THANK YOU FOR LISTENING
I made a little video a couple days ago. It was five years ago that I was diagnosed with cancer (CLL), so I wanted to capitalize on the timing, celebrate God's goodness, and use what He's done in me to help others.
In this video, I share how I would have never known I had cancer unless they tested my blood. There was no other way to validate that without a test. Well, the same way with our spiritual condition. There's no way to determine your spiritual condition without a test. And God's word gives us a clear test of what God expects and what often is not happening. So God's word is revealing — like my cancer was revealed through a test, His word reveals, okay, I got a problem. And who's the only one that can reconcile that? Jesus Jesus Jesus!
Recently, I shared a witness with some guys building a new fence around the cemetery. I got to talk with them about how we ALL come from one blood. How my blood was polluted and messed up with a particular kind of blood cancer. They looked at me like, "You got cancer?" I said, "Yeah, I have a blood disorder, I have bad blood, diseased blood!" Then I said, "But I would've never known that I was sick, without a test. And I said, "God also gives us a test of revealing that we have a bad and corrupt heart. Our hearts are corrupt and messed up." And I had the opportunity to share how I know that and thought of doing the same with you.
And thank each of you for interceding and walking through this journey with us. And pass this word on if you think it will help those you love.
Blessing to you and your nest,
Nick and Honey

Yes, don't be caught off guard, blindsided or unaware…
Self (flesh) — Mortify
Society's System— Hate
Satan — Resist
And as brother James reminds us:
"But He gives MORE grace. [This is] why He said, God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble" (James 4:6).
(2 Corinthians 4:7-18 ; 12:7-10 ; James 4:6-10 ; Romans 5:1-5 ; 1 Peter 1:6-9 and 5:5-11 ; Titus 2:11-14)
A few bullet points from the transcription of this message.
• Spiritual condition and cancer diagnosis.
◦ Pastor Nick Holden shared his personal experience with cancer and how it revealed a deeper spiritual condition, using the analogy of a blood test to illustrate the importance of self-examination.
◦ Brother Holden and his friends discussed the idea of corruption and how it affects us all, with Holden sharing his own struggles with a blood disorder and the importance of seeking God's glory in our lives.
◦ Pastor Nick discusses interacting with people while out and about, and how he prefers to engage with others rather than being on his phone.
• Humility and submission in Christian life.
◦ Pastor Nick emphasizes the importance of being under orders and working together in harmony, with humility and meekness, to fulfill one's assignment.
◦ James encourages younger people to submit themselves to their elders and work together in unity, with humility and teachability, to fulfill their assignments…

Unbelief is the worst problem in the world. With unbelief, of course, comes all manner of sin. We have been looking at Isaiah 53:1-12 and studying its gospel-centered content. At the same time there is a prevailing question that starts this chapter. "Who has believed our report? And to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?"
The only Cure for Unbelief is The Grace of God, The Son of God, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

There are many different versions of the truth in the world. Who shall we believe? The Messiah / The Christ must be revealed to men. There are two essential elements to make this happen: 1) God's Spirit must be working; 2) The Gospel must be preached. To know Christ is our greatest reason for Joy and thanksgiving. To make Him known to others should be our greatest concern and focus.
After a brief review of James' earlier content,
Kevin Pulliam, pastor of Christ Reformed Church,
turns to conflicts within ourselves, between each
other and most importantly, between us and God.
These are fomented by friendship with the world.
You are invited to listen in.
One of the sweetest verses in the Bible. Heaven's court of perfect justice declaring that condemnation is removed for all who are in Christ Jesus and walking in the Spirit. Here is justification, sanctification and union with Christ. All of which are only possible through Christ.
