Live Life More Abundantly

Everybody wants to live an abundant life.  As a matter of fact, that's one of the reasons why Jesus sacrificed his life.  In John 10:10, Jesus said, " The thief cometh not but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly."  But how do we live life abundantly?  Well, one of the main keys to having  an abundant life is understanding how to live the way God intended.    Proverbs 4:7 states, " Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding."  On Wednesday night our ministers are prepared to impart you with wisdom and understanding to help you live better and to help you experience the life that God intended for you.

Join us this Wednesday, April 30th at 7pm for our Small Group Life Lessons.  Learn practical ways to improve your life and live abundantly.

Choose from 4 small groups:

Minister Jonathan White will teach in the sanctuary on the importance and methods of training children to love, respect, honor, reverence, serve and fear God.

"Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." -Proverbs 22:6

Minister Daunte Gibbs will teach in the chapel on effective yet simple study habits and tools to understand and research the Word of God.

"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me:  seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children." - Hosea 4:6

"Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.  -2 Timothy 2:15

Minister Ervin Lawrence will teach in the downstairs kitchen are on how to overcome the storms of life.

"Beloved think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy."  1 Peter 4:12, 13

Minister Patricia Crawford and Lady Candee McKibbins will continue teaching new converts in the Large Sunday School room away from the Sanctuary.  They will teach understanding the salvation experience, maintaining your salvation, and the role of the Holy Spirit.

We look forward to seeing you there.

The bible is filled with amazing life lessons that come from the lives of real people who went through some of the same things that we experience today (Ecclesiastes 1:9).  In addition to everyday challenges, there were also some scandalous occurrences that happened throughout the bible such as the situation of adultery and murder with David, Bathsheba, and Uriah (2 Samuel 11),  the issue with Ananias and Sapphira withholding money from the church (Acts 5:1-11), and the time when Solomon had to decide who the real mother of the live baby was (1 Kings 3:16).  Even though all of those examples were major scandals, perhaps, the biggest and most referenced scandal in history happened when Judas, one of the twelve disciples, betrayed Jesus for thirty pieces of silver.

The day before Jesus was taken to be sacrificed, he celebrated the Passover and his last supper with his disciples.  While they ate, Jesus brought up the fact that one of them would betray him.  The bible states that the disciples were upset and they asked, "Is it me?"  Jesus didn't respond to the other disciples ;however, when Judas asked the same thing, Jesus said, "Thou hast said."  Even though Jesus was in the middle of the biggest scandals in history, he continued forward in love and temperance and stayed focused on his mission all the way to the cross.  Jesus has given us the best example of how to live through challenges and even through scandals.  His sacrifice is the reason why we can rejoice during good times and hardships.  His love for us is the reason why we have an opportunity to receive eternal life.

We would like to invite you, your family, and friends to the Church of Atlanta Lighthouse this Friday at 7pm for our Good Friday service and this Sunday for  our Easter Resurrection services at 8:30am and 11am to celebrate our Great Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  We look forward to seeing you there!
