Sunday, Feb. 21, 2010 – We had a full house this morning.
Rick opened the morning worship talking about the purpose of the Lockhart
Pegasus Ministry which is to help the boys successfully complete the Pegasus
program. It can be accomplished by the world’s way or by God’s way.
It is your choice! It is our prayer that each of you would choose God’s
He continued speaking about faith using
Heb 12:1-2 “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of
witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us
down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with
endurance the race God has set before us. 2 We do this by keeping our eyes on
Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy
awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in
the place of honor beside God’s throne.” Whatever your problem; throw
it off, get forgiveness and begin running the race God has set for you.
Get rid of the sin of unbelief.
If you are in the race then the way to win
it is by looking to Jesus, the author and finisher of your faith.
Cindy led the boys in music worship with “East
to West”, “Forever”, “I am Free”, “Holy is the Lord”
and “Mighty to Save” .
Our morning speaker was Luis Amaya who
started by asking the boys; “How many would want to be famous?” Almost
every hand in his audience was raised. And then Luis asked; “What
are you doing right now to accomplish what you are aiming for?” Almost
every hand came down.
Luis spoke of his early life experience where
his father taught him responsibility through the gift of a car which Luis had
to fix and maintain. How he had successfully operated his own “Sign
Painting” business for 26 years even though at the start everyone said he would
fail. He was successful because of his commitment and
determination. You can be famous through commitment and determination but
without God your success will become an anchor around your neck pulling you
down and robbing you of the happiness success should bring.
The key to becoming famous is to let God
do it and it starts by having the right attitude and the right interest:
Gal 6:14 “As
for me, may I never boast about anything except the cross of our Lord Jesus
Christ. Because of that cross, my interest in this world has been crucified,
and the world’s interest in me has also died.”
The center of your life must not be your
appearance, your street wise knowledge, your education, your friends or even
1 Cor. 2:2 “For
I decided that while I was with you I would forget everything except Jesus
Christ, the one who was crucified.”
Today begin by getting to know Jesus
Christ through the daily study of his word:
3:10 “I want to know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised him
from the dead. I want to suffer with him, sharing in his death,”
Luis ended by telling the boys how we
develop good and bad habits by practicing something everyday for 21 days.
Practice reading his word daily and it will become a habit that will enrich
your lives and in His eyes you will become famous.
Ken began his closing by giving the boys a
laugh by reciting some things he had learned in life:
of Mechanical Repair - After your hands become coated with grease, your nose
will begin to itch and you'll have to pee.
of Probability - The probability of being watched is directly proportional to
the stupidity of your act.
of Random Numbers - If you dial a wrong number, you never get a busy signal and
someone always answers.
of the Alibi - If you tell the boss you were late for work because you had a
flat tire, the very next morning you will have a flat tire.
Variation Law - If you change lines (or traffic lanes), the one you were
in will always move faster than the one you are in now (works every time).
of the Bath - When the body is fully immersed in water, the telephone rings.
of Biomechanics - The severity of the itch is inversely proportional to the
He invited anyone who had memorized the 23rd
Psalm to come forward and recite it. A young man came up on the stage and did a
fantastic job of reciting it.
Ken closed with all the boys speaking the 23rd Psalm.
