Pastor’s Corner – Thy Word

By Rev. Dennis Van Gorp

Family Life Christian Center

From Psalm 119:89, 105 we read:  “Your Word, O Lord, is eternal, it stands firm in the heavens.  Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.”

Many people go to great lengths searching for guidance and direction for their life.  They try all sorts of religions and self-help experts.  Yet their journey to fulfillment is fruitless and frustrating.

In that respect, Christianity is not really a religion, rather it is an ongoing relationship with our Almighty God.  We seek to develop a close friendship with our Lord.  He is alive and we can regularly talk with Him, it’s called prayer.

God gave us His written Word so that we could learn all about Him and His ways of doing things.  It is solid and allows us to gain direction and guidance for our life, finances, job, marriage and how to raise our children.  Best of all, it has no end, it is forever.  It never gets ‘out of date,’ it is always current.

In the darkness of life’s difficult times, God’s Word will shine like a light upon the path He knows we should take.  He will not lead us down the wrong road.  We can trust His guidance, because He loves us and wants the best for us.  Life will be good as we follow and obey His Word.

I would like to thank all of you who have been praying for me recently.  I spent some time in the Cardiac hospital and left after receiving three stent implants.  Bypass surgery was felt to be overly dangerous due to a weakened heart.  Thank you and bless you for your prayers.
