Failing To Do The Good I Want And Succeeding At Doing The Evil I Don’t Want

Sermon: We Have The Victory (EJ Hatton)

MP3: sermon-e.hatton-Jun24-2012

Romans 7:14-25 (NET)

7:14 For we know that the law is spiritual – but I am unspiritual, sold into slavery to sin. 7:15 For I don’t understand what I am doing. For I do not do what I want – instead, I do what I hate. 7:16 But if I do what I don’t want, I agree that the law is good. 7:17 But now it is no longer me doing it, but sin that lives in me. 7:18 For I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my flesh. For I want to do the good, but I cannot do it. 7:19 For I do not do the good I want, but I do the very evil I do not want! 7:20 Now if I do what I do not want, it is no longer me doing it but sin that lives in me.

7:21 So, I find the law that when I want to do good, evil is present with me. 7:22 For I delight in the law of God in my inner being. 7:23 But I see a different law in my members waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that is in my members. 7:24 Wretched man that I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? 7:25 Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself serve the law of God with my mind, but with my flesh I serve the law of sin.

Fathers Providing For A Stronger Family

The new flame was delivered this week. It hasn’t been installed yet but it looked great. The photos under the fluorescent lights don’t do it justice.

I’m also trying a new mp3 player for the website. The old player is not compatible with the latest version of WordPress. The new player works on a wider range of mobile devices.

Sermon: Loving Fathers (EJ Hatton)

MP3: sermon-e.hatton-Jun17-2012

1 Timothy 5:7-9 (NET)

5:7 Reinforce these commands, so that they will be beyond reproach. 5:8 But if someone does not provide for his own, especially his own family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.

5:9 No widow should be put on the list unless she is at least sixty years old, was the wife of one husband,

Prayer Service

Rev. EJ didn’t really preach today instead he decided to conduct a prayer service. This week there is no audio so I’ll post a few extra photos at the bottom. Tomorrow, June 11th is the delivery date for our new flame. Can’t wait for that!

This Sunday June 17th is Father’s Day. Be Prepared!

Creation Waits In Eager Expectation

The joint worship service with Dawson Springs went very well. I am pleased with many of the photos I took during the service and the audio came out very good.

Reminder: June 11th is the delivery date for our new flame. The day it is installed means that all of my current photos will be obsolete but I don’t mind. :-)

Sermon: We Live A Life Of Hope (EJ Hatton)

MP3: sermon-e.hatton-Jun3-2012

Romans 8:18-25 (NET)

8:18 For I consider that our present sufferings cannot even be compared to the glory that will be revealed to us. 8:19 For the creation eagerly waits for the revelation of the sons of God. 8:20 For the creation was subjected to futility – not willingly but because of God who subjected it – in hope 8:21 that the creation itself will also be set free from the bondage of decay into the glorious freedom of God’s children. 8:22 For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers together until now. 8:23 Not only this, but we ourselves also, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we eagerly await our adoption, the redemption of our bodies. 8:24 For in hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope, because who hopes for what he sees? 8:25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with endurance.
