The Joy of Fellowship

Share

It is through loving fellowship that we all grow in Love and Knowledge and strength so that we may do His will and be pleasing to our Lord God.

 

As Christ centered believers who come together to praise, worship and fellowship both socially and spiritually in Christ Jesus that we are able to work as one body to do the great commission and spread the good news of the Gospel throughout all corners of this world. If you desire to grow and honor Christ…

 

We encourage you to join us in our social forums and perhaps even preach, teach or share your blessings with us as a blogger proclaiming Christ.

 

For it is through the spreading of His love and the love for all Christian believers even if we may have minor doctrinal differences that we glorify God and can unify the full body of Christ and prepare disciples and perhaps avoid becoming a casualty of deception in these end days.

Youth in Christ

Children, are they important? Who are they? Who will shape the future?

Children are the future, which means they are Very important. But do they shape the future or do their teachers shape the future?

God tells the Israelites in Deuteronomy,” “These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. “You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up. “You shall bind them as a sign on your hand and they shall be as frontals on your forehead. “You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.”

Proclaimers for Christ takes the raising of disciples and our future generation extremely seriously and is fully committed to provide our total support to all of the youth who keep Christ at the center of their hearts.

In His Service – P.U.S.H.

Share

A man was sleeping one night in his cabin when suddenly his room filled with light, and God appeared.  The Lord told the man he had work for him to do, and showed him a large rock in front of his cabin.

The Lord explained that the man was to push against the rock with all his might.  So, this the man did, day after day.

For many years he toiled from sun up to sundown, his shoulders set squarely against the cold, massive surface of the unmoving rock, pushing with all his might!

Each night the man returned to his cabin sore and worn out, feeling that his whole day had been spent in vain.

Since the man was showing discouragement, the Adversary (Satan) decided to enter the picture by placing thoughts into the weary mind:  (He will do it every time)!

“You have been pushing against that rock for a long time and it hasn’t moved.”  Thus, he gave the man the impression that the task was impossible and that he was a failure.

These thoughts discouraged and disheartened the man.  Satan said,  ”Why kill yourself over this?  Just put in your time, giving just the minimum effort, and that will be good enough.”

That’s what the weary man planned to do, but decided to make it a matter of prayer and to take his troubled thoughts to the Lord.  ”Lord,”  he said,  ”I have labored long and hard in your service, putting all my strength to do that which you have asked.  Yet, after all this time, I have not even budged that rock by half a millimeter.  What is wrong?  Why am I failing?”

The Lord responded compassionately,  ”My friend, when I asked you to serve Me and you accepted, I told you that your task was to push against the rock with all of your strength, which you have done.  Never once did I mention to you that I expected you to move it.  Your task was to push.  And now you come to Me with your strength spent, thinking that you have failed.

But, is that really so?  Look at yourself.  Your arms are strong and muscled, your back shiny and brown, your hands are calloused from constant pressure, your legs have become massive and hard.

Through opposition you have grown much, and your abilities now surpass that which you used to  have.

True, you haven’t moved the rock.  But your calling was to be obedient and to push and to exercise your faith and trust in My wisdom.  That you have done.   Now I, my friend, will move the rock.”

At times, when we hear a word from God, we tend to use our own intellect to decipher what He wants, when actually what God wants is just simple obedience and faith in Him.

By all means, exercise the faith that moves mountains, but know that it is still God who moves the mountains.

When everything seems to go wrong… Just P.U.S.H.

When the job gets you down…Just P.U.S.H.

When people don’t do as you think they should…Just P.U.S.H.

When your money is “gone” and the bills are due…Just P.U.S.H.

When people just don’t understand you…Just P.U.S.H.

P  =  Pray

U =  Until

S =  Something

H =  Happens

May God bless you in His Service.  Join Proclaimers for Christ and share, teach, preach and fellowship.

Real People

Share

Real People, Peo Reaple, Frontwards, Backwards, Run for the Mark.  Love the LORD and love your neighbor, serving GOD with gladness in your heart.  I penned these words 25 years ago for Real People Summer Camp when I realized that understanding ones own depravity (or sin) is the beginning of being real. When I realized just how insecure I was, and not only me, but everybody else too, then and only then did I begin to rest in Christ.  Knowing the truth has set me free to willingly and gratefully surrender to being HIS slave and as the song states; “love the LORD and love my neighbor, serving God with gladness in my heart.(Psalm 100).    Enjoy the Journey.

It is Well with My Soul

Share

Somebody posted this video on my facebook today and I was really blessed by it. I thought all of you might be blessed by it too. It is a song and video by Jars of Clay singing It Is Well With My Soul.

This song has a really neat history. Please read below for the history of this wonderful hymn.

This hymn was written by a Chicago lawyer, Horatio G. Spafford. You might think to write a worship song titled,
‘It is well with my soul’, you would indeed have to be a rich, successful Chicago lawyer. But the words,
“When sorrows like sea billows roll … It is well with my soul”, were not written during the happiest period of
Spafford’s life. On the contrary, they came from a man who had suffered almost unimaginable personal tragedy.
Horatio G. Spafford and his wife, Anna, were pretty well-known in 1860’s Chicago. And this was not just because
of Horatio’s legal career and business endeavors. The Spaffords were also prominent supporters and close
friends of D.L. Moody, the famous preacher. In 1870, however, things started to go wrong. The Spaffords’ only
son was killed by scarlet fever at the age of four. A year later, it was fire rather than fever that struck. Horatio
had invested heavily in real estate on the shores of Lake Michigan. In 1871, every one of these holdings was
wiped out by the great Chicago Fire.
Aware of the toll that these disasters had taken on the family, Horatio decided to take his wife and four
daughters on a holiday to England. And, not only did they need the rest — DL Moody needed the help. He was
traveling around Britain on one of his great evangelistic campaigns. Horatio and Anna planned to join Moody in
late 1873. And so, the Spaffords traveled to New York in November, from where they were to catch the French
steamer ‘Ville de Havre’ across the Atlantic. Yet just before they set sail, a last-minute business development
forced Horatio to delay. Not wanting to ruin the family holiday, Spafford persuaded his family to go as planned.
He would follow on later. With this decided, Anna and her four daughters sailed East to Europe while Spafford
returned West to Chicago. Just nine days later, Spafford received a telegram from his wife in Wales. It read:
“Saved alone.”
On November 2nd 1873, the ‘Ville de Havre’ had collided with ‘The Lochearn’, an English vessel. It sank in only
12 minutes, claiming the lives of 226 people. Anna Spafford had stood bravely on the deck, with her daughters
Annie, Maggie, Bessie and Tanetta clinging desperately to her. Her last memory had been of her baby being
torn violently from her arms by the force of the waters. Anna was only saved from the fate of her daughters by a
plank which floated beneath her unconscious body and propped her up. When the survivors of the wreck had
been rescued, Mrs. Spafford’s first reaction was one of complete despair. Then she heard a voice speak to her,
“You were spared for a purpose.” And she immediately recalled the words of a friend, “It’s easy to be grateful
and good when you have so much, but take care that you are not a fair-weather friend to God.”
Upon hearing the terrible news, Horatio Spafford boarded the next ship out of New York to join his bereaved
wife. Bertha Spafford (the fifth daughter of Horatio and Anna born later) explained that during her father’s
voyage, the captain of the ship had called him to the bridge. “A careful reckoning has been made”, he said, “and
I believe we are now passing the place where the de Havre was wrecked. The water is three miles deep.” Horatio
then returned to his cabin and penned the lyrics of his great hymn.
The words which Spafford wrote that day come from 2 Kings 4:26. They echo the response of the Shunammite
woman to the sudden death of her only child. Though we are told “her soul is vexed within her”, she still
maintains that ‘It is well.” And Spafford’s song reveals a man whose trust in the Lord is as unwavering as hers
was.
It would be very difficult for any of us to predict how we would react under circumstances similar to those
experienced by the Spaffords. But we do know that the God who sustained them would also be with us.
No matter what circumstances overtake us may we be able to say with Horatio Spafford…

When peace like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say,
It is well, it is well with my soul.

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ hath regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul!

It is well … with my soul!
It is well, it is well, with my soul
