God revealed his plan for Joseph through two dreams.  Those dreams led to both good and bad things in his life, both of which were used to transform Joseph from a lad ripe with the ability to become arrogant into a godly man who would reign just under Pharaoh and save his family and the future of Israel.  Today, we will explore where dreams can lead.

After many years of bad economy, political and social changes, world instability, terrorism, moral decline, natural disasters, personal, relational and economic problems, and not the least the ever-increasing Christian persecution, we can become weary and discouraged.  But through it all, as we look to God, He guides us and provides grace in every given need and situation.  For this we are grateful with thankful hearts to God!  We can find encouragement from the example of those who went before us and suffered, and by remembering Christ who endured much for us and we will not grow weary or discouraged as a result.

To live for Jesus takes courage to endure the hardships that come as a direct result of standing for Christ as your Savior.  Like a boxer that has been knocked down to the mat, learn from the experience and get back up and fight again.  Keep enduring, keep standing!

The West (United States, Canada, Europe,  & Australia) statistically are seeing many changes in population ethnicity groups, income levels and in their amount of missions thrust or interest in sharing the gospel with others.  Whereas, other countries found in Latin America, Africa and Asia are experiencing an explosion of people coming to the Lord and in sending out missionaries (even here to America).  Even under severe persecution the people of these countries are committing to following and serving the Lord, as well as, sharing the gospel, even if it means their lives.  Why is that?  Why is there a difference between the West and the East?  What does God expect Christians in the West to be doing?  (We begin this message with a presentation of the Gideon's International Ministry)

Never consider the Cross God has for us to carry as a burden, instead consider it a joy!

Kyle Idleman reminded us in his book, “Not a Fan”, that Jesus was never interested in fans. He wanted true followers. To be a true follower we must expect sacrifice and going beyond our comfort zone. We will not be following Jesus for what He gives us. We are not to sit in the stadium and cheer Jesus us on, we are to be down on the field with Jesus running the race. We will be straining our muscles, and striving to win the race. We will immediately follow Him when He calls and we will become fishers of men. We will take up our cross daily as we follow Him. Only with that will we be found worthy to follow Him.

Jesus asked His followers to take up their cross daily. Not occasionally, but daily. Taking up a cross meant sacrifice. Carrying our cross for Christ is evidence of our forsaking all to follow Him. Today, Pastor Terry will take a look at three men who said they would follow Jesus. The question is…did they mean it? The question to ourselves…do we mean it? Is there evidence in your life that reveals your passion to follow Christ? Is there evidence of sacrifice?

Two weeks ago we looked at the Veterans or Heroes of the Faith found in Hebrews 11: 1 – 7.  We saw how our Christian faith must be upheld that others may see the Truth of God so they can enjoy the freedom that Christ provides.  Last week we continued this look in to our personal faith and learn that we are temporary residents heading for a new homeland where we will enjoy our new citizenship.  Greeting the promises of God head on like the Heroes of Faith taught us, we are to live in such a way as to demonstrate our new homeland faith.  We are to set our eyes on things above and not on things of this earth.  This week Pastor Terry concludes this series on Faith by reminding us that as Christians we should have a thankful faith that rejoices, because it sees "Hope" in God in all things.

We are constantly bombarded with news of: Bombings, Wars, Uprisings, Riots, Spying, Government Wrong Doings, Persecution, Bankruptcies, Ungodly laws, Health problems, Accidents, Broken Relationships, and Financial Problems. Sometimes it can become overwhelming. God has given us a way to live through these difficult times and situations. We need to hold on to hope that is found in God's Word. We need to spur on one another to love and good works through encouragement during fellowship. Lastly, we need to value worshiping together.
