Message From the Pastor

Dear Family of Faith,

What joy as we enter the month of March! Hum, let me think; is there something big coming up in March? The first thing some folks think of is basketball. I think there is a big basketball tournament. That's exciting. I remember playing city league basketball in East Point, Georgia as a kid. I don't think I ever scored a shot; but i digress. Oh, I know daylight saving time begins on the 11th. That's not  too exciting because we lose an hour of sleep. What is real exciting is that Easter is on the first of April and so we should all be thinking about that in the month of March. Easter is the time in which we all celebrate our union with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection. Consider for a moment the following scripture. Please turn to Cor. 15:1-8 and Gal. 2:20-21 in your Bibles and read the following scripture.

Wow! The resurrection is the very heart of the Gospel and the good news of Christ. Christ, the Apostle, explains that he died for our sins and he did so in accordance with how the Old Testament said he would. Not only did he die for me, he was also buried for me and he rose the third day for me. This means that you and I can be assured of eternal life with God. But there is more! When we put our faith in Christ he gives us power to live in this world. The Gospel is not just about what happens when we die, and that is pretty huge, it is also about having the power to live in the world in such a way that glorifies(bring honor to) God. If you know someone who has yet to put their faith in Jesus Christ for salvation, please share the good news with them and I would be thrilled to meet them and help them grow in Christ. The resurrection is definitely something we can all be excited about.

Love in Christ,

Pastor Woody
