November 3rd will be a pivotal
date in the life of our nation and have a far-reaching impact on the entire
world. In this year’s elections, God will place who He wills into each
position to deliver either His judgement or mercy upon us. You can be
sure of this; many feel like the world will come to an end if their favorite
candidate does not win. No matter where you stand on the political
spectrum, may I remind you that God is still in control of this entire
If you will indulge me for a
moment by reading one of the verses from our Revelation Sermon Series that
began last Sunday. (Revelation 1:8)“I am the Alpha and the
Omega—the beginning and the end, says the Lord God. “I am the one who is, who
always was, and who is still to come—the Almighty One.” God reminds
us that He is in control, contrary of what any man or woman may think. As
fast as culture changes in today’s world, God remains unchanging. He is
the beginning, end and everything in between.
As the election approaches, study
the candidates on where they stand on issues. Search God’s Word for
clarity. Allow God to sway you to vote in the direction that falls in
line with His word which is unchanging. Finally, regardless of who wins
there will be people who are absolutely devastated. In those dark times,
the light of Christ can shine the brightest. Be ready to give others a
reason for the hope you have, regardless of how they voted.
(1 Peter 3:15) If
someone asks about your hope as a believer, always be ready to explain it.
Explain that Jesus loves them. His
love is proven and unchanging throughout history. No matter who God
places in authority over us, He is still in control. You can have hope
today in Christ. Place your faith in Him and watch Him work through
you. Though this world may change, God never will. Rejoice in that
fact. Have hope and share it with others today.
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
