Quartzsite First Assembly

 
      A Message From Pastor Bruce 
 
 
 
I would like to welcome you to our very unique town of Quartzsite, Arizona. Here you will find exciting places to explore and places to eat. There are local businesses and seasonal vendors from which to shop for that special item for you or a loved one - including tons of rocks!! 
 
As the Pastor of the First Assembly of God Church, I would like to personally invite you to one of our services. We’d like to get to know you, and you to know us. You will find us to be a friendly, loving church that believes the Bible to be the inspired, written word of God; that we are created to worship God in Spirit and in Truth and that we are to help those in need.
 
I look forward to meeting you sometime during your stay in Quartzsite.
 
God Bless,               
Pastor Bruce Swart

The Problem of Pride

Read Jeremiah 47:1 through 48:47

When we compare ourselves to others and decide that we are superior to them, we are walking in pride. A man with a prideful heart believes he is better than another person because of greater experience, qualifications, or abilities. Pride tells us that we deserve more than what we’re getting or more than someone else.

“We have heard of Moab’s pride—how great is her arrogance!—of her insolence, her pride, her conceit and the haughtiness of her heart” (Jeremiah 48:29).

God was judging Moab because of Moab’s pride. Pride led to Moab’s destruction as a nation.

Our pride can be removed when we put our lives in proper perspective with a correct view of God. When we realize how great God is and choose to compare ourselves to Him instead of to others, there is no room for pride in our hearts.

We must accept that we do not deserve more than others. The good things we have in our lives come because the goodness of Christ, not because we deserve them.

Prayer Suggestion: Lord, please help me to walk humbly before You today.

Quicklook: Jeremiah 48:29–31
