A Word From Pastor Rich...
Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
I don’t know if you’re feeling perfect today, but I am not. Jesus spoke these words to those listening to the Sermon on the Mount not to condemn people but to challenge them. We are challenged to look at our lives and compare our walk with the likeness of our Father in Heaven. Jesus raises a standard that seems impossible, and it is, unless and until we come into right relationship with the Lord and allow His Holy Spirit to work in our lives.
We are invited to be transformed to the point where the characteristics of God find expression in our lives. A great thing about being a Christian is that the Spirit of God works in our lives as we allow Him to work, and changes us so that our character begins to reflect the supernatural character of God. He does this for His glory so we can be who He needs us to be in the world. God needs a transformed people to represent Him. Let’s continue to look to Him and allow Him to make the changes in our hearts and mind that will bring God the glory!
Spiritual Gifts Inventory
The Holy Spirit gifts each believer with at least one spiritual gift to be used for the good of the Body of Christ. We are most effective and fulfilled when we work within our giftedness.
You are encouraged to take a simple gifts inventory to identify your gifts and put them to work.
