Pastor’s 

Corner

HAVE YOU FELT LIKE GIVING UP LATELY? DON’T!


       Nearly a century ago, Christians were concerned about the “Social Gospel”. Instead of being a lighthouse for lost souls, the Church during those years, became a soup kitchen.


      Now, in the first part of the 21st century, Christians need to become aware of, and concerned about the “Culture Gospel”. Instead of being an oasis for the spiritually desperate, the Church in America is becoming a play house of cultural relevancy.


     Traditional forms of worship are disappearing as if they were dinosaurs. An atmosphere of reverence in the church is all but extinct. An expectation that people attend church services dressed respectfully for the occasion, is frowned upon by many Churches as archaic and old fashioned – as if there is something wrong with being old fashioned.


       Positive thinking won’t make these problems go away and “confessing” that these problems don’t really exist doesn’t change a thing.. So, What is the cure?


     There is a very simple answer:  Keeping our focus on Jesus Christ.  The Church has forgotten to "keep the main thing the main thing".  The Church that used to be focused on God and Jesus Christ, is now, in far too many cases, focused on itself.  

     We must remember that:  "the proper place for a ship to be is in the water, but if the water gets into the ship, the ship will sink.  The proper place for the Church is in the world, but if the 'world' gets into the church, the church will go down in disgrace."

IS THERE A BIBLICAL PRESCRIPTION TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN? YES! ONE AND ONLY ONE. IT'S FOUND IN 2nd CHRONICLES 7:14; "IF MY PEOPLE WHO ARE CALLED BY MY NAME WILL HUMBLE THEMSELVES, AND PRAY AND SEEK MY FACE, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, THEN I WILL HEAR FROM HEAVEN, AND WILL FORGIVE THEIR SINS AND HEAL THEIR LAND." 


*********************************************

COMMENT FROM AN INTERNET CONTRIBUTOR: "HEY PASTOR BILL, YOU SOUND LIKE YOU HAVE AN AGENDA WHEN YOU PREACH!"  

YOU BET I DO!  (BUT ONLY ONE!) To teach the Truth! To teach that all roads do not lead to Heaven. Only the narrow road, that leads to repentance! Through Obedience to following Jesus Christ as Lord. All other roads lead to hell and destruction (John 8:32).

WHY REACH OUT AND MINISTER TO MEN?

  • When a child is reached for Christ, 3.5% of the family will follow.
  • When a mother is reached for Christ, 17% of her family will follow.
  • When a father is reached for Christ, 93% of his family will follow.  (Per the Heritage Foundation)
  • THE LORD S CALLING FAITHFUL MEN TO LEAD THEIR FAMILIES!

*******************************************************

THE LOVE OF THE LORD NEVER FAILS

THE BIBLE:  GOD'S HOLY WORD


As a pastor, a minister of God, I am required to believe, to teach, to preach what the Bible says is true, not what you want the Bible to say is true.

PRAY THAT: All who are attending the Community Christian Church, as well as all who have ever attended- The Lord Jesus knows who you are, and He knows your needs. We pray that He will meet your every need. If your need is Salvation, and you have not yet accepted the Lord's invitation to join His family of believers by being born again, I pray that today will be the day you make that decision..

PRAY THAT: All who know Jesus as Lord and Savior would start to live as if they do, and  will be willing to pay the one debt we owe for our Salvation; that is the debt of LOVE (Romans 13:8)!

    SALVATIONNot only to Eternity in Heaven, but From Eternity in Hell! You MUST, first of all; Admit You Are a Sinner in Need of a Savior:

    James 2:10 “For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles on one (point), he has become guilty of all.”

    Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”

    Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

    Accept God’s Love through the/Sacrifice in His Son Jesus
    •Romans 5:8 “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

    Turn to God in Repentance
    •Acts 20:21 “I have declared to both Jews and Greeks that they must turn to God in repentance and have faith in our Lord Jesus.”

    Trust the Fullness Jesus Christ!
    •Romans 10:9 “…if you confess with your mouth Jesus as  Lord,  and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved;

    Romans 10:13 “For whoever calls on the Name of the Lord shall be saved.”

    Romans 10:14 “How then shall they call on Him Who they have not believed?  And how shall they believe in Him of Whom they have not heard?  And how shall they hear without a preacher?

    Romans 10:17 “So then Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.

    Jeremiah 29:13 “You will seek Me (God) and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart.”

    It may not be easy to give up your old sinful ways, and turn in faith to Jesus Christ; but it is the only way to  SALVATION,  AND IT IS WORTH IT! 

     CALL UPON (THE FULLNESS OF) THE NAME OF JESUS AND YOU WILL BE SAVED!

    2. He pastor,
      Great stuff in the "Pastor's Corner" today. Also, nice pictures from yesterday.

      Wanted to let you know I won't be at church tonight. I need some rest and time alone with the Lord this evening.

      I'll finish up my paper and begin the next book and then work with Kathy at her convenience to add a cover page and review the conclusion.

      Praying for tonight...

    10. Thank you for the good word PB

      I pray to understand more as I live longer - it seems the longer I live the less I know of all the Lord holds for us through his Grace and by His love.

      Hope that warm air is helping your breathing.

      We have kept your family lifted before the Lord and we received your prayer request for Carla.. that will be quite a surgery.

      Thank You PB for answering questions you may have heard and answered a hundred times.
