Notes From Pastor Mike

"Good Health is Your Responsibility!"

 

     Our society is caught up in the health craze.  Health supplements have replaced the one a day vitamin.  Each of them promises energy and youthful appearance.  Some calm you down, some keep your organs intact, bones strong, and repairing the damage you’ve done for the last how many years.

     My question is: What are you doing to insure, because of your spiritual heath, you can make it to heaven?  

Questions you may have asked in your lifetime:

•   Who you are?

•   What am I meant to do here?

•   What am I trying to do with my life?

     The greatest of the questions in a Christian’s life is this, “How can I serve others?”  Albert Schweitzer said it well: “I don’t know what your destiny will be, but one thing I do know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who have sought and found how to serve.”  Genesis reminds us of why man is here.  “Then the Lord God took dust from the ground and formed a man from it.  He breathed the breath of life into the man’s nose, and the man became a living person.” (Genesis 2:7) Man’s fall destroyed the intimate relationship between man and his Creator.  Guilt and fear became a part of who we are, yet in spite of the fall, God desired fellowship.  Being God’s special creation gives us the power to control nature and make choices in a way different from the animal kingdom.  Man sinned and God designed a way for us to be reunited with Him.  He sent His one and only Son, Jesus to take our place.  10 days before the Holy Spirit came, Jesus ascended into Heaven to sit at the right hand of the Father.     

     Being born again is not optional, it is mandatory.  Daily fellowship is a beginning of a good spiritual diet.  Communication with your heavenly Father a must.  Small group studies, Sunday school, time alone with the Lord necessary, and giving of “the tithe.”  

     This is a bit of insight into the plan and purpose of the Lord so when spiritual health comes to mind,  it‘s result will be a healthy life style.  

Did you take your vitamins today?  Heaven will be sooooo good!

Just a thought.

Love,

Pastor Mike!
