An Encouraging Devotion from Pastor Bates to You

In today’s society, we are called to trust everything except the Word of God. But the Bible is quick to remind us that just as God’s Word could be trusted in the days of Noah and Abraham, it can be trusted now. 

  1. Isaiah said, “The grass withers and the the flowers fall, but he Word of God will stand forever.” Isaiah 40:8
  2. David reminds us, “Your Word Lord is eternal, it stands firm in the heavens.”  Psalm 119:89
  3. And Jesus tells His followers, “Heaven and Earth will pass away, but My Word will never pass away.” Matthew 24:35
Beloved, the Word of the Lord is true, steadfast and trustworthy.  And, the only way for us to navigate these last days is to truly know the Word of the Lord!
I urge you to heed the instructions found in Deuteronomy 11:18-20,
1. “Lay up these words of mine on your heart.” (v.18) 
 Keep God’s Word in your heart at all times.
2. “Teach them to your children.”  (v.19)
Constantly speak God’s Word into your loved ones.
3. “Write them on the doorposts.”  (v.20)
Write the Word of God down, so that you will not forget what it says.When you do these things, Luke 11:28 tells of the outcome:
“Blessed rather are those who hear the Word of God and obey it.”
“Hear, Listen and Be Blessed!
And if you get the chance, come visit us sometime at Community Family Church in beautiful Independence, Kentucky!
We love y’all!”
