Pastor’s Corner – September 24th


“ He has commanded us to love one another.” ( 2 John 1:6 )

Each morning pray: “ Lord, whether or not I get anything else done, help me to spend this day loving You and loving others, because that’s what your Word says life is all about.” If you do that, you’ll treat those around you more graciously—and people will notice it. You’ll start winning where you’ve lost. The more time we give to someone, the more we show them how much we care and their importance to us. It’s not enough to tell them they’re important, we must prove it by action and investing in them. The best way to spell love is T-I-M-E! Love is not what you think or feel about others; NO, it’s how much you give of yourself to them. We as men greatly struggle with this. We say, “ I don’t understand my wife and kids. I provide everything they need. What more could they want?” THEY WANT YOU! They want your attention! Love concentrates so much on another that it forgets itself. This kind of attention says, “I care for you enough to give you my most precious asset—my time.” Why is now the best time to express our love? Because we don’t know how long we’ll have the opportunity to do so. Our circumstances change, people and loved ones die, our children grow up. The truth is, we have no guarantee of tomorrow. If we want to express our love we’d better do it now. So, who do we need to start spending more time with? What do we need to cut out of our schedule to make that possible? The best use of life is love, the best expression of love is time, and the best time for love is now. We make time for what we love.  What will it be? ONLY WORDS OR WORDS BACKED UP WITH ACTION!

Love In Christ Jesus!
