Uncomfortable with God's Commands


If you love Me, you will obey what I command. John 14:15

 

Last week we began a new series “UNCOMFORTABLE”, and Hunter did a good job getting us started and presenting “Uncomfortable with God’s Charity”. He talked about John 13 and Jesus washing the disciple’s feet. Jesus loves you and I that much that He is willing to serve even in the lowliest tasks. How much do we love Jesus, and others and what are we willing to do for others?

 

This week we will continue with our series “UNCOMFORTABLE” and this week’s message will be “Uncomfortable with God’s commands”.

Obedience is important. Obedience speaks to our relationship with Jesus. I think part of the problem why some have issues with obedience is because they are still “immature in their faith”. They haven’t grown up and like children who disobey their parents or authority they disobey God.

Sometimes people may be uncomfortable with God’s commands because they “don’t want to be told what to do”. This sounds like someone who has a problem with allowing God to be sovereign and be LORD of their life. Lot’s of people want Jesus to be savior, so they can go to heaven someday, but they do not want Him or do not allow Him to be LORD TODAY because they don’t want anyone to “Boss them”.

 

I pray you will join me this week as we continue these messages on our reasons for being Uncomfortable. Pray with me that God will move people out of their comfort zones and into HIS UNCOMFORTABLE ZONES.

Hard to believe we are about to the end of another year of our Super Summer Services. They have been very well attended. I think this year at each one of the services we have had larger crowds than before. Thank You for supporting these services each year! This week’s service will be at HAMBY BAPTIST: meal at 5pm and worship at 6pm.

PRAYER NEEDS

 

Praise: Shelby Borton is home, she is better but still has a long way to go, Brycen, Pat Smith, Darlene Terry (had her ear surgery this week), Praise the LORD for more rain this week, pray for all the students and teachers as they are beginning a new school year,

 

Final thought:

1 Corinthians 9:26-27

“Thus, I do not run aimlessly; I do not fight as if I were shadowboxing. No, I drive my body and train it, for fear that, after having preached to others, I myself should be disqualified.”

 

My goal was 50 miles a week, I reached that last with a total of 54 and so for this week (Monday – Thursday) I have ridden my bike 70 miles. The Bible doesn’t say everyone has to ride bikes or jog or swim or go to the gym, but Paul does talk about exercising his body as a good thing.

My thought in this is not to boast about “what I have done” but to ask and or challenge you: What goals are you setting?

 

Thanks for the prayers! See you in Worship!

 

Your pastor and friend

Bro. Keith
