Brothers and Sisters,
Happy 2019!!! I believe this is going to be a remarkable year for those of us who love the Lord and have confidence that His Word is true. The bible teaches us in Malachi 3:8-12 “Will a man rob God? Yet you have robbed Me! But you say, ‘In what way have we robbed You?’ In tithes and offerings. 9 You are cursed with a curse, For you have robbed Me, Even this whole nation. 10 Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, That there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this,”Says the Lord of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing That there will not be room enough to receive it.11 “And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, So that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground, Nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field, ”Says the Lord of hosts; 12 “And all nations will call you blessed, For you will be a delightful land, ”Says the Lord of hosts.
The truth is that it doesn’t matter if you are rich with all your needs and desires met or someone who is collecting cans to make ends meet, applying this Word to your life will position you in such a way that you can and will be a blessing for our community. There are so many of us that are broken in our spirits because of the state of affairs in the Rogue Valley and it is time to make a difference. The bible teaches us in the book of Luke 6:37-38 “Judge not, and you shall not be judged. Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. 38 Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.” “Romans 3:23-24 says this;23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 being justified [a]freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.” Listen, it is time to get the world won for Christ and we will not get that done by condemning the world. Let’s get together, put this money together and show the world just how much we love them by loving them with the same kind of love that motivated Jesus Christ to die on the cross and pay for the sins of the world. I know we can do this and I am excited about all that we shall get accomplish in name of Jesus Christ in this year of 2019. Let us pray, let us plan and let us execute. PRAY PLAN EXECUTE!!! ONE LOVE EVERYBODY!!!
