Toward a Closer Walk

Challenges to the 2021 Election - Impeachment of President Trump - violation of our Capital Building - unprecedented security in place for the inauguration of president elect Biden. Truly we are living in unprecedented times and are stepping into seeming “uncharted territory.”


Throughout the year 2020 our theme focus was: “Jesus Is Coming-Know It, Live It, Share It. Our theme focus for 2021 is: “Walking With Jesus - Pray, Study, Witness.” God, through Paul, warns the church of Ephesus: ‘Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light.’ See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.” Ephesians 5:14-16 (NKJV)


As we see the events of earth’s history unfolding before our very eyes, I believe it is very important for us to be “Walking with Jesus.” This means that we will be seeking revival in our lives and in our church. As we pray, study, and witness, God will help us enter the “narrow gate” and stay on the “difficult” pathway that leads to “life.” (Matthew 7:13-14) Our purpose as individuals and as a movement is to grow in our understanding and application in our lives of the three angels’ messages (Revelation 14:6-12) and live our lives before our family, friends, and community in ways that their eyes and thoughts will be lifted up to Jesus. The main thing is to stand for what is morally right in a world that focuses on what is expedient rather than on what is right. If we maintain our focus on how God wants to develop and grow us and walk “circumspectly,” He will accomplish His faithful work in our lives and influence those around us in ways that will grow the kingdom of God. We all look forward to that great moment when Jesus will come and rescue his people out of this world of chaos. My personal desire and my urgent challenge to each of you who read this blog is to enter into a fellowship experience, “Walking with Jesus,” allowing him through the Holy Spirit to be preparing a people ready and waiting for His soon coming. God bless you each, Pastor Bill.


Lord God, please help us to keep the main thing the main thing in our lives. Accepting you as our savior and walking daily with you is the most important thing that we can be doing. Help me, help us to be the living witnesses you've called us to be. Please stem the tide of the coronavirus and bring a peaceful conclusion to the current political chaos around us.
