Newsletter-The Desire Of All Nations

The Desire Of All Nations
By: Abundant Grace Daily Devotion
With the worsening of economies, the rising prices and the instability in the markets, the world feels a level of insecurity that it is unfamiliar with. Believers rest in their Savior, knowing that God has it all under control, but the unbeliever has no such faith. What can be shaken, is being shaken, as God said that He would do (verse 7). The things that are of Him, namely the gospel of His grace and goodness, cannot be shaken so they will remain in this final hour (Hebrews 12:25-28).
The thing that every believer looks forward to, and most unbelievers think is a joke, is the arrival of Jesus Christ. Haggai called Him, “the desire of all nations” (Haggai 2:7). What a wonderful description of our Lord Jesus. Even those who do not realize that they are seeking for Jesus are doing so every time that they try to find happiness in the things of this world. All of these things shake and fade away, and man must replace the joy that went with them. They are seeking after what Jesus offers, whether they realize it or not. As Simon said to Jesus, “All men seek for thee” (Mark 1:37).

The Right Kind of Family Inheritance

A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children, And the wealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous. Proverbs 13:22

There is a blessing that we should pass to our families. From what we read in Scripture there is one that we can pass to several generations if we choose to live as God would have us to live. Let us take a look at this today

Newsletter-The Privilege of an Invitation

The Privilege of an Invitation
One of the men sitting at the table with Jesus heard these things. The man said to Jesus, “What a great blessing it will be for a person to eat a meal in God’s kingdom!” Jesus said to him, “A man gave a big dinner. The man invited many people. When it was time to eat, the man sent his servant to tell the guests, ‘Come! The food is ready!’ But all the guests said they could not come. Each man made an excuse. The first man said, ‘I have just bought a field, so I must go look at it. Please excuse me.’ Another man said, ‘I have just bought five pairs of work animals; I must go and try them. Please excuse me.’ A third man said, ‘I just got married; I can’t come.’ So the servant returned. He told his master what had happened. Then the master became angry and said, ‘Hurry! Go into the streets and alleys of the town. Bring me the poor people, the crippled, the blind, and the lame.’ Later the servant said to him, ‘Master, I did what you told me to do, but we still have places for more people.’ The master said to the servant, ‘Go out to the highways and country roads. Tell the people there to come. I want my house to be full! None of those people that I invited first will ever eat with me!'”- Luke 14:15-24 NLT

Newsletter-The Secret Place By: Greg Laurie

The Secret Place 
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
When you were a child, did you ever have a hiding place? A place you would run to when you were afraid or wanted to be alone? God wants to be your hiding place. The good news is that you can retreat to this hiding place wherever you are. When you are tied up in bumper-to-bumper traffic, you can retreat there. When you are having a conflict at work and don’t know what to say or how to deal with it, you can immediately retreat into that secret place of the Most High as you live in fellowship and communion with God.

Newsletter-Dry Bones By: Pastor Ed Rea

Dry Bones
God showed His prophet Ezekiel a vision of a valley filled with dry bones and asked him, “Can these bones live?” This was God’s pledge to someday soon restore His people and the nation of Israel to life and spiritual regeneration. Of course had it been any other person asking the question, the answer would obviously have been of course not, but Ezekiel remembered who was asking and he gave a wise answer.

Newsletter-Meant For Good

Meant For Good
“But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive.”-Genesis 50:20
Aren’t you glad the word oops is not in God’s vocabulary? God is sovereign, which simply means that God is in control. He doesn’t make mistakes. He does what He wants when He wants with whom He wants in any way He wants.That could be a little frightening if we didn’t know that God is also good.

Newsletter-We Will Tell The Next Generation

We Will Tell The Next Generation
We will not hide them from their children; we will tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the LORD, and his might, and the wonders that he has done. (Psalm 78:4)
One of the most important tasks we will have as Christians is raising our children up in a way the both honors the Lord and teaches them the faith. The majority of Christians in church today came form Christians families. Some of them converted once their own but the vast majority were already familiar with the faith because their parents took them to church. While it may not be true that all children who grow up hearing about the Lord will end up being Christians, it is true that they have a higher chance.

Newsletter-The Blessing of Promises By: First Pres Joilet

17 I will surely bless you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore… 18 and through your offspring all nations on earth will be blessed, because you have obeyed me.”
Abraham trusts God completely; willing to obey even it if means offering up his only son Isaac as a sacrifice.  But God graciously provides a sacrifice other than Isaac.  And Abraham calls that place “The Lord will provide.”

Newsletter-Far Away By: Greg Laurie

Far Away
By: Greg Laurie
As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us. -Psalm 103:12
The paralyzed man, who was brought by his friends to Jesus for healing, had been lowered through a hole in the roof (Luke 5:17-26). He was lying there on his bed right in front of Jesus. Jesus looked down at him. Every eye in the room was on this man. Then he looked up into the very eyes of God incarnate.
