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

Self-Esteem

Read 1 Kings 21:1 through 22:50; Luke 20:27—47

Jenni ran for school board because she wanted to make a difference in her school system. She worked hard and even became the chairperson. People recognized her wherever she went. They paid attention to what she said, and she was asked to be the speaker at functions. Not until after she was off the board, did she realize just how much she enjoyed the attention. She had come to depend on it to boost her self-esteem. When she realized what had happened, she repented of depending on others for her value instead of on God.

“They like to walk around in flowing robes and love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and have the most important seats in the synagogues and places of honor at banquets” (Luke 20:46).

Jenni fell into the same trap that the Jewish teachers did in Jesus’ time. It fed their egos to receive honor from others. It can true of Christians today too. However, Christ gave His life for humanity. That gives everyone value. Nothing else is needed.

Challenge for Today: Examine your life to see what you depend on for self-esteem.

Quicklook: Luke 20:45–47
