Have You Been Born Again?

Filed under: Uncategorized — Thomas Odom @ 8:44 am

As some know, our church operates a small Christian Academy on-site at Ocoee Church of God (www.ocoeecog.com/lca).

Each month, students are required to memorize scripture as part of our program.

Chapel services are conducted one day per week.

I routinely utilize Chapel services to dig deeper into that months scripture assignment.

The current scripture assignment is John 3:1-16. Today, we covered verses 1-3.

Chapel concluded about 45 minutes ago and I still find myself reciting the words of Jesus in verse 3: Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

I ask myself and you today, Have You Been Born Again?

Time To Be Ready

Filed under: Uncategorized — Thomas Odom @ 8:21 pm

Over the last few days I have dealt with things as a pastor that I’ve never dealt with before.

It seemed to be that one blow after another kept coming to families in our church.

As their pastor I was their mostly for support.

It was during these events, I was reminded that we are in spiritual warfare.

I’m troubled at the lack of commitment people have today for the things of the Lord.

I’m reminded of the scripture in Amos about being at ease in Zion.

My prayer is that we will be stirred more than we ever have been before.

Blessings.

Pastor Thomas
