I thank the Lord for allowing all us to see this 1st Month of 2018. For in this month of January I believe God will make this our season of BETTER. I am calling this month our season of BETTER because I believe God will allow us to have BETTER in every area of our lives. I am declaring in this first month of the year that the Lord will allow BETTER to happen in our finances. I believe we will have more than enough but also, we will have an overflow to share. I believe that we will be as the bible says in Deuteronomy 28:12 (NASB) “The LORD will open for you His good storehouse, the heavens, to give rain to your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hand; and you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow.” I am proclaiming that the Lord will allow us to be BETTER in our witness as we take God’s Word to the streets. Acts 1:8 (NLT) says, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere--in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." I believe that we will be BETTER in Praise and Worship. We will be as it says in II Chronicles 5:13-14 (NLT) “The trumpeters and singers performed together in unison to praise and give thanks to the LORD. Accompanied by trumpets, cymbals, and other instruments, they raised their voices and praised the LORD with these words: "He is good! His faithful love endures forever!" At that moment, a thick cloud filled the Temple of the LORD.  The priests could not continue their service because of the cloud, for the glorious presence of the LORD filled the Temple of God.” I want to say if you are attending our services for the first time, that we are happy to have you and hope this will not be your last time visiting with us. We want you to know that we appreciate the fellowship and we truly thank you for being a part of this worship/word experience today. To those of you, who are looking for a church home, we say to you don’t look any further because you have just found the right place. If you are unsaved or unsure of your salvation, we hope by the end of the worship/word experience that you will give Jesus Christ and opportunity to show his love in your life. You can take advantage of this opportunity by doing what Paul says in Romans 10:9-10 (NIV verse) “If you declare with your mouth, Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved”. You can pray this prayer today and the Bible says you will be saved. So, why not try Jesus today, and become a part of this fellowship and watch the Lord make BETTER a part of your life! You may ask me how I know because “I’VE SEEN HIM DO IT”!!  Remember, “Come As You Are and You Won’t Stay as You Are”.
