If you continue to obey my teaching, you are truly my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. John 8:31-32 (NCV)
We live in a world that seems to have many truths. Our culture, society, friends and family all seem to say that there are many truths. They try to convince us that as long as we sincerely believe and don’t hurt anyone, it is okay to practice whatever we consider to be truth. This is so wrong. Jesus tells us what real truth is. He said in John 8 that knowing the truth will set us free from the opinions of the world. He tells us in verse 31 that if we obey His teachings we have learned the truth. Real freedom comes by learning and obeying the teachings of Jesus. By doing so we have learned the truth and will be set free from the chains of this world. Pilate asked Jesus in John 18, “What is truth?” Jesus told him that “Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.” Who are you listening to?
What a great day in worship last Sunday. The music was wonderful, the congregation energetic, and the Holy Spirit was so active. Thank you church family for such a wonderful day of worship.
We kicked off a tremendous ministry last Sunday called RightNow Media. How would you like to have your morning devotion led by Max Lucado? How would you like to receive financial advice from Dave Ramsey? How would you like for your kids or grandkids to watch VeggieTales instead of the junk on TV? How would you like to have your small group meeting or daily Bible study led by Rick Warren, Bill Hybels, Andy Stanley, or Francis Chan? All of this is available to you if you are a Fee Fee member. You can access all of the above anytime and anywhere that you have an internet connection. RightNow Media makes this possible for all of our church family. All we need from you is your current email. If you did not give it to us last Sunday, please call the church office today. We want our members to have immediate access to the best biblical teachings and instruction possible. You can with RightNowMedia. We have great plans for this ministry in the future of our church.
Goodbye old friend. Last week we had the tree removed that sat next to our administration building. It was over 100 years old. Unfortunately, it had begun dying in the top branches. One of the limbs fell in a recent storm and punctured the new $80,000 roof over the Parlor. The Properties Committee did the right thing in deciding to remove the tree. Everything has a life span—including us. Some slabs were saved and we hope to display them.
Great things continue to happen at Fee Fee. Come join the excitement.
See you in church,
