From the Pastor's Desk

The Scriptures say that "Jotham became mighty!" All of us should be believers God would characterize as "Mighty in the Lord." We're not talking about Mighty Mouse or Mighty Morphin Power Rangers! What do you think this "mighty" means? "Mighty" means 'strong,' 'potent,' 'forceful,' and 'vigorous.'

We are commanded to be "STRONG in the Lord and in His mighty power" (Eph. 6:10). This means mighty in the Holy Spirit. We're to be POTENT - like salt in the world, like yeast penetrating the whole lump of dough. We are to be Concentrated and Pure. We are to be 'Forceful' - (Matt. 11:12) "The violent take it be force" or "They that know their God will be strong and do exploits" (Daniel 11:32). We are to be Powerful and Influential. We're supposed to be 'VIGOROUS' - throwing off the world's influence and vigorous to pull down strongholds, and turn the world upside down! We need to have the Life of God percolating in our lives!

That Jotham was Mighty is seen by the fact that he rebuilt and extended Jerusalem and the Temple of the Lord. He fought against Rezin of the Aramaeans and Pekah of Israel. He defeated the Ammonites and received a massive tribute. He was the progenitor of Jesus Christ, listed in Matthew's Gospel.

Are you willing to prepare your heart to hold fast to God? Will you allow God to make you "STRONG in the Lord and in His mighty power" (Eph. 6:10). Will you be 'POTENT' for God by being like salt in the world? Will you be 'FORCEFUL' for God by being strong and doing exploits? Only as you let the power of God flow through you will you be 'VIGOROUS' - throwing off the world's influence and vigorous to pull down strongholds, and turn the world upside down!

As we are entering a new year, let's determine to be strong in the Lord!

Pastors Tim & Katrina

Most of the time, I just share out of the overflow of what God is speaking to me. But occasionally, there is a need I see in the church or at least in the lives of many people, whom I love. Would you
