From Your Pastor's Heart - January 4, 2015

Good Morning Family!

You know that this morning’s letter has to be about new beginnings.  It is where every church bulletin in America will be focused.  It’s a new year.  I simply cannot believe we are saying the date: 2015.  It does not seem possible.

Whenever someone mentions dates like 1968 or 1970, I relate it in my brain to being only about 20 years ago, but 1970 was 45 years ago.  Time is fleeting.  We all know that.  James 4:14 tells us what our lives are like:


            “What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.”


We all know better than most about the morning fog or mist down here in these mountains.  You can pretty much count on it.  But, after a while it lifts away and the sun comes out.  The Christian should find this to be a comfort.  In context, James was talking about trusting the Lord with every day of our lives and living in such a way as to remaining sensitive to His daily will for each one of us.  Yes, it is a new year, but none of us can count on being here  on this earth tomorrow.

This is not meant to be a downer or to live with a “death wish”.  This is living as one who is totally reliant on the Lord for every breath and being in a state of contentment to live our fleeting moments for Him.  It is true that only the things done for Christ will last.  So, that’s what I am asking of all of us this year, this new year.  I would ask all of us who dearly love the Lord, through the Holy Spirit that dwells within you, to seek His face more than ever before.

That, after all, is what we are to be about anyway everyday, no matter the year, no matter the holiday, no matter the season of life.  Let’s walk closely with our Lord in this Happy New Year. 

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
