From the Pastor...

What are some things that you encourage others to do?  We encourage people to be honest, to take a vacation, to make tough choices regarding family, and even at times encourage people to do wrong things.  How often do we encourage our family and friends to be faithful in their walk with the Lord?  To go deeper in their relationship with the Lord?  Sometimes I think we view someone’s spiritual life and walk with the Lord as private so we just don’t go there like we should.  However, the author of Hebrews wrote, “And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching” (Hebrews 10:24-25).  Certainly provoking other believers to “love and good works” reveals how God expects us to get involved in another’s life by encouraging them to do good things for the Lord.  In fact, I believe that we should encourage believers to go forward in their Christian experience as much, if not more, as we encourage people to do things that are not spiritual. 

When someone misses church on a Sunday or Wednesday we should not say “well it’s none of my business where they are” as if we can’t play an important role in their faithfulness to the Lord.  The truth is God expects us to think of others and encourage them in their walk with the Lord.  When’s the last time you encouraged someone to come to Sunday school or get involved in men’s or ladies fellowship?  When’s the last time you invited someone to church or encouraged someone to join the choir?  It makes a tremendous difference in someone’s life when there is someone encouraging them to actively love and serve the Lord.  The Bible calls that provoking someone to love and good works. 

It really is a great privilege to know the LORD and to have the opportunity to be a part of His great work.  I believe with all my heart that the greatest work on the face of the earth is God’s Work because it is an effective, life-changing work that lasts for all eternity.  What work can compare to knowing, loving, and serving Jesus?  Knowing Jesus satisfies like nothing else because He provides ultimate meaning and purpose in life.  It’s my prayer that we’ll desire to be faithful to the Lord and to be used of God to encourage others to get in on God’s blessings. 

Let me encourage you to come to Sunday school and worship, to volunteer in our kids and youth ministries, to join the choir, to come to the marriage workshop on March 27-28, to get involved in our men’s prayer breakfasts and workdays, to get involved in our ladies fellowships, to enjoy God’s blessings that result from being a cheerful giver, to praying for your church, etc.  Join me church family in being intentional provoking others to love and good works. 

Love in Christ,

Pastor Mark
