Dear Friends and Family (Ohana):
I was watching an “oldie, but goodie” T.V. show on a station called MEtv! I thought, “Wow, even my television can get selfish – ME, ME, ME…T.V.”
If not careful, our attitude can sometimes get that way with God – “Bless ME!” We go to church to see if God will bless ME; heal ME; make ME feel good. If we God doesn’t bless ME, then we do what I did with my remote control – I changed the channel. We change church, we change relationship, and we go so far as to change to other gods.
We need to do like David. Instead of “God, Bless ME” – David TOLD HIS SOUL “BLESS THE LORD, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless His holy name…BLESS THE LORD…” (Psalm 103:1&2). David didn’t ask his soul “Do you feel like blessing the Lord today?” No, he told his soul – “Bless the Lord…”
When it comes to blessings - it’s not all about blessing ME, but all about blessing HIM; and sometimes, we need to TELL ourselves to do that!
BREAKING “BABY” NEWS! Finally!CONGRATULATIONS to our awesome Worship Director, AUSTIN TIALAVEA, and his wife JOJO! They welcomed their first baby “boy”, named “Ax”…early Monday morning, July 30th. I don’t know the details, but from the photos…Ax looks really healthy!
PASTOR JONATHAN LORD will be making his debut at this week’s WEDNESDAY NIGHT SERVICE! His message is titled “THIS IS WHERE YOU BELONG”. Don’t miss it! Then…
On Sunday, I’ll be opening a NEW Message Series called “LIVE LONG & PROSPER”! Invite your friends and family closer to Jesus!
CHANGE YOUR WATER, CHANGE YOUR LIFE! It’s not just water, it’s “what kind of water” you drink. Not all water is the same, just like not all gas you put in your car is the same. It’s not just the quantity of water, it’s the quality of water you drink. Our church has a Kangen 8 “water ionizer” that produces freshly filtered, ionized, alkaline, and micro-clustered water! Get 8.5, 9.0, or 9.5 Ph level at our Hospitality counter before and after services. “Micro-clustered”, means that the water molecules are smaller so that it is more quickly absorbed into your organs AND brings more oxygen into your blood system. Drink at least half your body weight in ounces EVERYDAY! NET proceeds go towards our church’s ADVANCE fund (which helps with building improvements, equipment purchases etc.)!
