Golden Valley Christian Church






            Making excuses for not doing God's will is certainly nothing new.  Moses is a prime example of trying to avoid God's will.  When God was ready to bring the Israelites out of Egypt, He chose Moses as the man to lead them.  However, Moses came up with one excuse after another to avoid this request until God became extremely angry with Moses.  We still have the same God.  The Bible tells us God is longsuffering, but if He got angry with Moses, He can get angry with us.




            Last Saturday, several attendees of the Golden Valley Christian Church shared part of their day to clean, paint, and tidy the building and grounds of the church.  Just imagine how pleased the Lord is with people who put Him first.  Also, thanks to those who give of their time and talent to decorate the church building so beautifully.  There is no doubt God sees these deeds.




            Bro. Tim's message was entitled "How to Have One Aspect of Joy."  We need to 1) stay faithful, 2) be loyal to the church, and 3) leave a legacy.  Our church becomes our spiritual family.  A growing, healthy church makes us all feel well.  We should leave a legacy, for our children, of spiritual faith.  Having a lot of worldly goods does not necessarily make us happy.  True joy and peace can only come from the Lord.  God wants to bless us, so we should ask ourselves if what we are doing is pleasing in God's eyes.  If not, we need to make some changes.




            The Bible challenge question is:  "What was one of the principal beliefs of the Sadducees?'"  (Acts 23:8)
