Making Life Count Jesus said, “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” Friends the promise of Jesus is clear. He wants to give us abundant life. What does that mean? Abundant literally means to have a surplus or more than is really necessary or to live out to the full. I like that term because Jesus doesn’t want us to simply live but to have a life. I heard it said in a movie called “the way”, …”You don’t choose a life, you live one.” Over the next season of messages, we are going to discover what it takes to make life count. Too many people simply exist and really don’t live. For you and I, it can mean a great deal. But looking through the eyes of God can mean so much more! This is going to stretch us to appreciate the value of the Abundant Life Jesus promised in John. I want to offer my congratulations to Mike and Davina for being ordained into ministry on October 20th. It promises to be a special Sunday for two people we have grown to love and appreciate. Our special guest will be Rev. R. Baker from the P.A.O.C. It will be followed by a potluck. As we celebrate thanksgiving in October, let’s enjoy the splendor and wonder of the season upon us all…with much love and gratitude, PB and Kathy Inside Tony’s Mind

The BIG 10, the Sinai Code , the Decalogue, whatever name, the Ten Commandments are relevant today.

You may think that is a little off and I’m completely convinced and convicted. I believe that we find a glimpse of who God is, what He cares about , and how He still wants us to live. I also believe there are a couple misconceptions and things we say within our Christian circles. During our Bible Study with, now, Nichole Moser, God revealed to me about what it means when it says, “Jesus fulfilled the Law.” (To reserve space, read, Luke 24:44, Matthew 5:17-18, Romans 8:1-4,) Jesus finished/fulfilled what He came to do, to make things alive, to make this active. The big 10 is not only a symbol but a way for those who are set free to live free. The Old and New have always been about Jesus. With that foundation, we can go through the BIG 10 and see how relevant they are to us today. How He wrote it on stone and wrote it on our hearts that He has given us. Next month, `the first before the first` command. In this together, Tony Mejia

When we are a slave to our hurts, habits or hang-ups, we lose the right to choose any other way of life.

Step #1: HONESTY

Principle #1: We admitted we were powerless over our addictions and compulsive behaviors, that our lives had become unmanageable. John 8:31-32 states: “Jesus said to the people who believed in Him, ‘You are truly my disciples if you keep obeying my teachings. And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” Living in denial is living dishonestly. How many times have we lied to ourselves saying, ‘I can stop any time I want to!’ or ‘I have the right to choose how I live my life!’ or ‘my behavior doesn’t affect anyone but me!’ Ironically, as we asserted our freedom to live as we choose, we soon lose the freedom to choose anything other than our dependency; we become enslaved to it. The spiritual forces that sway our lives have root in either truth or deceit. Truth leads to freedom; deceit leads to bondage and death. Denial is a lie that keeps us in slavery. When we are a slave to our hurts, habits or hang-ups, we lose the right to choose any other way of life. It is only when we break the cycle of denial and become brutally honest about our bondage that there is any chance for real freedom. If you are looking a safe place to make a change in your life, then join us Thursday’s at 7 pm where we believe that healing comes in the sharing.
