Pursue - Overtake - Recover

Ziklag was listed as one of the 29 towns in Negev assigned to the
tribe of Simoen (Joshua 15:31; 19:5).
It was apparently controlled by the Philistines during King Saul’s rule,
and was given to David by King Achish of Gath. David used the town as a home base for raids against various
groups who threatened the southern borders of Judah (I Samuel 27). After being away one time, David
returned to find it ransacked by the Amalekites.

David’s response is a powerful story of reclaiming what was
lost. Often in life we find
ourselves in this situation. What
is God’s take on our situation?
Some interesting principles in the text we’ll examine on Sunday
morning. To know God’s attitude
about our losses is valuable when we seek His direction on how to respond. Have you lost your Ziklag? God has three words for you. Come expecting a blessing!

Amazing Grace: Opinions & Options

This Friday (23rd) the movie, "Amazing Grace" premiers all over the nation.  It is a story of one's man driving passion to eradicate slavery in the British Empire.  The story is a journey of struggle and ultimately victory.  We will have a few clips about the movie during the assembly on Sunday (25th).  

When Abraham Lincoln delivered a speech to the 14th Indiana Regiment in 1865, he said, in part:  "Whenever I hear anyone arguing for slavery, I feel a strong impulse to see it tried on him personally."  Nine years earlier, during his annual message to Congress, Lincoln asserted:  "In giving freedom to the slave we assure freedom for the free - honorable alkie in what we give and waht we preserve."  In a Birmingham jail in 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., wrote:  "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."  

God's Surprising Power Over My Failure

This will be the fifth and final installment in study series from Psalms.  We've talked about God's surprising power over my disappointment, confusion, hurt, and fear.  Failure seems to be the toughest because we usually bring this on ourselves.  

We will tell the story of a man who was held responsibile for a mistake that took nine lives and cost the government tens of millions of dollars.  It cost him his career, and nearly his sanity.  What was his turning point?  How did he find resolution to his failure?  What role did his faith and His God play?  We will look at his life through the lens of Psalm 13.  His testimony is powerful!  

90 Minutes In Heaven

Baptist minister, Don Pipper was driving his small Ford on his way home from a conference in Texas. A truck crossed the center line and hit him head-on. The medical response team checked for life in his mangled body, but there was no pulse, and one look at the broken and bloody body confirmed that he was dead. But, he wasn't. Another minister came upon the scene and asked the policeman in charge if he could pray for the man in the car with the tarp covering his body. He was given permission, and a miracle happened. Don Pipper awoke singing, "What A Friend We Have In Jesus"!

8% will tune in just to view the ads  -  ads that will cost $73,333 per second!  
- The Bears and Colts will do battle for the Vince Lombardi Trophy, a sterling silver prize that costs the league $25,000.  
- The football game will be only 60 minutes, but there will be at least 30 minutes of commercials interrupting the game.
