"Their destiny will be according to their works." 2 Corinthians 11:15b (HCSB)
Destiny is a word that so many people misunderstand. Many think that it means fate, something planned for your future that you cannot escape. They believe that it is predetermined and that no matter what you do, you cannot escape it. Many world religions believe this and live their lives accordingly.But this is not true.
The Bible clearly states that destiny is something planned for us in the future. It is a plan that God has made that includes prosperity, safety and hope (Jeremiah 19:11). The Bible also tells us that our destiny is not set in stone. It can be changed and it can go unfulfilled. We either accomplish our destiny or miss it based upon 2 Corinthians 11:15b).
God has a wonderful destiny for you. Choose wisely.
Labor Day has come and gone and the church family has begun to settle back into our school year routine. This means that our full programming for families has begun. Be sure to check the church calendar to see all the opportunities that we have for you and your family. Children’s programs and choir are starting as well as Bible study classes for men and women. Look for a place that you can plug in to grow and make a difference for the Kingdom.
RightNow Media has already been a tremendous success. Over 500 families have activated their accounts and more than half of them have been regularly using RightNow Media. If you have not yet joined, let me encourage you to do so. The Bible teaching and devotions alone will bless your life. The children’s and youth material is priceless. The marriage and financial studies could save your home. Contact the church office if you have not signed in or if you did not receive an invitation from me to join. It will change your life.
Let me ask you to do something for me that I feel is vital to the future of our church. I want you to pray. I believe that prayer can literally shake the gates of Hell. I want you to pray that our church family will catch the vision of how important small group Bible study is to our church’s growth and future.
Small group Bible studies are not just another thing to occupy your time or to schedule on the calendar. They are tools to help our church family grow and reach out to the unchurched. I firmly believe that one of the most important ways for us to reach the lost around us is through small groups. Please pray that our church will catch that vision.
It has never been more exciting to be a member of FFBC. Come join us. See you in church,
