Message for February 19: Is God in Your Business?

Blessings to you, family and friends of BBT.  Here’s this week’s update.

We had a small crowd last Sunday.  Some were sick and others had other obligations.  I hope you know we miss you when you’re not with us.  We love you and want you back!  Priscilla shared a moving lesson about leaving a legacy of God’s love behind us.  Pastor David spoke on properly handling our anger.  Check out the podcast if you missed the service.

This week, I have a question for you.  Is God in your business?  When you walk out the door of the church, does He come with you, or is He supposed to stay out of sight so you can go on with the rest of your life?  We know the answer to that question.  When we turn our lives over to Jesus, it’s a lifetime commitment.  We’re not just committing to go to church on Sunday, maybe give a little money once in a while, and maybe do something nice when we feel like it.  We’re committing to give Him everything!

That means that every area of our lives is subject to Him.  It doesn’t mean we need His express approval for every move we make.  He is gracious and merciful.  He loves us and gives us the freedom to direct our lives as seems best to us.  But we should never forget that He is God.  We should at least be asking Him to guide us in our decision making.  We must be willing always to allow Him to redirect us.  To presume that we know best is the height of arrogance and can lead to big trouble.  Our text will be from James 4:13-17.  I’m pretty sure I know the answer to this one, but ask Him if you should join us this Sunday.  🙂
