Let's talk about life

There's a lot going on with us here at Freedom Life Grace Church. We can't fit everything into a service or Bible Study so we have made this blog available to you as a resource, inspiration, and amusement. 

Enjoy! Share! Repeat!

Recently, a Facebook friend posted an old clip from prominent megachurch pastor Creflo Dollar preaching about money. Even though the short clip was more than a decade old, it got a lot of responses– passionate reactions. I shared my thoughts on the clip and answered a few questions posed within the thread but quickly realized that this subject if far too complex for the short replies I was able to provide within the thread typing on my cell phone at red lights.
Victory
Scriptures: Romans 12:2
KEY POINTS:

1. Never allow a bad experience, a failure, a shortcoming, or a mishap to stop you from trying again. Just because it doesn't work the first time doesn't mean it won't work the next time.
2. There is always a blessing to be found in a bad experience, in any experience really.
3. In order to upgrade (transform), you've got to think differently.
Will Rucker • Church Development
I believe with my whole heart that this church - Freedom Life Grace Church - is going to lead the movement for a new day in Las Vegas. You know they call this city "Lost Wages." I kind of like that one. The Bible lets us know "the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 6:23) Imagine if Vegas became know all around the world for lost wages. Imagine if when people walk the strip, instead of seeing the stripped ladies, they see us - handing them a card that says, "Jesus stripped your sin." Or "The wages of sin got lost in Las Vegas."

Imagine if when people came to our city, the experienced the life and love of God. Imagine if our church was "the newest attraction in Vegas."

Scriptures: Genesis 2:15-17
Was the tree of the knowledge of good and evil actually two separate trees? Did it have two types of fruit? Genesis 2:16-17 records, "And the Lord God commanded the man, "You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die." From this passage the answer to my first question is apparently there is only one tree. It also doesn't record multiple fruits on the one tree. It's not like these modern trees that grow all types of different fruits from one plant.
Will Rucker • Christmas
When I see Christmas I see Jesus. I believe Christmas would be His most favorite time of the year. He would have adored the beautiful decorations, gift giving, all of the wonderful music, and families spending time together. Having a good time, and all of the other Christmas sentiments are all expressions of who Jesus is.

One day I was sitting in a worship service, minding my own business, when the Spirit of God just grabbed a hold of me. He gave me this book right there in that service.

Scriptures: Hebrews 8:1-13
One of the most self-serving misconceptions that religion has promoted is the notion that "God needs ME to reach others for Him." Central to almost every religion I have studied is the idea that God wants His followers to convert others to that brand of faith. We can all agree that Pepsi and Coke are basically the same thing, just different flavors, but when it comes to religion, my flavor is the only truth.
Understand that there is a difference between sharing God with others out of a personal desire for them to experience the good things you enjoy and being forced to make people know your God.
