GREETINGS FROM THE TEMPLE …
“It Begins with The Win!”
Our Pastor Victor S. Brice is taking us through a series of teachings on winning. We will win because we are on The Team. Which team? God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are The Team. When in battle (conflict) the best place to be is on The Team. There will always be conflicts. i.e., Military conflicts between states or nations. Social conflicts between groups, organizations, communities. Personal conflicts between families, marriages, friends. Military, social, and personal conflicts may lead to death, physical disabilities, and/or mental health disabilities. Stress, anxiety, depression, and financial trouble are also contributors.
Thank God for The Team! Thank God for the win!
“For the Lord your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.” – Deuteronomy 20:4 (NIV).
“We can credit God for our winning. We get the ultimate win over sin, over shame, over death.” – Pastor Victor S. Brice
It doesn’t end with the win. After the win, your servant work begins.
Time to go to work! Well, actually, it is time to serve! It is time to do what all good servants do, serve the Lord and others. Serve a little – serve a lot. Serve in a big way – serve in a small way. It doesn’t matter. Let your serving begin after the win.
“Because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.” – 1 Corinthians 15:58c (NIV).
Hearing the word, labor, may make you think of hard work, or strenuous work. This is not the case when you labor in the Lord. When you labor in the Lord you are using His strength for His purposes. Your labor is not meaningless nor is it worthless because God gives it meaning and He gives it worth.
Be steadfast, dedicated, and loyal as you labor. Pray for guidance and follow His instructions as you use your God given gifts to serve. This is a win-win – this is how it begins.
