Words from our Pastor

Dear Brethren,

Here we are in the 9th month and we can’t afford to get tired of doing the work of the ministry. Our life as believers and disciples of Christ is viewed as a constant journey with one goal. Paul’s life was a constant forward motion for Christ. His whole life’s purpose and goal is revealed in the words he wrote in Philippians 3:7-21. Paul’s life was a constant reaching forth, ever forward to that goal. From the moment of that unforgettable Damascus road encounter when he asked, “Lord, What wilt thou have me to do?”, Paul never looked back!

As mentioned before, this Christian life is a constant journey. The way is obstacle ridden and more often filled with tests and trials. These tests and trials may even make our journey appear difficult at times, especially when observed through the natural eyes. Perhaps you feel tempted to slow down, or even come to a complete stop, seemingly with no desire to move on. Reaching forth (extending oneself) and pressing forward (pursuit), takes effort of will, and determination of faith!

Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him. James 1:12

Let’s make it happen! Let’s release our love, release our hope and be inspired while inspiring others. Church, let’s press forward! People are counting on you not to quit!

Committed to The Harvest,

Pastor Kevin D. Ross
