Pastor's Post - April




As we approach our Easter Services, we are walking through a worship series that lays out the power of the gospel message. Andy Stanley wrote a book called “Principle of Path”. The main premise of this book is that wherever the road you are on leads, that is where it will take you.  Just as you cannot expect to end up in California by taking I-26 east, you cannot expect God’s blessings while walking a road that does not lead to Him. 

In Luke 24 we find two disciples walking down the road to Emmaus which was seven miles from Jerusalem where Jesus had been crucified and buried. News of Jesus’ resurrection had traveled among those who believed in Him. As they were walking down the road, they were talking about all the events they had seen and heard relating to Jesus. Suddenly, a man they did not recognize started walking behind them. After spending some time with them, Jesus revealed Himself as the Risen Savior.  Notice what the scripture says:

(Luke 24:31-32 NLT) 31 Suddenly, their eyes were opened, and they recognized him. And at that moment he disappeared! 32 They said to each other, “Didn’t our hearts burn within us as he talked with us on the road and explained the Scriptures to us?”

I pray that you find the encouragement and will to seek Jesus on whatever road you are walking today. Ask Him to reveal Himself to you to show you the direction you are going and the strength to make corrections where needed. I am praying for you and your journey!

In Him,

Pastor James

Confession, Reflection and The Lord's Supper

Yesterday, our church observed the ordinance of the Lord''s Supper or Communion as some call it.  Our church is blessed to have a committee that prepares this for us on every fifth Sunday.  This practice is designed to take us back in our hearts and minds to that dreadful night where Jesus sat at a table with His disciples to prepare them for His pending crucifixion .   The purpose of the Lord's Supper is not for us to go through the motions, but to remember all that Christ did for us.  His body was broken and blood was shed for the forgiveness of our sins.  Communion is a time to reflect, appreciate and give honor to Jesus for what He endured for us. This ordinance is not for everyone.  This is only to be taken by those who are believers and accepted Jesus as their ultimate forgiver and leader.  To partake in this service in an unworthy state is sin. 1 Corinthians 11:27 (NLT) 27 So anyone who eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord unworthily is guilty of s
