A Note From the Pastor

May, a Month of Recognition:

This past week has been a mixture of joy and sadness for me.  I rejoice in the accomplishments of several of our youth who are graduating from high school and college.  Yet it is always a bitter-sweet experience because I know they are moving on and starting another chapter in their life.  Often, that new chapter will take them to another place, another city, another state, and outside the watch-care of our church and me as their pastor.  As we watch those that we love move on to that next chapter in life, we can't help but think of how life is such a mixture of blessings and burdens.  We understand that into every life there must come the sunshine and the rain in order for our Christian growth and development to take place.  Without a mixture of both, the mountaintops of joy and the valleys of sadness, our Christian life would stagnant and our growth in Christ would never develop.  So, as we see our seniors walk across the stage and receive their diplomas we rejoice in their accomplishments and pray that God will give them  -- and us -- grace for the changes in the days ahead.

Study in Romans on Wednesday Night:
It is always a joy and blessing to study God's Word.  We have been studying the 2nd chapter of Romans during our mid-week service.  The book of Romans is a very important part of God's Word because it includes the great doctrines of the faith.  Let's set aside time from our many activities to come and be in the Lord's house on Wednesday night.  Remember the admonition of the apostle Paul to "not forsake the assembling of ourselves together" ... and, "to come together more as we see the day approaching."  That means, as we see the soon coming of the days of Christ, we should meet more often.  Also, remember the words of King David when he said, "I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord." -- Psalm 122:1.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Brother Harold

Scriptures from Today

"What Do We Lack?"

Mark 10:17-22 King James Version (KJV)

Mark 10:17-22 King James Version (KJV)

17 And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?

18 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.

19 Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.

20 And he answered and said unto him, Master, all these have I observed from my youth.

21 Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.

22 And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.

 

 

The rich young ruler had youth, riches, authority, and morals. However, he lacked Jesus so; therefore, he had nothing.
