Today is Tuesday. We had such a great service Sunday and yesterday I was taking care of five prospective teachers who have been with us this weekend. I am so pleased with each one of them and know that they would each be a great addition to our school and church. I enjoyed so much getting to know them better and share with them our program and people. Last night we had a remarkable program put on by the children of Grand View Christian Academy, and we shared some things that will be new for next year. It was exciting! Here is a truth for today:
"I" PROBLEM- According to Isaiah 14:11-14, Lucifer had "I" problem. He was the originator of this problem, but he has spread this disease around the world, and throughout the centuries. He gave it to Nebuchadnezzar and caused him to be judged of God and live like a beast for seven years. He inserts it into Christians at church sometimes and causes trouble. He brings it to a home to upset a marriage that once was strong with love. Notice what he said: Isaiah 14:12-14 "How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! 13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: 14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High." Five times in two short verses. Remember when we develop "I" problems, where we get it from and let us be done with it. Remember that humility is what is of God. Preferring one another comes from a higher authority!
Have a blessed day! Pastor Mike Mutchler
