Resurrection Fellowship, the pastors, the staff, and all the congregation cordially invite you to come by our church, to praise and worship the Lord, and to have a excellent fun time in Christian fellowship. The doors are open to all, we would feel highly honored if you did, and you would be very welcome. Come on by! I personally recommend the the Saturday evening service starting at 5PM. But there is also excellent worship on Sundays at 08:30 and 10:30, and all services are live online.

This is the second part of the series "Be Rich", received on Saturday, October 8, 2016. It deals with how to honor God with your abundance. The sermon is available at: http://www.rez.org/sermons/

  • Give willingly, with a heart for the future.
  • We are not very good at being rich…
  • Be of a “get to” faith, not a “have to” religion.
  • When you serve the Lord, “YOU” will be better off.
  • What would happen if we got an “I get to” philosophy instead of an “I have to” philosophy?
  • Blessings can be that catalyst to praise.
  • The heart of God is not moved by how much you give, but by how much of our heart we put into that giving…
  • A few tips on how to give in a God-pleasing fashion…
    • Give obediently. Be faithful to the commands of God.
    • Give joyfully. Make yourself and God joyful by making others joyful. Joyful giving blesses you an others.
    • Give in covenant. With God, with your church, with your family in Christ. Give to those in whom you have a covenant relationship with.
    • Give with vision. Don't just give to whatever. Give looking to God's plan and for the future.
    • Give to be blessed. Give to be in the flow of Jehovah-Jireh.
    • Give to make a difference in the lives of others.
    • Give out of devotion. Be madly in love with Jesus. Be the bride of Christ! heart

The Christian Thought of the Day is one of the more fun sections of alreaud.net.  As we add a new Christian Thought of the Day, whether a scripture reading or a quote from a pastor, or from a teacher, we also add it to the Christian Thought of the Day Archive. Some of them are inspired, some relate to personal struggles or issues, and some are related to current events that our world, nation, state, or city is going through. As they get changed on a regular basis (we try, LOL!) and aren't currently archived in any other fashion, as opposed to articles or book pages, we've using this book format, starting with the October 1, 2016 CTOTD. Hope you enjoy this endeavor, and Blessings!

This is the first part of the series "Be Rich", received on Saturday, October 1, 2016. It deals with having the correct mindset for being rich. The sermon is available at: http://www.rez.org/sermons/

  • The Bible is the only religious text that has predictive prophesies that have come true hundreds and thousands of years after the prophesy was spoken.
  • Plant roots by your actions and how you interact with others (Luke 3:11-15)
  • Determine to give even out of lack. God gives abundantly.
  • To prepare the way for Jesus, John the Baptist a lot of times went to their wallets. Meaning beliefs and attitudes that the people had about money.
  • Connect your abundance with the Giver…
  • God is Jehovah- Jireh. God provides.
  • When we lead with actions, feelings follow.
  • We need to live the Way so that prosperity complements our faith, which makes people say “I want what they have…”

Scripture verses: Luke 3:11-15, 2 ♦ Corinthians 8:9, 9:11 ♦ Ecclesiastes 5:10,12 ♦ Proverbs 18:11

Be Rich Series

This is a sermon series done by Pastor Jonathan Wiggins, Senior Pastor of Resurrection Fellowship in Loveland, Colorado on what the significance is of being rich and how God wants us to act with the blessings He has given us. There is nothing wrong with being rich, and Jesus never looked down on being blessed financially. In all actuality, as Americans if we are making $48,000 or more annually, we are in the top 1% of the world's wage earners as compared to the other 99% of the world's inhabitant's! The Lord is so good in blessing us with such pecuniary abundance! Praise the Lord! smiley

Back on the Job Hunt

After working for a couple of years in Dairy service, I'm back out looking for a job. One is never too old for new things, LOL. And as one of the Proverbs says, a laborer's hunger works for them. I'm looking for something with computers, IT, websites, or something in the warehouse. Great job I put in a resume for today, working as a Material's Specialist for a helicopter outfit. That would be nice, as I love being around the airport, airplanes, and just flying things in general. I must get that from my feline buddies, who love flying things too... wink So never think you are too old to do new things, and remember you'll get plenty of sleep when you're dead!

Thanksgiving!

We should always have in mind that all good things come from the Lord, and an attitude of thankfulness is proper. The Lord does not give us strife, harm, addiction, nor any of the ills of society. The Lord, rather, allows the enemy to tempt us and sometimes touch us with these things. Though none can fathom or understand the mind of God (How could the finite encompass the infinite?) and His reasons for allowing things, we can rest assured through faith that God tests us sometimes via the crucible of fire. When He does so, we are refined as gold or steel is in a smelter, and we are purer, stronger, and better for it. Thus we should always thank the Lord for the little and big things in our life, even when we are in the fire of testing...

Christian Studies and Readings

These are pages dedicated to reading about Christ, Christian topics, and things of our Lord. These started when I became a member of Resurrection Fellowship, after hearing some great, pertinent, and penetrating sermons. Not all may appreciate these pages, but I didn't either, before I found the Lord. Or I would better say, the Lord touched my life. It's not been the same since, I can testify to the truth of that. So whatever your background, denomination, orientation, or whatever, these pages are for you. With that in mind I pray that these pages allow you to better understand our Lord, to get closer to Him, and to allow His touch in your life, in Jesus's Name, Amen!

The "Lord's Prayer" for modern times

Member for

Our Father,
Who lives in heaven,
Holy be your name.
Your kingdom come, Your will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven.
Thank you for giving us today's bread and blessings,
And please forgive us our sins,
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
Please lead us from temptation,
And deliver us from the clutches of the Evil One.
For yours is the kingdom and power and glory!
Forever, in Jesus' name, Amen.

Jesus told us “7 And when you pray, do not keep babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words.  8Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.Matthew 6:7-8 (NIV)

We must remember that God does not lead us into temptation, but He does allow us to be tested by them.  God has also promised that he won't allow us to be tempted beyond what we can bear (1 Corinthians 10:13). {quoted from Zondervan Life Application Study Bible, NIV}

Jesus gave us the template for us to pray in Matthew 6:9-13 and Luke 11:2-4. Jesus did not say to verbatim repeat the words in the Lord's Prayer, like a mantra. I pray as above because:

  • We live in modern times and the vernacular is different.
  • I believe in thanking God for what he gives freely and consistently every day.
  • I was taught to say please and thank you, especially to our elders and superiors.
  • We can only sin against God, not one another. We do trespass against one another.
  • Praise God first, give thanks, then present your requests. That is the template for praying to God.

This is Part Three of the series, and are notes taken from the sermon given by Pastor Jonathan Wiggins on Saturday, July 5, 2014.

► Exodus 6:6-7 contains the four promises.
► “Deliverance”: I have issues…
► We need to connect with new believers to help them move forward. We need Godly friends to help pull us out of our holes filled with muddy water…
► We need to be nice to our fellow parishioners. Don't let visitors think that they are invisible. So turn on your welcome…
► Small groups connect, protect and grow. (See Rez's small groups)
► Read in the Bible about the proper use of the gifts of the Spirit. 1 Corinthians 14:1-39.
► Six Flags over Jesus!
