From the Pastor

June 28, 2020

Man’s greatest need is to listen, hear, and follow the Word of God. When He speaks we had better listen. He is not a man that He can lie. He never minces words nor speaks idly. He is the great “I AM” and shall forever be! His words are health and life to the spirit of man.

His Word says, He remembers who we are, where we have been, where we are going, and what we have done. He promises to relieve us of the burdens that this life brings. There is no burden so heavy that He cannot lift. We are to cast our cares on Him for He cares for us. He is more than able!

From His word we understand that He has taken us for His people. We have been adopted into the family of God. We have been purchased with the blood of the Lord Jesus. We have become the children of God, and shall forever be.

In ages past, God at times dwelt in temples made with hands. However, He now has a new dwelling place. He lives in the heart of His children. He is in us and we are in Him. In Him there is no want, no shortage, nor emptiness. He establishes us and settles us in His pasture of plenty. He promises that He will give every good and perfect gift from His storehouse of plenty. There are no shortages with Him. He just gives and keeps on giving.

Tune out the word of this world, and tune in to the Word of the Lord. He says what He means, and means what He says. Listen carefully and you will know the real purpose and meaning of life.

Thought for today: God intervenes in the lives of men by invitation only.
