Welcome!  We're glad you found our website and encourage you to visit us for worship services and to hear what the Bible has to say to us today. You'll meet friendly people who love the Lord and love others.

Letting Go

One of the easiest things to say is also one of the hardest things to do. Letting go and letting God lead us through this life is a monumental decision. It requires trust that our Father in heaven knows best. It means we surrender and deny doing our will and make a commitment to turn our lives over to Jesus as Lord and follow Him. Letting go also takes wisdom because the old-inner man (or woman) for some reason thinks he/she can do a better job of running their life than letting go and letting God be in sovereign control. How silly!

When we become Christians, we let go of the idea of saving ourselves and let the blood of Jesus save us. We accept God’s grace through faith and we are buried with Christ in baptism. We will become much more mature in faith over the years if we continue to let God be in control. After all, our heavenly Father knows best!

The best decision you and I can make today should begin with the serenity prayer. The day will go better – much better – if we let go and let God. (By the way, the serenity prayer goes like this: God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.)

Read Philippians 3:1-16 and listen to Letting Go by Big Tent Revival.

Finally, my brothers and sisters, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things again is no trouble for me, and it is a safeguard for you.

Beware of the dogs, beware of the evil workers, beware of the false circumcision; for we are the true circumcision, who worship in the Spirit of God and take pride in Christ Jesus, and put no confidence in the flesh, although I myself could boast as having confidence even in the flesh. If anyone else thinks he is confident in the flesh, I have more reason: circumcised the eighth day, of the nation of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews; as to the Law, a Pharisee; as to zeal, a persecutor of the church; as to the righteousness which is in the Law, found blameless.

But whatever things were gain to me, these things I have counted as loss because of Christ. More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them mere rubbish, so that I may gain Christ, and may be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own derived from the Law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which comes from God on the basis of faith, that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death; if somehow I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.

Not that I have already grasped it all or have already become perfect, but I press on if I may also take hold of that for which I was even taken hold of by Christ Jesus. Brothers and sisters, I do not regard myself as having taken hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Therefore, all who are mature, let’s have this attitude; and if in anything you have a different attitude, God will reveal that to you as well; however, let’s keep living by that same standard to which we have attained.
