Once again, Pastor Jim Pogue taught on Proverbs 29:18 which says: “Where there is no vision the people perish: but he that keeps the law happy is he.”  Each person was given a sheet of paper to write our vision down just as we did last week. Pastor instructed all present that our goal should forever be to love God with everything we have and our neighbor as ourself. Knowing that Jeremiah 29:11 says the Lord has a great plan for us to give us a hope and a future should keep all of us on track! God will take us where we need to be in our heart. You must seek the Lord with all your heart and when you do, you will find Him! Just as in a child’s hiding go seek game, the intent is to find the one hidden and so it is with God as He wants to be found by us! Say to the Lord when you find Him, here I am Lord, change me! Some of us grew up blessed and some of us did not. Sometimes we want to quit but don’t quit for when you seek Him with all your heart you will find Him!

In the hit movie: “The Help” you see a black woman taking care of a white child saying to her everyday: “You is smart, you is kind, you is important.” God says the same thing to each one of us that we are smart, kind and important! Others may say the opposite but God does not! When you seek the Lord you will find Him when you seek Him with all your heart. Look at what John 3:16 says: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him shall not die but have eternal life.” This verse tells us we are important to God no matter what! 

What was Jesus? He was a teacher and His first sermon centered on hearts! God says we are smart! He sent His Holy Spirit to to guide, comfort and instruct us! Why? Because we are smart, kind and important! Scripture says we have the mind of Christ and that makes us smart! In the Good Samaritan story we see love given. Each of the three people were on their way but the Good Samaritan stopped and showed love as there was a need. The Lord says how beautiful I am to Him and He is to me! He does this for all of us because He loves us! God sees I am important, kind and smart!

You may think to yourself I am in need, how can things work? God is God and when you seek Him you will find Him! He will remind you with His love forever and ever! Satan comes to take from you but tell Satan you are kind, smart, important and this is who God says I am! 

In the movie: The Help,” we see the black lady was despised, rejected and persecuted just like Jesus who was despised, rejected and persecuted. God the Father sent His Son to get us to this day and to tell us we are smart, important and kind. Do you have sin in your heart? Seek Him and you will find Him and He’ll set you free! When you find Him just as in the Hiding in Seek game you will run after Him!

Romans 8:31 says nothing can separate us from the love of the Father- even if I reject Him, He still loves me! Know that you are important, smart and kind!

Today we took communion and in doing so asked the Lord to reveal  exactly how much He loves us! Instructions went out to never take communion having unforgiveness in your heart towards anyone. We are to seek His love, forgiveness and mercy and write the biggest need we have today and pray over it.

South Texas Christian Center is on fire for God! We meet for Sunday morning Bible Studies at 9:30 and have church services at 10 a.m. On Wednesdays we meet at 7 p.m. for  Bible Study, prayer time and supper afterwards. All  of this takes place at the Kenedy Civic Center in downtown Kenedy, Texas. Visit us online at: www.stxcc.org
