Dr. W's Reflections...

          This next Sunday Morning, we will “install” new Board Members for 2020 as well as recognize those who are continuing their terms of service. We will also honor and recognize those whose terms of service as Board Members and Officers ended in 2019. 

          Let’s continue to fill up the table for the “Souper Bowl of Caring” Food Drive which continues to February 2nd. All the food items that we collect will be delivered to Allen Community Outreach. 

          It is exciting to see how God is blessing us and connecting us with our community and neighborhood. Let’s remember that we have been “blessed to be a blessing.” So, let’s be sure to keep praying: “Lord send people to us and send us to people.”


The Lord be with you,


Wyatt

BUILDING ON THE “ROCK” OF CHRIST (Matthew 16:13-18) 


          “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” 


          Foundations matter. From the world of architecture, we learn that any kind of manmade structure is only as strong as its foundation. In a similar way, we learn from the experience of our daily lives that our faith, i.e., the framing of what we choose to believe is only as strong as its foundation. 

          Foundations matter. The confession that Jesus is “the Christ, the Son of the living God,” is the confession upon which we are invited to build our faith. When you and I were baptized, we were asked something similar to this: “Do you believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God?” And now, any time and every time we make this confession of Jesus in the witness of our daily lives, we will be blessed by him. In addition, any time and every time we make this confession of Christ, we will be building our life and faith on the solid “rock” of Christ.
