Fourth Sunday After Pentecost… 6/12/2016

Got FAITH??? (Please click)

Keep, O Lord, your household the Church in your steadfast faith and love, that through your grace we may proclaim your truth with boldness, and minister your justice with compassion; for the sake of our Savior Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Faith… got Faith??? It is truly awesome to realize that we do not have to do anything to receive eternal life but to believe in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  This faith that we have that Jesus Christ took the sins of the world to death with His humanly body is beautiful.  All the good works we do, can not compare what was done for us… perhaps that is the reason man created religion… (man’s attempt to praise and honor God)… Religion is beautiful; however, (like with anything created by man) it will fall short to the PRAISE and HONOR God deserves.


I am drawn to a letter written by my brother in Christ, the Apostle Paul.  I want to share with you the words he wrote to the Galatians.

Paul writes in Galatians Chapter 2…

16 knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified.

17 “But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is Christ therefore a minister of sin? Certainly not! 18 For if I build again those things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor. 19 For I through the law died to the law that I might live to God. 20 I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.

I truly believe that you should follow Paul’s beautiful example of Faith… If only we all had this strength.  I believe the world wouldn’t be in the mess that it is in NOW…

Knowing of this powerful love should make us want to return that love to other brothers and sisters in Christ.  When non-believers see this love, it is my HOPE that they get curious about Jesus Christ…
