A Letter From Pastor 4-1-21

Bible with Flowers

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!

A Letter From Pastor 1-1-21

“Happy New Year!”  These three words bring hope and excitement this time of year. 

Happy is what we all want to be.  Happiness is a choice that we can make daily.  We know what the opposite of happy is, it is sad.  The weeping prophet Jeremiah wrote in Lamentations 3:21-23; This I recall to my mind, therefore I have hope. It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.  They are new every morning.  We are happy when we get something new.  New is what we like most.  This new year offers new beginnings, new challenges, new expectations, new experiences and new opportunities.  The apostle Paul writes 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 are become new.

The old year is behind us and the new year lies ahead of us.  The next 365 can bring something new into our lives.  We need a new touch.  We need a new and fresh anointing.  God wants to do something new for you.  I pray we walk in the newness of life in Jesus Christ everyday.  So instead of “Happy New Year” how about “Happy New Day!”  Everyday can be happy in the Lord. 

 

May God bless you in the new year 2021!

A Letter From Pastor 10-4-20

 
A new season is upon us, it is obvious, you can sense it and see it. The change that we feel in the air and the change that we see with our eyes is telling us a lot about our Creator. The most notable thing about autumn is what we see before the winter season begins. Our God saves His best work for last. Each season brings something different. Spring time brings forth new blossoms of life, that are fulfilled with flowers of maturity in the summer time. Then with a spectacular display of every color imaginable our eyes capture the beauty, that our Creator allows us to see, before the winter season begins.

 

On the calendar, we all go through the same season together, but in life we all go through different seasons at different times. Every season differs from the last. Some seasons are like winter, dark and cold. Other seasons are like spring, it brings forth new life and new beginnings. As we go through different seasons of life, it brings about a maturity that will help us grow.

 

We seem to think that our younger years were some of our best years, but I have found that God withholds His greatest blessings for the latter times of our life. The longer I live I have found Him to be faithful to those that have weathered the storms of life, and have remained faithful until the very end. The older I become the more I gain understanding about the grace and mercy of God. My knowledge, earlier in life, does not compare to what I know now. I am becoming increasingly aware of the depths of God’s mercy and love towards myself and others.

 

Our best days are ahead of us. The Bible says, “The latter rain shall be greater than the former rain.” Just hold on until the glorious return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. What we see here on earth, the beauty and splendor of it all, will not compare to what He has in store for us in heaven. It will be spectacular. It will be glorious. We are living in the last days, and God is saving His best for last!

A Letter from Pastor 9/1/20

Mask and Hand Sanitizer

Its without saying, this has been an unusual yea

It goes without saying this has been an unusual year.

As we step into September and begin the final month of summer, we find ourselves in an unprecedented time.
Usually the state fair is in full swing and parents are preparing their children for a new school year. Unfortunately things are a little bit different this year.
 
Fall sports are canceled and the words “hybrid learning” has been introduced to our schools and children. New phrases have been introduced to our society. All of this has brought about a concern to my spirit and a disturbance to our world.
 
I walk through a store and I hear a voice speaking instructions, over the intercom, on how to walk, cough, sneeze and wash my hands. I digress.
 
Things have changed. With all this change I am concerned and convinced that this is merely a distraction of epic proportions.
 
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.

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;

So, in this unique and challenging time, 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.
