(Pre-thought) It is amazing how no matter what the day would have amounted to, typically, when you make a commitment to christ and you make good on that commitment (fasting) becomes a blessing to you, in the face of whatever might have transpired that day. When you don’t surrender something (object, person, or activity) to christ, and you feel like God has been asking for it, and He takes it anyway, then you realize how much more of a blessing it could have been had you surrendered it.

Devotion: “God of Compassion”

We all need god’s grace. Some people feel they are worse off than others and some feel that they are too “good”. They either can’t recognize how much they need God’s grace, or some think/feel so bad they think there is no hope for them.

Verse: Luke 15:20

Verse displays the Father’s love for us…and how great it is, in spite of our tendencies to turn our back on Him. In church this morning, we spoke about Shad. Me. and Abed. and their courage under fire. (Shadrach Meshach and Abednego)

CONVICTIONS over CONVENIENCE!!!

PRINCIPLES over POPULARITY!!!

DO NOT CONFORM!!!

Working on not biting nails and not drinking coffee.

Bible Study at Rocky Creek

Happiness- manifests through righteous living for God

Pleasure Mania—> Entertainment industry —> created to keep us from mourning.

Blessed—> Happy

Blessed are those who mourn. Sin grieves God.

Luke 7:36 Pharisees house –> Jesus forgives woman of the city.

Christianity is NOT an addition to life. Christ changes lives.

When we grieve like God grieves, when we hurt like god hurts, He will give us comfort (reinforcements). Blessed are those who quit “pretending”.
