Pastor Joe Johnsick’s Faith Food
Faith Food I Can See!
Today Pastor Joe opens up a bit on a subject...actually the better word is "reality"...that in his experience too few Christians even consider. The Apostle Paul regularly discussed the dynamics of an "outer man" and the "inner man". Simply put, there is the part of you you saw in the mirror this morning getting out of bed, white tongue and bed head hair, and then there is the "real you" that will live forever. More than anyone, Paul understood not just this reality, but the science of understanding how to live totally aware of the "skies the limit" potential living inside us where Christ is. Today Pastor Joe starts a discussion on these things. Pastor is really happy with this installment. We know you will too. Enjoy and share!
Time To Eat
Pastor Joe had such a great time with God earlier today that he thought it would be a good idea to make a "Faith Food" video out of it. Many would ask: "Which is the right religion?" Answer: None of them. The ultimate dilemma facing mankind has never been about religion, but matters of our core. The essence of who we are and where that originates. Well, the Gospel of John deals with these things in greater detail than the others. Statements of Jesus in His essence, and how His Person and nature works within us are thoroughly described in John's gospel and without these things, there's a whole lot that gets messed up. Check today out. We know it will answer some questions and bless you real good!
Faith Food Teaser
As promised, Pastor Joe is gonna keep "Faith Food" episodes coming regularly. This one is a "teaser" to get us to watch this past weekends service when we get it online after editing. It was astounding, to God be the glory. There is important information, and then there is CRITICAL information. In this series concerning the Kingdom of God, this past weekend we mined and discovered critical information on which the Kingdom of God is based and which we must understand if we are going to favorably benefit from it. Pastor Joe is trusting that this quick episode, which is full of enough good stuff on its own to keep you thinking for weeks, will inspire you to check out the service when we get it posted. Enjoy and keep an eye open!
Faith Food The Kingdom
"Faith Food" with Pastor Joe is back! Alot has been going on since Pastor took a break from his regularly posts. We've gone from arguing over masks and and social distancing, to cities being vandalized and in flames. It seems what is "right and wrong" is no longer in style and it is apparent that in many areas, we are in a free fall. Well, as always with God, there is good news! Today's "Faith Food" sets the stage for a new series not just on social media, but at church as well. The Kingdom of God supersedes all other powers. Its resources are unlimited. It's only a matter of learning how! And as Pastor has been reminding us, "Available is not the same as automatic!". This upcoming series is crucial to our overcoming not just adversity, but being a relevant voice to our generation. They need help. And we have the means of providing that through the Kingdom of God. Enjoy and see you Sunday!
Open Up Time! Churches get to open their doors. A few quick comments on how that will work at GHCC. Secondly, I talk a bit about a new 6 week video life group/ study I am going to start called "Bring It On!". No subject off limits. You got questions, we have answers! Atheist to Mother Theresa and everyone in between, let's talk and critically reason. God's not afraid of your questions or doubts. Just do both of you a favor and take the time to investigate what is so. Can't wait!
God is God. There's only One and He is without competition. And when pushed, He will get in our face over it if necessary. It's His prerogative by the way as...well...God! The history of His interactions with people clearly demonstrate that His children should have the same "attitude". It's not about being obnoxious, but loving truth with such passion that there is no compromise in word and action. Daniel is a great mentor on how this is done. Check today's Faith Food out to see how!
All of us know what it is to feel let down and disappointed. To have even the greatest intentions, and yet nothing seems to work out. We can feel let down by God, our loved ones, our bosses, our Pastor, our 401K ...Well, we're not alone. The Lord's greatest heroes went through the very same things and spoke in depth on how they handled their disappointments. Here is a primer to what we are going to talk about Sunday.
When I was raising my children I would say: "We are all going to have regrets in life. But do your best to keep them to a minimum!" This covid crisis we are in will end soon. And life will do what it always has...return to normal. As terrible as this season is, we all should have taken advantage of the down time, so to speak, and be able to walk away as better parents...spouses...people...Christians. That is of course if we do not waste the time. That would be "regrettable".
