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

Pastor's Post for September

There are many today that believe in the concept of “karma”. Often it is used to mean, what you give to this world will ultimately come back to you. If you are a mean person,  someone will be mean to you. If you are nice to someone, someone will be nice to you. This principle originated the religions of Hinduism and Buddhism. Karma referred to someone doing better than they did before once they died and came back in a reincarnated state. As believers in Jesus Christ and His Word, we know that reincarnation is not supported. It is appointed for a man or woman to be born then die. However, Jesus said in John 3, if a person wants eternal life they must be born again. Meaning, one admits they are a sinner, accept Jesus’ death for the forgiveness of their sins and lives life as a “new creature”. While you physically will not become a new person, your soul and your spirit will be renewed. It will be a start over or a reboot so to speak. Though believers do not believe in karma,
