Pray for Ministry Leaders: Juanita Bynum, Paula White & All who serve publicly

I have conceded that prayer and a personal committment to true God fearing, spirit led ministry is what is in order for this hour. We have taken the time in observation to comment and express our own individual opinons towards what is right and wrong in the lives and actions of those who we have witnessed publicly proclaim the delivering and saving power of Jesus Christ for years. This is the hour for sincere introspective examinations. Only you can look in the mirror and behold what you really see. This does not deny or overlook what we can clearly see if we chosen in the lives of other believers, but now is the time to recognize that a good old fashioned sanctifying blood washing is needed in order for us all to continue in this day. We are confronted with so many conerfits that it is imperative we seek God’s face continually with no reservations. The diversion is all that we see happening aroound us in this world. We will never see genuine revival until revival breaks out in our own members (body, mind). Whatever is takes get back to where you were called to be, and strive to live above the noise of this society. Be an example and let the world know just what Christ looks like by observing your daily activity. We are commanded to love the Lord with all our heart, soul & mind. Worship is not just what we do, or sing in a pumped up rehearsed and energetic filled service, it is the life we live and the service we give back to God. We serve the Lord with our service to others. Here is a perfect occasion to demonstrate our love for the Lord in worship as we pray for the ministers who carry the Gospel! God Bless – Soulworshiper

Perspective…..

Perspective…..

It is soo very hard to losse sight of what is most important. There are so many things that are competing for our attention these days. From keeping up with the latest fashions, trends, and hobbies, health concerns, children, careers, church work, maintaining our homes, cars, friendships and keeping up with American Idol eliminations. It can be a challenge to keep this all in balance and to insure that you don’t collapse at the same time. The most important thing to remember is that in all you do you must remember to keep the main thing at the top. It’s all about perspective. Our relationship with Godis of most importance, for He give light to what should and how each is to be managed in what way. Your health is definitely important and must come next. If there is no you then what. Family is really after this becuase before any career or and outside work, charity begins at home. All this is followed by our Careers, and church work. A balanced life is what we’re looking for here, and keeping it all in perspective, will cause real balance to manifest. God Bless!

We are benefiting from the life and legacy of our COGIC leaders.

Thank God for men and women of the Church of God In Christ who dared to put their trust in the Lord. Lest we forget the past and fail to embrace the future, we must remember that we are recipients benefiting daily from a great legacy left and being lived out before us by such leaders as the late Bishop Gilbert Earl Patterson, and our presiding prelate Bishop Charles E. Blake. This church, the grand old Church of God In Christ possess a history and presence rich with great pastors, preachers, teachers, prophets, evangelists, and missionaries who were led of God and saw great exploits in their time. We are challenged in this hour to go higher, deeper, and stand taller.
