There are many benefits to being a Christian, aka being part of God’s family. In this sermon Pastor Terlecki discusses some of the benefits of being in His family. He creatively points out how we are members of AAA, Travelers and Sam’s Club (or others) and the benefits of such membership. These are beneficial memberships here on earth, but what about the benefits that God, our Father, gives us?
God forgives our inequities – each and every one of them! Psalm 103
He is the Great Physician and heals our diseases!
He redeems our lives from destruction! Psalm 103:4
He satisfies our mouths and renews our youth! Psalm 103:5
This is obviously a narrow list of the benefits to being a member of God’s family; Pastor Terlecki invites you to consider the multitudes of benefits and blessing that God provides for those that walk with Him. And lest you remember that no weapon formed against you shall propser. Isaiah 54:17
1 Out of the depths I cry to you, Lord;
2 Lord, hear my voice.
Let your ears be attentive
to my cry for mercy.
3 If you, Lord, kept a record of sins,
Lord, who could stand?
4 But with you there is forgiveness,
so that we can, with reverence, serve you.
5 I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits,
and in his word I put my hope.
6 I wait for the Lord
more than watchmen wait for the morning,
more than watchmen wait for the morning.
7 Israel, put your hope in the Lord,
for with the Lord is unfailing love
and with him is full redemption.
8 He himself will redeem Israel
from all their sins.
17 no weapon forged against you will prevail,
and you will refute every tongue that accuses you.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
and this is their vindication from me,”
declares the Lord.
