From your Pastor;

        It seems that the church today is more interested in what a person says or does but pays little attention to what the person is.

        We all long for the ability to speak with power, or with eloquence, we long for our words to be brilliant in order to move someone to repentance and salvation.  However we fail to realize that this is not the vital point. The most important issue is  “who and what are you?”

        The important matter is not that you have been given a gift and therefore you speak, but rather that you know the Lord and therefore you speak...

        Jesus said, “out of the fullness of the heart the mouth speaks.”  So as Christ lives in you this becomes what you speak of. His life in you.

        The spiritual gifts are certainly important for us in sharing Christ up to a point. Then the truth of the Cross must take over, bringing a person to the place of brokenness, repenting, and trusting in Him. 

        Remember it is not your words, it is not what you say or do. It is what Christ says and does in and thru you that makes all the difference in the world. Go out church and pursue them... catch them.... then bring them to Him.

    “How will they preach unless they are sent?

Just as it is written, ‘How beautiful are the feet of

those who bring good news of good things!”

                                                                                           Romans 10:15

         It’s not about doing, or saying, it’s about being!!!
