Summit News!


Hey, Summit Family,

It was my PRIVILEGE, a few days ago, to lead a “CELEBRATION OF LIFE” for Lois Johnson, a LONGTIME MEMBER of Central Christian Church, who WENT TO BE WITH THE LORD in her NINETIES! One of her FINAL REQUESTS was that I PREACH an “EVANGELISTIC MESSAGE” at her FUNERAL! She said, “I want to MAKE SURE all of THOSE ATTENDING know HOW to be ASSURED of HEAVEN!” What is THE ANSWER to the MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION ever asked?

A middle school TEACHER recently SHARED some of the “ANSWERS” he RECEIVED from STUDENTS on ASSIGNMENTS. One student said, “The PISTOL of a FLOWER is its ONLY PROTECTION against INSECTS.” Another THOUGHT the word GERMINATE meant to “BECOME a naturalized GERMAN CITIZEN” and that a VACUUM was “ WHERE the POPE LIVED.” “A FIBULA”, said another STUDENT, “is a SMALL LIE”; and “a TERMINAL ILLNESS is what HAPPENS when you GET SICK at the AIRPORT.” Kids say some FUNNY THINGS!

In The Bible JOB had a LOT of QUESTIONS, but HE and his FRIENDS kept GETTING their ANSWERS mixed up. But on the FINAL EXAM, Job got it RIGHT when he said, “I KNOW THAT MY REDEEMER LIVES” (Job 19:25).

All our GREAT and CONFUSING QUESTIONS can be ANSWERED in our LIVING REDEEMER! If you’re SUFFERING, He can EASE your PAIN. If you’re CONFUSED, He can CLEAR your MIND. If you’re FEARFUL, He can GIVE you PEACE. If you have BAD HABITS, He can HELP you CONQUER them. If you STRUGGLE with GUILT, He can FORGIVE your SINS. If you’re AFRAID of DEATH, He can GIVE you ETERNAL LIFE!


Acts 4:12 says, “ SALVATION is FOUND in NO ONE ELSE, for there is NO OTHER NAME under heaven GIVEN to MEN by which we MUST BE SAVED.” That’s the GOOD NEWS we need to SHARE with EVERYONE God PLACES in our path! Have YOU DONE SO this week?

This SUNDAY at 10 AM I’ll be sharing “PART 2” of my sermon in the MONEY MATTERS series, concerning “THE RIGHT VIEW” of our FINANCES. Do you WANT to “HAVE MORE“; make WHAT you have “GO FARTHER“; and “GET OUT OF DEBT“? I want to HELP YOU! More importantly, GOD WANTS TO HELP YOU! His Word HAS the ANSWERS! Be here! Love always, Bro. Joe
