word to Welcome to our Church Website
From Pastor..."It is better to be patient than powerful. It is better to win
control over yourselves than over whole cities." [Proverbs 16:32]
"If you become angry, do not let your anger lead you into sin, and do not stay angry all day." [Ephesians 4:26]
Summer sunshine can also cause tempers to flair. There was some news story on TV
this morning about road rage involving several cars and a truck and who was going to overcome whom resulting in the possibility of all involved being charged. This afternoon
I heard of an 83 or 84 year old woman killing her 89 year old husband beating him death. Anger...were things really that bad between them?
Once in a while I page through old devotional books and in doing so I came across
a name that is in the news once in a while, Ben Carson, the world -wide renowned
surgeon noted for his techniques in seperarting Siamese twins.
In the devotion he told of the time when he was 14 that he got into an arguement with a friend over which radio station they would listen to and he got so angry, and almost without thinking pulled out a pocketknife and lunged it at his friend's stomach.
Fortunately, the blade hit his friend's belt buckle and broke.
Ben raced home and locked himself in the bathroom knowing he had a REAL
ANGER PROBLEM. He prayed. "Lord, please, you've got to help me. Take this temper away." His prayer was answered.
Anger is a natural human emotion. But, if left uncontrolled it can become very destructive.
As a young teenager, in a single-parent home, in poverty, with poor grades and low self esteem Ben was explosive. He had a dream though - to be a doctor. Someplace in those 14 years of life through the help of his mother he came to know Christ as his personal Lord and Savior. That relationship led him in his anger and pain to get his Bible and in it he read the verse from Proverbs 16 printed above.
It's summer. The heat of summer coupled with our human tendency to become angry
can bring horrifiying results. It could have in Ben Carson's life. But, the prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. [James 5:16] It was in Ben Carson's life!
It can be in our lives too because our Lord tells us it is. "That's not news, but it too is
reality" as Peter Truman of the Global News used to say.
"There is SALVATION in NO ONE ELSE! There is NO OTHER NAME in all of heaven for people to call on TO SAVE THEM!" [Portions of Acts 4:11&12] Jesus is the One to call upon!
He said about Himself, "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, no one gets to the Father except by Me!" John 14:6
"Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved!" Acts 16:31
