Cape Blanco Lighthouse

Cape Blanco LighthouseThe Apostle John in 1 John 1.7 wrote, "But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all (or every) sin." Christians are called upon to walk in the light. I always think of a lighthouse or even a search light shining behind us to illuminate the path and surroundings in front of us at night. We are then walking in the light as the verse says! To walk in the light means to find a church home if you do not have one or look for one where the Word of God is faithfully preached. Give the fellowship or congregation there your all and honor your pastor or priest with your support and prayers. Learn to truly share with those in need and give Christ love in the fellowship and beyond. Do the work of the evangelist in leading others to your Lord.✞

Periodic Checkups

Bread and WineSaint Paul wrote concerning fellowship in the Lord's supper in 1 Corinthians 11.28, "So then, everyone should examine himself first, and then eat the bread and drink from the cup." It helps us all to attend Holy Communion on a regular basis. Make a confession of your sins to God and a clean break with them before you partake for this is part of giving Christ's love. Be sure to be reconciled with any you may have wronged or may have hurt you before you have fellowship around the Lord's Table. Bess Foster Smith an author, editor and publisher wrote, "Hold your life before you, the empty bowl lift up, let God pour beauty in it and fill the brimming cup." If God pours beauty into your brimming cup, then growth is assured. Saint Paul blessed us in Ephesians 6.23-24, "Peace to the brothers and sisters, and love with faith from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Grace to all who love our Lord Jesus Christ with an undying love." The Greek word for brothers and sisters (adelphoi) refers here to believers, both men and women, as part of God’s family. "Grace" may be translated as "Grace and immortality" to all who love our Lord Jesus Christ." What a gift we receive of immortality and grace from our Lord Jesus Christ!✞
