Sunday's Bulletin Message 5/19/2019
Our Church's Theme:
“What Would Jesus Do?” Continues Into 2019.
We're discovering the words and deeds of our Lord Jesus Christ and attempting to apply them to our lives and the lives of our families.
I hope you're already asking this question at the beginning of any decisions you are making and I'm hoping that as you do, you are honestly attempting to “trust and obey”. A great theme such as “What Would Jesus Do?” only profits those applying what they learn. Today we're discovering how Jesus responded to those who tried to entangle him in his talk. (Matthew 22:15-22)
The rebellious and hurtful attitude that many have toward Jesus Christ, who went about doing good and healing those oppressed by the devil, is an inexplicable thing. You'd think that, since Jesus never did anything wrong, never destroyed anyone's life with heartache and sin, but in fact added good things to this world and to the lives of all who'd follow him, would cause all to love him. But, to the contrary, most choose not to either love or follow him in preference for their own way, which, invariably leads to destruction in this life and to an eternity without God.
Our text is an example of this:
1. There's a MOTIVE that's wicked.
2. There's a MESSAGE that works.
3. There's a ME to wonder.
Give to Caeser what's his and to God what's his. There is no reason why you cannot live in this world and have Christ living in you also. It's a life that works for us!
Together We Can,
Sr. Pastor Bill Rains
