Serving Christ joyfully

A disciple of Christ enjoys serving Christ. 

A disciple sees himself as a servant following the example of Christ. Jesus himself said, "I have set you an example that you should do as I have done" (John 13:15)

The disciple finds joy in serving Christ because he is serving the highest of all causes which is

the cause of Christ.  

Thom Rainer, in his book "I Will", says "It is time for a change among church members around the world to seek to serve rather than seek to be served.

Are you joyfully serving Christ? I f not I hope

you will begin  today!

This weekend we celebrate Veterans Day and we are very thankful for all of our military veterans! Because of their sacrifice we live in a free country.


I am also thankful for the many faithful veterans of the Christian faith. Because of their sacrifice I have grown in my own faith. Because of their sacrifice our churches have reached others for Christ. 

Are you serving Christ today? Are you a veteran of the Christian faith who is in the battle for Christ? Are other disciples of Christ benefitting from your service to our Lord? I hope so. 

By God's grace I encourage us all to "Fight the good fight of the faith"

(1 Timothy 6:12)

happy thanksgiving

I came across this brief thanksgiving poem and wanted to share it:

Thanks to God for my Redeemer,

thanks for all thou dost provide!

Thanks for time now but a mem'ry,

thanks for Jesus by my side!

Thanks for pleasant, balmy spring,

thanks for dark and dreary fall!

Thanks for tears by now forgotten,

thanks for peace within my soul!

Remain by the manger

December 11, 2017

Martin Luther said "Let us not flutter too high, but remain by the manger and the swaddling clothes of Christ, in whom dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily." In this quote Martin Luther touches on both the divinity and humility of Christ.

During the Christmas season there is much busyness, glitz, glamour, and commercialism. In the midst of this the words of Martin Luther still ring true. This Christmas let's make sure we remain by the humble manger and worship Christ who is Immanuel, "God with us."

Merry Christmas !
