Pastor Walter was speaking DIRECTLY to “ME” this morning at church!!! Yep, the message this weekend, August 15-16, 2015 at ABC (Anastasia Baptist Church) here in St. Augustine, FL sure struck a chord within me!!!
“FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT!!!” WHAT???!!!???!!!???!!! Who…”ME”??? FIGHT??? WOO-WHOOOOOO!!! I’m a fighter, alright!!! ALWAYS HAVE BEEN!!! ALWAYS WILL BE!!! DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!! If I am in it at ALL…I AM IN IT TO WIN IT!!! BAM!!! And…DOUBLE BAM, BAM!!!
I leaned over during the service this morning to inform my husband that I had “CHILLS”. God…was speaking to me. God…was laying His hand on me. I…FELT HIS PRESENCE!!! Hallelujah!!! The message at ABC is still focusing on Discipleship. The exact definition from our bulletin reads as follows:
“Disciple: One who has Faith in Christ, is being transformed by Christ, and is engaged in Christ’s mission.” That exact definition has been displayed at the top of our weekly bulletin for quite awhile now. I LOVE IT!!!
Bullet points for the service were as follows:
–Pick the RIGHT battle…FAITH.
1 Timothy 6:12
–Hold on, it’s the winning move!!!
1 Timothy 6:12
Sorry folks…a slight distraction as God hit the play/sing button inside my head again: “I’m a fighter. He’s a fighter. She’s a fighter. We’re a fighter. Wouldn’t you like to be a fighter too??? Be a fighter. Be, be a fighter. I’m a winner. He’s a winner. She’s a winner. We’re a winner. Wouldn’t you like to be a winner too??? Be a winner. Be, be a winner.” to the tune of the “Dr. Pepper” jingle!!! (Yep, I will go back and add this to the list of Jill’s Jingles!!! Ugh!!! I don’t remember where it’s at!!!) 🙁
–Stay in the fight until Jesus returns.
1 Timothy 6:13-14
GO TEAM!!! WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!
P.H.P., folks. People Helping People.
Give the BEST of yourself for “JUST” today…“EVERY” day!!!
ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!! AMEN.
