Are you worried? Specifically, are you worried about the everyday issues of life? Do you spend time and energy trying to discern the future and what it might bring? Does that type of fear and anxiety of the unknown keep you up at night? You were not designed for that! So, in the words of Bob Newhart, “Stop it”. Google the video.

Ok, Jesus was a little more tactful than Bob but He’s pretty much saying the same thing. What may surprise you is exactly what Jesus meant when He said, “take no thought” of these things.

Lynnae and I will be sharing the message together this week. Come be with us and let’s all say GOODBYE to worry! Remember to be generous and invite someone to come and experience God with you at The Net!

We love you and would love a chance to pray for you. Please email me with any prayer requests and your requests are always confidential.
Generosity is the byproduct of a healthy heart and God has purposed that we all have healthy hearts. It may surprise you to find out that this lifestyle is so much more than just the willingness to give our money but it is the very grace of God alive and at work in us. It’s ironic that the type of generosity that Jesus spoke of doesn’t leave us empty but actually fills us up. Psalm 23 verse 1 says, “I lack nothing”; verse 3 says, “He refreshes my soul”; verse 5 says, “my cup overflows”. This is what happens to us when we are led by our Shepherd, Jesus.

Come see what it’s all about this Sunday, 10:30 am, at Huntsville Junior High School. I hope to see you there!
What would it be worth to have an extraordinary life full of wisdom and God’s blessing? Some have said that our success in life or failure is due to the sum total of the decisions we make. I think there is a lot of truth in that statement. The great news for believers in Christ is that God has chosen to give us His incredible wisdom. James, the brother of Jesus says that God gives it “generously” to all who ask. God is generous and He has given us so much wisdom through the scriptures. It is our choice whether we follow that wisdom or not.

We saw last week that we were created for a purpose and we have the power to live beyond what we think we are capable of. This week, we will be talking about the power of living a life of wisdom! Most of us have only scratched the surface of God’s plan for us.

Join us this week as we go deeper!
The richest three chapters in all the Bible, in my opinion, are Matthew 5, 6 and 7. I often tell people that Christianity is easy to understand but it’s hard to do. I usually accompany that by saying that if you want to know what Christianity is all about then read Matthew 5, 6 and 7. These three pages are packed full of wisdom, challenge and understanding of God’s heart. But, even within these rich passages of Jesus own words, there is a golden nugget. It’s one that if understood and practiced will change your life forever. It will change your whole perspective on the way God thinks and if applied to your life, will change the way you think, feel and act. It will transform you. The health of your soul, the health of your relationships and the destiny of your life in Christ depends on it. It defines us. It’s summed up in this simple phrase, “Love your enemies”. This is impossible for us, but as Jesus says, “With God all things are possible”. I can’t wait to dive into this with you Sunday.

Don’t miss Bill! We are in our Crossroads series and our musical theme is Blues! Make sure to get there early because one of our amazing guitar players, Bill Schmelling, is not only going to play the strings off his guitar but will be singing a famous blues song by Stevie Ray Vaughn. It’s called Crossfire and the lyrics tie into our series. So come and enjoy a great time fun and worship with your friends this Sunday at The Net! We love you and we’ll see you there!
The idea of selling one’s soul to the devil in exchange for music prowess is one that dates back to the middle ages. I can relate to the feeling of wanting musical talent so bad that you would do almost do anything to get it but fortunately the myth is only a myth.
However, we all make trips to a type of “Crossroads”. It’s a place where we choose our own path or the one that God has placed before us. In fact, if we could recognize it, we would see that we make multiple trips to the crossroads where life altering choices are made. It is those choices as Robert Frost put it in his poem “The Road Not Taken”, that make all the difference. Some of us find ourselves at “The Crossroads" today, making choices about relationships, commitment to God, jobs, family, investments, etc. Some of us have made choices that can’t be undone and we wish we could go back to “The Crossroads”. If we are not deliberate in the choices we make, we can literally trade our souls for the fulfillment of pride, lust, or selfish ambition.

The great news is this! No matter where you are or what you have done in the past, God has a way forward for you! He has a plan for your life! He wants the best for you! He created you on purpose and He is waiting for you at “The Crossroads". Which road will you choose?
