The greatest forensic of our faith is the BLOOD: The blood stains and it leaves its mark. In celebration of Communion, Bishop Fender sheds light on the blood of Christ, and its works. His blood is indisputable. His blood is perfect. His blood brings cleansing. And because of our sin, His blood was our way out of condemnation!
To the believer, there is great value in the term "FREEDOM". Pastor Brandon teaches the values of freedom and its connection to our spiritual walk with God. Just like Paul and Silas praised their way out of imprisonment, we are also equipped with this 'Holy Confidence" that through the mountain tops and through the valleys, our freedom is available to us at ANY time!
"SHOUT verb \ˈshau̇t\ - To utter a loud call or cry; typically as an expression of a strong emotion." Your voice is more than just a way to direct your feelings and thoughts--it is a WEAPON! And in these times, timing is everything! Dr. Fender explains the benefits of this gift, while distinguishing the "shouters" from the "weepers". There is a true virtue in shouting...so SHOUT IT OUT!
I am grateful to God for allowing me to be a citizen of the greatest nation on the face of His beautiful earth! Oh, I am most aware that America has its challenges, but opportunities and all, it is still the best nation in the world! Of all of the things for which I am thankful, one of the most amazing things is that I can praise the name of Jesus, worship Him, proclaim His Word, gather openly with His people and publicly declare that He is Lord to the glory of God the Father! I choose not to take that lightly, but to Celebrate it! Revel in it! Rejoice in it!&n
"A boy loves his mother, but follows his father". Two of the greatest things a father can pass on to his children is the love of God and the things of God!
