Life is like a two thousand piece puzzle. I remember my mother doing large piece puzzles as a pastime when I was growing up. She would open the box and spread out the pieces that would cover the dining room table. It could take her a few weeks or even a month to come up with a finished product. I asked her what if all the pieces won't in the box to start with or if in the time it took to fit it together pieces got lost? She didn't seem to be too concerned as she would do her part to fit each piece in its proper place.
For us who are in God's family each piece of the puzzle is like someone we know and only by working to fit us together do we get the picture of what Christ is doing on the earth. Ephesians 4:15 "speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love."
The trouble is we all have a free will and our will may fight with God's will for where He has placed us. We must surrender ourselves to be faithful to allow His Holy Spirit to knit us together. Ephesians 6:13 "Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand." Continue to stand and to be faithful for the Lord will change your world and others will see your good works and glorify God in Heaven.
This Sunday morning I will be sharing a life changing message, "Falling In The Wrong Place." We all make mistakes but how our mistakes impact us can be different according to who is around us. Do we make our mistakes among friends or do we make our mistakes among thieves?
This coming Wednesday 7pm for Bible Study we will be showing the movie, "The War Room." This is an excellent heart warming family movie about the power of God to change our lives. It centers around a troubled family and how the Lord uses certain things to heal their broken relationships. Please join us.
Next month on Saturday March 19th 8:30 am Martin McCarthy and the men's group (with the help of our ladies) will be hosting our annual Men's Breakfast. We have already booked the Salvation Army church for this great event and are expecting the Holy Spirit to work to help us to become all that we should be. Our guest speaker will be the National Director for the Canadian Fellowship of Christian Ministries Pastor David McGrew. Pastor David is a man of profound wisdom and God has given him a great ability to impart that wisdom to people everywhere. David travels much throughout Canada ministering in the strong Apostolic gift that God has given to him. David and his wife Jeanne currently serve as Pastors of Keystone Victoria Christian Ministries in Victoria, British Columbia. David will also be ministering on Sunday the 20th of March in our church.
We have recently had two request for Water Baptism. We are working on a time to provide this ministry and if you would desire to be water baptized please contact Pastor Bruce for more details.
Continue to pray for all those in need, looking forward to seeing you soon, lots of love, Pastor Kevin and Alice
