    I haven't found a church to attend just yet,but I do lone studies and right now I am working on unconditional forgiveness.

    I have a situation that could REALLY damage my walk and my testimony if I don't keep a leash on my tongue and keep my attitude in check..so I'm studying the verses on forgivness.
    Loving my neighbor is next....It's hard to love a neighbor who is smug and condesending when they cause problems that end up costing a small fortune to correct...but I'm working on it.

    God is leading the way and I'm following. [​IMG]

    I preached on Romans 12:3-8 on serving the Lord in the right way. To do this we must:

    1. Have the right attitude v. 3

    2. Understand the unity of the church v. 4-5

    3. Use our God-given gifts v. 6-8

    Pastor started a series of sermons on marriage. Today was emphasis on commitment and communication.

    Second (of eight) in a set of topical sermons on Stewardship.

    Our Treasure...Our Hearts"

    Matt. 6:19-21

    1. Treasures on the earth are temporal. (Ecc. 5:10-15)

    2. Treasures in heaven are eternal
    (It is not improper to be motivated toward holiness by the desire have treasures in heaven-Matt.19:21; 10:42; Phil. 4:17).

    3. My heart always goes where I put God's treasure. Heb. 11:26

    "He who lays up treasures on earth spends his life backing away from his earthly treasures. To him, death is a loss.
    But he who lays up treasure in heaven looks forward to eternity; he is moving daily toward those treasures. To him, death is gain."

    Unfortunately, I did not get to go.

    I took in a stray cat last week, which I'm allergic to, and I forgot to put her out last night. After I was asleep she got up right next to my face and slept all night.

    I woke up this morning sneezing and with such a sinus headache it was pathetic.

    My asthma even flared up, which is really bad, so I stayed in bed until early afternoon, when I finally felt good enough to get up to "visit the facilities".

    I feel pretty good this evening. The cat has been out most of the day and she will be out, in the garage, tonight.

    I really missed not being able to go to church.

    I've got a cassette here of an elder preaching on Predestination that I'm going to listen to tonight, so maybe I won't have to do penance. ;)

    Our sermon was on Jesus walking on the water to the disciples in the boat. It was pointed out that the sea was rough, yet they were fishermen and were used to it. The focus was on what was "unusual" in the passage. The disciples were in a storm and kept on rowing, this was applied to our lives and that fact that sometimes when things are rough we have to keep on moving ahead, doing what we do best until the point where God intervenes, which may well not be straight away.

    Our pastor finished his series on the 5 judgements in Scripture. This last one was the "Great White Throne". While I disagreed with him that it is ONLY for the lost of all ages, I did take away some lessons for today.

    The biggest lesson is that there IS judgement coming for all. Saved and lost alike. We must be prepared to meet our God.

    Secondly, since there IS judgement coming, I am motivated to "go into all the world" and warn them. Saved and lost alike. Warn the saved, that they must live holy. Warn the lost that they must get saved.

    In HIS service;
    Jim

    I think i'm going to the wrong church...

    did anyone else 'celebrate' 'women in ministry' sunday? [Big Yawn]

    i am not a fan of women in clergy -- based on what i beleive the bible teaches.

    we have a small group of men that are meeting on sunday evenings for a bible study. sunday evening was much much better, to bad only a handful showed up!

    Our sermon was on 'What Should We Teach the Children?' We had the children from C/C come in and do a song for us too. Pastor stressed that our Christian men should get more involved in teaching the younger children and pointed out that two men help the wives, saying boys should see men who love God, too.

    In our church, a week ago Sunday, we had about 700 in Sunday School. 38% of those people were kids 18 and under. On any given Sunday, 28% of those attending are grade 6 and under.

    We're going through Ephesians.

    Our sermon was on 5.22-24 about women submitting to the husband. He discussed how it isn't cultural in part because he ties it to the Church and Christ which is not cultural.

    Saw some of the responsibility I have to my wife. (Will see more next week when he comes to the part about husbands loving your wife as Christ loves the church.)

    "The Sixth Aspect of the Church: 'The Bride'"

    Actually our senior pastor was not the one who presented the message. He had just returned from a month-long tour of some of the mission work that we support in Thailand (which is now very much involved in tsunami relief work), Laos (still a very closed and anti-Christian country), and India. [Go to http://www.lighthouseministries.org for pictures and letters for details.]

    Anyway, getting back to the message, the focus on the message was that the bride must prepare herself for the coming of the Bridegroom.

    The three major points were:

    I. The Hope of the Bridegroom's Return (John 14:1-3)
    A. It gives the bride a sense of peace (as opposed to trouble)
    B. It gives the bride a sense of expectancy (that prompts actions & joy)

    II. The Urgency of the Bride in Lieu of the Bridegroom's Return
    A. Now is the time to prepare (Matthew 25:1-13)
    B. Now is the time to be ready (Matthew 22:2-14)

    III. The Certainty of the Bridegroom's Return
    A. His coming is sure (Acts 1:9-11; I Thessalonians 4:13-18)
    B. His coming is sudden (I Corinthians 15:51-52)
    C. His coming is secret (Matthew 24:36-42, 44, 50 & Matthew 25:13)

    We closed out our services by saying "See You Folks Later" to one of our most precious families who will be moving to the South Denver, CO, area.
    (BTW, if any of you folks know of any good churches in that area, please PM me.)

    Joman asked "Does people have lunch at church on mondays in the USA?"

    Not a usual practice in the state of Maine, or other places that I'm aware of. It would be interesting to see if people remember at lunch on Monday what they heard 24 hours ago!!! [​IMG]

    We have a potluck lunch once in a while on Sunday afternoon. We did it about 4 times this summer right after the morning service. We clean up and head to our local park for an afternoon service outside. This has been an exciting opportunity for our church to get the message out. People walking through the park will stop and listen for a while and we take the time to chat with them and give them some information about our church and a clear salvation message.
