SERMON FOR THE WEEK OF MAY 15, 2022

 

Today we focus on another name of God.  This one is “Everlasting God.”  Although it is hard to fathom that God had no beginning, it is a joy to know that God is eternal and his character and attributes are also eternal and never change.  The sermon is entitled, “Our Everlasting God.”  https://youtu.be/xcTZFR7IR0I

FROM PASTOR GARY

I saw this picture on Facebook and thought it was well worth repeating. I believe it can speak to all of us.  We can all get upset and angry about many things. We then respond to those situations in many ways.  We may lash out in our anger verbally, yelling and screaming. We may decide to remain silent for days on end, separating ourselves physically and/or emotionally from the alleged offender.  Some will resort to gossip. Some will turn to revenge.

 

But in every situation, I think this is a great question to ask in order to help us evaluate and determine if that situation is really worth getting all riled up about. Another way of asking it is, does it really matter when compared to eternity. 

 

There are truly some things that are worth getting angry over.  There are situations that are simply wrong, sinful and some even evil.  But even in these we are told in the Bible that be careful. “In your anger do not sin.  Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry.” Ephesians 4.26

 

But if we are honest and we better be, because God knows our thoughts, most of the things for which we choose to get upset and angry are not worth it. Notice I said things that we choose to get upset and angry about. Situations don’t make us angry.  People don’t make us angry. We choose to be angry.  Therefore, when a situation arises let us ask the question. I believe more times than not we will determine that it is not worth wasting our time getting angry.  It is not worth the time wasted being angry at someone, when we could be enjoying our time with them. Just sayin’.

How To Become a Follower of Jesus

 

"If you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved."  Romans 10.9

 

Becoming a follower of Jesus Christ requires repenting of your sins, and believing that Jesus died on the cross and rose again to forgive you of those sins and entering into a relationship with Him.

 

If you are ready to become a follower of Jesus Christ pray this prayer: 

Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and I ask for Your forgiveness.  I believe You died for my sins and rose again from the dead.  I turn my life over to You.  I want to trust  and follow You as my Lord and Savior.  Amen.
