Inspiration for Today's Church from the Desk of Tim Barker
The Lord with Us
From the Book of Hebrews
We live in an extremely busy world.
Even so, God wants to be our resting spot, that place we can go to when we have a true relationship with Jesus.
Blame what we want for our restlessness and losses, but obedience to God’s Word is the only path that can open up our hearts to God’s best for us.
It starts with accepting Jesus’ sacrifice for us.
Do you have a relationship with Jesus? The rewards are great, but if we fail to heed the warnings in the Word, the consequences are also great.
Even if we call ourselves Christian, we must live according to God’s will. The Lord is with us when we walk with Him. This is the message from the book of Hebrews.
Read chapters titled Rest in a Busy World, Entering God’s Presence, Power in Thanksgiving! and more! You will not be disappointed.
Get this book. Read it. Reread it and absorb the truths revealed through the book of Hebrews. You will discover THE LORD WITH YOU every step of the way!
A Message from the Desk of Tim Barker:
As the District Superintendent for the South Texas District of the Assemblies of God, my goal to win souls for Jesus is foremost in my thoughts every day.
When I read the book of Hebrews, I realize salvation is only the beginning. God has so much more for us. This book is our instruction manual to obtain God’s best as we walk with our Lord.
I desire everyone I meet to know the depth of God’s love for them. Our Christian walk begins with salvation, and Jesus invites each of us to join Him in this fulfilling journey along the road to eternity.
