Caring

Celebrate Recovery

Welcome to Faith Family Christian Center

A place where you can truly come as you are and be loved.

Whether you are investigating the claims of Christianity or you already have a strong and vital relationship with Jesus Christ, Faith Family is a place you can call home. We welcome a casual atmosphere where people are at home in a T-shirt and jeans or wearing their "Sunday go to meeting" best.

We believe that Jesus Christ has provided a way for people to live with peace and hope, even in a world where there seems to be neither . . . We would love to help you experience the hope that only He can give.
 

Come join us this weekend at Faith Family Christian Center
and discover the God you are looking for!

Psalm 119:173

May your hand be ready to help me,

for I have chosen your precepts.


Versus


Jeremiah 7:8

But look, you are trusting in deceptive words that are worthless.


In our readings this morning I see a contrast in the results of choices made. The Psalmist sees that there is a place of safety in choosing to obey the Word of the Lord. Jeremiah points to the judgement of God that is about to be poured out on a people who have chosen to believe what they wanted to hear rather than what God has said. The Psalmist understands that salvation and life are dependent on choosing to live according to the Word of God. The Jews in Jeremiah’s day felt that as long as the temple was in Jerusalem they could live any way that they wanted to. Jeremiah’s message is very clear, God is going to judge sin. It does not matter what popular opinion is, or what is politically correct, anything less than obedience to the Word of God will bring the judgment of God. It is not because God is vindictive and harsh – on the contrary – God says through Jeremiah

Jeremiah 9:24

but let him who boasts boast about this:

that he understands and knows me,

that I am the Lord, who exercises kindness,

justice and righteousness on earth,

for in these I delight," declares the Lord
.


God delights in dispensing salvation and grace – He delights in blessing people – however, people choose whether or not they are going to live under His blessing or under His judgment of sin. Consider the words of Robert G. Lee . . .


“Adam’s choice cost him Eden; Esau’s, his birthright; Achan’s, his life; Lot’s, his home and herds; Absalom’s, his father’s throne; Saul’s, his kingdom; the rich young ruler’s, the companionship of Christ. Judas lost his apostleship; Demas his discipleship. Pilate, Agrippa, and Felix chose wrong and missed immortality. Ananias’ choice fooled no one but himself. Caleb and Joshua chose well, while Jonah’s first choice nearly shipwrecked himself and the crew.

“Ye older ones, what would your answer be as a father, a mother, as a Christian leader, if, concerning our young people, God would say to you today, ’Ask what I shall make of these young people’? Would your answer prove you know how to choose the things that matter most?"—Robert G. Lee



May we choose to do His Word today . . . and everyday!
