Where has the year gone?

     Merry Christmas to all of you faithful members of Spirit Filled Church. Once again, we find ourselves asking “where has this year gone?” Well, the truth is, we are running out of time. Yes, there is an end to this dispensation, God isn’t running out of time, He is eternal. However, until we receive our glorified bodies, we are subject to running out of time.

     Thank God for the Christmas season because it reminds us that because God became flesh. He has made all who will believe become spirit beings. Jesus took on this human frailty for one reason and that of course to sacrifice His sinless body to transform us into His likeness. 2 Corinthians 5:21 clearly teaches this truth to all who will receive Him as our Lord and Savior.

     Our hearts go out to Pat, Annie and Gabriel as we know this is one of life’s tallest mountain. Thank God for the body of Christ who always rally’s to support those members who are hurting. We know Brother Ted is basking in the glory of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I really believe it will not be long before we will join up with the saints who have gone on before us.

     We must focus on Jesus because we know the enemy will try and distract us but as we pray and stay in His Word He will complete the good work He began in us. I am determined to lift His name higher this Christmas than ever before. In spite of all the difficulties of life, we have the greatest hope because He was willing to come save His people from their sins.

     What a great and mighty God we serve. Let’s all pull together to encourage those who are hurting with the good news of Christ’s birth.

God Bless, Pastor Roger
