Join us Friday, July 16 for Worship and Prayer

On Friday July 16th, the NightWatch Manassas will host Gabriel & Briana Leonhard from The Prayer Furnace in Fredericksburg to lead our time of prayer and worship. Without question they’re extremely gifted musically as Gabriel plays the violin and Briana sings on the keyboard—yet, their hearts are fixated upon the King of Kings and His Presence is tangible when they minister unto Him. They visited us back in April and we caught a glimpse of the tremendous anointing that rests upon their ministry—hence, I would strongly urge you not to miss the opportunity to join us in worship and intercession.

They will be at New Covenant Fellowship from 7-9pm.


I hope to see you there as we worship the Father in spirit and truth!

The Gift of God is Eternal Life by Dick Halverson

The Gift of God is Eternal Life. It is free to anyone who will take it.
Perspective 3/4/96 – Dick Halverson

We cannot make a true statement about anything without excluding others – whatever area of life is being discussed.

Two plus two equals four. That excludes three and five. The shortest distance between two points is a straight line. Crooked lines need not apply.

We operate on this basis all the time – stating truths which by nature, exclude other views.
Error is a fact of life, too.

Yet there are those offended by Jesus’ statement, “I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

If Jesus is not the only way to the Father, how many other ways are there?
Or are all ways to the Father true ways?

If not, who decides which are the true ways and which are not?
How bad (or wrong) does a man have to be to miss the way  or how good (or right) does a man have to be to make it?

Unless we insist that any way is right and true, we eliminate some. And the minute we eliminate any, we are the judge of which ways are to be excluded.

Making us guilty of the same narrowness of which we accuse Jesus.

It is just possible that in the effort to broaden the way to God, we actually make it more exclusive than Jesus.

Think it through: can anyone come up with a way less exclusive than Jesus’ invitation, “whosoever will, may come”?

One can hardly issue a more generous invitation. If some condition more than willingness is required, what is that condition to be?

“The gift of God is eternal life.” It’s free to anyone who will take it.
