"Where Love Reigns!"

     Good Afternoon Church Family,  God is able and faithful! I am so excited for this Sunday!!!  Missions Sunday!!!!  It's one of my favorite services of the year.  God is doing so much across the world and when we give to missions, we are a part of that!  It's just the most exciting thing when you think about it.  Our seed travels around the world and is planted by others... grows up and produces a harvest of lives for Jesus!  How can you not get excited about Missions Sunday!!!  On top of that there are so many stories of what God is doing in the countries we support!  Breakthroughs, new fresh ideas, people being touched and led to Jesus... it's hard to contain my excitement and save it for Sunday!!!  And then there's what we gave last year!!!!!!!  And the total so far... wow!!!!  It's going to be an exciting time on Sunday and you don't want to miss out.  God is on the move and we are a part of it... I'm so grateful for the opportunity to be a part personally and as a church family!  Blessed to be a blessing... that's really what it is all about.  To live lives that have overflow so that we can give to every good work.  
     We talked Sunday about stretching ourselves to not limit God in the receiving end of giving.  When we give, we often forget what the Bible tells us in Luke 6:38, "Don’t hold back—give freely, and you’ll have plenty poured back into your lap—a good measure, pressed down, shaken together, brimming over. You’ll receive in the same measure you give."  Whatever measure we give, that is the measure we should be looking to be returned... our harvest.  Normally, we give and we see only a dollar amount but really that dollar amount is a seed.  When you plant a seed in the natural, do you only get one fruit or one vegetable in return?  Let's just look at an apple seed.  You plant that in the ground and it becomes a tree.  That tree does not grow up and give you one apple each year.  No, it gives you bushels and those bushels keep coming every year.  We need to stretch ourselves and be looking for what God wants to bless us with.... a good measure, pressed down, shaken together (making room for more!) and running over harvest!!!  This isn't a little harvest on your seed... it's the measure you are being given back.  Your seed is blessed and produces so much it's overflowing in your life.... why?  We know Church Family!!  We are blessed to be a blessing!  Most of you know my heart where missions is concerned.  My dream is be able to fully fund all five of our missionaries... totally.  But it doesn't stop there!!  I believe God is going to bring us organizations and ministries that have been called but don't have enough to fund what God has called them to do.  I believe we will be vessel that God can flow through to get the funds where they need to go in these last days to help bring in the harvest of souls that will come in!!!  Just stop to think about how much you could give if you didn't have any more bills?  How exciting would it be to be able to give that money where God tells you to give because you are no longer bound to give it to pay bills?  It's kind of hard to imagine isn't it?  But this is where I believe God is taking us in these last days.  A people who are looking for the harvest on the seed they sow not just getting their seed back.  We need to be orchard tenders not seed collectors.  People who own orchards are always looking for people who can come and share in their harvest.  They know they don't have to hold onto every piece of fruit because their harvest keeps coming and coming and coming!  What an exciting way to live!!  I don't know about you but I want to stretch my thinking to tending orchards.  I want to be blessed... to be a blessing!  Let's sow our seeds Church Family and look and take care of the orchards God has for us.  There is a work to do in these last days and we want to be doing and giving to what God instructs us to do and give to.  Amen? Amen!!  If you aren't able to be with us on Sunday, don't miss next week's Praise and Prayer with the recap!!!  Or you can listen to the service on our website, which is normally posted by Monday evening.  These are exciting times to be a part of God's family and a part of what He is doing!!  Let's be praying and agreeing for the greatest year of giving we have had to date for our missions!!!  If you would like to be part of our Missions giving and you aren't able to be with us in person, you can email us and let us know the amount you want to pledge!  You have a full year to complete the pledge but most of the time God blesses and it's paid off early!!!  Don't miss out on being a part of this exciting opportunity to help reach people all over the world!!!  Have a blessed rest of your night, Church Family and remember... we are blessed to be a blessing!!!  God bless!!!  Pastors Sheli and Steve
