Weekly news from WCUMC 11 24-13

  1. 1. Weekly News from WCUMC-11/24/2013 Sharing the transforming love of Jesus, across the street and around the world. “Giving Grace and Gratitude for God's Glory” All that we are and all that we have comes from God. But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. 2 Corinthians 4:7 No matter what trials we face, God never abandons us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that his life may also be revealed in our mortal body. So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you. 2 Corinthians 4:8-12 We can show our gratitude to God by speaking out for Him. It is written: “I believed; therefore I have spoken.”Since we have that same spirit of faith, we also believe and therefore speak, because we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead will also raise us with Jesus and present us with you to himself. All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God. 2 Corinthians 4:13-15 No matter what happens to us in this life, we have the assurance of
  2. 2. eternal life. Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 Our gratitude is a response to the grace God has given to us.    Gratitude is more than saying "thank you". There is a feeling involved in gratitude; it is a deep, real feeling that elicits a response and a form of delight. Feeling thankful alone isn't enough. There must be a delight in both the GIVER and the GIFT. the emotion of gratitude goes up in direct proportion to how undeserved the gift is. We can show our gratitude to God in how we think, act and treat others. THIS WEEK AT WCUMC Sunday - 11/24   Evening Prayer, 5:30 PM, Prayer Room Young Families Group, 6:00 - 8:30 PM.
