          150th Church Anniversary

          1. Trust in God's Promises

            Have you ever heard anyone say something like, "hold fast the God's promises", "Trust in the promises of the Lord", or "God always keeps his promises?" Every time I hear statements like these I wonder, "what exactly are the promises of God?" What exactly should we be clinging to as we walk through our daily lives?


            The promises of God are many, and the Word speaks to all them. One of the first promises I recall from the Word is the promise God made Abraham regarding his descendants. God promised Abraham (Abram at that time) that he would make him a great nation (Genesis 12:1-3) and that he would have so many decedents that he wouldn't be able to count them. (Genesis 15:5) Boy did God keep those promises!


            The next promise that I think of is the one that accompanies the fourth commandment. As God issued our rules to live by through Moses (Exodus 20:1-17), He provided a special promise. The fourth commandment instructs us to honor our fathers and mothers and our days shall be long on the earth. (Exodus 20:12) God references it again in the New Testament as a reminder of what He promised in the Old Testament. This is the first commandment with a promise attached. (Ephesians 6:1-3) I truly believe that God makes no mistakes, so Him mentioning this commandment and this promise again in Ephesians, is intentional. Honoring our mothers and fathers is also a way for us to honor God. By following His commands, we are not only displaying hearts of Thanksgiving, but we are displaying a posture of worship. (Psalm 95:1-5)


            God's ultimate promise is the one He made when He created a way for humans to be reconciled with Him, through the blood of his son Jesus Christ. (Colossians 1:20) Jesus came to Earth, and fulfilled His purpose of saving us from our sins. (Romans 5:8) Thanks to the fulfilled promise of God and the life of Jesus Christ, we have the opportunity to spend eternity with Him in heaven, if we believe. (Ephesians 2:8-9) We can hold fast to the fact that God not only made a way for us to be saved, but he also promised to be with use each and every day as we walk this Earth. God promises to never leave us and never forsake us, multiple times in the Word. He shared it through Joshua (Joshua 1:9), He shared it through Isaiah (Isaiah 41:10) and even Jesus said "Lo I’ll be with you even till the end of the earth." (Matthew 28:20)


            In this season of honoring mothers and fathers for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, remember the promise God gave in the Ten Commandments. Remember what He promised Abraham regarding his descendants and look at this world now. Hold the promises of God close to your heart and allow those promises to anchor you in every stage of life.


            Growing up my grandmother had a saying, "Everything changes but the love of God". We can hold on to that promise today and always.
