May 2017 Newsletter

From the Pastor's Desk, May 2017

Good day all.

God has placed a pressing subject on my heart and I would love to share it with you today.
I have discovered that resentment has the ability to kill your joy the way that sickness and disease destroys the body.

 So what is resentment you ask? Resentment is bitter indignation at having been treated unfairly.

 When we harbor resentment in our hearts, it causes us to become blind to the joy and peace of forgiveness. Satan wants us to focus and concentrate on the issues that cause us so much pain, grief, and anger.

 He does this to keep our eyes off of the blessings and love of God. This is detrimental to our well-being and fruitful living. We become so consumed with retaliation and “getting them back” that we totally forget that Jesus Christ forgives us daily when we sin against Him.
I will be the first to admit that forgiveness is difficult in many instances, but we must also keep in mind that holding on to negative things in the past will stunt our spiritual growth and will sometimes cause unintentional pain to those around us whom we love.

We must learn to let go and truly let God deal with our struggles. A weight will be lifted and you will discover that your hands will too.

Ephesians 4:32 - And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.
    Rev. Harold E. Harris Sr., Pastor
