Sunday Worship Experience
Life, liberty, and happiness comes only from God which are the basic foundations in the lives of Christians. As it states in John 10:10, “…I am come that they might have LIFE, and that they might have it more abundantly.” Galatians 5:1 states, “Stand therefore in the LIBERTY wherewith Christ has made us free…” and in Psalm 144:15 states, ” HAPPY is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the Lord.” So, when you are a follower of Christ, you will undoubtedly have life, liberty, and experience true happiness.
Today- you, too can be free and experience the “true” liberty in Jesus Christ. Will you join us today in our Sunday Worship Experience Service? You will be so glad that you did.
As public health concerns grow about coronavirus (COVID-19), we the staff at the Liberty Community Church of God in Christ are committed to informing our congregation, friends, family and the entire community with the latest information; we want to ensure to everyone that we are indeed handling the situation as best as possible.
According to the medical experts, this particular strain of the coronavirus, known as (COVID-19), is new; it may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes will possibly cause the spread from person-to-person.
For starters, “don’t panic”, we should handle this and any situation with prayer. As Jesus spoke to his disciples, “Why are ye fearful? O ye of little faith?” Then he arose and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm. Matthew 8:26
This is the lesson that Jesus wants us to learn/ understand that hysteria, and worry breads fear and anxiety. “God has not given us the spirit of fear but of power, and of love and of a sound mind.” II Timothy1:7.
It is no surprise to God when we are faced with difficulties, however, we should always remember that he sees all, knows all, and He will rebuke the plans of the enemy. “And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the Lord of hosts.” Malachi 3:11
So during this time of crisis, let us live in peace; peace in knowing that Jesus cares. “Casting all of your care upon him; for he careth for you. Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” I Peter 5:7-8
It is now the month of January and the manger scene is put away; many are returning back to work, and the decorations are slowly coming down, does this mean that Christmas is over? It depends on whom you ask. We may have read the Christmas story over and over from the Gospels of Matthew and Luke, but we rarely moved beyond that. We fell into the same trap as many, we talked about the baby Jesus, but we left Him in the manger. Here is the clincher; there is more to this Christmas story… what about the Wise Men who sought after the Christ child long after the manger/ nativity scene?
According to Matthew 2, it was after the birth of Jesus when wise men from the east came seeking for Him. According to Micah 5:2, they would find the new King in Bethlehem. As you know, the wise men did not have a map to guide them to Bethlehem, but they had something even better. God gave them a star in the east to guide them. So the wise men followed the star that led them right to Jesus. By the time they found Jesus, Christ was no longer in the manger but in a house. The Wise men (Magi) were overjoyed, when they saw the child and Mary; they bowed down to worship Him and presented Him symbolic gifts, of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
The Gold was an acknowledgment of a King and the right to rule; a person of importance/ royalty. He was the King of kings. Frankincense- Jesus as the sweet smelling savor… Ephesians 5:2 “And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us as an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savor.”
Myrrh was a gift of preparation and faith as described in Psalm 22; Christ’s, agony, death and crucifixion on the cross for the one to die- death – used for embalmment- prepared to wrap the body to be buried.
So in 2022, will you seek Jesus?
One of the most compelling invitations and profound promises given by the Savior is found in the simple phrase in Matthew 7:7 which states, “… seek, and ye shall find…” Wise men and women today are still seeking Jesus because He is so much more than a baby lying in a manger; Jesus wants us to “Draw nigh to God and he will draw nigh unto you…”James 4:8, and to those who diligently seek him, will surely find Him. Amen.
