Don’t Settle for Convenience - Win the Day

Don’t Settle for Convenience

Air Date: 4/14/21 - Isolation and loneliness are far from what God had in mind for His people, yet that’s what happens when convenience overshadows community. Today Pastor Nat urges you not to settle, but to experience God’s plan for worship, fellowship, and encouragement!

Thanks, Joey! Great words and encouragement for the body!
Hey Debra. I moved to Columbus, Ohio in my early 20s. Finding a church was hard. I was always comparing it to my home church. God has the right body for you out there. I pray you find it quickly. Until then and hopefully after, we are thankful to have you here with us!
I love to make the move, that get every one moving.
Hi Debra - We are praying for you!
Joey, my Brother I'm Christ. I did see your comment to me the other day in one of Arnies teachings. Thank you so very much for your words. You are such a sweet person and have a way of making other's feel good about themselves! God Bless You!!!! 🙏😇🙏 I see that you are asking people if they received your reply. I guess I'm just curious because in my (Daily Teachings Back to the Bible) shows me the series of things I am following... some of the things aren't in that direct email, and I get another separate email, BUT what dirs show is if someone replied to a comment I made on ALL MY GO TANDUM things I am involved with!! It's an awesome feature because it let's me know that I just need to go back to that particular day/ reading and look at the comments!! 😀 It makes me feel good, because I'm assuming if I get these notifications, than others do as well so they know I replied to them!!! Have a Peaceful Day, my friend! 😇🙏😇🙏
Carolyn my sister in Christ Jesus I left you a message on your post the other day I believe it was on Arnie's video. I pray you were able to see it. God Bless You my sweet friend and sister in Christ Jesus.
Debra my sister in Christ Jesus, please remember "we are The Church. Did you read Pastor Nat devotional today? Please take time to do so. Father I humbly request that You would please lead Debra her family to find that true building that is of You Our Savior Jesus Christ. Let them feel Your Presence when they Walk into that building to know that is the one building filled with true servents of You OH Lord Our God. Thank You Father for accepting my request as I surrender it all to You in Jesus name Amen
42 And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers. 24 And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, 25 not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching. As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.” - John 15:9, KJV God is the ultimate example of love, with Jesus Christ and his sacrifice to bring us eternal life offering a stark reminder for us to ensure we love others with the same fervency. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.” - 1 John 4:11, KJV 1 John 4:11 builds upon the importance of loving others, reminding Christians that God’s love for humanity is so powerful that it should be our own standard in our relationships and treatment or others. Heavenly Father Blessed Be Thy OH God, Please Father remind us each new day we are to lead and do all things with The Love of Jesus Christ. Father Forgive us when we forget we are to become more like You not lead us Father in Thy Ways, Path, Truth and Light in Jesus Mighty name I Pray Amen Pastor Nat Thank You for your reply to my post yesterday. If you have time please read my devotional from Your's today. God Be with You always.
Awwwww God bless you Natasha!
Since we have relocated to our temporary location, we are praying to find a church ...
Thank you Pastor Nat.
Amen. It's time to rejoice together and worship, even if only two or three together. Glory to our Father in Heaven and to our Lord Jesus, Hallelujah!!! Amen! 🤗☕
Let's not forget that the church strengthens us in our faith in God when things "go south". That is the purpose of the body of Christ ~ to encourage us and edify us! Thank you Pastor Nat.
Good word brother
It is great to have this online community and nothing compared to the physical connection we can experience. Glad you are here.
Being part of the local body is so important. I’m glad you’ve stayed connected through it all.
So great! Thank you for sharing! Have fun!
Thank you Pastor Nat. We've been attending church in person since we got our vaccines. Today I'm going to go and clean the yard of a person who has health condition that he can't do yard work anymore. I do pray that I can be Jesus disciple to him.
Shirley, I'm so happy that you are finding your church community again. I've been going back to church, since ours opened in June, but I understand what you are saying, watching my church virtually, I felt so alone and just didn't feel the love of gathering together. May you truly experience the Joy of going back to church physically!!! It's fun and I know you'll love it!!! Enjoy my sister in Christ!!!😇
That was beautiful. It's funny our church opened around June 15th and I have gone every week since. In fact during this pandemic it was one of the only things I looked forward too. Of course a lot had changed in my church due to rules and regulations... but those of us who went adapted. Through this time I feel like a new church family had been created because different people came to church!! It was kind of neat actually. 😇 I pray that all of you who want to go back to church physically have the strength and motivation to make it happen!!! May God Bless You All!! In Jesus's name I pray. Amen 🙏💕😇💕🙏
I can totally relate to this message. I just began going back to church in person last month. During my time of online watching, I felt a huge void. I was truly missing in petson gatherings. I didn't realize how much I missed and needed the in person worshipping with my church family. I thank God that even though we are in a pandemic, we still have the ability to worship together.
Thank you.
