Pastor's Corner

February 22, 2021

Join us this Sunday, February 28th @ 1030 for the Lord's Supper

 

But Now Abide These Three …..

The times we are living in with the COVID pandemic, the oil industry in turmoil, and the political unrest in our country cause us at times to experience many different emotions including fear, confusion, doubt and a lot of other unsettling concerns.  It is easy with all the turmoil around us to feel defeated. 

Rather than get discouraged by these things, we should look to the scripture for guidance and encouragement.  What does the Bible offer us as an alternative way to think and live during troubled times?

Rather than living defeated, the Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 13 explains our focus in life should be upon three main things:  He said in 13:13, “But now abide these three, faith, hope, and love; but the greatest of these is love.

Paul’s words are like an anchor for our soul, pointing us to the attitudes we should focus on as a guide for our lives.  It takes discipline and courage to ignore the challenging things around us, but focusing on walking by faith in Christ, having confidence in the sure hope of our eternal life, and especially focusing on loving others, is the path the Bible calls us to live. 

Living our lives with these attitudes gives us purpose and encouragement to make it through any challenges we face!

Join me this Sunday morning as we take a closer look at the third principle we should guide our lives by.
