A Bit o'Inspiration
Social Distancing 2020
During this pandemic we are all dealing with a lot of cabin fever. It is very discouraging to see businesses closed and restaurants only open for take out or delivery. No groups of 10 or more in any area even our homes. Easter services cancelled at church, family gatherings cancelled for Easter as well. The one thing we all know is that “Christ is Risen” claim it rejoice in it.
We will get through this and as Pastor Joe told me when I was scared…
“Teddi, we as Christians should be prepared for this. Jesus is coming again!!!!!! He may not be coming through this virus but it will happen and we know where we are going”. Thank you Jesus!!!!
Pictured below was Pastor Joe’s idea to see his members and friends faces while he is recording his sermon for facebook live on Sunday’s.
He Put Our Lives Together
Titus 3:1-11 The Message (MSG)
3:1-2 Remind the people to respect the government and be law-abiding, always ready to lend a helping hand. No insults, no fights. God’s people should be bighearted and courteous.
3-8 It wasn’t so long ago that we ourselves were stupid and stubborn, dupes of sin, ordered every which way by our glands, going around with a chip on our shoulder, hated and hating back. But when God, our kind and loving Savior God, stepped in, he saved us from all that. It was all his doing; we had nothing to do with it. He gave us a good bath, and we came out of it new people, washed inside and out by the Holy Spirit. Our Savior Jesus poured out new life so generously. God’s gift has restored our relationship with him and given us back our lives. And there’s more life to come—an eternity of life! You can count on this.
8-11 I want you to put your foot down. Take a firm stand on these matters so that those who have put their trust in God will concentrate on the essentials that are good for everyone. Stay away from mindless, pointless quarreling over genealogies and fine print in the law code. That gets you nowhere. Warn a quarrelsome person once or twice, but then be done with him. It’s obvious that such a person is out of line, rebellious against God. By persisting in divisiveness he cuts himself off.
