From the Pastor
A message from our Senior Pastor, Jim Bell
People Need the Lord
Greg Nelson and Phil McHugh created a song that describes how people need the Lord. Part of it goes:
Every day they pass me by, I can see it in their eyes;
Empty people filled with care, headed who knows where;
On they go through private pain, living fear to fear.
Laughter hides the silent cries, only Jesus hears.
"People need the Lord.
At the end of broken dreams, He’s the open door.
People need the Lord.
When will we realize that we must give our lives,
For people need the Lord.”
People need the Lord, and we have the opportunity to introduce them to Jesus Christ and to share God’s good news with them.
This Sunday is Pentecost, the day we celebrate the arrival of the powerful Holy Spirit upon Jesus’ disciples. The Holy Spirit gives Christians the power to witness for Jesus Christ. In the sermon for this Sunday, we will learn about several steps we can take to introduce people to Jesus:
- Pray for them daily
- Express love to them
- Pray for sensitivity and discernment
- At the right time, share why we trust in God or invite them to an event at church.
People need the Lord, and we can help them find the Lord.
With anticipation and hope,
