Love and Justice Church will start meeting at 10:30 am Sunday mornings starting on August 2nd. Mark this on your calendars and tell everyone who hasn’t been in awhile. Im excited for this change and I do believe it will benefit us as a church to meet earlier together on the Lord’s day. I love you all!

It is ever the Holy Spirit’s work to turn our eyes away from self to Jesus; but Satan’s work is just the opposite of this, for he is constantly trying to make us regard ourselves instead of Christ. He insinuates, “Your sins are too great for pardon; you have no faith; you do not repent enough; you will never be able to continue to the end; you have not the joy of His children; you have such a wavering hold of Jesus.” All these are thoughts about self, and we shall never find comfort or assurance by looking within. But the Holy Spirit turns our eyes entirely away from self: He tells us that we are nothing, but that “Christ is all in all.” Remember, therefore, it is not thy hold of Christ that saves thee—it is Christ; it is not thy joy in Christ that saves thee—it is Christ; it is not even faith in Christ, though that be the instrument—it is Christ’s blood and merits; therefore, look not so much to thy hand with which thou art grasping Christ, as to Christ; look not to thy hope, but to Jesus, the source of thy hope; look not to thy faith, but to Jesus, the author and finisher of thy faith. We shall never find happiness by looking at our prayers, our doings, or our feelings; it is what Jesus is, not what we are, that gives rest to the soul. If we would at once overcome Satan and have peace with God, it must be by “looking unto Jesus.” Keep thine eye simply on Him; let His death, His sufferings, His merits, His glories, His intercession, be fresh upon thy mind; when thou wakest in the morning look to Him; when thou liest down at night look to Him. Oh! let not thy hopes or fears come between thee and Jesus; follow hard after Him, and He will never fail thee.
“My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness:
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.”
I do not believe one can settle on how much we ought to give. I am afraid the only safe rule is to give more than we can spare. In other words, if our expenditure on comforts, luxuries, amusements, etc., is up to the standard common among those with the same income as our own, we are probably giving away too little. If our charities do not at all pinch or hamper us, I should say they are too small. There ought to be things we should like to do and cannot do because our charitable expenditure excludes them.” – C.S. Lewis
Hey Love and Justice,
I wanted to update you guys about a change I had to make with our podcast. The old podcast host site kept acting up so I decided that I would change the site where we host our podcasts. That being said, everyone who is subscribed to the old podcast will have to subscribe to the new podcast by clicking here, or by clicking the itunes box below. Once you click there it will bring you to the podcast page in the itunes store. From there you just need to click on subscribe and you will be taken care of. Thank you and sorry for any inconvenience.
I just wanted to remind you all about Sharefest this saturday. We will meet at Love and Justice Church at 9:30 am and leave shortly after to Johnnie L. Williams Municipal Gym at 720 NW 8th street, okc, ok 73102. We will be painting, landscaping and having a neighborhood cookout. All of this takes place April 18th from 10am – 2pm. Please come out and lets serve our community and display the love of Christ to those who do not know Him!
Hey Love and Justice Church,
I wanted to remind you all of the time change this Sunday. We will be meeting at 10:30 in the morning instead of 3:00 in the afternoon. I know this is going to be hard for us because we always do things in the afternoon or evening but I really think we can do it, at least just this once. haha.
So remember, we are meeting at 10:30 to celebrate our great God and Saviour, Jesus Christ who is risen from the dead and seated at the right hand of God the Father. Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!
