New Jerusalem Baptist Church

The Church Where Everybody is Somebody and Christ is Lord  


Of November 11th, 2018

Scripture teaches us that Christ is sovereign, the King and Ruler over the entire universe. He sustains us; and we should consider each breath and heartbeat we take as a personal gift from Him.

God has truly done great things for us, first and foremost, giving His life on the cross of Calvary for us. Through His death and resurrection, Jesus saved us from our sin and its consequences. He is fully entitled to ask that we yield our life to Him.  And yet in His wisdom, He has still allowed us the gift of free will in our choice to follow Him.

So the question becomes, are you willing to put yourself and your desires aside in order to follow Jesus? Will you move away from form and fashion to fulfill His plan and purpose? While we will not always like everything He chooses at the moment, He promised and has kept the promise to work all things for the good of His children.

His way is best way, and it offers hope, joy, and peace. Will you trust God enough to hand the reins over to Him?
