From Your Pastor's Heart - January 22, 2017

Good Morning Family!

          I am writing this on Thursday morning before sunrise.  Woke up thinking about the coming months of ministry and what the Lord has in store for us to accomplish.

            Today is our Quarterly Business Meeting and Potluck Luncheon.  We put it off two weeks from the 8th until today.  I am looking forward to touching base with our committees and Ministry Teams on the status of some things on which we are working.  We are enough past the holidays now that perhaps we are catching our breath from a very busy time.  I always need the first few weeks of January to get my bearings again after such a flurry of ministry activity, and for some, family travel as well.

            So, please stick around today for our luncheon and meeting.  I always leave heartened by your commitment to ministry and wonderful spirits of cooperation and encouragement.  You have to know that not every church has such a good spirit prevalent.  The Lord has been very good to us this past year enabling us to meet all of our obligations and fulfill our ministry endeavors.  He has also started us of good this year as well.  I believe He enables us as we remain faithful to His Word and His mission.

            Today, we are diving into the first chapter of Paul’s Letter to the Church at Ephesus.  This is our third message in our new series, ‘In the Heavenly Places”.  In this series, I hope to remind us all that we are not helpless against Satan and this world system.  Darkness does not have to prevail and scripturally will not ultimately prevail against God’s people.  “Greater is He that is in us, than he that is in the world!”  And the reality is that there is truly no comparison between the almighty power of God that resides in every believer and the forces that are active in the world. 

            The key is keeping our eyes on Him.  He is our Chart and Compass that we need to navigate the darkness.  Walk in Him.  Battle in Him.  Rest in Him.  Prevail in Him.  It is when I forget this that I find myself in trouble.  Our journey in Ephesians will benefit all of us as we avail ourselves to Paul’s teaching.

            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
