A Word From the Pastor

And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, this cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till he come. I Corinthians 11:24-26.

     Immediately following the 11:00 a.m. Worship Service we will gather together in person, conference call and zoom to partake of the Lord’s Supper for the twelfth time this year commemorating Christ death, burial and resurrection from the dead.

     Let us prepare to fellowship with the Lord Jesus Christ and praise God for our soul salvation and future home with Him.

     But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. I Timothy 6:6-8.

     The apostle Paul writes that godliness with contentment is a great gain. Being in a righteous relationship with God and having our need met is a blessing from God. Therefore as believers, our response should be filled with thanksgiving and praise unto the Lord. 

     Church, the Lord by His grace has brought us to the end of another year. As we look forward to the holiday of celebrating Christmas, don’t get caught up in the debt trap. Over spending and later suffer unnecessarily. After the holiday is over, we still need to live. God desires for His children to learn to be content with those things that He’s blessed us with. Being grateful to all that God has done for us, is what God desires of His children. Are you thankful for all God has done, or are you thankless?
