SERMON:

Title: “Relationship With God”
By:  Orbie Estep Jr
Date:  June 4, 2017

 

FROM THE PASTOR’S DESK…

At the Crossroad “I encountered a man on the Road of life, so sure of himself – so convinced he was right. He had (his) religion, but he didn’t know God, And though he had eyes, I thought that rather odd: He only could see what he wanted to see. So, blind to the truth that could set his soul free; the man charged ahead – unaware he was lost, until he encountered a Man on a cross at a fork in the road where the path became two and the man who’d always been sure of himself had to choose. Between broad and narrow, between left and right, Between things he could see, and things still out of sight. And I’m sure that the man would have gone the wrong way, Had he not encountered the Savior that day. But love rescued him Truth set him free Grace opened his eyes – he could finally see That the Man on the cross made the difference. Now listen, as this once-proud skeptic proclaims: “For me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” (Source unknown)
