2013 is finally here! Over the last 3 months of 2012 Dr. Matthew Lee Smith, Lead Pastor at Pacific Baptist Church prayed, fasted and sought God’s face for His will and direction for the congregation there in El Segundo, California … and we are so excited to share this series of messages with you.
In today’s episode, which was delivered in January of 2013, Pastor Matt will show us how to please God. When we act by faith … when we choose to obey God as He has revealed Himself in His Word, he is pleased with us and he rewards us for such obedience …
If you would turn in your Bible to Matthew 6, we want to discover three specific acts of faith that God rewards. In fact, Jesus tells us that these three acts are things that all disciples should be doing on a regular basis …
And as Pastor Matt closes that prayer, we know you are as encouraged as the congregation in El Segundo was when he prayed it with them!
If you would like to explore how to enjoy a life God is pleased with, Dr. Smith has written a daily devotional book that will help you do just that!
In His Presence is a detailed look at walking with God through life’s ups and downs. Built around the premise that God welcomes you into His presence with joy and pleasure, In His Presence helps you see that the life of abundance can only be enjoyed when we take everything to the Lord and walk every day at His right hand.
You can order a copy of In His Presence from Amazon by clicking the link on the side panel of the Eagles In Leadership website.
Today’s episode was recorded live in El Segundo, California and edited by Ryan Longsworth in Los Angeles, California.
And now, until next time, we are praying that you would be filled with the love of God so that you can demonstrate His love to the lost and dying in your city! God bless!
