Hello friends,

As we start our first week into the month of June, we continue to pray for our family and friends in need;

Walk in to any big box store and I am amazed at the number of choices, from light bulbs, to interior paint colors, to chewing gum that there are to choose from. Everyday, our lives are full of choices. Almighty God gives Christians the freedom to choose. Basically, we are free to make our decisions about how we live, what we say, whom we love, where we live, how we vote and who we vote for and on and on. St. Augustine theorized that when folks truly have a genuine love for God, we can do anything we want to do. Now let’s think about this for a minute. If we truly have a genuine love for Almighty God, with heart, mind, soul and strength then it makes sense that we would choose to do only those things God would bless and approve. You see, our love for God will take us down a path to choose more carefully those things we do in everyday life and those things that impact our loved ones. Sin always tries to gain a foothold and overtake us, which is not a good choice. In Paul’s first letter to the church in Corinth, chapter 6, verse 12, he tells them that those who love the Lord will want to honor Him with how they live their lives, the words they speak and the things they do. As believers and followers of Jesus Christ, we should always try to choose the path of righteousness and those things that witness to the love of Christ. So, friends part of our prayer should always be, Lord, help me to choose wisely the better things in what I say, how I think and and how I act - things that will bring honor and glory to Your name.

Pray with me,

Almighty God, thank you for another day and opportunity to serve You and answer Your call to spread the Good News, reach out to those in need and make disciples of those we meet. Shore us up to meet the challenge and do better. Lord, You reveal Yourself as one God in three persons - God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit and You invite us to join You. Give us wisdom to cherish what You give us and generosity to share what we receive. Fill us with Your Spirit so that we may show courage, kindness and a sense of humor in the face of today’s concerns. Lord, in Your sight nations rise and fall, and move through troubled times. We are witnessing these times in cities and communities across this great country. Lord, be near to judge and save us from ourselves. May all of us be led by Your wisdom; may we search Your will and see it clearly. We have turned away from Your way, help us turn around and repent. May Your Holy and life-giving Spirit move every human heart, that the barriers which divide us may fall, suspicions disappear, and the hate we carry in our hearts stop, and when our divides are healed, we might live in justice and peace; and that we all work towards being one with you. Lord, forgive us, for we do not know what we are doing. If we have been help to others, let them give thanks to You. And we will celebrate with Your whole creation in the name of Jesus Christ when the new day that You are bringing dawns. Hear our prayer in the name of risen Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen

COMMERCE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH
Words to Live By

June 4, 2020

Hello friends,
You know, as parents of two adult children, Trina and I always did our best to make sure we were prepared while they were growing up, with bandages, ointments, tweezers sun screen, bug repellent and any other items in a first aid kit in case of accidents. And certainly, Trina’s 40 plus years as a nurse and Nurse Practitioner is a huge plus when it comes to the Cains and home health care. However, it is perfectly normal to be prepared for accidents, especially ones that are so often completely unexpected. Clara Barton understood the importance of being prepared for the unexpected. Clara was a nurse by trade and worked during the Civil War providing aid and comfort to soldiers wounded on the field of battle. So, dedicated to healing those in need, she saw a need to go to the front lines to deliver supplies and treat the injured. Too many times Clara, using her own money, arrived just in time with critically needed supplies of bandages and medicines, right before they ran out. Those that she treated affectionately nicknamed her “Angel of the Battlefield.” After the war, Clara founded the American Red Cross and served the remainder of her life being prepared to render aid to those in need.
You know folks, it is always good to have a plan to be prepared for unexpected changes. When things in our mortal world go wrong, they can have devastating results. However, we can all be prepared by keeping in touch with family and friends and keep a support network of folks that we can lean on if necessary. In Paul’s Second Letter to Timothy, chapter 4, verse, 2, he gives charge to Timothy to be prepared always – Paul’s words – “Proclaim the message; be persistent whether the time is favorable or unfavorable; convince, rebuke, and encourage, with the utmost patience in teaching.” And so, we need to give our thanks and praise to Almighty God for all that we have and for those folks who love us and are willing to help us out when needed, so that our hopes are protected and we stay prepared – even when sheltering in place, keeping 6 feet between us and the next person, coughing into our elbow, wearing a protective mask, staying home if we don’t feel well and worshiping online. To God Be The Glory!

Worship and all Fellowship Activities at Commerce Presbyterian Church have been temporarily suspended. We continue to comply with National and State Government and Health guidelines and recommendations from the Northeast Georgia Presbytery. The Session’s, and my, utmost concern is for the health and welfare of this congregation and as soon as we feel it is safe enough to once again gather in God’s House for worship, we will do so.

This Sunday (07 JUN 20). We will be reading from Psalm 8 and from The Gospel According to Matthew, chapter 28, verses 16-20 and I will proclaim God’s Word in my sermon entitled: “...Our Lives Don’t Belong to Us Anymore.” This is the first Sunday in June and we will celebrate the Lord’s Supper along with June birthday celebrations.

Service will be broadcast, online, starting at 8:55 a.m.
on the Official Commerce Presbyterian Church Facebook page.

And one more thing, we should never let the events of this mortal world take our focus off of Almighty God. This is a huge challenge. However, when Christ is central to our thinking, then we are able to view our situation from His perspective. You see folks, Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life (John 14: 6) and He provides all, both for this life and for the life yet to come.

I so much look forward to seeing each of you, all be it online, on Sunday and while you are at it, ask a family member or friend to sit in with you and see Jesus Christ at work in the hearts and minds of the CPC flock; I look forward to seeing them too.
CPC is just Good, Basic, Church – Godly, Biblical, Christian.
