A letter from the Pastor
Welcome to March. This is the month that, hopefully, we begin our transition from winter. The time of year where the blooms come back to the plants and everything is fresh. It’s the time when we plant seeds and do all we can to see them grow. Taking care of plants are much like taking care of our spiritual life. We must take the same care our ourselves as we do of our plants. First what have you planted? We must plant the right things in order to have a harvest. A farmer does not just plant and forget. He makes sure that he takes care of all the things that will help the plants grow without interference. So what are you doing to make sure your spiritual plants are growing without interference? Let me give you a verse of scripture:
2 Peter 1:5-8 (ESV)
"For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ."
We must make every effort to add to our faith. To add, if you will, spiritual fertilizer to our faith. Let us do all the things we can to grow our faith. Weed out the things that will harm our faith, and fertilize faith with the things that will cause it to become great. As we watch the blooms of Spring, let’s allow the ‘blooms of the Spirit’ to grow in our lives.
One last set of questions this month: What are you planting? Will you allow Faith to grow? Let’s plant seeds of faith and allow them to grow. Let God increase our faith. Allow Him to do what he wants to do in your life. Do the things you can to cause spiritual things to grow in your life.
There are a number of things happening this month. We begin our time of fasting and sacrifice. The season of Lent begins Wednesday. I would ask that you would join me in this time of consecration and pray that God would honor what we are doing. We are preparing for Easter and a month of revival services. Rev. AJ and Amanda Holloway will be with us during April. I believe we can prepare ourselves for what God has for us. Also we have a 5th Sunday this month. We will have Pastries with Pastor instead of Sunday School. We will have alternates to sweets for those who are continuing their fast.
I am looking forward to this time of consecration.
