In the service this next Sunday Pastor Chuck will bring a message entitled...
"A Baffling Love"
based on 1 Peter 1:10-12. Do you love a good mystery? Have you struggled to learn something that you knew was important to your future, and while struggling with it you finally have a "a-ha" moment when it seems as if you suddenly understand it? The Prophets in the Old Testament trusted in God, they believed in God, but they struggled to understand why God didn't act to save them from the many disasters we read about in their lives. The Bible says that it was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves, but rather those who would follow in the faith in God.
When Jesus came in fulfillment of all the prophesies that the prophets wrote as they trusted in God, the answer to the greatest mystery in the history of mankind was revealed to all who would take the time to inquire to understand God’s plan for the forgiveness of the sin of all mankind. When Jesus died, and rose again on the third day, not long after His ascension back to Heaven, the Holy Spirit of God came importantly into the lives of everyone who would place their faith in Jesus Christ. This coming of the Holy Spirit continues today as we too have come into faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and this great mystery is fully revealed to us by the Holy Spirit directly through the teachings of the Prophets and of the writers of the New Testament. The great mystery is so wonderful, that even the Angels of Heaven desire to investigate this and desire to understand it as we do today.
The question for this Sunday is this. Do you too desire to investigate this great mystery, and if by faith in Jesus you come to understand this, the greatest truth in the history of mankind, what will you do with it? Will you, like the Prophets seek to serve those who will follow you in the faith so that they too can come to understand this truth? Will you, like the Christians who came before you seek to help others to be exposed to this eternity saving truth? You truly can’t come to understand this, the greatest truth ever known, and do nothing with it.
Come this Sunday to learn this truth and then understand why it is so important that we share this truth with others.
Find out with us how we can have a heart that is more like our Father in Heaven and can show forth the love and forgiveness we have found by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
