But truly, as the LORD lives and as your soul lives, there is but a step between me and death. - 1 Samuel 20:3
Christ is all anyone can have. We have nothing apart from Christ and the work He did on the cross imputed to us. All else is stripped away at death.
At last years conference Tim exhorted the brethren that some of us may not be there next year. During the very next year Bob Jennings at 63, and Ayla Petteruti at 23, went to be at home with the Lord.
This is a sobering message that Bob gave to his church this past Sunday. Please keep praying for Bob, the cancer, which he has known about for two years, is getting worst.
Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord. So whether we are at home or away, we make it our aim to please him. - 2 Corinthians 5:8-9
Michael Clarke died of cancer on January 14, 2012, just over a year after truly being saved by the Grace of God. These are some short clips from his wedding that was over a month ago, and the testimony that he gave at Grace Fellowship Manchester a year ago.
Tim asks Bob the question "If you could live your life over again how would you live different? Bob talks about having a clear conscience and the utmost importance of such. Tim also asks Bob - "I have heard you pray for twelve more years, if the Lord gave that to you what would you do with that time?" Bob also expresses the great need to know the Word of God and to memorize more of the bible. Colossians 3:16 - Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.

What happens to children when they die? Do they go to heaven or hell? How old is someone who has no excuse?
What can we learn from Michael Jackson's Life and Death?
We MUST suffer as Christians, it is a guarantee. When we do suffer willingly for Christ, it proclaims to the world that Jesus is more valuable than, health, success, and all other passing things in the world. Oh let us strive to make Christ our treasure! Indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted - 2 Timothy 3:12
QUESTION: Hi pastor, i have a real concern about what Jesus said to his disciples, "he that is not willing to deny himself, take up his cross and follow me cannot be my disciple" I see so many Christians buying luxurious cars and living in mansions, treating themselves with every pleasure that this world can offer and it seems as if there is no conviction or even thought about what Jesus said to his disciples.Can you please clarify or explain what does it mean to deny yourself and take up your cross?and deny yourself what? What was Jesus talking about?
