Romans 8:37, “But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us.” Paul begins Romans 8 with a reminder that there is no condemnation in Christ, he ends the chapter with the assuring words of no separation from the love of Christ, and he makes that marvelous affirmation, “we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us.” How can we be more than conquerors? Four words: 1. Recognition. There are certain truths we need to recognize. The ownership of God, He is in control. The stewardship of man. We are simply managers, not possessors of our time, talents and material possessions. We need to recognize the providence of God. He is at work in our lives and His main purpose is to conform us into the image of His Son (Romans 8:29). We also need to be aware of the brevity of life. 2. Decision. We need to decide the master of our lives, the mission of our lives, and the mind-set of our lives. 3. Dedication. Life without a cause is purposeless. We all need a cause, a banner to march under. Romans 12:1 calls us to offer our bodies as living sacrifices to God. 4. Anticipation. We live our lives with hope. Adoniram Judson was an early missionary to India. He was often persecuted, ridiculed and put into prison. One day some hecklers came by and shouted to Judson, “How bright are your prospects now?” Judson replied, “My prospects are as bright as the promises of God.” With that kind of hope, we are more than conquerors. When we recognize God’s truths, decide to live within God’s will, dedicate our lives to Christ, and anticipate a glorious future with God, we can live as more than a conqueror through Him who loved us. - Allan Eldridge MISSIONS -Eastern European Mission (Bibles) -Lima, Peru -Kemelton Harawa - Malawi, Africa - Derrick John - Moraikobai, Guyana -Vitaly Rodichev - Ukraine -Steven Lucas - Hurley, Mississippi DEACONS James Breckenridge - Communion, Disaster Relief Skip Burris - Worship Service Bubba Bullington - Audio Visual Media Randy Curry - Food Give Away Russ Davidson - Involvement, Member Board Mark Erwin - Legal, Youth Dale Eubanks - Seniors David Haynes - Worship Service, Grounds Maurice James - Finance, Audio Visual Media Tony Kendall - Missions Casey Melton - Lads to Leaders David Pahman - Education Mike Shavers - Benevolence, Communion to Shut-ins Tommy Wasden - Family Ministry, Attendance, Transportation YOUTH & FAMILY MINISTER - Andrew Howell MINISTER - Allan Eldridge ELDERS Jerrold Eubanks Marvin Dean *Jimbo Jordan George Holcomb *Chairman for the month of March OFFICE INFORMATION Nancy Talbot, Office Manager Email: [email protected] Monday - Friday 8 am - 4 pm Phone (251) 345-8050 Fax (251) 345-8051 WEBSITE - WEBMASTER www.regencycc.org Andrew Howell WORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES Sunday Bible Class: 9 am Worship: 10 am & 6 pm Wednesday Morning: 10:30 am Evening: 7 pm FOR THE RECORD February 22, 2015 Sunday Bible Class . . . . . . . . . . 208 Sunday Morning Worship . . . . . . 342 Sunday Evening Worship . . . . . . 395 Contribution . . . . . . . . . . . . . $10,875 . . .
