Dear FPC Family,
Michele and I are so excited to be back with all of you after an amazing time of refreshing and inspiration at the annual Hillsong Conference in Sydney. I am so grateful to all the godly communicators who shared the Word in our absence. How blessed we are to be a part of God’s church called Faith Promise!
If you were traveling and missed any of our last series, Kingdom Come, I urge you to go online and get caught up. In it we were reminded to, “seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness,” and live in a way that is Kingdom-minded, not worldly-minded. Our new four-week series, Religious People Ruin Everything, is going to be a great follow up to those messages.
When you hear the word, “religion,” what comes to mind? Maybe some things that aren’t very positive! The Bible clearly reveals that Jesus’ true purpose for coming to this earth was not to start a religion but “to seek and save that which was lost.” Too many times religious people have ruined the reputation of the church, keeping countless souls from coming to the saving knowledge of our Lord and Savior. How sad! In this series we will examine our own personal lives and learn how to avoid becoming just another religious person. We must not be so caught up in religion that we dismantle what our Lord and Savior came here to do! We must beat the rap of religion or we will become Religious People and Ruin Everything.
Come on, Faith Promise, let’s join together in love – not judgment – and be a light for the Gospel of Hope to so many who desperately need it, especially now! I can’t wait to see how God will move through these next several weeks!
Love to you all,
