Thoughts From the Pastor

This morning read John Chapter 11. The story of Lazarus, how Lazarus died and Christ raised back to life. I thought yesterday how unfair that Brother Mearl was taken from us this week. Then I realized it was around this time that Lazarus died and was raised again. What a week to come into the Savior’s presence!! We know where Mearl is, and Who, he is with! It was also the time when the religious leaders started to earnestly hunt a way to kill Jesus. We know they were unsuccessful, we know God wins. If we are in Christ we also will win. Death for the believer is not the end, but a beginning. This week live in the new beginning that Christ gives each of us both in this world and in the next.

IN HIS LOVE, P.C.

Today read 2nd Chronicles 6: 28-31.

Notice there is a lot here : 1.) When there is a calamity of one type or another. 2.) God’s people are to pray. Supplication earnest continual prayer.  3.)God will hear. 4.) Forgiveness is asked for and given. 5.) God knows our hearts. 6.) People learn to fear the Lord, ( great respect and acknowledging Who, God is and recognizing the need to praise).  7.) God gives us all things including the opportunity to live where we do.

Are we living lives at this time that are leading others to Christ? Are we praying as Paul tells us to do without ceasing? This is the Christians time to shine. An opportunity to witness to those around us. Is God using this time to draw mankind as a whole back to Him? Are we helping or hindering that possibility?

Today pray and ask the Father to use us in a mighty way. Ask God for a healing in our nation. Seek God’s face. Most of all praise God for the gifts of life, love and salvation.  Be blessed until we see each other again face to face.    IN HIS LOVE,           P.C.

 

 

Thoughts From the Pastor

Read Revelation 2:1 – 7. How quickly we lose our passion and zeal for Christ. We do good deeds, we may even live a good lifestyle, but if we forget that Christ is He, Who we do these for we have it wrong!

Our  1st love, the Reason we our here as church. At this time as scattered church, do we remember to praise Jesus? Do we remember to live for Him and Him alone? Far too many people are living in fear, worries and anxieties. Do you still have peace and joy inside? If we walk with Jesus we realize that nothing can darken our hope. The government isn’t going to save us. Charmin isn’t going to save us, but Jesus will and continues to be with us! Today and all days remember your 1st love, Jesus!!

IN HIS LOVE, P.C.

Todays Thought from the Pastor

Today I encourage you to read John Chapter 11.The raising of Lazarus, a story we may all know.  This is a short time before Passover, likely this happened at this very time of the year. Notice Jesus didn’t arrive at the time they hoped he would, but rather when He needed to. Jesus knew about the situation and had things under His control. The miracle came right on time. Today we too ask for healing, we like Martha and Mary have fears, worries and faith struggles. Jesus knows about these things too, and He is still in control.

As this chapter proceeds we see that the enemies of Jesus plot against Him. We see that they cannot change God’s plans. Brothers and Sisters it’s the same today. All the plans of satan cannot prevail against Gods’ plan. Jesus has the same knowledge and love for us as He had then for Lazarus! We are save in the arms of Jesus, Who will never leave nor forsake us! Today look at your blessings and make the choice to Praise God!!

IN HIS LOVE P.C.

Thoughts From the Pastor

Read Matthew Chapter 25: 31 -46.  In this text the sheep is the believer, the goat the non believer, Which one are you? The sheep go together they follow the shepherd and graze on the good grass (scripture). They graze gently together. Goats on the other hand always have themselves in mind, they are stubborn and prone to fight and be self minded.

If Jesus would return soon, which one would He see you as? If the Lord returns tomorrow will you be in heaven or hell? We know works don’t save us, rather our works reflect Who our Shepherd is. You may think I’ve been in church all my life, I’m good! You can be in church all your life without living for Christ your still a goat!  Please in this time of uncertainty recommit yourself to Christ or if you’ve never done so give yourself to Christ. Now read  Psalm 95: 6-8. Will you hear His voice and heed it? Oh that all would, before it’s too late.  Today be blessed and comforted by He, Who has given His life that you might have eternal life.

IN HIS LOVE, P.C.

 

Today’s Thought from the Pastor

Today read Psalm 18: 46-49. God, Who will never leave His children. as we deal with the current state of the world, we have nothing to fear!! As God brought David through trial and war so He continues to be with His people. Today is a day of rejoicing for we know that God is in control!! Remember to give thanks and praise today for all God is, and what He does.  Let your heart and your mind focus on the One, True Living God, and praise Him with your entire being.

IN HIS LOVE, P.C.

Today’s Thought From the Pastor:

Read Psalm 91: 1-6: Notice God’s protective hand upon the faithful, they who dwell under God’s shadow. There is nothing, no disaster or disease that is more powerful than God. If you are afraid of the coronavirus, I ask why? Not that we should not be cautious, nor should we be in panic. Shouldn’t we as Christians live every day for Christ as if it’s our last day?? Know that God has a plan for each of us and nothing will overcome it! Be blessed and joyful in Christ!

IN HIS LOVE, P.C.

Today’s Thought From the Pastor

From Jeremiah 3: 16- 17a: “Thus says the Lord:

“Refrain your voice from weeping, and your eyes from tears; for your work shall be rewarded, says the Lord, and they shall come back `from the land of the enemy . There is hope in your future, says the Lord, “.

Hope, that is what we as Christians have. We need to share that hope, that peace, and the Love of Christ.  Today live in that hope, call someone to tell them you care. Be the example of Christ to someone today. What an opportunity we have!

IN HIS LOVE, P.C.

Today’s Thought From the Pastor

Please read Luke 21: 34 -36.  Notice we are to take heed (pay attention), to ourselves. We are to be ready when the Lord returns, and He will. Do we live each day for Jesus? Or especially at this time are we worried about self?

Today I remind you that God is in charge, not men or government, not even Doctors, but God. Is your life being lived for the One, Who gave you life, and provides for all our needs. Our task is to be ready for that day  when He returns. Our hearts need to be right Live each day as if it is your last, live it for Jesus.
