Yesterday was a spectacular day at The Creek. We had a few guests that were with us for yesterday’s service and I want to encourage you to continue inviting people to come see what is taking place at The Creek.
It was such a blessing to hear how Operation Christmas Child touched the lives of the children and also those individuals that faithfully serve that ministry. Our desire is to see 200 boxes filled and delivered on November 24th. It is going to be incredible!
We also continued our series through the book of Galatians and examined some of the marks of Christian unity. We saw how important it was for us to accept all those that are “in Christ.” We also saw how the Jerusalem apostles understood that God has different callings for different individuals. It is important for us to remember that God has uniquely fitted the church together for His big purposes and long-term plans. Lastly, one of the factors that unify us as a body of believers is that we have a common desire to help the poor. Financially poor, physically poor, emotionally poor, or spiritually poor; no matter the state of someone’s poverty, we are to have a desire to help those in need so that we can point them to Jesus Christ.
Ultimately, in the end we need to be an example of what a biblical body of believers looks like so that when someone asks what makes us so different we can answer with one resounding respond: Jesus Christ. The great thing about this unity is that it isn’t a closed off group. Through the work of Jesus Christ, the message of salvation extends to everyone, and in order to be a part of the family of God, one just has to put their faith and hope in God. For more information on how to do that, check out this link, contact me via email (firstname.lastname@example.org), or give us a call at the church (828-264-1908) and we would be glad to talk to you about it.
Hope you all have a terrific week and I look forward to seeing you on Wednesday!
Love you guys!
For the Kingdom!
