FAKE BELIEF - CHANGING SHOULD NOT BE SO HARD!
Americans expect everything instantly! We have instant fast food, same day mail, faxes, satellite reception, etc. - we expect everything quickly. We want instant success, instant wealth, and instant beauty. We sit in front of a television quickly changing channels, and we think we ought to be able to change things in our lives quickly too. Fake beliefs are promoted in all kinds of advertisements: “Buy this product,” “Eat these vitamins,” “Use this exercise equipment,” “Read this book,” “Listen to this tape and you’ll be changed instantly,” “Guaranteed, overnight change.” Believing change is easy will surely cause you a lot of misery.
The truth is change is difficult, change is slow, and change is a process! This weekend, I will be sharing with you the process that God uses to change you.
The Bible says, in Galatians 6:9, “Let us not get tired of doing what is right, for after a while we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t get discouraged and give up.” And, Philippians 1:6 says, “Be confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”
When you get what I am talking about and you understand the process God uses, you can cooperate with it. It will save you much frustration and hours of counseling too!
Please join us for worship this weekend! We continue to follow recommended “social distancing” guidelines. Every other row of seats is closed off, and we ask that you put two empty seats between you and anyone not living in your household. If you are uncomfortable being in the Celebration Center, our weekend services are streamed live at www.thegraceplace.com/watch. You may also listen to each service live on FM 96.9 in our parking lot. We do hope you will join us this weekend for a great celebration - Saturday 6:00 p.m., Sunday 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. We look forward to seeing you in church!
