Message for December 31, 2017 from Pastor Shirley

James Wells, WROTE A SONG IN 1918 called, “Living by Faith”

I care not today what the morrow may bring,
If shadow or sunshine or rain,
The Lord I know ruleth o’er everything,
And all of my worries are vain.
Living by faith in Jesus above,
Trusting, confiding in His great love;
From all harm safe in His sheltering arm,
I’m living by faith and feel no alarm.

   Paul tells us in 2 Corinthians 5:6-7 So then, being always filled with good courage and confident hope, and knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord—for we walk by faith, not by sight [living our lives in a manner consistent with our confident belief in God’s promises].”

    Paul says to us, “We have not made it home yet. We are not in the presence of the Lord yet. We have not got our glorified bodies yet. In the meantime while we are here in this world we continue to walk by faith not by sight.

  Walking by faith and not by sight requires us to go to unfamiliar places at times. As we go God is faithful to reveal to us what is needed to continue as we walk in obedience to his word.
