From Your Pastor’s Heart - April 26, 2015

Good Morning Family,  

This morning’s letter has not much to do with the passage we are teaching on this morning.  It has much to do with what I am reflecting on personally.  In the last 15 years, the world we live in has drastically changed.  The question I have is to all of us is this: What will we do?  How will we be remembered? 

In this past year with the increasing persecution and killings of Christians worldwide, a wake up call has been issued to the body of Christ and to America as a whole.  I don’t know about you, but this has me greatly concerned and also has me hopeful that millions of Christians will wake from their slumber to see what is happening around them.  God is calling us to make a difference in our world individually and corporately as the Body of Christ, but we cannot do that if we live with our head in the sand.

Great sacrifice may be required of all of us as we step out into these uncertain days.    I remember the week right after September 11th.  In the church in which I was ministering at the time, we were running about 500 in worship.  Sunday the 16th of September, there were 718 in attendance in the morning worship service.  We all know what happened nationwide in the coming months.  Church attendance and concern for spiritual things waned and we were back to “business as usual”.

All through history we have seen the church flourish under persecution and it may take that again in these last days in which I believe we live.  I leave you with II Corinthians 4:7-10:

          But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed— 10 always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.

Focus on Christ and continually ask Him for direction in these days ahead.  He will never let you down.  He will never let his church down!  He is our Strong Tower!

As always, my prayer is that we would all Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth.”    II Timothy 2:15.          

Humbly Yours,

Bro Steve

Dr. Steven Gann, Your Shepherd
