God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think! But we have to do our parts as well! In his sermon, “God is Still Working On Me” (Philippians 1:6), Pastor Bridges taught us that God didn’t bless us or save us to be losers, but sometimes we have to lose to win. When you accept Jesus Christ as your savior and you start doing right, you are gonna lose unhappiness and gain joy and peace. You lose some bad habits, and you’ll probably lose some friends. Don’t let Satan use fear to keep you from walking in to what God has for you! Let Him keep working on you! It’s not too late to get a CD or DVD of either of the services, please contact Bro. Nathaniel Sarratt or one of the Audio/Video team members to get your copy today. If you don’t have a church home, we welcome you to join us this Sunday at 10am to see for yourself what God can do!
