The Pastor's Corner
A word from our pastor ...
"Foundations of Faith"
When building a home we all understand that it must have a firm, solid foundation to withstand time, the elements , and natural wear and tear from people living in it.
Families are the same. Without the foundation of faith, it is easy to fall apart when times get tough. God designed the family unit with His perfect order and it simply doesn't work without Him in the center.
Almost 50 percent of marriages in the U.S. end in divorce. Without God as the centerpiece, our society leads us to believe that we will be better off, in times of difficulty, just to walk away. Our children are being raised by whatever ideology our government wants them to be indoctrinated with, instead of being trained up in Godly principles.
To those who are married, consider Genesis 2:24: "
Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh."
According to God's Holy Word, you are one through thick and thin. To the Christian parents, It may not be the most popular or the most accepted way to raise your child, but it's the right way because it's God's way.
Proverbs 22:6 tells us, "Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it."
Don't think you are doing your child any favors by raising them any other way. To the contrary, you are robbing them of the good life that God has already planned out for them.
Lord, help us to make right choices in our lives and the lives of others around us. Let the foundation of faith bind us and hold us together, in Jesus name, Amen.
Have a Blessed week! - Pastor Tom
