God desires to have a close, intimate, personal ...loving, dynamic,...

From First Christian Church, Abingdon, VA on Saturday, August 4th, 2018 in Church & Ministry & Posts
God desires to have a close, intimate, personal ...loving, dynamic, powerful relationship with you. Christianity is not about a weekly trip to church. We must move beyond that. Come join us in worship tomorrow as Tom shares, “LOVE-THE PINNACLE OF THE LAW" taken from Matthew 22:34-40.
"Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: "Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?" Jesus replied: "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments."
To Love the Lord Your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind and with all your strength; you must be in relationship with Him. You must have a passion for that relationship. The greatest expression of God's love is communicated to us in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” Romans 5:8 proclaim the same message: “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” We can see from these verses that it is God's greatest desire that we join Him in His eternal home, heaven. He has made the way possible by paying the price for our sins. He loves us because He chose to as an act of His will. Love forgives. How incredible that the Creator of the universe would love you and me in this way! Do you know and experience the security and sweetness of His care? Gratitude and praise should flow from our heart. In turn, love others deeply out of thankfulness for the love that we have received.
Come worship with us tomorrow....put Christ first in your life. The most important gift you can receive is through those doors of a church....spiritual nourishment and growth, bring honor to Christ, fellowship with other believers and receive his word. What can be more important than Gods gift? It's a GIFT you can take with you FOREVER!

    Book by Thomas Meehan and Bob Martin ~~ Music by Matthew Sklar Lyrics by Chad Beguelin ~~ Based upon the New Line Cinema film written by David Berenbaum ~~ A hilarious tale of Buddy, a young orphan who accidentally crawls into Santa’s bag and is taken back to the North Pole. The would-be elf is raised, unaware that he is actually a human, until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities force him to face the truth. With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father, and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh realities that his father is on the naughty list and his half-brother doesn’t even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help remember the true meaning of Christmas. After all, the best way to spread Christmas Cheer is singing loud for all to hear.~~ Director's Notes The Elf-man Chronicles of Buddy, at Christmas. ~~ Christ·mas \"(‘krisməs)~~ noun ~~ 1.the annual Christian festival celebrating Christ's birth, held‪ on December 25in the Western Church.~~ exclamation ~~ 2. expressing dismay, despair, or surprise.~~ For our hero, BUDDY, the Elf, Christmas 2018 is going be unlike any other he’s had before. This one will be full of surprises . And as surprises often go, some will be great... and others, a little less great. In a matter of minutes, he will discover that his happy and syrup-filled life with Santa Claus has been based on a FIB! Buddy is not an ELF at all, but rather, j ust a human! And his real father works in publishing! whatever that is! So, Buddy embarks on a journey of self discovery, as only Buddy can.We can all identify with his search, full of longing for areal family. To feel the warm embrace of his father, to drink hot cocoa with his stepmom, and to snuggle with his newfound brother. From the snowy drifts of the North Pole to the bustling streets of New York City,Buddy swerves in and out of danger, bringing everyone he meets a proverbial gumdrop full of cheer.~~ And what about us, as we watch this musical from our comfortable seats? Are we capable of Buddy’s good cheer in the face of despair? Can we turn shock and dismay into joy and laughter with our own good nature and a few bars of Jingle Bells?~~ It’s easy to get caught up in the frenzied month of December, all the parties and shopping, the wrapping paper and ribbons. Let’s pause to reflect on the sparklejollyjingletwinkle y-ness of this wonderful life. Let’s learn from Buddy’s discovery. Let’s be inspired by this overgrown Elf-Man. Let’s cruise down Main Street, singing along with our own father, mother, kids, and grandkids. Let’s put our own innate and surprising abundance of sparklejollyjinkgletwinkl ey into this Christmas. And make everyone around us feel as good as a cup full of maple syrup and a ginger snap.
