Family, you are a part of a family. You have desires as a family member. You are whole as a son or daughter of our Dad above. Plain and simple, you belong in this family, you belong.
We are more than blessed as you grow in your understanding of how much you belong. In fact, because you are walking in this new life, you will see how your testimony and presence affect others in a positive way.
What a blessing you are!
Our hope is in the coming of our Savior; our delight is in treating Him as He is, our Dad. Our placement and convictions reflect those things that are important, we treat each other as sisters and brothers of the Most High God and He honors us with one another.
You, we, our (Ephesians 1:11-14), don’t forgot these pronouns, and train your mind in the spiritual workout of a Christian single person. You are in possession of the Kingdom that you are a significant part. One Body, One Baptism, One Spirit, One JESUS, run the race of faith to God’s full completion in you (Philippians 2:13, 1 Corinthians 9:24-25 and Hebrews 12:1-3).
Workout what you are learning, put to practice the simple and sometimes hard lessons and know that in all things God works out for the good of those that love Him through faith in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:28).
You are a precious member of the body of Christ Jesus, be blessed MACs!

What does the Word say about faith?
What does the Word say about hope?
What does the Word say about Love?
Like a scripture-searching Berean (Acts 17:11), you all took to the passages *IN* the Word to find out the answers to last Saturday’s questions. It’s within the Word that we find life, the true life of obedience that leads to a closer, more intimate relationship with God (Deuteronomy 30). Choose Life! In the character of a Mature Accountable Christian single, what area is God asking you to, “Choose me, choose the life that I have for you?”
As our Faith grows in the Hope of running towards the Love that is eternal in our Jesus, let’s make decisions as ministry participants, volunteers and leaders to love “the way, the truth and the life” (John 14:6) wholeheartedly. Let’s ask God, as a group of age 30 and over singles, “search me, Oh God and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts” (Psalm 139:23), “Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me” (Psalm 50:10).”
In our next series, “Love Redeemed”, we ask you in the next 6 weeks to really come to God about your own personal struggles in relationships; whether they are with friends or with potential partners of the opposite sex. Bring to Him the heart of the matters of your own heart and ask the Holy Spirit to expose those things that the Light of the world can make new, within you.
Jesus has His hand on the MACs Ministry and this series is sure to impact you deeply! God bless each of you, we look forward to seeing you on Saturday, March 31st!

Worship time with the band Third Rail at our MACs Live Session on March 17, 2012
Does this sound familiar…
“I don’t get it!”
“What’s not to get…?”
“THEM! They are always the same and it always comes to this! It’s like I’m destined to be WITHOUT…while everyone else is WITH…”
“What are you gonna do, maybe there is more to the story?”
“Like what?!? It seems like I can barely pick friends too, it’s like a never-ending chain! THEN I end up running back to the same fiasco with that same…uhhh! It never changes!”
“Well…maybe you have a broken picker…what if it’s you…?”
So many of us have experienced the downside of relationships in our personal lives. In fact, this downside can be the catalyst for all types of inward turmoil; fear, doubt, hopelessness, depression, anxiety, even judgment. God has a plan for you that includes the Holy Spirit’s guidance in your personal life and personal relationships. All of the fruits of His Spirit come with His guidance (2 Peter 1:5-8), but we have to take responsibility for our actions, inner worries, doubts and give them to God wholly. Jesus IS the answer; allow God to do the work in your life and heart to change the past patterns of the old you in this new year, 2012.
We want to ask you; if you could ask a licensed, Christian psychological therapist one question, what would it be? Maybe you would ask…
- why are all the men/women that I pick the same, but in different bodies?
- why do I keep going back to the same man/woman, even though I know I shouldn’t? How do I break away?
- why does being alone scare me so much?
