Praise the Lord my beloved sisters and my brothers,
It has been a very long time since I did a pastoral reflection on our website. However, Brother Vermon does such an impressive job keeping our site current with church activities and events. However, as we approach a new year with so many changes and in some cases so many challenges ahead of us, I felt compelled to share with not only my congregation, but with whomever visits our site.
First and foremost, it is imperative, that as the body of Christ, we present ourselves as such! In a world, at a time, when anger, bitterness and hopelessness has taken hold, we must share the love of Jesus with whomever we can, as often as we can. As difficult as this may seem at times, it is not optional! Jesus asked, “how can we say we love Him whom we have never seen and hate our brother who we see every day?” As the body of Christ, it is imperative that we live out the Gospel Message of love. Our response to the old school song, "What's Love Got To Do With It?, needs to be, "everything!"
As we celebrated the birth of Jesus, we were reminded over and over that it was His love for all humanity that He came to earth in the form of man on that special Day. His love was further expressed on the cross. My beloved sisters and beloved brothers let us revive the power and presence of that love in our love for one another. The world is watching to see how we will respond to what lies ahead. We can meet each day with fear, doubt and coldness in our heart, or we can approach each day with peace, love and hope.
As the old hymn says, my hope is built on nothing less, then Jesus blood and righteousness, I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly lean on Jesus Name. On Christ The solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand, all other ground is sinking sand. Luke 1:78 and December 25, serves to remind us my beloved, that in spite of a world filled with so much darkness that, "through the tender mercy of our God....The Dayspring from on high has visited us." That dayspring is Jesus, the light of the world!
Loving you all and holding you close in my heart, thoughts and prayers, I remain yours in His service,
Pastor Gloria Wade Dillon
