Sermon Summary | September 2, 2018
“THO SE VALLEY EXPERIENCES” (Mark 9:14-29, 1-13) by OUR PASTOR STEPHEN KING:

We all enjoy those mountain top experiences, but we are not afforded the opportunity to dwell on the mountain. Most of the time, we will soon encounter the realities o f life, following a “mountain top experience.” We must learn to use the lessons learned on the mountain as we navigate the difficulties of the valley.

Peter, James, and John had experienced the glory of Jesus on the Mount of Transfiguration. Their experience was so wonderful that Peter desired to remain on the mountain. Jesus knew they could not stay there; He had much yet to accomplish. He had taken them there to reveal His glory, which would serve to strengthen their faith as they endured the difficulties of ministry following His death, resurrection, and ascension.
As these men made their way down the mountain, they were immediately met with difficulty. There would be no time to rest in the beauty of the moment. They were back among the every day cares of life and living, and would need to be ready to endure the difficulties it brings.

We all face difficulties in life. Often these difficulties are beyond our ability to handle. Faith in the Lord is essential to overcome and experience victory. Are you struggling in a valley of life? Does it seem as if your faith is weak? The Lord has the ability to meet our needs and increase our faith. We must trust Him to provide, even when it appears hopeless. Maybe you are like this young man who had been possessed by an evil spirit, in need of spiritual deliverance. Jesus provided the means of salvation. We must come to Him in repentance and faith. —Notes by USK
Giving Back To God!
Jesus said in Luke 6:38, “Give and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
