Message for August 9, 2020 from Pastor Jerry

“For you were like sheep going astray, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.” 1 Peter 2:25
     As we look around and listen to all that is going on in our nation and world, we see a lot of chaos that can trouble the soul if we let it.  We must not lose sight of whose we are and who is the caretaker of our souls.The  above verse  tells us how we need to see ourselves in this world and in the Kingdom of God. 
     If we are children of God, we are citizens of His Kingdom with all its rights and privileges as written in His word.  God’s word is the Constitution under which we live.  Earthly connections are secondary for us as we are strangers and pilgrims on the earth.  If we function as citizens of the Heavenly Kingdom, we will have peace in the earth.  That doesn’t mean we pay no attention to what is happening around but we must remember our Savior and Overseer is watching over us and goes to “war” on our behalf.  
     You can find this explained in Hebrews 11:13-16.  The God who said, “I will never leave you or forsake you”, is the God whom we serve.  He is with us in every situation to perform His word for us.  We do not have to fear what man can do to us for we have a God who watches after us like he did the Hebrew Children in the fiery furnace.
     Therefore, face every day with its events knowing that God is for us not against us.  His eye is on the sparrow and He watches after you.  Never forget, YOU ARE BLESSED!
