"The Lord our God is one Lord: And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart,
and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength..."
A Word From The Pastor:
It was about this time last year, when we were gearing up to watch the Seattle Sea Hawks play its second consecutive Super Bowl game. There was much excitement in the air in the hope that they would win their second Super Bowl Championship.
It was amazing to see the transformation in our area in response to the winning streak they were experiencing. It felt as though everyone had suddenly become a Sea Hawk’s fans. People I didn’t even know liked football were now parading themselves around as die-hard Sea Hawks fan. It became an overnight sensation to dress in all Sea Hawk’s paraphernalia.
It is the natural human response to associate with the ‘winning’ team or the strongest group. In some small way we gain inner-strength and self-worth when we associate ourselves in the success that others have achieved. In associating ourselves with winners, we can view ourselves as winners.
Consider this thought from Paul:
“For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones… This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.” Ephesians 5:30 & 32
How much different would it be if we didn’t associate with a winning team, but were actually on the winning team. The Son-of-God conquered death to provide life unto his own. If we are a member of the body of Christ, then we are on the ultimate winning team. This month, consider the self-worth and inner-strength that we gain from being a member of the Lord’s body.
