SUNDAY SNAPSHOT (HYMNS - 3)

In many ways... the old time HYMNS are the Oral History of our Faith! Just like the Psalms in Scripture- they have been passed from generation to generation and sung in Cathedrals and Chapels... (And for many of us...) around a Family Piano! They are rich with Truth/Promise from Scripture- so we’ve started taking a few weeks here at COC to talk about a few of those famous songs in a series we're calling "HYMNS" -- We're diving into a few of those Classic Hymns to explore their meaning filled with HOPE and hopefully illuminating the HOPE they still have for us today! Praying you’ll consider joining us the remaining few weeks…

 

Sunday Snapshot… (3) I’LL FLY AWAY

 

We need to HOPE/PRAY that God would always give us a HOPE FOR ETERNITY and an URGENCY FOR TODAY!

 

Just a few more weary days and then - I'll Fly Away! To a land where joys will never end - I'll Fly Away! (Albert Brumley)

 

FOR ME TO LIVE IS CHRIST… TO DIE IS GAIN (The Apostle Paul) -- He lived with a HOPE FOR ETERNITY and an URGENCY FOR TODAY!

 

Some glad morning when this life is over - I'll Fly Away! To that home on God's celestial shore - I'll Fly Away! (Albert Brumley)

 

FOLLOWER OF JESUS... Our time is short - remember your assignment - don't leave deeds undone or hope unshared... always LIVE with a HOPE FOR ETERNITY and with an URGENCY FOR TODAY!

 

 

See You Sunday Celebrators… (9a / 10:45a)

Sunday Snapshot… (2) WHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE IN JESUS!

  

What a Friend we have in Jesus - all our sins and griefs to bear… and what a privilege to carry… EVERYTHING TO GOD IN PRAYER! (Joseph Scriven)

 

Philippians 4:6… Do not be anxious about ANYTHING… but in EVERY situation… by PRAYER and petition with thanksgiving… present your requests to God!

 

If your PROBLEM is big enough to WORRY about - it's big enough to PRAY about!

 

1 Peter 5:7… Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you! (What A Friend We Have In Jesus!)

 

"Prayer is simply a Two-Way Conversation between You and God! It's not just you Speaking… but it's you Listening to God too!” (Billy Graham)

 

PRAYER might not always CHANGE your CIRCUMSTANCES - but it will always CHANGE the way you VIEW your CIRCUMSTANCES!
