Our Current Virtual Church Message

Reflections Of The Soul

Your Importance

Never undervalue your importance. You may be the only contact others have with the peace and love of God. The simplest smile, the smallest gesture, or the smallest touch of the hand, can turn a life of darkness into a life full of God's light and love. So many lives are caught up in darkness of every kind that many have come to believe the darkness is normal. The darkness engulfs so many souls the smallest action on your part can give others enough light they can find our Savior.

Fear

Free floating fear in the heart and soul can be the result of no healing love. You hold the keys to God's kingdom within your soul. Regardless of consequences, you must make every attempt to bring the healing love of Christ to the hurting and broken people in your life.

Ripples

We all plant many seeds in the hearts of our families, friends, co-workers, and others in our life. We cannot see the importance of our acts. We cannot see the consequences of our life in the world. A stone thrown into the center of a pond sends ripples out many times further than the initial contact point. Likewise, the light you shine in the life and heart of others ripples out throughout the world and throughout the ages. When you do not send out ripples of Christ's light out, only a void full of darkness exists.

Surrendering

Learn to live in peace, harmony, and the love that can come only from a surrendering spirit. Give up to Christ all you are and all you have. Surrender your all to Christ. The more you try to keep yourself for yourself, the darker your heart becomes. Giving away and surrendering up your life to God opens the door of your heart to His infinite love. Open your spirit and soul. When you open your heart, mind, and soul to the touch of God you will find peace, love, joy, and the infinite riches God has placed within you.

Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is not just a holiday in November. Living in thanksgiving is a life-giving process of surveying the wonders of God's beautiful love. Living in thanksgiving is a spiritual lifestyle lifting your soul up toward heaven. Living in thanksgiving is the ability to see the small flickering lights of love in the heart of little children. Living in thanksgiving is the process of waiting on God long enough to see Him work in situations, places, and lives where there is no earthly hope of ever seeing God. Living in thanksgiving is a process of counting the marvelous blessings God has given us as our heart aches from the traumas and the tragedies of life.

Trust

Every heart can sing and sail toward God if we are willing to trust God with our heart. To trust God with our heart means we must open ourselves up to Him. To trust God means we let Him surround the pain, anger, bitterness, and rancor within us. His loving touch, if we will take the darkness of our heart to Him, will heal us.

Turning Away

The willing suffering of Christ on the Cross was done so your own present sufferings would not have to be carried any more. Christ's sufferings for you were meant to take the searing pain away from you, if you will only turn away from bitterness and anger. Repentance is not just a process to confront our own wrong doing, but also a process to confront what wrong doing from others has done to us. Others can inflict wounds on us causing our heart to remain torn. When our heart is torn, the repenting we are called by Christ to do also helps us expose the wounds in our heart. We are called to turn away, not just from our sins, but also from the effects of the sins of others. No matter who we are or where we are in our life, we must turn away from the darkness. Turning away from the darkness may, for you, be a daily requirement. Some wounds, regardless of the source, are so deep a lifetime of daily turning away may be required. Repentance for some may take the form of a daily battle against the powers, forces, and evil spirits inhabiting this world. All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Some have sinned because of the hurt, degradation, and violation of their spirit by others. However, repentance or turning away from the soul stealing sins committed against us is the same kind of turning away we must do with regard to our own sin.
