The Church in Moses Lake is a meeting place for Christians and Believers who live in the Moses Lake, Washington area. We meet in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We gather together to read and share the Word of God and encourage one another in our Life in Christ. You are most welcome to join us in Praise and Worship, but If you are not able to attend, the recorded messages are available to minister to you. You will find our meeting times and location on the Contact Us tab.

1Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. For me to write the same things to you is not tedious, but for you it is safe. Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the mutilation! For we are the circumcision, who worship God in the Spirit, rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.2 Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!
3I now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up in my flesh what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ, for the sake of His body, which is the church, of which I became a minister according to the stewardship from God which was given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God, the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints.4 For what thanks can we render to God for you, for all the joy with which we rejoice for your sake before our God, night and day praying exceedingly that we may see your face and perfect what is lacking in your faith?5 Rejoice always.
6In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, receiving the end of your faith—the salvation of your souls.7Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.8Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.
The Supplied Life by Bill Freeman
The Supplied Life has been republished and available for purchase for a suggested donation of $12.00.
The very nature of the Christian life requires that we live a life of being daily supplied. We begin this life by receiving, and we go on by receiving. The Christian life is a supplied life. It is a life that has already been lived out and preservedfor us in the Holy Spirit. Now, that “lived out life” is received and supplied to us. The Christian life is not dependent on our own resources or any potential in ourselves. It has everything to do with the rich resources of Another life. Indeed, The Supplied Life is Christ Himself. He has been prepared by God for us and is now being supplied and furnished to us. The way God does this is by organically joining us as branches to Christ, the true Vine (John 15:1, 4-5). Thus, the supplied life comes by abiding as a branch in the Vine. Our daily need is to spend time with the Lord cultivating our life of abiding in Him so as to receive all the riches of His Person and work.
Here is the daily devotional for March 19th
Led into a new reaction
“As it is written: For Your sake we are killed all day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.” Romans 8:36-37
The self-life does not know how to properly relate to environ- ment. It blames circumstances. It blames the wife, the husband, the boss — whomever. But in the verses above, we see how Paul related to his environments. He was living out of another source, and from that source he gathered up all his environments as raw material for the self to be terminated, for the self to be crossed out once again, so that resurrection life could come forth.
An undealt-with self does not properly relate to environment. Rather, it is confused. It is frustrated. It is hurt. It is hoping for a better day. It does everything but deal with the Lord. It does everything but allow itself to be terminated. In its ignorance it does not know how to relate to environment, how to relate in life, or how to relate in the truth. These are all characteristics of an ignorant and
undealt-with self, and expose that we are still coming from the wrong place. We do not yet come from life. We do not meet our environments with God’s view. God’s view of our environment is that all day long we are just being led to put to death the practices of the body (Rom. 8:13-14). This means we are being led into a new kind of reaction — led to put to death, led to react with the cross. We are being led into another circumstance for more of the self to surface so that it can be interrupted and terminated. In this way all things are working together for good — for our conformity to Christ (Rom. 8:28-29).
