Welcome to our Church Website
From Pastor..."If you forgive people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.
But if you do not forgive people who offend you, your heavenly Father will not forgive your sins.
"For I am afraid that when I come to visit you, I will not like what I find, and then you will not like my response.
I am afraid that I will find quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfishness, backstabbing, gossip, conceit, and
disorderly behavior." [2 Corinthians 12:20] The Apostle Paul went on to say that he will grieve because many of the people who sinned have not repented.
The Lenten Season, at least for Christians, is a time for us to look at our lives, to look at our relationship with our Lord, to see and admit that we have flaws, that we have sins and that we do need to repent and turn back to our Lord. It is always easier to look at others and accuse them instead of seeing our own evil.
In the last ten days I enountered a woman and her husband who have repeatedly acted out their anger, extreme
anger and it was directed at me. I'm writing this because it is one of the reasons we need a Lenten season
and actually need the season all year long.
The most devout appearing individuals we know, can show their real pharisaical side, the real them, and that creates
a true dilema for us who see their pius appearance and receive their outbursts.
The Lenten season is a time of year for us to realize that our Lord saw the same thing and received the same
outbursts and finally was crucifed in the process.
And, this is tough part for us, because we don't want to admit that we're all guilty of such outbursts. We're all guilty
of such hypocrisy. God inspired the Apostle Paul to help us all see our flaws, sins, evil tendencies, and that we all
have a need to repent. In truth we've all sinned and fallen short of our Lord's perfection. When we've finally
reached the level of admitting our evil, sincerely confessed it, and accepted the fact that as we have confessed our Lord has forgiven us completely, then we are ready to accept the new walk in life. Then we can treat others like our
Lord forgives and treats us in His unconditional love.
In Ephesians 4 verses 31 and 32, our Lord has given these commands to guide our lives. "Get rid of all bitterness,
rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of malicious behavior. Instead, be kind to each other,
tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you."
It's March, a time for March Madness, a time for, Lord willing, snow to melt, an adjustment for the time change, plans for summer projects and outdoor activities, and a time between now and Easter for some spiritual growth.
A good place to start that growth is by looking at ourselves honestly, noting our flaws, and turning to our
Lord asking for help to make the changes we need in our relationship with Him.
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
