Script #89


Beloved,

I hope/pray you did not miss yesterday's worship services in a 815-544-3535 kinda way.

God our Father through the Holy Spirit in the name of Jesus is moving very, very, very quickly in our midst; drawing His to Himself and reinforcing saints with saints.  The pace quickens because the pace quickens.

I cannot repeat enough the importance of ingesting the message via 815-544-3535.

No excuses.

As the old priest said to the young priest in Monsignor, "God provides our choices; but we ourselves must choose."

C.S. Lewis said it's like standing at a bus stop.  The bus comes.  We decide to ride or...

Surely, the enemy will now invade to detour, discourage, and disappoint.

It's time to read 2 Corinthians 4:8-18 and 1 John 4:4-6 juxtaposed to Ephesians 6:10-20.

I have been spending more and more and more time with people who have real problems who really need to know Jesus on a much deeper level; and I have come to realize the enemy tries to detour, discourage, and disappoint me by distractions over matters of incidental, minor, and - to use a Biblical word that is used over and over and over again about such things - "stupid" stuff.

I have come to realize the enemy tries to detour, discourage, and disappoint me by distractions over matters of personal pride, control, selfishness, parochialism, and the oppressed who have yet to learn how to distinguish a religion about Jesus from a personal/corporate relationship with Jesus.

I have come to realize I am scratching the surface of my relationship with Jesus on all matters of faith and life (please read the below about that so you don't miss out on what's happening every day and every worship service on the corner of Lincoln and Main in a 815-544-3535 kinda way).

If you've got an itch, I look forward to scratching with you.

Itch.

Not what you don't like in a pride, control, selfish, parochial, or oppressed kinda way.

Itch.

Where you know you need to deeper in your relationship with Father, Son, and Holy Spirit to tap into His best for your life.

Blessings and Love!
