Dear Friends and Family (Ohana):
Be honest. Don’t you love it when people do things for you? It makes life easier, because you didn’t have to do it yourself. When someone does something for you, you save time, energy, maybe even money!
Did you know that God wants to do things for you? He wants to make life easier for you. It’s not an excuse for you to be lazy, and not do anything. It’s God NOT wanting you to have to struggle unnecessarily; over extend, and burn yourself out. “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be DONE FOR YOU.” (John 15:7 NASB)
Notice, scripture says “…it will be done FOR YOU.” I like that part! But, some key words here are “IF”, “AND”, “ABIDE”. The word “If” is a conditional word. It means, you have a choice. “And”, means both needs to happen. The word “abide” means to “remain or stay”.
Bottom line: Remain or stay in your relational commitment in Jesus, AND make sure His words remains and stays in you. Then, all you have to do is “ask”; and, God will do “…for you”.
Reminder: NO WEDNESDAY NIGHT SERVICE (December 26)! Our staff, and team of servants will be resting up for our last Sunday Service of 2018! We want to start the New Year STRONGER!
At our SUNDAY SERVICE, December 30 – Pastor BAM shares a timely, and powerful message titled “Preparing For The New Year!” Invite your family and friends, and don’t miss what God has for you!
We’re slowly chipping away at our RESTROOM EXPANSION project: Let’s continue to pray and financially give towards the CONSTRUCTION PHASE! Together WE CAN get this done! As of this writing, we received $28,500! Please make checks payable to: NEW HOPE LAS VEGAS. On the memo line write: “ADVANCE”; OR you can give through our APP (scroll to “ADVANCE”). Thank YOU!
Also, as a friendly reminder: All financial contributions to New Hope Las Vegas are tax deductible. So, please make sure your financial giving (i.e. Tithes, Offerings etc.) are dated and received no later than December 31, 2018 for your 2018 tax purposes. THANK YOU for your partnership, and generosity towards advancing the Gospel of Jesus Christ! We couldn’t do it without you!
