GREETINGS FROM THE TEMPLE …
Pastor Brice gave a spiritual analogy during Sunday’s sermon for accessing our private worldly data vs accessing our spiritual data. In this 21st Century we store our private information on computers: bank accounts – creditors – charge accounts – bill paying activity – programs – correspondence, etc. However, we must select a username and a password to access it.
The key: you must remember your username and password in order to retrieve your information.
God treats everyone the same way. Your access to Him is granted by acknowledging that you’re a sinner saved by the Blood of Jesus. Username: Sinner – Password: The Blood of Jesus
“You’ll have access to an awesome experience. Access: the bread of life – living water – hope – life and life more abundantly.” – Pastor V.S. Brice
“But whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” – John 4:14 (NIV)
Our very approachable God wants us to have a relationship with Him. Therefore, He has provided easy access to Him. You can approach Him at any time and from anywhere. You don’t have to worry about a computer crashing – no cellphone service – or someone trying to steal your identity. He knows who you are.
“Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” – Hebrews 4:16 (NIV)
“God is faithful, loving, merciful. We have a forgiving God – a God of another chance. We’re sitting here because He is a God of another chance.” – Pastor V.S. Brice
Access! He is waiting on you to open that closed door of self. Let Him in! Stop fighting! Let the Blood of Jesus wash you clean – give you hope – life, and life abundantly – drink the living water! Secure eternal life! Connect with Jesus!
