Thursday Night Amplified

Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. 1 Peter 3:15

The most important words we can speak are ones that explain our faith to anyone who asks or who will listen. We must be able to give a reason for the hope we have within us. We have to pray that God will help us become bold enough to clearly explain our faith in God.

Last night was a great time of Worship, Bible Study and Fellowship at Thursday Night Amplified. The College Department has started a group that meets on Thursday Nights at 7pm to give an alternate meeting time over the traditional Sunday Morning Bible Study at 9:15... For some reason, college kids don't like to get up early on Sunday mornings... I can't imagine why?

We are studying the book of Ecclesiastes and it is amazing how relevant that book is to today's situations. Last night we talked about corrupt court systems... Anybody???? And how God allows us to be TESTED in our faith by choosing the right way out of a temptation. God will test us, but do not be decieved because God DOES NOT TEMPT us... That is from Satan alone... I hope that when you find yourself in a test by God, that you will pray for the guidance that only He can give us and choose the right way... He is so proud of us when we choose to live right. Have you faced a temptation lately? Temptations are an opportunity to do the RIGHT thing... Go out and find what YOUR right thing is today... I hope you pass the test!!
