Pastor’s Corner

November 2023

Grace and peace to you,

Sadly, for many people in our world today, life is nothing but a monotonous routine. Day in and day out they go through the motions and constantly wonder if life has any meaning. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that routine is bad, in fact the disciplined, methodical approach to life is something I personally
strive to maintain. I know others who are (or have been) ambitious, striving to reach the top in their career, profession. Unfortunately, often, seeming to sacrifice family, and personal integrity in order to obtain the riches, prestige and notoriety they crave.

However, there comes a time when each of us starts seeking the real meaning of life! As that “empty” feeling over takes us, and we ask; is this all that life has to offer?

Now He Who has fashioned us [preparing and making us fit] for this very thing is God, Who also has given us the [Holy] Spirit as a guarantee [of the fulfillment of His promise]. ~ 2 Corinthians 5:5 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition

The only satisfying answer is a spiritual one. Thankfully, God has graciously has provided not only the answer, but also the means. People who have a sincere and vibrant relationship with the living Christ have found the answer to this question. They live a purposeful life through the power of Christ. The glorious truth is that people were created to glorify, worship and serve God! When God is at the center of our life, God continuously, pours out divine blessing and life begins to reveal its deep secrets. When your purpose in life is to serve God and your fellow man, you begin to discover the deeper meaning of life.

When the way ahead seems to be blocked … recall the words of the Apostle;
I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency. ~Philippians 4:13 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition
