From the Pastor's Desk - May 2014

From the Pastor’s Desk – May 2014 – During our recent Men’s Bible Study we discussed the Parable of the Soils. Most Bible scholars say that the four soils represent four different ways people respond to the Gospel. One Bible commentaries suggested, “But Jesus may also have been talking about (1) different times or phases in a person's life, or (2) how we willingly receive God's message in some areas of our lives and resist it in others...You may respond like good soil to God's demand for worship, but like rocky soil to his demand to give to people in need. We must strive to be like good soil in every area of our lives at all times.” If what this commentator suggests is true that means that there may be areas in our lives that are resistant to the leadership of the Lord. If we want to be used of the Lord and if we want to glorify the Lord in every area of our lives then we must ask the Lord to convict us of those things that are resistant to Him, and then we must confess and repent so that we can be restored. Sin is a cancer that eats away at our relationship with Christ and if we let it, it will take over our whole lives... beginning with the small things. Let’s let nothing keep us from fellowship with the Lord and faithfulness in every area of our lives.

We are only a few weeks from our summer activities, so I want to ask you to be praying for VBS, our Children’s and Youth Camps and our Mission trip to St. Louis. Though these are activities we do routinely we don’t want to take them for granted. They are spiritual work and require that we prepare ourselves spiritually to do the work of the Lord. We have the opportunity to influence the lives of so many families through these ministries. Would you set aside time today and every day to pray for our VBS workers, our camp sponsors and cooks, and all who will be participating in VBS, Church Camp and our mission trip? May the Lord bless you for your faithfulness. Bro. Keith

We need volunteers for VBS. See Shelly if you can help. And we still need scholarships for Children’s and Youth Camps.
