FROM THE PASTOR …
Jesus Is Lord
The crowds and the twelve disciples saw Jesus in a number of different roles. He was a teacher, a healer, a miracle-worker, and a man with great authority. When the Lord calmed a storm through His words, the twelve disciples asked one another, “‘Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!’” (Mark 4:41)
Jesus was fully God and fully human at the same time. When writing to the Philippians from prison the Apostle Paul beautifully summarized who Jesus is. “Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2:6-11
In whatever role I find myself I must remember that I will always retain one role: disciple of Jesus. Whether I am husband, father, grandfather, friend or neighbor, I must always reflect that the Lord of my life is Jesus. Easter is the perfect time to celebrate who is Lord of all.
Easter Blessings! Pastor Ken
