I’ve Got a Lot On My Mind

From a Child Perspective By Mackenzie Ware, 12 years old. ( This is what she received from Sunday message in her own words.

Mark 5:1-13
I’ve Got a Lot On My Mind.

People who aren’t like us are that way because Satan got to them before we could, but that doesn’t mean he can keep them because we have power, power that can get rid of the darkest demons we just need to believe. We push people away that aren’t like us, but if they have demons inside them worship is our weapon to push them away.
We tend to push people away who aren’t like us. Somebody who doesn’t speak the same language, that doesn’t have the same skin tone, we seem to just push them away because they’re not something we are used to. That’s why we need to be like Jesus because instead of pushing people not like him away he pulled them closer to help change for the better. We think people who don’t have the same religion as them are demons, but those are people just like you taking the wrong path, and that probably why they were brought to you. We Christians are on this Earth to tell the world about Jesus and convert toward the ways of the Lord, so we can’t push people away if they were meant to be pulled closer.
Our worship is our weapon. Wether we think it or not we all have power in us, but with that power comes responsibility. We can’t use all our power for ourselves because God gave it to you to help others, so we need to get out and fulfill what God has asked of you. Demons don’t worship because that is one of their, so for us their weaknesses is one of our many strength. Therefore if there is a person in need of directions towards heaven, we will direct them down the right path, and help them get to know him better along the way.
We have the power to get rid of any demons that try to come close to our neighbors and ourselves. Worship is our weapon, so let’s use it to pull people closer than to push them away.

NOTE FROM PASTOR:

It’s a new year and new start, it’s a new beginning. It’s a new day to think bigger, be bigger and expect bigger. With God all things are possible, Albert Einstein said, “Your imagination is preview of life’s coming attractions”. In this new year, if you can think it, God can do it. Pastor Gerald J. Mitchell.

I’m Down But Not Out

From a Child Prospective By Mackenzie Ware, 12 years old. ( This is what she received from Sunday message in her own words. )

Lamentations 3:16-26
I’m Down But Not Out

God will be with us through thick and thin and will love us no matter how bad we are, but we need to follow his every direction so we don’t have to experience his tough love. Don’t let God have to put you through pain and suffering to get you to understand what he wants you to do because he doesn’t enjoy hurting you, he loves you so much he willing to do anything to get you back no matter what.
God does not have to send you through hell and back to get you to realize what he trying to tell you. God tells us to do things but some of us are so stubborn that we rather do the complete opposite then what he says, but those things lead to punishment because you decide not to listen. God has all his children attached to him no matter what, so you can walk miles away from God but he can just tug you right back to him. We don’t need to fall away from God because any other path is the wrong way. We will always have God on our side we just need to be on his side.
God loves us with all his heart. Everyone commits a sin in there everyday life, and with every sin we stray further from God’s light, but he stays exactly where he is so we can come back to him anytime. But with sin comes consequences, and it can be from simply hurting your toe, to a cut in the skin, to a fatal injury. God might punish us, but in the end if we are on his side we don’t have to worry about going through any type of pain anymore. God has done much for us to show his love for us and will continue to show us love.
God will always love us until the end of time, so let’s continue to follow his path of light and goodwill. God has and will always love, so let’s not put him or yourself through any type of pain.

Merry Christmas Zion Family

Merry Christmas Zion Family. For unto us a child was born and unto us a son was given. Remember it’s all about Jesus. Enjoy great food and family today.

How Will This Be?

From a Child Prospective By Mackenzie Ware, 12 years old. ( This is what she received from Sunday message in her own words. )

Luke 1:26-35
How Will This Be?

We question the opportunities given to us, but if God has chosen you to do something don’t question it just do it. We have all asked “how will this be”, but you don’t have to ask this question if you believe in God he will just open the doors for you
Everyone has asked the question, how will this be, or will ask this question in some point of there life. When you don’t have enough money to pay for college tuition, when you get fired from a job, even when you become bankrupt and your about to loose you house you ask the question “how will this be”. When something happens in your life you either list the things you can’t do or the things you think you can’t. Let’s take Mary for example; she was pregnant but she was a virgin, so she looked up to God asked how will this be. She questioned everything at that moment, she knew it was real and was going to happen, but she didn’t know why God chose her.
If we believe, God will give you opportunities you thought you’d never have. God does his work through us, but he does it with people willing to do it. If he gives you something to do then you need to do it because it is for a good reason. God never makes mistakes so if you are chosen by him then you know it’s for a good reason. Adding on to that we already owe him so much because he got us through school, got us through our weak moments, got us through the hate from our enemies, he has gotten us through anything we could get through by ourselves. We can’t get through our whole life without any help, and that’s why God is always by your side, so if you need a shoulder to lean on lean on his, if you need a person to talk to talk to him, if you just need someone to be by you because you feel alone you have GOD by your side, and he will be there at all time.
God has a purpose for us all, so when God gives you your purpose you need to fulfill it. Don’t doubt the opportunities God provides you because everything that happens to you happened for a reason. In conclusion, believe in God so we don’t have to ask…”How Will This Be?”.
