A message from the Fountain...

So here's my new thing :)

I'm trying to keep my Sunday’s very grounded and clear, as it is a day of rest. Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday is one of the things that help keep that going, as well as the melodious tunes of Order my Steps station on Pandora. I think an important part of going to church, at least for me, is reflecting on the word so that I can find out how God wants me to apply it to my life. This lead me to start blogging about the message from whatever church I attend, currently Fountain Chapel A.M.E in Tallahassee, Fl under Pastor Marque D. Woodard. But I am a member of Mt. Siani Missionary Baptist Church in Orlando, Fl. 

A message from the Fountain…

The power to change the world            

Matthew 28: 18-20
Jesus, undeterred, went right ahead and gave his charge: “God authorized and commanded me to commission you: Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life, marking them by baptism in the threefold name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Then instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you. I’ll be with you as you do this, day after day after day, right up to the end of the age.

The message today was about being a disciple for Christ and realizing that he gives us the power to create other disciples for God through HIS NAME.

Steps to become a disciple…

1.Operate under the authority of Jesus
- God has given us his son so that we may receive salvation.
- Jesus is a friend that you can call at 3am and he will comfort you with no hesitation.
-In the name of Jesus you can move, see, and create and marvelous things that you could have never even known without him.

2.Realize it is not about YOU.
- Say you name…now say Jesus name, there is POWER in the NAME of Jesus, not in you.
-Popularity, prosperity and recognition should all be in the glory of God and not personal gain.
-Who are you and I but sinners in the eyesight of the lord? Be at peace with all of Gods people he created us equally.

3. Teaching goes beyond church
-We must touch the people that do not come into the house of the lord with the message of the lord.
-We should have endless love pouring out of our hearts even for those who have done us wrong or who we do not know.
-Teaching and preaching reaffirm the things we have learned.

This Sunday’s message meant to me that I must always have my heart and mind focused on the mission of creating disciples and being a disciple of Jesus Christ, so that temptation, destruction, and adversity may not throw me off the path to my divine purpose. As the pastor would say, “Making Jesus look good everywhere I go.” God Bless You. Happy Sunday :)
