THE BEST THINGS IN LIFE ARE FREE
It is said that for money you can have everything, but you cannot. You can buy food, but not appetite; medicine, but not health; knowledge, but not wisdom; glitter but not beauty; fun, but not friends; servants, but not faithfulness; leisure, but not peace. You can have the husk of everything for money, but not the kernel.When I enter the beautiful city and the saints all around me appear, I hope that someone will tell me, “It was you who invited me here.”

THE UNFAILING HELPER
A young pastor preached about Christ healing the man with the withered hand (Matthew 12:10). A few days later, the pastor visited a man who had suffered a stroke that had left him with a withered arm and hand. This man had heard the pastor’s sermon and said to the pastor, “I know of no one who can touch and heal me, but I can tell you one thing. I have learned that Christ is the only one who can help me deal with it. Others are nice to me, but Christ is the only one who can really help me.” Because of the depth of his faith, the man found healing for his spirit and thus could handle the weakness of his body!

FROM THE PASTOR'S DESK:
Are You On Fire?
Are you on fire? You have to be if you ever want to see God do great things in your life and in the lives others! You need to be continually burning hot or you risk going out. Any fire that is starved of the elements it needs to burn, will eventually burn out and die. The embers just lie there and glow and if you don’t throw some wood on them the will go out and turn to dust. And just like a fire, your spiritual life can burn out and die, if you don’t keep feeding it what it needs to burn and grow. The Holy Spirit can be like that in your life at times.
It dies down and just glows until it’s fueled and then it turns into a roaring blaze that spreads its’ warmth to everything around it. He never actually leaves you, but He’s not always as strong as He could be. And once the fire of the spirit has died down, not much really happens in our lives, until the flames are fanned, and it begins to come back to life.
So, are you a burning flame or just a dying ember? Are you on fire or not? It’s easy to tell the difference. Those on fire possess the anointing of the Holy Spirit who brings comfort and power in times of hardship and stress. They have the ability and the right to speak in the authority of God’s Word to change the very world around them. These are the people I want to be warmed by. If you are a Christ-follower, that right and privilege belongs to you.
We keep our fires burning brightly when we remain in the Spirit and fuel its flames with prayer, worship, the Word and fellowship. This is what makes church so vital. It’s when you stop doing these things that your flame dies and turns into an ember, hungering for you to gather more fuel to feed it and maintain it. Jesus was our example of a fire that never died or went out. He maintained the anointing of the Holy Spirit and spoke words of blazing fire. As the body of Christ, we too can keep the fire of the Holy Spirit burning bright and maintain that anointing in our own lives.
The Bible is filled with references to the Holy Spirit and a burning fire. Matthew 3:11 says, “As for me, I baptize you with water for repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, and I am not fit to remove His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.” Acts 2:3 says, “And there appeared to them tongues as of fire distributing themselves, and they rested on each one of them.” The Christ-follower and the Holy Spirit go together like gasoline and fire! If you’re not burning brightly for God, re-stock your fuel supply and stoke your fire so you can burn some stuff for the Father! Amen!
-Pastor Tony Cubello
