A word of encouragement
from the Pastor
Charles, may it bless your day! In 2 Peter 1:4 Peter writes about the
immeasurable blessings from God through the knowledge of Him. One
of the blessings listed is having escaped the corruption in the world because
of sinful desire.
It is interesting to me that Peter
used the word escaped, a compound Greek word meaning, to run off.
He did not say Christ rescued us,
although that is true. Peter painted a picture of Christ providing the
escape route and we choosing to run from the danger into His loving arms.
My encouragement for all of us today is to consider the
challenges we currently face; the trials in our families, at work, and even at
Whatever your situation is the
abundant blessing from knowing Christ is that you have access to Him! Run
to Jesus! Allow Him to be your escape.
Allow Him to be your refuge.
Prayer: “Father in Heaven, we pray
that You would be our resting place.
The challenges we face in this fallen
world can be so tough.
We run to You now, and commit our
challenges into Your capable hands.
In Jesus Name, Amen. God’s blessings to
