Message for October 15, 2018 from Pastor Jerry

“But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who spitefully use you.” Luke 7:27-28. “But love your enemies, do good…” Luke 7:35(NKJV)
“Therefore I exhort, first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth.” I Timothy 2:1-4(NKJV)

One of the most evident things I see in the society around us is the abundance of hate that seems to be fill the atmosphere. Many of the thing people are doing in the name of their “cause” are not in harmony with the Word of God. This may not be of any concern to the people of the “world”, but it is essential to true Christians.
If you listen to any news source, you see the spewing of hate group after group has for others with whom they disagree. I am not trying to be political about this but speaking from my position as a child of God in a place of leader. Prophets and men of God always spoke from God’s  point. Things have not changed. Our first priority is to serve and obey God. This is first– above being Democrat, Republican, conservative, moderate, man, woman, rich, poor,
majority, minority, or any other such thing. 

The above scriptures admonish us as believers to love our enemies. Based on the Bible, we have no right to hate anyone. That means President Trump, Nancy Pelosi , Sen. Flake, Gov. Bevins, or any other person in authority. Keep this in mind in the coming days and years. Be careful which “voices” you follow ; they are leading you somewhere. The apostle Peter said thus, “ Which is right for us, to listen to man or to God.” This is the issue of the heart about which
I am speaking.
