From the Pastor’s Desk – March 11, 2012

Too many people today live out their Christian faith from event to event:  Easter Sunday, Christmas Eve candlelight service, a revival, a praise concert, or a special church dinner.  But in between they fail to manifest a lifestyle of a Christian.  They live for God for the earthly benefits, not for fellowship with Jesus Christ.  They reject Christ’s instruction:  “If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me” (Luke 9:23).

Special church events are not wrong; they are an important part of life.  But they are just the introduction to something much bigger and better!  Events should direct us to a lifestyle of daily prayer, Bible reading, compassion for the lost, and concern for the unfortunate.  They are stepping stones to building a life of faith and relationship with Jesus Christ.
