WELCOMING YOU HOME

This is the season of Pentecost!

From the Pastor

There are so many stories of courage and bravery recorded in history through song, services of remembrance, and movies. Each of us has a time-sensitive list of these stories. It could be those first astronauts in space or PT109. It may have been a movie that engendered those acts of courage like “Rudy,” “War Horse,” or “True Grit.” It may have been someone’s brave battle with cancer like Coach Jim Valvano and his fighting words of “don’t give up…don’t ever give up!’ However, I usually hear of courage on a battlefield or an athletic field, but rarely equate that kind of courage or bravery with our faith. The Apostle Paul or even Jesus our Savior is seldom mentioned. Why is that?

Vince Lombardi, the legendary coach of the world champion Green Bay Packers once quipped, “Winning isn’t everything; it is the only thing!” For the widow who approaches the unjust judge, her vindication, her winning is everything! Her dogged determination and personal fortitude are all that she can hold onto in her battle with this judge, who accords no one, not even God, with any kind of respect. Yet there she is again and again and again stating her case, so much in fact that the unjust judge relents, not because of her correctness, but because of his exhaustion. He relents because she is giving him a “black eye” and is doing a number on his personal character. What a courageous story! Against all odds, there she stands, not like a reed shaken by the wind but one determined to be set free.

How much more will God grant this same freedom to those who pray and do not lose heart. So, God has not answered your latest string of prayers. Don’t give up. So, God seems to be so far away from your immediate concerns. God isn’t through with you yet! So, the pain and suffering are just too great. God sent his Son to suffer and die on a Cross. God understands. So, hang in there. Remember that the widow is hoping against hope. She has nowhere else to turn. Now is not the time to have “itching ears and to move away from the truth and wander into myths.”

The parable concludes, so when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith? Now the ball is back in our court. Jesus urges his disciples to pray unceasingly and not to lose heart. May God grant us the courage, the hope, and the bravery to endure and finally conquer! Our God is so great!

Storing Treasures

A smile can be a precious crown,

To show the world a joy renown.

The life you live, being faithful still,

And honoring your Master's will.

For every time you do your part

To share the virtues of His heart,

His rewards will never fray...

Storing treasures along your way!

A helping hand can offer hope,

To one who's trying hard to cope.

A helping heart can offer more,

To life a spirit and help it soar.

For when you do the smallest part

To share the love of God's own heart,

He is with you all the way...

Storing treasures as you pray!

A beaming light shines on your face,

Can brighten hearts with a warm embrace.

Reflecting love as when angels dance,

A ray of hope in a passing glance.

For when you're offered any part

To share the glory of His heart,

Accept it fully, you'll never stray...

He's storing treasures for you this day!
