Pastor’s Note 5-1-22

Paul writes to the church in Corinth in 2 Corinthians 5:17; “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things become new. 

The decree from Paul is one of hope and excitement, old things are passed away and all things become new. Every single day we have the opportunity to start something new and to pass away old things. To become new is to end old things. To end old things is to start fresh anew. If we are to be a new creature we have to set aside the old way of doing things. It’s a change of mind, it’s a change of doing things the way we used to. In order for you to become new, you have to make a decision to start anew. 

As we start a new month of the year, let us endeavor to start something new. Better than that, let’s start something new for Christ, because what is done for Christ will last. Let us start a new prayer life. Let us begin to live a life that is pleasing to Christ. The old way, you feel, may have been working for you, but it wasn’t working for Christ. Christ must increase, but I must decrease. 

I want to be a new creature and do the things that will bring me in to Christ. The start of something new is always exciting, but I must continue in Christ to fulfill His purpose for my new life.

Will you be a new creature in Christ?

Pastor’s Note 2-1-22

If there is one Scripture that prevails when you begin to look into the birth of revivals it is always this one. . .2 Chronicles 7:14 KJV; “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

This verse is contingent on God’s people doing something.  If we humble, pray, seek and turn, we change who we are.  If we want a refreshing, a renewal, a revival, we need to resolve to change our lives.  

 If these requirements are fulfilled then God will begin to shift things in the spiritual world.  He will hear, forgive, and heal. 

We all want to be heard.  We all a want to be forgiven.  We all want to be healed and healthy.  We know if we do the things necessary to make our lives better we need to make certain changes. 

Many now are in need of our prayers dealing with different challenges of life.  

Just knowing what God will do if we will do our part, ought to make every one of us seek to pray and deepen our spiritual life. 

Spiritual awakening has always found its roots when the Church found its place of prayer. 

It all starts with prayer!
