Weekly Inspiration

Greetings from Pastor James,

     If the world says something is free, you can bet there will be a cost incurred somewhere down the road. As Christians, we don’t have to build beautiful buildings or be an important person of power to find refuge and healing in our Savior. We can always find comfort and healing in Jesus Christ. All we have to do is have faith. It does not cost us anything.  If you accept Christ, you will receive the gift of salvation. If you have faith, there will be healing in your life. Faith and obedience get in return; blessings, revelation and restoration.   No costs will ever be incurred down the road.    

     Read Luke 7: 1-17 

     The Jewish elders spoke on the centurion’s behalf. They said that “he loves our nation and has built our synagogue”. If the man loved the nation and its people enough to build them a synagogue, he had to have known that Jesus was their Savior. Just as the Centurion could order things to happen without being present, he believed that Jesus had the same authority over life and death. He believed Jesus could heal someone without being present.

    The soldier had never seen Christ. Yet he believed. He did not pay a doctor. He did not let doubt, pride or money get in his way. He was a humble man. He felt unworthy. He was humbled before the Lord. He knew money or power could not buy the power of God. The gentile soldier believed in the Messiah more so than did the people of Israel. And, the servant was healed. The servant was not healed because the Centurion loved the nation and built a synagogue. The servant was healed because of the Centurion’s strong unwavering faith.

     The power of God’s grace and mercy are not for sale.

     In our Old Testament reading, II Kings 5:13-19a: Elisha would not accept money to show that God’s favor cannot be bought.

     The power of God’s grace and mercy are not for sale.

     The world would love for us to sell out our faith for twisted truths, popularity and material things. The world creeps into our church. And, it is not our wealth or social status that saves us. It is our faith in God that saves us. In this troubled world, we do not need a large bank account, we need a Savior. Our faith in God is precious. It is more precious than anything this world can give. Hold tight to your faith. Do not waver. We must remember, we are a people separate and holy from the world. We are saved by the precious blood of Jesus. We are bought and paid for by His love. Don’t sell out to politics, false teachings or intimidation.

     The power of God’s grace and mercy are not for sale.

     This church is not for sale. If you are a child of God, tell the world you are not for sale. Don’t sell your soul or church to the ways of the world.

     Come worship at Living Water Christian Church. Hold on to God’s unchanging hand. He will lead you down the path of righteousness. Christians, remember, your heart belongs to Jesus and your heart is not for sale.

Blessings to all,

Pastor James Boyette
