Pastor’s Corner: May 1st, 2016

Pastor’s Corner

01 May, 2016

“When Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, asking for help. “Lord,” he said, “my servant lies at home paralyzed, suffering terribly.”Jesus said to him, “Shall I come and heal him?” The centurion replied, “Lord, I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed.” – Matthew 8:5-8

 

Pastor Willie D. Hall, Interim Pastorasto

To My Tabernacle Family,

We have once again been blessed to come through another month of God’s blessings, where we have been striving to do God’s will.  We thank and praise Him for His grace and mercy.

As we enter this 5th month of 2016, let us reflect on the above scripture.  Jesus had just healed a leper and instructed him to tell no man.  Which we may find to be puzzling, and sometimes the master may tell us to keep things to ourselves, even if it’s difficult.  Because when he blesses us, we want others to know about it, however when he so instructs, we can’t hide the visible evidence.

After this healing Jesus encounters a centurion, a man of authority.  He said to Jesus, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented and before he continued Jesus said, “I’ll come and heal him.”

However the centurion said “Lord, I’m not worth that you should come under my roof but just speak the word an my servant will be healed.” Christ spoke the word and the servant was healed at the very moment.  Jesus said to His disciples, “I have not found so grate faith, no not in Israel!”

This lets me know that can heal from a distance, that time and place is no barrier to Him.

My friends, as we move into May, let us not limit what God can and will do if we give Him the chance.  We thank God for our Mothers who have cared for us down through the years.  Let us not wait for the Annual Mother’s Day on our calendar, but thank and praise them and God each day.

Finally, let us pray for our Pulpit Committee as they continue to evaluate candidates for Senior Pastor of our Church.  Pray for our children who are facing their Summer break from school, pray for our Church as a whole, and for each other.  May God’s blessings be each and everyone’s continually,

In His service,

Willie D. Hall
