Uncertain Times

by Pastor Brenda Gray

Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Keep The Darkness at Bay

by Pastor Brenda Gray
Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father.

It is the small everyday deeds of ordinary people that keep the darkness at bay. Small acts of kindness and love.

Jesus warns us that we live in dark times. He reminds us that because of Him we are the light of the world and that our good deeds is the power against the darkness for the glory of God.

Something to think about: There is one force that the darkness cannot conquer, the force of loving acts of kindness done in the name of Jesus. It is God’s people who turn the other cheek, go the extra mile, forgive and even love their enemies who oppose them. So today I challenge you to look for the opportunity to perform acts of kindness to bring the light of Christ to others.

Prayer starter: Father in the name of Jesus I am so grateful to you for the loving acts of kindness that you have shown me. I gladly look to share good deeds with others as well…
