funky faith friday

Posted by dturn on March 6, 2009

Here is a few things that I am crazy enough to believe God for:

1. Favor – I am going to be ramping-up my efforts to write and submit more. Pray for open doors.

2. Opportunities – I would love to share what God has given me. If there is not a platform, I will build my own!

3. Next church info meeting is next Sunday, the 15th. Pray for people to be drawn.

At the bottom of education, at the bottom of politics, at the bottom of religion itself there must be, for all races, economic independence.

jumpstart 3/3

Posted by dturn on March 3, 2009

“It was for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.”

Galatians 5:1

Oxen never look real excited when they’re in a field pulling a plow.
I’m sure they rather do anything but be outside, under a hot sun, working.
Unfortunately, they don’t have much say in the matter.
When the farmer decides that it is time to work, its time to work.

Thank God that Christ decided to give up His life so we can enjoy ours.
His sacrifice gave us the ability to be with Him in eternity.
It also gave us the right to live here on earth, free from the chains of sin and death.
Once we have accepted this gift, we no longer have to be held back, held down, or reminded of our past.
Our freedom overtakes our past, our present issues and it protects us from future problems.

Whom the Son has set free is free indeed.

Father, thank You for freeing us. This is a deed that only Christ could do. There was no way that we could change the course that we were on. Sin bound us to eternal separation from You. Christ freed us and we are forever grateful. We are also thankful for knowing, if we are born again, we don’t have to be subject to the chains that the enemy uses to keep us from enjoying life here on earth and with You in eternity.
Amen.
