Well it is officially fall for me. I have been waking to a chill in the air. We even had to close the windows at night.
But the real indicator; is how much coffee has been consumed at my house the last few days.
Its seems like when it is cool outside, nothing better than a big hot cup of JOE. .
This made me think on the spiritual side of things!
What is JOE?
J = Jesus
O = Over
E = Evertything
We need JOE! EVERYDAY! EVERYWHERE! ALL THE TIME!
Maybe things are rough at home... try a little JOE!
Maybe things are getting rough on the job... try a little JOE!
Maybe things are going rough financialy... try a little JOE!
The name of Jesus: heals the sick, can give life to the dead, can fix what is broken, can make old things new, and can make dreams come true!
See at the name of JESUS demons must flee. Thats right every little spiritual terrorist plot the enemy has will be disrupted, exposed, and destoyed at the mention of the name of JESUS!.
No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord. (Isaiah 54:17 KJV)
Saying the name of JESUS, calls on the highest power known to man. It calls on the person with the MOST LOVE WE HAVE EVER KNOWN! It calls on the only person WHO CAN and WANTS TO FORGIVE YOUR SINS!
Not only that, JOE works when THINGS ARE GOING GOOD! In fact you have to call on the name Jesus for things to go GOOD!
Like the jingle says "The best part of waking up is JOE in your cup"
So how about a big cup of JOE today?
Well it is raining outside and dreary.
>You may be thinking yuck, I would love to go back to bed!
>Or this morning maybe you are thinking of all the things you must get done and looked out the window and lost all motivation.
This reminds me of many times how we are spiritually. We walk simply by sight. Everything looks different than our hopes so we allow it to change our day, mindset, & plans. When you really think about it, nothing really changed except us! We're alive and God is still GOOD!
What will you grab this morning your umbrella or sunglasses?
The truth is the sun shines all day, everyday! Even on rainy days the sun is above the clouds! Even in our night the sun is shining somewhere around the world! See the sun is permanent like God and his words. Now our storms and dark times are only temporary .
(For we walk by faith, not by sight:) (2 Corinthians 5:7 KJV)
Notice, faith is spiritual and sight is physical! Today you can be led by the physical man or the spiritual man.
>If you focus on the physical you will have a wet rainy messed up day.
>If you focus on the spiritual, NOTHING CHANGED AND THE SUN IS STILL SHINING!
In fact God has such a bright Holy Ghost Filled day; you will need some shades! What will you grab this morning your umbrella or sunglasses?
In my almost two years here, it has been my goal to do everything within my ability to help Oxford be the center of revival for Chester County. This revival will only come once we get into the hearts, minds, and homes those around us. With that in mind we are now pursuing anybody and everybody with every way we can with this Acts 2:38 life changing message.
So let it be known, ACO is all about making better people, homes, and futures! By helping people get better we are making better homes and futures. The word of God prospers all who allow it to touch them.
Now to the focus of this note: we have made this new website as an outreach tool BUT NOW WE WILL HAVE DVD's OF OUR SERVICES AVAILABLE TO PUT IN THE HOMES OF OUR COMMUNITY! To change a home we need the word of God in the home. NOW we can do that in a very easy & unobtrusive way.
So If you a hear message and say I would love to hear that again...YOU CAN or I wish "-------" could hear that...THEY CAN. So stop by the our media department and make your order. DVD's are $1. If you are wanting a DVD for outreach please let the Pastor know. Also many previous services are archived if you are interested in those.
If you are not able to make it out and would like to recieve a DVD. Please go to the contact us page and send a message and write DVDs in the text box.
Well this is another tool... let's use it!
Thanks Pastor Davis
Well we have been having some wonderful blowout services. Many praying through in the alters, many receiving healing, being baptized, and all that other good stuff that happens at a Apostolic Church. I cant THANK the Lord enough.
But yesterday was a special day. We had a breakfast for our Grandparents. Truly where would we be without them? I know my grandmother was a Saint for the Lord and a witness for me.
To show honor we had a special treat. I was running the griddle and making made to order eggs. I love doing this as my Grandfather was the one who taught me how to eat (there is a funny story) and fry eggs. We also had the youth carrying plates and serving the the Grandparents. This was a true blessing. But for 1 Grandma it was extra special as she got to witness two of her grandchildren baptized in that wonderful name of Jesus!. Amen. Thank You Lord!
Ok, for sometime we have had a website. As you know I am particular about things. So to say the least I was not happy with the 1 page site.
So with me being sick the last few days I found good can come out of sickness. I built a new church website with many new features. I put in many hours into it. But I think it will be a great way to let people know who we are and where we're at.
So now you are thinking why did he put a wooden nickle on here? Well as you know we now have our CHURCH ROUND TUITS. They sport our address and WEBSITE on them... SO LETS PASS THEM OUT BECAUSE WE HAVE REAL WEBSITE WITH A REAL MESSAGE FOR THEM!
Living for God is REAL, FUN , AND 100% Necessary!
