You the members of New Berean are our first concern and we want to make sure you are being looked out for. We are constantly exploring ways to minister to the people of God. And the Lord has been gracious to us as we are using the online platforms to keep you informed, encouraged and aware. We are also asking you to keep us informed and aware of the things that are important to you through the Deacon ministry and your ministry Leaders. The Prayer Warriors are always communicating to us encouraging and uplifting daily message. With so much being said and to say, let be said in prayer and with words bathed in love and intended to edify (Eph. 4:1-4)
God is In Control – In a world of so many uncertainties, we all can be left in a fog of confusion and be overwhelmed. These events can have us so captivated we lose focus. In a recent message by Pastor Ricks, he reminded us that no matter we are experiencing, the God of the bible whom we love and more so loves us is still in control as he always has and always will.
We all need to be encouraged in these times. So many of us have been impacted (either directly or indirectly) by the ills of this viral pandemic. Our encouragement to you today and everyday is to:
- Trust The Lord (Proverbs 3:5) – “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not to your own understanding”. No matter the circumstance, the Lord our God wants us to place our complete trust in Him, and his ability, to sustain, rescue deliver and help us. In trusting him, he will give us a peace that completely overcomes our human comprehension.
- Be Found Faithful (I Cor. 4:2) – “Moreover it is required in stewards that one be found faithful”. The principle applies to every aspect of our lives. From serving to giving, from treating others, praying, worshiping and ministering to following the following and obeying magistrates and those in authority we are expected to be faithful (Tit. 3:1).
- Remain Committed to The Commission of Christ Pointing Others to Jesus (Matt. 28:18-20) With all of heaven’s authority, we have been mandated to share and take the gospel to the world. We are being asked to explore and use the means of communication to tell of the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
