Message for June 13, 2020 from Pastor Jerry

  Redemption is a rare and beautiful thing that God provided the world through Christ.  Not one person was excluded from the blessing.  The only ones that will not take part in the redemption plan of God are those who refuse to accept the plan provided.
     We, the Church, hold the key to solve all of man’s problems in the “day” of turmoil we are going through these past few months.  We also have a permanent solution for all the hatred and violence we see each day.  His name is Jesus the Christ, and He has the answer to all of the problems of the world.“And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.  Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice.  And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.” Eph. 4:30-32 (NKJV)
       Man’s entire scale of problems has an answer but not in human capability.  The answer to all problems of man are found in the Word of God.  It will not be found by seeking it to help our own wants and needs but to consider how God meamnt it to be.  We have been so good making the Word of God fit our way.  We need to find the truth of His Way.  The above verses tell the story.  We can’t even do the “easy” things He asks.
     Those outside the Church don’t care what God has done.  And many in the Church don’t understand what God has done because we try to fit God into our way of thinking.  Jesus told us to love God with all our heart and love our neighbor as our self.  The Word(Bible) says, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”  We are not called to fight the world but to help save it.  Let’s stand up and do it!!
