From the Pastor's Desk

We are living in perilous times. Now surely each generation has been able to say that to various degrees and all of us, as individuals and families, have experienced times of peril and trouble in life.

Presently we are all sharing in a peril as we deal with a world-wide pandemic but this isn’t the first or even the most deadly. Concerning the end times Jesus said, there will be “pestilences”. A pestilence is defined as “any virulent or fatal contagious or infectious disease, especially one of epidemic proportions”. The Amplified Bible states, “[deadly and devastating] pestilences (plagues, epidemics)”.

But our perilous time includes so much more than the present pandemic. Violence and perversions abound. Millions (probably hundreds of millions) of people on earth hate Jesus Christ along with His followers and many consider it a religious virtue to kill us.

Certainly there have been believers in any generation in this present church age who felt that they lived in perilous times and indeed many have. There are places today that face chronic adversity much greater than most of us face over our lifetime. However we are starting to see worldwide there is a subtle yet systematic undermining of the Christian’s right to freely express and even practice faith that is leading to outright persecution.

I believe we can live in peace in these perilous times we are living in. We don’t need to lose our focus, we don’t need to sell out during temptation, and we definitely don’t need to lose our praise.

Maybe you have been struggling on how to cope during these difficult times. I want to remind you that the best thing you can do to have peace is to allow Jesus to do a work in your life. Keep your focus on Him. Make Him your main priority. Jesus said, “Seek first the kingdom of God…” When you make Him your main focus, you’ll have peace that surpasses all understanding.

Most of the time, I just share out of the overflow of what God is speaking to me. But occasionally, there is a need I see in the church or at least in the lives of many people, whom I love. Would you
