Rejoice in Tribulations

Good evening! So, Pastor Steve took two weeks off to fill up his freezer with some elk meat. I, apparently, took three weeks off, because I completely forgot to post last week’s message! I apologize! Pastor Steve came back refreshed and ready to continue in his lessons in Matthew. To hear his message, simply click play on the audio player below. I’ve also included the Call to Worship and a list of Scripture references to help you.

Call to Worship
Ephesians 2:14-18
14 For he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups
one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility,
15 by setting aside in his flesh the law with its commands and
regulations. His purpose was to create in himself one new
humanity out of the two, thus making peace, 16 and in one body
to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he
put to death their hostility. 17 He came and preached peace to you
who were far away and peace to those who were near. 18 For
through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit.

Scripture References

Romans 8:29

Matthew 5:11-12

Hebrews 12:2

Acts 5:41

1 Peter 1:16

James 5:10-11

1 Peter 4:12-14

2 Corinthians 4:17-18

James 1:2-3

And, in case you missed it and/or wanted to remember it, Pastor Steve said that Satan’s 3 Ds are discouragement, doubt, and deceit. Watch out for those!

Thank you for your patience with my all-too-human forgetfulness. I pray you are blessed by this message and today’s message, which I will post as soon as I get the audio uploaded! 🙂
