When we take the time today to repair the mistakes that we made yesterday, we are then prepared to walk successfully into tomorrow. The love and forgiveness that we express to each other is a reflection of the love and forgiveness that we have received from God. When we don't love each other it's a sign that we are not as close to God's love as we should be. James 4:7-8 "Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you." When we are far away from God it's easy for the devil to bug us. Loving and forgiving others is a natural response for those that are spiritually close to God. If you need to love people more then you need to stay close and not stray away from a closer walk with the Lord. Enjoy the day and keep smiling as goodness and mercy walk by your side.
Get ready, get ready, get ready, for tomorrow morning @8:30 is our Men's Breakfast at the Salvation Army Church in Sydney. This event has been a highlight of the year for the men who attend. Pastor David McGrew will be our guest speaker and he will also be with us for our Sunday morning service. David is the National Director for CFCM (Canadian Fellowship of Churches and Ministers) and he speaks as one who sees clearly into us having a true relationship with the Lord Jesus.
Next Weekend is Easter and we will be joining with Bethel Family Church in Glace Bay @10:30 in the morning for a Good Friday service. Then on Saturday evening @7 is the "Passion of Christ." This will be held under the direction of Mary MacLean and is at our church location, 500 Terrace St. Everyone is welcome and there is no charge.
Continue to pray for all those in need. Looking forward to seeing you soon, lots of love Pastor Kevin and Alice
