Quick Word from Pastor Rob

Making the most out of your life what can you do?

Actively cultivate your faith.  When we do this it will promote both growth and development.  As we grow older the spirit must grow stronger.  One day Jesus was talking about forgiveness and the apostle’s response was:  “Lord increases our faith”.  We should all ask ourselves:  what steps can I take to increase my faith”.  Genuinely love people.  When people think about God they most commonly think about His love.  The world is filled with hate.  Hating doesn’t take much effort.  It takes work to love.  Richard Nixon once said:  “Always remember others may hate you but those who hate you don’t win unless you hate them and then you destroy yourself”.

Find something to be happy about.  One of my favorite scriptures is Psalms 118:24:  “This is the day the Lord has made we will rejoice and be glad in it”.  Every day is God’s gift so look for blessings and look for opportunities.  You might not get encouragement from others but you can always encourage yourself in the Lord.  Don’t mourn your past.  Everyone would like to change something but what is written is written.  Instead Paul tells us to forget the things that are behind and reach to the things that are ahead.

Maybe you can think of some other things to do.
