Pastor G’s Introduction to the Daniel Fast Study

Let’s get it in CMBC virtual family!

Are you excited about the quickly approaching new year? Are you wanting 2016 to be your breakout year? If so, there’s only one way for believers to achieve such lofty expectations. Jesus said to his disciples that some miracles only happen through 1.) Fasting and 2.) Praying.

That’s why Pastor G and Christ Missionary Baptist Church and our TLC virtual ministry family are offering you an opportunity to learn more about our corporate Daniel Fast. Using our virtual platform we want to share this vital opportunity to renew, refresh and return to a closer walk with Christ as we head into 2016. Here’s how you can participate.

  • Watch the introductory video
  • Enter your email and signup for the regular video updates and free downloads
  • Join in the dialogue and discussion on Facebook, twitter, and on google+

It’s that simple!

Be sure to share this study with family and friends so together you can bring the new year in on a blessed note. I’ll see you during the study and pray you join the corporate fast on December 1st.

Pastor G, the CMBC and TLC Virtual Ministry Team

The Risk of Being Lost in Love

Lost in LoveMy wife and kids will tell you that I don’t have any problems driving off the beaten path. I love wandering back roads, alleys and side streets. Sometimes I even intentionally get lost in order to experience places, people and perspectives I’ve never seen before. I’ve found parks, stores, and golf courses I never knew existed on my detours. Some people may think I’m crazy. But, there can be benefits to being lost when your goal is a new perspective.

In the same way “lost” to God means nothing all by itself. To those who believe in the power of God’s will, lost to Him means finding newness all at the same time. I know to many of us lost means frustration, failure, fear, and stagnation. But to God lost can equal opportunity, growth, potential, and a new perspective on life.

Today’s blog post “Lost in Love” is my attempt to argue that a good place to be lost is in love. Losing oneself in love changes our focus from the things in life that are wrong to the things in our lives that are right. We have made it our routine to get lost in our issues and challenges rather than loving and being loved. In doing so we can only see life through paranoid and fearful lenses. Everything becomes interpreted from the angle of those things that keep us boxed in, frustrated and enslaved by our inability to control the negatives around us.

But, notice what happens when you change your perspective by viewing life through the lens of love? What’s important is no longer what’s wrong in your life like being unemployed, facing divorce or health related issues. What’s important is how you love others and how you express your love of God.

Notice how this works in real life. Say you’ve recently married and you have growing concerns about your spouse’s fidelity. You can worry about them cheating or being dishonest day and night. You can sneak behind their back and read their text messages and go through their emails and Facebook pages to check for signs of infidelity and convicting communication. But the truth is that you’re focusing too much attention on what your spouse could do wrong and not enough attention on worrying about the things your spouse can do right because if I can get you lost in love with me, then I don’t have to concern myself with cheating. Why, because I know you love me too much to cheat or lie.

Jesus helps us to understand the importance of love in Mathew 22:34-40. There he gives us the greatest commandments. Jesus helps us to see that if you get LOVE right, you get it all right.

34 Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. 35 One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: 36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” (NIV)
