06.18.12 // Water Baptism

The Bible instructs us as believers to be water baptized as a confession of our faith and it also symbolizes our rebirth and cleansing through our Savior Jesus Christ.

We will then have a combined service with Creekside Church on Sunday July 22nd at 6PM where we will be water baptizing believers from both CLC and Creekside.  We will be offering a 2-part class on water baptism, Sunday July 8th and July 15th from 8:45am – 9:20am.

If you would like to be baptized in water, please contact P. Kristie Truett to register for the class or simply fill out the form below:

06.16.12 // Daily S.O.A.P. (Matt. 7:21-23)

SCRIPTURE

Matthew 7:21-23

‘Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’

OBSERVATION

Not everyone who ministers, who prays, or even performs miracles in His name will enter His Kingdom. It’s not about what we’ve done, it’s about relationship. We can know Him, but does He know us? We need to share ourselves with the Lord. Our strengths and our weaknesses. We need to surrender to Him our entire mind, body and soul. It’s not enough to minister by His name, we must surrender to His name.

APPLICATION

Today, I will fellowship with my God. I will converse with Him. Today will be more than service, but relationship. Today I will share with Him my deepest thoughts with Him and offer my highest worship to Him.

PRAYER

Lord, thank you for your great love and mercy. Thank you for caring so much for your children. Today I worship you in spirit and in truth. I pray that you will give me the strength to be real with you. I don’t want to live a life that pretends to be in relationship with you, I want to live a life that truly is in relationship with you. Thank you for our relationship. Bless this day, my family, my friends and the wonderful people of Connection Life Church!  Amen.

Daily S.O.A.P.

S.cripture O.bservation A.pplication P.rayer

For Connection Life Church, S.O.A.P. is the method of choice for daily devotions and life journals. I’ll begin posting my daily S.O.A.P. right here for you to follow along as well as share your own S.O.A.P. for others to enjoy.  Our daily passage will be fed here and updated daily. My daily S.O.A.P. will be posted in this category.

How to apply S.O.A.P….

You will need a bible, journal or piece of paper and a pen or pencil.

S: Scripture

Lookup today’s reading in your Bible. Take time reading and allow God to speak to you. When you are done, look for a verse that particularly spoke to you, and write it in your journal.

O: Observation

What do you think God is saying to you in this scripture? Ask the Holy Spirit to teach you and reveal Jesus to you. Paraphrase and write this scripture down in your own words, in your journal.

A: Application

Personalize what you have read, by asking yourself how it applies to your life right now. Perhaps it is instruction, encouragement, revelation of a new promise, or corrections for a particular area of your life. Write how this scripture can apply to you today.

P: Prayer

This can be as simple as asking God to help you use this scripture, or it may be a greater insight on what He may be revealing to you. Remember, prayer is a two way conversation, so be sure to listen to what God has to say! Now, write it out.


06.19.12 // Daily S.O.A.P. (Is. 58:6-10)

SCRIPTURE

Isaiah 58:6-10

‘Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter–when you see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood? Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard. Then you will call, and the LORD will answer; you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I. ‘If you do away with the yoke of oppression, with the pointing finger and malicious talk, and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday.

OBSERVATION

If we’ve ever wanted to be free and healed, the way to freedom and healing is through the helping of others. We need to get away from blaming others and simply help others. When we help meet the needs of others, our own freedom and healing will come quickly and God will have our backs.

APPLICATION

Today I will seek out opportunities to help someone else in need. I will look for those who are in need and offer my assistance. I will consider myself less and consider others first. I will do this to bring glory to Him and I will believe and receive for my own freedom and healing.

PRAYER

Lord, thank you for your goodness. Thank you for loving me as much as you do. Today I walk to serve you by serving others. Give me the strength and the discipline to put others before myself and to be that connector for your kingdom. Bless this day, my family, my friends and the wonderful people of Connection Life Church! Amen.
