It would appear that spring may
finally have sprung. In the meantime, as children of the Master, we should
enjoy whatever the seasons and the weather brings. Speaking of spring, April
should bring in the blossoms and greenery and yes, grass cutting, a delight to
the lawn mowing fans. It should also start a season of renewal in our lives. A
season where we can reflect on the past days of bitter cold, early darkness and
just trying to get warm. A season we can reflect on the winter weather also.
Spiritual renewal is far better and lasting than seasonal renewal and the time
to consider it is now!
Easter Sunday is coming up and is a
special day to remember that our Lord provided the only way for us to be in
eternity with Him. It is a day to remember what He did so willingly. I cannot even imagine what it must have been like to
have gone through what Jesus did. Nevertheless, He did and we can be the
beneficiaries of that time. If you have never truly given your life to Jesus,
the time is now. Those believers that have gone on before us will be in heaven
and they and the angels will delight in our coming.
This Easter Sunday will be a time of
worshipful celebration of the loving care a Holy God has shown us in His
provisions. It will be a time to start our commitment for the plans God has for
us during the next year. A time we can look excitedly about the many opportunities
as church we can accomplish those things so needed to keep God’s house and
ministry in order. Be a Christian that looks for opportunities to serve.
The month of April is being
dedicated to prayer for the revival (May 3 through May 6). Cottage prayers will be planned for April 26
– May 1. Watch the bulletin
for more information.
May God continue to bless each of you as you bless me and
