequences of establishing one day to honor parents. People tend to forget the history that led to the establishment of this day and begin to act as if it is the only day that we need to honor our father. We can therefore see how the law of unintended consequences can impact this relationship. For instance, if we are not careful, the term “Lord’s Day” can come to mean Sunday is the only day that belongs to God and, therefore, is the only time we pause to worship, praise and honor Him. Left uncorrected, this concept can take root and lead one to falsely believe that God is pleased if we only pause once a week for an hour or two to honor Him, when God intends for it to be a daily thing. It is the same with honoring our father; God intends for it to be a daily thing.

We are thankful to God for fathers and the fact that we can pause on this day annually to joyfully acknowledge the blessing of fatherhood. May God help us to obey Him and be appreciative of our father this and every day.

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!

DAD
God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the eagle’s flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need.
Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so, He called it… “DAD”

OVERCOMER: Living a Life of Victory!

BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY JUNE 11, 2017

Greetings to all in the precious name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! Let us make His praise glorious today.

According to an article in Christian Post, one of the benefits of attending church is that you have better health and live longer than those who do not. This is the result of a recent study by Vanderbilt University professor Marino Bruce who is also the associate director of Vanderbilt’s Center for Research on Men’s Health.

In a video posted to You Tube by the university, Bruce said, “We found in our study that actually attending church is actually good for your health, particularly for those who are between the ages of 40 and 65.” Middle aged adults who attend church reduce their mortality by 55 percent. He further pointed out that people “who did not attend church at all, were twice as likely to die prematurely than those who attended church at some point during the last year.”

The study entitled “Church Attendance, Allostatic Load and Mortality in Middle Aged Adults,” used information from the National Health and Nutritional Examination Survey involving 5,449 participants, both men and women. It looked at the participants’ worship attendance, mortality, allostatic load and social support. Allostatic load is the wear and tear of the body which builds up as a person is exposed to repeated or chronic stress. The professor says he would like to also study the effect of holiness on a person’s health. It is believed that when you feel good about yourself, you eat better and take good care of yourself, he argues.

Another study published last year showed that American women who attend a church service once a week or more are five times less likely to commit suicide compared with those who never go to a religious gathering. The study had 89,708 women aged 30 to 55 years from across the United States as participants. It was published in July in JAMA Psychiatry.

Let us obey the instruction which God’s Word gives us in Hebrews 10:25 and not forsake the assembling of ourselves together as the manner of some is. Evidently it is beneficial not only for your spirit, but also for your body and soul.
