Pastor’s Corner 01 January, 2012

“It is of the LORD’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.” – Lamentations 3: 22-23

To our Church Family & Friends

Let me begin by extending “Best Wishes” for a Spirit Filled New Year” to both You and Yours, having been spared to cross over to 2012 – Yes, One More Day, One More Chance, to be about our Lord’s Business; in Word, in Action, in Deed and in Godly Purpose.

 

In the scripture cited above, we have one of the most poignant expression of the GRACE and MERCY of God found in the Bible.  The wonder of the prophet was not for those who had been slayed or lost, but most importantly, those who have been saved, not consumed were it not for hope and relief through God’s Mercy.  Quite literally, these words represent you and I, that in spite of ourselves, our faults, failure, actions, attitudes conduct; yet God has given to each of us a brand new lease on life.  Thus the question is what we shall do with this unmerited grace?  It is a “call to be duty bound” from the Pulpit to the Pew… He is our help in ages past and our hope for years to come.

 

As we embark upon the new year, I encourage each of us to move from mere MEMBERSHIP to DISCIPLESHIP, to catch and embrace the SPIRIT OF EVANGELISM.  EACH ONE – WIN ONE to Christ in 2012.

 

Let us continue to be much in prayer for our many, many, sick and shut-in, infirmed, caregivers, and for suffering humanity both within and beyond the wall of our dear Church.

 

I would be remiss to not express the sincere gratitude of your “Pastoral Family” for your cards, gifts, and other kind deeds during the Christmas Season,

 

Faithfully yours,

Pastor R.M. Leffall, III
