word to Welcome to our Church Website
From Pastor..."But now, this is what the Lord says, 'He who created you...formed you...Fear not for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are mine'..." [Isaiah 43:1]
There's another 'but now' verse I read recently. "But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near through the blood of Christ!" [Ephesians 2:13]
But now, I take that to mean, 'hey, here and now this is the way it is.' I attended a funeral yesterday and the Pastor spoke on the Words of Jesus recorded in John 14,
just 6 words, "Let not your hearts be troubled!" [John 14:1] The Pastor must have spoken those words 6 or 7 times, maybe more. The words stuck in my mind. The person was dead. I didn't know her. I was a relative of her daughter. But Now, yes she's buried, But Now, we don't let our hearts be troubled...because...our Lord who created her, also redeeemed her and called her to her eternal home, we could say, by name, because she is His, one of His dear children. For a time she was once far from our Lord, but through His sacrifice on the cross for her and for all people, through His blood that was shed, she is now, and was, and will be near to Him forever. She knew and believed what our Lord told us in Holy Scripture. "Believe in the lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved!"
She knew and believed as God's Words tell us, "Salvation is found in NO ONE ELSE, there is NO OTHER NAME under heaven given to us by which we can be saved!"
Read those verses again. Notice the action is ALL from God to us. Put your name in the verses as you read them. He knows our names and speaks those words to us personally.
BUT NOW because of what we are told, even in the rawest moments and deepest pains of grief, our hearts can be at peace.
But Now, let not your hearts be troubled! Here and now, that is the way it really is!!!
And as Peter Truman of the Global news used to say, "That's not news, but it too is
"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
