Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. Hebrews 11:1

Why is it that when we ask God to move in our lives and to shake things up and he does...we get upset?

Why is it that we expect God to do things for us - but never actually want to do things for him?

Sure. It's okay that you're a good person. Sure. You go to church on Sunday and try your best to stay out of trouble and you're always nice to people. But is that enough?

What about our brothers and sisters around the world who are literally sacrificing every day for those they love? Who are beaten and stripped for their faith? Who constantly give the shirt off their back so that their neighbor may come to know Christ? What about the man who gave his car away to a family in need and walks to work each day? What about the girl who gave her lunch away at school so that her friend wouldn't go hungry over the weekend?

What does it mean to live for God?

To carry your cross - and follow Him...

We serve a God who loves us and wants blessings for us. How many of you can look back at hard times in your life and know now that those were hidden blessings we were blinded from? Don't you know that God has something so much greater in mind for your life?



I promise can trust the man who died for you.
