A Word from Our Pastor
I am blessed to have such a beautiful wife and seven children. My family and I have greatly enjoyed
the Dunnellon area and are excited to be a part of such dynamic church growth. I have been ordained
since 1989 and this is my fourth appointment ministering to a local congregation. I have served the church
on the District level in two areas and the Annual Conference on the Board of Church and Society.
I can't imagine pastoring anywhere else at this time of my life. I have no doubt that God has blessed
me greatly by serving this wonderful congregation."
Pastor's Weekly Devotion
Our devotion this week comes from Luke chapter 16. This is
one of the shorter chapters that we have in Luke. In these few
verses you find some powerful teachings. In verse 13 Jesus
said that no one can serve two masters. He will either hate
the one and love the other.
Jesus concludes that passage by saying you cannot serve
God and money. Money is the number one issue regarding
struggles in relationships, escpecially in marriage. How is
the money issue of your life going?
Jesus gives just one verse, in verse 18, on divorce, adultery
and remarriage. There are three other passages in the Gospels
that deal with this issue and this is probably the shortest one.
It just seems to be a thought of Jesus that is put in the midst
of these other teachings.
The closing of the chapter is Jesus' parable on, "The Rich Man
and Lazarus." A number of questions arise from this story. One
would be...what is your concept of heaven and hell? Number two,
would be the interesting fact that the person in hell is still consumed
in their selfishness. They are wanting Lazarus to take care of their
every need just like a servant would in their previous life.
Jesus concludes this parable by saying that even if someone
would rise from the dead, there would be people that would still
not believe. Why do you think Jesus ends this interesting chapter
with those words?
Blessings this week.
