Pastor’s Corner – Looking Forward

By Pastor Joe Palmer

Fellowship Baptist Church

A new year is opening before us, and it either presents to us opportunities for fulfillment and happiness, or it howls a call for us to come into circumstances no more interesting than the past and possibly more frightening. How do you look toward the future?

Whether we are filled with hope for the future or apprehension is often a matter of how we view God. If we think that He is not there, then we are alone to face the randomness of life. If we think that He exists, but we doubt that He cares for us or approves of us or is generally good, then we may be waiting for a hammer to fall. If, however, we accept the fact that He is and that He is good to all who call upon Him in truth, then we wonder about what good things await us.

The evidence for God’s existence and goodness is obvious, pervasive, and extensive. The world around us shouts out that He is there and that He is good!

If you doubt God’s existence or His goodness, I would very much like to speak with you. I would like you to be happy. Email me at joeandsuzypal@yahoo.com.

Have a happy new year! Pastor Joe Palmer – Fellowship Baptist Church
