Good News Community Church ":, By Terry Tharp We hear a lot these days about motivation, goal setting, and having a * 5 game plan. And this is important. We need to be motivated to get up and get going. Starting well at whatever we do is critical. But it seems what we often lack, and don't hear much about, is the <" ability to finish well. About sticking with what we begin. About hanging tough after all of the excitement and fun turns to work and discipline. We really need some gut level determination to finish what we start. We are ~:,'" conditioned by society and technology to have just about everything we ,: want without much effort. Many toy with an "I'm getting tired, so I'll just quit" mentality. It's seen in many things, from dieting, finishing school, building close relationships, working through tough conflicts, sticking with an occupation. Even in the spiritual realm of having and building a close relationship with God through Jesus Christ. God's word is full of encouragement to us. Don't give up, press on, fight the good fight, finish the race, run the race set before you, don't grow weary in doing good. There are all kinds of phrases to motivate us to the task of r' developing and living lives that are holy and pleasing to God. God is faithful. Philippians 2:6 says, "He who began a g,o l work in you ,will carry it on to completion until the day of Jesus Christ.' ls life wearing First Baptist Church By Kelley Spence Last Sunday our Pastor Albert May brought us the message tiffed, "Getting Ready to Run with the Horses." The Scripture passage used was from Romans 4:18:21. We've got it all wrong you know. Because it's not about praising GOd when everything is going your way, but it's about praising him when nothing is going your way. In other words it's about trusting in his sovereignty and love. GOd had made a promise to Abraham and Sarah that they would have a son. The problem was their ages. They were well past their prime for childbearing: Way past their prime for childbearing. But this fact did not shake Abraham's faith. Human reasoning would say that it would be impossible for Abraham and Sarah to have a child of their own, but God had given his word to Abraham and he believed him in spite of his circumstances. As he considered the situation he praised God and gave glory to him even though it looked like nothing was happening that would bring his promise to pass. Surely he must have repeated to himself over and over again the promise of God as he waited for it to become a reality in his life. Let us follow Abraham's example. When nothing seems to be going our way. When it looks like the promise will never come to pass. When all things seem impossible. We too must praise God in the midst of the trial and repeat to our selves that our God is faithful to his word and He will perform it as he has said. What is your circumstance just now? Praise him and repeat his promises. May your heart be filled with faith, as you trust him until he brings a turn around in your situation. We invite you to come and join us as we worship the Lord together each Sunday. Our Sunday morning services begin with Sunday school at 9:30am and our Worship service begins at 10:45 a.m. Sunday Evening services begin at 6:00pm. Wednesday services begin at 6:30 p.m. Please come and join us. We have a place just waiting for you. you down? Are you struggling with motivation to keep going? Don't give ,up.
