A Testimony for God


"And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony." Revelation 12:11 (KJV)

When we are Sanctified, or have the Spirit of the Lord in our hearts, we have a testimony of what God has done and is doing for us in our lives. What does it mean to have a testimony for God, whether it is a one on one conversation or in a public setting like a church service?


Many of us are shy or slow to reveal something as personal as the details of our relationship with God, but perhaps there is a responsibility to share our testimony of what God had done for us. Jesus said in Matthew 10: 19-20, to "take no thought on how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak. For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you". With the Holy Spirit, we are not alone in sharing our experience.

Jeremiah 18:6


    This past weekend our congregation dedicated all of it's time and effort to the youth of our church. The weekend was filled with "Christ-centered" activities, bible study, and church services geared towards uplifting and strengthening the youth of our church. The theme of the weekend was "let a Christ-like spirit everywhere be found," which was truly the case...it was a wonderful weekend!

    To end the weekend, Sunday morning's service included a special song written by the attending youth and a spirit-filled sermon by Sister Claire Simons from Martinez, Ga. The subject of her sermon was "yielding yourself to God," was directed to the young people, but was appropriate for all ages. The key scripture of her sermon is found in Jeremiah 18:6...O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the Lord. Behold, as the clay is in the potter's hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel. God can only shape our lives if we remain "pliable" clay in His hands, so He can make our lives a vessel that will honor Him!

What a great sermon and wonderful weekend! Gob Bless!

1 Peter 3:8


We serve a compassionate God who is gracious, and who extends great mercy and forgiveness towards all mankind. God expects us to likewise show compassion and kindness to our fellow man as we walk the road of life.

1 Peter 3:8 "Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous..."

Freedom in Jesus Christ


As we celebrate Memorial Day, may we all stop and truly appreciate the many freedoms and liberties we enjoy in our great nation.  This way of life we enjoy was not won without a price.  Many have given the ultimate sacrifice that we may live in peace and freedom.  One of those freedoms is to worship and serve the Lord Jesus Christ without the threat of a hostile government.  All of us have the freedom to read the Holy Bible, attend church, pray, and spread the good news of salvation.  What a blessing!

The many freedoms we enjoy by living in the United States are wonderful!  However, there are many who live in this great country yet are still in bondage to sin.  So the good news on this Memorial Day is that Jesus Christ has paid the price for our redemption from sin by giving his life on the cross.  Although I am very thankful to those who have won our countries freedom, I am most thankful for Jesus Christ and the sacrifice he gave that we all can be truly free!

Have a great week and pray for all those who protect our country!

Abiding in the Lord


The Lord Jesus Christ described our relationship with God as a farmer growing fruit (John Chapter 15). Jesus said that he was the “true vine” and that we are the branches that grow on that vine. To be successful Christians we must stay connected to the true vine and allow God to shape us and work with us on a daily basis.

In John 15, Jesus uses the word “abide” seven times. He said in verse five “He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit…” To abide means to remain stable or fixed, or to continue in a place with patience. As we stay patiently connected to this true vine we receive the life-sustaining nutrients from God that we need to grow and bear fruit for him. Jesus also warns us in verse 6 that if we do not abide in him that our branch will be removed, and that we will wither and die. God’s will for us is that we “abide” in his love (verse 10), and that we experience a “full joy” in serving and fellowshipping with Christ Jesus verse 11).

Are you connected to the “true vine” today? I encourage you to get connected and to stay patiently connected to Jesus Christ. Allow God to to work with you, to correct and to purge you, and to bless you with his wonderful love and joy.

Brother Glenn Copeland
