In Romans 12:15, we are exhorted to, “Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep.” Right now, many of our Christian brothers and sisters are weeping as our nation struggles with racial divide. Recently, my friend Tony Clark hosted a panel discussion about race & justice. With Tony’s blessing, we are sharing this event with you here and I invite you to tune in as we seek to listen, learn and love.
For those of you who missed it, here is the video from our Prophecy update.
As believers, we need to be made aware as to where we are in regards to the second coming of Christ. The Bible tells us, “For you yourselves know full well that the day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night. While they are saying, “Peace and safety!” then destruction will come upon them suddenly like labor pains upon a woman with child, and they will not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that the day would overtake you like a thief; for you are all sons of light and sons of day. We are not of night nor of darkness; so then let us not sleep as others do, but let us be alert and sober” (1 Thes. 5:1-6). We need to be aware!
Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good;
Celebrate His lovely name with music.
Psalm 135:3 NLT
Praising the Lord is an act of worship. As Christ-followers we are to praise the Lord because He is good, not necessarily because of all the good in our life. However, in some seasons there is a sweet ease to rejoicing in all that God has done and is doing. Over the last 10 years God has multiplied our church family and on July 4, 2017 we celebrated His work at Reliance Church!
