Pastor's Note for Apr 2012

Posted on Sun, Apr 1, 2012

Let’s become communicators for Christ.

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. I Corinthians 13:1

In our dispensation or era, some things from the past have changed and yet some remain the same. Relationships, family, government, laws, education, athletics, finance, commerce, and a host of other social facets have sustained in principle, while changing with the times. The fundamentals of life, however, seemed to remain intact even in the face of obsolescence. Mathematics, sciences, taxes, and death are just a few disciplines that seem to transcend cultural, societal and natural changes. One of the least common, yet transcendent factor of life, is effective communication. In a perfect world, exceptional, accurate and efficient communication will generally lead to bliss. Since we are far from a perfect world, golden communicators are in high demand. In fact, according to Forbes Magazine, world-leading mogul Carlos “Slim” Helu’s Telecommunication business’ net worth of $69Billon, suggests that the most demanded, purchased and supplied commodity is communication. His family is immediately followed by Bill Gates…yet another tycoon in the communication arena. Helen Keller, who was a famous author, yet severely disabled, said, “I’m just as deaf as I am blind, however, the problems of deafness are deeper and more complex.

In addressing the Laodicean “lukewarm” Church, Jesus said,

“Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. (Rev 3:17-18) 

If we truly desire to be reflectors of Jesus’ light to the hurting, hungry and hope-seeking, allow me to suggest yet another quote from Helen Keller, “All the world is full of suffering; it is also full of overcoming!”

Let’s become communicators for Christ.

Special Regards & Blessings,

Pastor Ron
