“Release the Bitterness”

At Tuesday Noon Bible Study, while reviewing our Sunday worship message, “The Root of Bitterness”, Rev. Seymore Brice gave us several noteworthy quotes pertaining to bitterness. “Bitterness and love cannot live together in the same heart – decide which one will stay – the other has to leave.” “Bitterness is contagious – discipline will stop the process.”  Question: “How do I remove the bitterness from my heart?”  Pastor Brice spoke from The Word.

  • Reveal your hurt
  • Release those who hurt you
  • Replace the hurt with God’s Truth
  • Refocus the past to the future
  • Reach out to help others – once you’ve been healed

Ephesians 4:31-32 tells us to get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger. Be kind to one another and forgive each other, just as God forgives you.

“Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.”  Luke 23:34 (KJV)   Follow Jesus’ example, ask God to forgive the person or persons who have hurt you.

God will free you from being held hostage by your bitterness. “Holding a grudge doesn’t make you strong – it makes you bitter.”  “Forgiveness doesn’t make you weak – it sets you free!”

“Do You Have the Right Attitude?”

During one of our Thursday night Bible Study conference calls Pastor Brice, teaching on “The Dangers of Disobedience”, said that the highest praise we could give our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, is “Yes, Lord!”  However, “You have to have the right attitude!”  The right attitude will keep you connected to God.

Read: Jonah Chapter 1 and 2 (Jonah disobeyed God and was swallowed by a fish.)

“Yes, Lord!”, would have kept Jonah connected to God. Disobedience will separate you from the Power Source. Obedience will keep you   Connected.  “Your attitude will affect your latitude.”  Don’t hinder God’s Power – Purpose – Peace – Presence! Stay with God!

Join us at The Temple! Be encouraged and spiritually empowered by the Word of God, with Pastor Victor S. Brice and his ministerial staff.

“You Can’t Do Christian”

“You Can’t Do Christian”

Pastor Brice was teaching from the subject: “Your Fidelity and Love for God” and made the statement: Be a Christian! You can’t do Christian!”  He was speaking from James 4:4-5.

He went on to say: “Christians are not better but, they are different. Stop trying to fit in where you don’t belong! Don’t be ashamed to be different!” 1 Peter 4:16 (KJV)

Be joyful that you can be called Christian, a distinguished name reflective of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. God gives grace to those who make the decision to follow Him. So, make the decision, follow Him – strive to be more like Him.

“Who do you Call When You’re in a Tight Space”

January 29, 2018






“Shut-up!”  Words spoken by Rev. Seymore Brice, during our Sunday morning worship service. Attention getting? Yes! Did a message follow this exclamation? Absolutely! His message: “Who do you call when you’re in a tight mess/place?”  – “God, Himself!”   Rev. Seymore went on to say: “Ask God to speak to you. Then, be quiet and listen, have a listening ear.”  (Proverbs 13:3)

Your tongue, although small, can cause a great deal of harm if allowed to run freely.  It may even cost your life, or someone else’s. This very powerful message included a total of 7 Sources of action needed in our Christian walk.  1) Wake-up!  2) Dress-up!  3) Shut-up!  4) Stand-up!  5) Look-up!  6) Reach-up!  7) Lift-up!

We welcome you to The Temple for related answers to the 7 Sources needed in your walk, plus much more, as you discern the Voice of God, hear His Voice, and follow His Instructions.

Meanwhile – Stay Connected!

“Putting the Fire Out”


January 26, 2018








Are you putting wood on the fire?  Yes, I’m talking to you! Now, you’re thinking to yourself: “I’m not trying to build a fire!”

 Pastor Brice has been giving a series of teachings on “Maturing Spiritually”.  Part of our spiritual growth is in knowing how to respond when pain/trouble comes. (1 Thessalonians 5:18).

God’s Will for us is to give thanks in all of our circumstances. All! Pastor Brice gave the analogy: When we Praise God during our pain/trouble “we are putting the fire out”.  However, when we

complain, mumble and grumble during our pain/trouble, “we are putting wood on the fire”. 

To keep that analogy going: Let’s all be Christian Firefighters and work on putting out fires, rather than adding fuel (wood) to the fires.  Meanwhile, stay Connected!

Get Ready – Get Set – Grow!

January 5, 2018





“Get Ready – Get Set – Grow!”

 Are you willing to let God do a new thing?  2018 is a good time to start your new thing: attitude – opportunity – position – quest – pursuit – journey.    (read) Isaiah 43:18-19

God wants to do a new thing in you.  He is making a way for you.  Pastor Brice shared with us that – “God majors in newness, it will work in your favor.”

 Get ready – clear your mind of all negativity.  Leave it open to Positivity, the Holy Spirit.

Get set – let go of old pain, old guilt, old attitudes, old things. You cannot experience the new while holding on to the old.  Leave your old baggage behind.   

Grow in the Word of God – God is your guide to renew and newness. Let God bless you!

Until we connect again, Grow!

Have a Good Day



December 20, 2017





How often are you greeted by someone with, “Hello!” …… (and then) …  “Have a good day!”?

Pastor Brice – “If God was not a part of your day – you didn’t have a good day!”


Meditate: Proverbs 3:5-6 and apply daily.  Oh yeah, “Have a good day!”
