From the Pastor - March 5, 2017

Dear Friends,

I think it is safe to say that none of you have secret plans for global domination. None of you are employing evil schemes to bump off your competition while you claw your way to the top of your profession. I think I can say with confidence that none of you have family members chained in the basement so you can rule over their lives.

Whew! That means none of us have control issues then, right? Wrong! Each of us struggles with control. It can be a bigger issue at various points of our life depending on what you are going through but to be human is to want to control some things.

In our Biblical selections this morning we will hear about God giving up control of his creation and Jesus refusing to take control when he was tempted.

Speaking only for myself, I am not God and I am not Jesus. I would do well to recall on a daily basis that the only one who deserved control turned it over.  Now it's up to me to do the same. Freely. In response to the love that God has already shown to me.

In God's Grip,
Pastor Mark
