Welcome To FBC Peculiar!
"If anyone desires to come after Me,
let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily,
and follow Me." - Luke 9:23
Jesus had just sent out his twelve disciples into a world of demons and disease. They were told to preach the kingdom of God and heal the sick. "Take nothing for the journey" he told them. They did just as they were told: town to town, person to person, heart to heart. This is the heartbeat of the gospel for every believer.
Our human instinct is to establish personal rights, priviliages and possesions as our main focus while Jesus says "For what profit is it to man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed or lost?" v.24. Jesus said raise the bar of tranquility from the flesh to the Spirit. We will not find comfort in our selfish persuits. We must let the Holy Spirit strip us of our narrow-mindedness and clothe us with faith, hope, and love. This may sound very "peculiar" and so we are (1 Peter 2:9).
We are called out of darkness into His marvelous light.
So Be It,
Pastor Tim Redding
