Have a blessed day! Remember that Jesus loves you and we at Black Creek love you. We invite you to attend any of our services
as you have opportunity. The world’s situation is horrible. Prophecy is being fulfilled each day which leads us to a personal question. Are you ready for the return of Jesus? Any day He may come with trumpet sounds. If you do not have a personal relationship with Jesus, invite Him to be your Savior and Lord. We can help. Call if you need someone to pray with you or help you find who Jesus really is. You will be glad you did! (843.393.1140)

A FEW WORDS FROM DR. BILL
We have now entered into one of the most influential months of the calendar year. July is a month of many celebrations. What do you think of when you hear the Declaration of Independence? There are many words in that document that bring life to an enormous amount of people. What about these words, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” These words have made a tremendous difference to countless people of many cultures and races. God has made us all the same with a will, spirit, soul and mind. Whether we like it or not, we belong to God in many ways. We are to choose a path in which to travel. Many go down the easy way while others travel the most difficult trek. I am glad we are not puppets on a string for God. He allows us the free choice to follow or reject him.
During this month of freedom that we all love and cherish, we are reminded that the love of God through Christ is a life altering factor in life. We enjoy the freedom of making our own choices. John 8:36 tells us that, “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” Do you and I realize how influential that can be in our lives? We are free in the Lord Jesus Christ to serve and worship him in many forms and worship styles. When all things come down to worship, it is how we communicate with God within our heart, soul, spirit and mind. Yes, Christ has made us free as we give him daily our availability and abilities. We should never be selfish about worship and never try to force a particular worship style or music on anyone.
This Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness really all comes from God. Our founding fathers built this country on Faith in God while recognizing that all people are created equal. Today, in our society we have moved so far away from these three aspects of the constitution that it surely sickens our Heavenly Father. In Isaiah 5:20 the word of God says, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter.” That is exactly what has happened in our country and world. The only way this will change is that the people come back to God. Just like the people of Israel acted towards God in disrespect, they came back to him. He forgave them as a nation and allowed them to grow and become prosperous once again. We do need forgiveness on a national level and personally in our hearts. This is truly freedom, when we can forgive someone for wrongs he or she have done to us. This forgiveness that Christ freely gives is truly liberating and we should share that with others also.
So when we celebrate the fourth of July, let us reflect on what God really wants from us individually and as a nation. Give more of each of us to his kingdom, service and build the fellowship. This includes our devotion, attendance, God’s great and abiding love. and service as we truly surrender to the leadership and lordship of our Savior.
As always, may the love of God our Father and Jesus Christ fill your hearts and souls with his abiding presence and may he write the record of his love upon each of us daily. I hope you all have a Happy 4th of July.
