Good Morning Christ Churchers! Jeremiah 17:24 states “Heal me O Lord and I shall be healed. Save me and I shall be saved. For You are my praise.” I was struck by the fact that not only are we TO praise the Lord, He IS our praise. At first you might think what difference does that make? For me it relates to the Lord being the source of, the very foundation of our praise. We can praise our kids when they do well in school or life. We can praise an organization for some work or benefit it has bestowed. However they are never the very foundation of our praise. Hebrews 1:10-12 He also says, “In the beginning, Lord, you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. They will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment. You will roll them up like a robe; like a garment they will be changed. But you remain the same, and your years will never end.” What a concept to be grasped, the object of our praise has been from the beginning and we’ll be forevermore, without end. Let our praise today come from the comfort and security that our relationship to the target of that praise is grounded with Him forever. Rest in that praise. From that foundation it pours from our hearts. See you in a bit.In His praise,Pastor Gene#morningccrs

Good Morning Christ Churchers!

Last stop in 1 Corinthians 16:13. “Be on your guard (be alert; be watchful); stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.” The last item on Paul’s list in this verse is to be strong. What a reminder and encouragement! So many times for me after doing all the other stuff I’m working on in my Jesus walk, I feel like I’ve kind of just run out of gas. Strong’s Concordance links “be strong” to empower, increase in vigor, to strengthen. I’m encouraged in that because that does not sound like being strong is an end but a process of continuing to gain strength. And we aren’t on our own – without resources. Paul in his letter to the Ephesians (1:19-20) says: “and His incomparably great power FOR US who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength He exerted when He raised Christ from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly realms”. As we head into this week, pointing us to Resurrection Sunday, what a great reminder the same power (strength) that raised Christ from the dead is available to us – with a condition: if we believe. This brought new insight for me into Galatians 2:20 “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” With Jesus in me, I have access to His strength to be strong. Because Jesus faced the cross (with joy – thank you Jesus!) I am blessed as a believer and follower of Him not with my own strength to face what comes my way, but with HIS resurrection power and strength! I find that awesome! Looking forward to joining you as we look to this week of our Christ journey main event! “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of HIS might.” (Ephesians 6:10)Be on guard standing firm in courage, strength, grace, hope, joy and peace.

Big thanks to Ryan and Shantell for helping Pastor Ray and Ghendi with Christ Church Youth! They are doing great work. Here are some of the things we’ve been focusing on:

Good Morning Christ Churchers

There’s a peace in my heart that the world never gave, A peace it cannot take away; Though the trials of life may surround like a cloud, I’ve a peace that has come here to stay! Constantly abiding, Jesus is mine; Constantly abiding, rapture divine; He never leaves me lonely, whispers, O so kind: “I will never leave thee,” Jesus is mine. We don’t know what Anne May Sebring Murphy was going through around 1908 when she penned these words to “Constantly Abiding“. We can pretty much assume that she had been touched by the words from Hebrews 13:5,6 – For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” So we may boldly say: “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?” I realize that we are all not journalers, writers or poets but I do want to encourage each one of us that when we find a verse or verses that are especially powerful and meaningful to us in the space we are in within our walk with Jesus, that we express back to the Lord how much it means to us. Anne May did just that in the 2nd verse speaking directly to her Lord and Savior: All the world seemed to sing of a Savior and King, When peace sweetly came to my heart; Troubles all fled away and my night turned to day, Blessed Jesus, how glorious Thou art Tell someone today what Jesus means to you as we come together to worship and learn at His feet today. Faith, hope, love, joy, grace and peace to you this morning. We’ll be with you in a bit. Pastor Gene

Good Morning Christ Churchers

I came upon this verse while in Joel this week. Joel 2:27 Then you shall know that I am in the midst of Israel: I am the Lord your God And there is no other. My people shall never be put to shame. It has been a wild week in many respects. There seems to be a stirring in the air. Confusion. Confidence. Questioning. Assurance. Direction. Misdirection. The blender of feelings and apprehension swirl us in a mind boggling spin. My head hurts with just pondering what seems to go on around me and in our nation right now. Then I came across this verse and a peace fell upon me that led to a release in my spirit into a time of private worship. “I am the Lord your God and there is no other.” And He is in our midst. That’s not the feeling I get while watching the news or on social media. That place of peaceful worship came from only a little time in God’s word. A reality swept over me that when one set of inputs causes chaos within my spirit and another brings peace and worship – I know where I should be spending a majority of my time. When there have been times this week when I don’t know what to believe, I do know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able, to keep that which I’ve committed, unto Him against that Day. (2 Timothy 1:12)Deep breath, cup of coffee, God’s word and anticipating fellowship. Faith, hope, love, joy, grace and peace to you this morning. We’ll be with you in a bit. Pastor Gene
