Today’s Thought

My brothers and sisters, God’s grace and peace be with you.

It is not easy to be a follower of Jesus. There are many who start out strong, but, like somebody who tries to sprint a marathon, they run out of energy.

Discipleship requires energy, stamina, discipline, vigilance and prayer. When you pray, be careful what you ask for, because you might get it! Make no mistake, following Jesus is a life-long commitment. We need to encourage each other along the way. That is why I am so happy you are here with me this morning. God bless you.


Inspirational Quote

The moment you say and believe that you are a Christian, meaning you believe Jesus Christ is your personal Lord and Savior, it is a commitment. Ken Black
