A Word From The Pastor

“To Be No More”

     I reflected on my life this past weekend. I thought about the people who had been in my life but are no longer here. I was reminded of my sister that lived on a very large property in Illinois who passed away in May of 2018.

     I remember her calling me, wondering how she could finance a number of repairs and chores that she did not have the funds for. After we prayed, within 30 minutes she received a call from the Catholic Society who were responding to her previous inquiry. They were sending 12 young people over to complete her repairs and chores.

     She was a believer and trusted in God for everything and she shared many stories of how God helped her with appliance repairs. She would pray over her veterinarian books to care for her animals and that she would be able to shoe her horses. The Lord sent her a special friend, named Fran who owned an animal shelter for cats and dogs. She made sure that my sister’s dogs were cared for and helped to maintain her property.

     The neighbors remember her as the fearless old lady who lived on the hill that protected her property even when intruders sought to do her harm.

     I think about those who impacted my life that are no longer here, they were so full of life. To think that someday we too will be no more on this earth. This realization can be a defining moment for a change in our life, or not.

     Those individuals who made a difference in my life assisted me in being a better person which allowed me to be a product of their good deeds. The Bible says, Revelations 14:13 NLT And I heard a voice from heaven saying, “Write this down: Blessed are those who die in the Lord from now on. Yes, says the Spirit, they are blessed indeed, for they will rest from their hard work; for their good deeds follow them!”

     With the time remaining, what do you want to change about yourself that will make a lasting difference in another person’s life?

     GOOD NEWS!  Join us each week at 10 a.m., Pastor Bill will deliver his Sunday Morning Sermon Message on video. You can experience his sermon via our Villages Community Website: http://www.Villagescommunitychapel.org

     May God bless all of you with good health!
