Today, members of the Allenhurst Presbyterian Church are celebrating their church's 50th anniversary.
Ephesians 1:4-5 says, "Even as [in His love] He chose us [actually picked us out for Himself as His own] in Christ before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy (consecrated and set apart for Him) and blameless in His sight, even above reproach, before Him in love."
My wife and I recently refinanced our home. With interest rates below 4 percent, it made no sense not to do so.

In Ephesians, the Holy Spirit, in and through Paul, reveals what Jesus Christ did for every believer. Every faithful believer has life only in Jesus Christ, meaning believers live and act in the Lord's sphere. Believers have unions with Christ, fellowship with Him, relationships with Him and they are intimate with Him. Believers are in love with Jesus Christ and they fall more in love with Him daily.
What a spectacle of God's power must have been shown during the days of creation – the shifting of the land masses, the forming of the seas and water ways, the great lights set to rule day and night to control the seasons and the years as the great designer made a world that was ready for man to inhabit; the plant and animal life formed and given to man to have dominion over them (Gen. 1:28, 29).

Have you ever felt that you were at the end of the road? Feel like you were down to your last?
As the family of the Liberty Prayer Chapel of Hinesville prepare for their church's 12th anniversary, they are reflecting and anticipating a great time of fellowship.
"I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect." - Romans 12:1-2
Getting to know God through conversation and dialoguing with Him in prayer is the mold in which the character of our lives is shaped.
