From the Pastor – July 5, 2018

Hello and I hope you all had a wonderful 4th!  We praise God for this great nation He has blessed us with.  We praise God for the many rights and freedoms we as Americans have but the greatest blessing we can have is the freedom God desires to give all humanity.   What is the freedom you ask…it is freedom from the penalty of sin.  First of all the Bible plainly tells us that we are all sinners; Romans 3:23 says, “for ALL have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”  No matter who you are, where you come from or how good you are; we are all sinners before the Holy God.  Throughout time, humanity has tried to get to God.  We are all born with this desire, this yearning is deep within us to find God but because of our sinful nature we cannot and will not have a right relationship with God.  Sin in our lives becomes a burden.  Sin becomes something like an anchor chained to us; we desire to be free but we cannot escape this heavy weight.  As I said before God desires to give all humankind this freedom; but how?  Only through Jesus!  In John 3:16 we read, “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”  Our true freedom is found only in Jesus.  John 8:36 says, “So, if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.”  Do you want this freedom?  If so you must act, you must acknowledge you are a sinner, you must confess your sins to God and you then must trust Jesus as your Lord and Savior.  I hope you will, for there is no other way.

If you do not have a church home or perhaps you are new to the area we welcome you to worship with us.   See you Sunday!

Pastor Tommy
