Thank you for joining with us in worshiping our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We hope that you enjoyed our service today and encourage you seek God in everything that you do.
At Real Hope our purpose is to love the Lord our God with all of our hearts and with all of our souls and with all of our minds.
Our focus begins with all the people of Citrus County and by the Grace of God we will:
Gather together to worship and celebrate God,
Grow in our knowledge and faith,
Give in love and,
Go out into the world to shine brightly with the light of salvation from our Savior Jesus Christ and tell the world what we know is true; God Loves You No Matter What!
We boldly ask God to help us shake the Earth and touch the Heavens!
We look forward to seeing you again.
Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight.”
Some things to think about:
The world shouts loudly and demands to be heard. Will you silence the call? What might be holding you back?
Have you ever really trusted God enough to listen? What was the outcome?
My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.
He replied, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it.”
Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.
‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.
1 John 5:14
Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.
Whoever gives heed to instruction prospers,
and blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord.
I love the Lord, for he heard my voice;
he heard my cry for mercy.
Because he turned his ear to me,
I will call on him as long as I live.
Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.
Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.
1 John 5:15
In my distress I called to the Lord;
I cried to my God for help.
From his temple he heard my voice;
my cry came before him, into his ears.
Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.
Whoever heeds discipline shows the way to life,
but whoever ignores correction leads others astray.
Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.
In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice;
in the morning I lay my requests before you
and wait expectantly.
About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them.
“If you do not listen, and if you do not resolve to honor my name,” says the Lord Almighty, “I will send a curse on you, and I will curse your blessings. Yes, I have already cursed them, because you have not resolved to honor me.”
My son, keep your father’s command
and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.
It is the Lord your God you must follow, and him you must revere. Keep his commands and obey him; serve him and hold fast to him.
If your brother or sister sins, go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over.
The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous,
and his ears are attentive to their cry.
Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”
So again I ask, does God give you his Spirit and work miracles among you by the works of the law, or by your believing what you heard?
What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs. Luke 12:3
Thank you and may God bless you!
