Welcome to our Church Website
From Pastor...[2 Corinthians 5:18]
"All this is from is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to Himself and gave us the
ministry of reconciliation."
Tensions, arguements, one upmanship, control, disrespect, enmity, and I dare say - demonic
words and actions, vicious gossip, and division can all oddly enough and in of all places, enter
and ruin ministry in Christian churches.
Then, Christian churches, built on the foundation of, as the hymn writer wrote, "The Church's One Foundation
is JESUS CHRIST, her Lord", slowly start to crumble.
Possibly, the worst result of all this is that people who loved each other as brothers and sisters in Christ
go seperate ways. And the work of our Lord, to make disciples of all nations, screeches to a halt.
I always wondered why the Bible, God's Holy inspired and inerrant Word, contains what it does and seems
quite a lot to read. Thinking of our humanity, our sins, our sinful pride, I can easily conclude though, that among all the things God's Word contains, what it does is to simply show us oursleves better than any mirror can. And it
shows us Himself as THE ONE, and ONLY ONE, I add, to help us see and live without all the tensions and gossip and disrespect and trying to control everything and not follow leadership and so on.
All of God's Word is precious. Each word and thought is divine. Sometimes a Word or complete Verse or
whole Chapter can lift us and transform us and bring us His unconditional love and unconditional forgiveness.
For me, on many occasions that "Whole Chapter" and some Complete verses in it and individual Words in a verse and chapter have brought special blessing and encouragement and direction in various situations.
What chapter of Holy Scripture am I speaking of? 2 Corinthians 5. Read it! Read it!
In regard to relationships and those which are destroyed by the gossip, the efforts to control everything, by the
powers of the demonic, God says in Chapter 5, Verse 17: Therefore if any one is in Christ, he is a NEW CREATION;
the old has passed away, behold the new has come. [Get this now in verse 18] "All THIS IS FROM GOD, who through Christ, [my note, here's THE WORD], RECONCILED, us to Himself, and, [another of my notes, get this], GAVE US THE MINISTRY OF, [yet another of my notes, of all things - He gave Us - the ministry of what?] RECONCILIATION!!!!!!!
Reconciliation is a change from enmity to friendship in it's most simple meaning. The reconciliation God speaks of
in the Bible always comes from Him. He's the One who loves us and forgives us. Jesus went to the cross to
pay the price, to be the sacrifice for us and our evil, to restore the relationship we break with God. As He has done
that for us...He has given us the ministry to do that to others. Take the step, show the love of Christ! Remove the enmity between yourselves and others. Ask to be forgiven and ask our Lord to restore the friendship or broken relationship. He will help. Read 2 Corinthians at least once a day for a week. October in many churches is a time of REFORMATION.
In reformation there is always RECONCILIATION. RECONCILIATION is a gift of God we may not even think of
thanking Him for. Yes, and it can be said of all this too, as Peter Truman of the Global News used to say,
"That's not news, but it too is reality!"
"There is SALVATION in NO ONE ELSE! There is NO OTHER NAME in all of heaven for people to call on TO SAVE THEM!" [Portions of Acts 4:11&12] Jesus is the One to call upon!
He said about Himself, "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, no one gets to the Father except by Me!" John 14:6
"Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved!" Acts 16:31
