Pastor’s Corner

By Rev. Dennis Van Gorp

Family Life Christian Center

We read in judges 17:6, “In those days Israel had no king; everyone did as he saw fit.”  Leadership brings vision; but without true, dedicated leaders, there is no vision or direction.  People wander aimlessly, following their own desires.

Several times, we read in Proverbs:  “There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.”  God places in front of us, life or death; and then asks us to choose life.

True leadership brings unity and singleness of purpose to people; where we function as a team.  When each of us takes our own path, the result is uncertainty and chaos.  The majority of the rules and laws are obviously not followed or honored.

We have a king, His name is Jesus.  He gave us the Bible, where the rules are written down so that we may all know them.  They lead to eternal life in heaven, with the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.  Don’t choose to follow your own heart to your own desires, follow Jesus’ heart and experience great love, joy and peace.
