Today is “Vision Sunday”
Without a vision the people perish or cast off restraints. Without a vision, individuals, businesses, and even churches flounder in the sea of hopelessness. ECF’s vision/mission is centered on three distinct words – “Reaching”, “Restoring” and “Releasing.” What follows is the core of our existing and being – “Humanity to live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ.” Unless there is “buy-in” – a vision/mission is just words. Our prayer and our hope is that each and every Eagle at ECF will be a living container of “HOPE” by living out our three “R’s” – “Reaching”, “Restoring” and “Releasing!” AMEN!!!
This Weeks Sermon: is entitled “The Price of Hope” Part 2. Is free “free?” No! Nothing is “free.” There is a cost to everything. There is a price to pay for that cost. What is the price of our Hope? It cost Jesus Christ His life! Let’s soar as we explore “The Price of Hope!”
HOPE: The basic definition of HOPE is; “The belief that something good may happen.” Hope is that intangible that has a direct influence / bearing on the tangible. Proverbs13:12 says, “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but when desires come, they are a tree of life.” Hebrews 6:19 says, “Hope is the anchor of our souls.” Romans 15:13 is our cap stone verse for 2014. “Now may the God of Hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in Hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” May it be said of us at EFC – that ECF is a “Place of Hope” and that we are a people of promise! AMEN!
