Greetings from Pastor James
In the midst of disease, hate and violence and economic stress we must take our eyes off of the lies of politics and media and Let the Holy Spirit guide us and teach us. We must spread the good news of Christ.
Read Matthew 28:16-20.
There was a time when our nation was a God fearing nation. But evil has crept into every fiber of our society.
God’s Word will bring about change in peoples’ lives. On hearing God’s Word and believing we cannot remain the same. We are called just as the disciples, to make disciples. We are called to spread the Word of God. It is not about us. It is about serving. Jesus did not invest in material things. Jesus invested in people. Comforting, teaching, helping, healing and bringing out the best in people, teaching about mercy and forgiveness is the way of Christ. Our mission is that of loving and helping. It is not about material things or popularity.
The majority of reports from the news and media outlets seem to reveal that things are completely out of control and show no hope for the near future.
Do not be discouraged. God is still at work. God’s people are still answering His great commission in different ways. And we see glimmers of hope.
We are not all evangelist, but we have all received gifts that we can use to help fulfill the Great Commission God has called us to. And as we serve God we have comfort knowing that Christ is always with us.
We must work together as a church. We must encourage one another and equip one another. We must take responsibility for our family, our coworkers, our neighbors and the nations.
First Corinthians 3:9 tells us that “we are labourers together with God.”
Remember, God sends us the ultimate gift of love through the Holy Spirit. The love that comes from God brings life to a dying world. The love of God brings victory to defeated lives. The love of God is not about intimidation. It’s about restoration. Be a bearer of Good News for Christ. Be a part of restoring a life, a community.
Be thankful He saved you. Don’t hesitate to ask Him and He will use you.
Blessings to all,
Pastor James Boyette
