"Thanks" for visiting our site...

Crossway has as it's main purpose and goal, to provide an environment of love and joy, in which you can begin, nurture and mature in a REAL relationship with Jesus Christ and other fellow believers.

We don't "play church"...and are eager to walk beside you, encourage you, as we endeavor to serve the Lord together. We are REAL people! We are not perfect, but are sincere!

You will know and feel the warm welcome the moment you walk through the doors.

If you are seeking a church home "Crossway" is a nice place to worship, just as Three Rivers is know by the motto of " a nice place to live". Come and see for yourself!

It's no use walking anywhere to preach unless our walking is our preaching.

Sermon Notes

Who Do We Obey #3

To love God is to Obey God.     Jeremiah 7:21-24.      John 15:10,11

THE FREEDOM OF OBEDIENCE - In what ways is obedience to God true freedom? 

Genesis 3:10-11.

Obedience keeps our relationship with God open and free. Adam and Eve got what they wanted: an intimate knowledge of both good and evil. But they got it by doing evil, and the results were disastrous. Sometimes we have the illusion that freedom is doing anything we want. But God says that true freedom comes from obedience and knowing what not to do. The restrictions he gives us are for our good, helping us avoid evil. We have the freedom to walk in front of a speeding car, but we don't need to be hit to realize it would be foolish to do so. Don't listen to Satan's temptations. You don't have to do evil to gain more experience and learn more about life. 

Deuteronomy 30:15-20

 Obeying God is in our best interest. God has called us to keep his commands, while reminding us that his laws are not hidden from us or beyond our reach. Have you ever said you would obey God if you knew what he wanted? Have you ever complained that obedience is too difficult? The Bible reveals His laws, instructions. Obeying them is reasonable, sensible, and beneficial. The most difficult part of obeying God's laws is simply deciding to start now.

1 Chronicles 15:13-15

Obey God, even when we don't understand, is true freedom. When David's first attempt to move the ark failed, he learned an important lesson: when God gives specific instructions, it is wise to follow them precisely. We may not fully understand the reasons behind God's instructions, but we do know that his wisdom is complete and his judgment infallible. The way to know God's instructions is to know his Word. But just as children do not understand the reasons for all their parents' instructions until they are older, we may not understand all of God's reasons in this life. It is far better to obey God first, and then discover the reasons. We are never free to disobey God just because we don't understand. 2 Peter 1:3,4

 Obedience to what? Love the Lord your God. Love your neighbor. Love your enemies. Give to the Lord Tithe and offerings. Be Baptized. Be faithful in serving Him. Forgive.
