Pastor’s Note 9-1-22

As we step into September and begin the final few days of summer, we find ourselves seeing the daylight hours growing short. A change has come in the hours of daylight and pretty soon more hours of darkness than light.
 
With the change that comes with the changing of the season, Jesus remains the same.
 
We change, people change. Our lives are constantly full of change. With all this change around us, we must not change on how we feel about Jesus in our lives.
 
We must maintain a strong relationship with God almighty and not allow voices of distraction to get in our ears. We cannot allow voices of the world to speak into our life.  It is a spirit of deceit and distraction that has settled in around us. In other words more dark times.
 
The word of God is our instruction manual on how to live. The New Testament is filled with warnings of what is to come.
 
2 Thessalonians 2:1-3; “Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2. That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 3. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
 
We must be very careful with what we do with all of the changes that are happening all around us. We must be careful of what we allow in our lives.
 
So, let us remain focused on the task ahead of us. Let us not be distracted with everything that we are going through. We must block out the voices of distraction and deception so that we can hear what the voice of the Lord is speaking to you and I, the church.

Pastor’s Note 4-1-22

Easter is always a great time of the year.  Personally I think it is the greatest of all days.

There is something special about Christmas, our Savior came to the earth, wrapped in flesh, and took on the form of a human.  I’m not taking away from the birth of Jesus, but everyone is born.

There is something special about the cross, I’m not taking away from why Jesus died on cross for the sins of the world, but everyone dies.  

But, there is something extraordinary or supernatural about Jesus conquering death and the grave.  There has only been one man who was dead for three days and rose again from the grave.  There is only one who has done that and His name is Jesus. 

Romans 8:11 says; “But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also bring to life your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwells in you.”  We live because He lives!  

I’m thankful for Christmas.  I’m thankful for Good Friday.  But, I’m so very thankful that He is alive forevermore.  That’s the real meaning for Easter!
