IN THE WORLD, NOT OF THE WORLD
What is sin? What in your life separates you from God? Examine your life today and be honest with yourself about what is distracting you from connecting with God in a deeper way. What is keeping you from church? What prevents you from showing love or receiving love? What are you reading that is taking the place of Scripture in your life? Ask the question and look at your life with naked honesty.
Christ Jesus is in your heart, but what is filling your thoughts? This month ask God to help you remove from your life that which separates you from communication with Him.
“Since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God.” ~2 Corinthians 7:1
As Christians, we have been given the following commission in Mathew 25:19 – “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” Hand in hand with this challenge we also are given the responsibility to serve. In 1 Peter 4:10 we read – “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve other, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”
In this portion of our website, explore with us how God is leading us, here at Bethany Lutheran Church, to serve Him by serving others in need.
Bethany participates in the Food Bank’s food drop once a month, on the third Tuesday of each month. Volunteers from the church gather from 12:30 to 5:00 PM to pack bags for those who come needing food for their families.
