The First Sunday Morning 2018

Here we are at the beginning of 2018 - Today there are several things happening: It is the 1st Sunday of the year. It is also Missions Sunday. We have already had communion. This evening we have our 1st Sunday prayer time at 6:00.

I want to begin this year by setting a challenge for each one of us to relentlessly pursue Jesus Christ. 2018 is going to be the very best year we have ever had. Well, it will be for those who receive Him and pursue Him. This message is not for those who are weak and fall away in a day, week, or a month. The glory and riches of God are before us.

For these prophetic words to be yours and for you to have a successful year, there are some things you need to do. I will briefly share those things with you. You must have a total understanding of what I am about to say. And, you must live by it.

There are 2 Key Verses in order to understand this message:

          John 3:7 NKJV - "Do not marvel that I said to you, 'You must be born again.'


John 3:16 NKJV - "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

1. Romans 10:17 NKJV - So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

2. Proverbs 3:5-6 NKJV

          5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;

          6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.

3. James 4:8 NKJV - Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.

4. Romans 8:28 NKJV - And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

5. Hebrews 13:5 NKJV - He Himself has said, "I will never leave you nor forsake you."

As each of you become grounded in these words, your life will be totally changed. You will be lifted out of any gutter you have been in. During 2018 God will begin to speak to you and reveal His truths and riches.

Are you ready for the ride of your life?
