Except from Pastor Parsons article: Do Not Be Afraid

God said it to his prophets when he sent them out to proclaim a message his people would fight against. God said it to the leaders he chose to rule over his people. He said it to his people as they faced many enemies, enemies of both the body and of the soul. He said it to a young girl who heard the words of an angel and new that everything was about to change for her. He said it to a group of shepherds who were chosen to proclaim the coming of the Messiah.

God said it to his disciples who feared the loss of their friend and Lord...

Except from Pastor Parsons article: For Israel – For Me!

“When Israel came out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of foreign tongue, Judah became God’s sanctuary, Israel his dominion. The sea looked and fled, the Jordan turned back; the mountains skipped like rams, the hills like lambs. Why was it, O sea, that you fled, O Jordan, that turned back, you mountains, that you skipped like rams, you hills, like lambs? Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob, who turned the rock into a pool, the hard rock into springs of water.”

Except from Pastor Parsons article: What is Love?

February seemed like a fitting time to talk about love. What is love? Depending on whom you ask, you could get quite an array of answers. Generally speaking, if you look at love from a worldly point of view, you might summarize it as showing compassion to others, supporting others in times of need and in their decisions, forming some kind of relationship with someone, platonic or romantic.

Except from Pastor Parsons article: New Year . . . New You?

It’s that time of year again, the time of resolutions. “I’m going to be the best I can be this year.” With goals of weight loss, you may cry out like Jim Carrey’s The Grinch when he measures his heart, “Yes! Down a size and a half! And this time, I’ll keep it off.” Resolutions can cover a whole multitude of options. Weight loss; being a better person; spending less money; having a better devotional life.

So many ways to make ourselves better . . . and so few ways before we usually find out that we don’t really care enough to stick to those plans. Sometimes it’s easier to just stay the same old us, and maybe try again next year.

Greetings!

Happy (belated) Thanksgiving to you! With this season upon us we reminisce about all the things we are thankful for in our lives and throughout this past year: our families; our accomplishments; the new job we’ve been waiting for; our friends; our health, and of course, our faith. We have been so richly blessed by the LORD, so let us not forget to give thanks to God.

Except from Pastor Parsons article: Children of God

We’re now in the midst of our “Welcome Home” series, and as it started, we focused especially on welcoming all members home into our congregation here at Divine Savior. Why such a focus on bringing people back into our doors? It’s not so much about getting everyone back together in this building. It’s about the blessings we receive together as a body of believers, especially the Christian support we can provide for one another through the Word.

Except from Pastor Parsons article: Give and Take; Give More

If you’ve ever entered into a long-term relationship of any kind with someone else, you know that there is some level of give-and-take. It doesn’t matter if it’s friendship, work-related, or love. There has to be some level of compromise because you probably don’t agree on everything. Compromise is not a bad thing; in fact, it is necessary to find some kind of harmony, rather than one person giving up all their ideals or preferences. With compromise, all parties involved can complement one another, to fill in the gaps where the other does not.

This is especially true within the church. We’ve talked many times over about being a body of Christ and how there are different parts to the body. It must be so or nothing could truly be accomplished within the church. When you’ve spent long periods of time with your brothers and sisters of this congregation, it’s easy to see how we can work together, how we can compromise when needed, how we can become one whole, rather than many separate parts.

Except from Pastor Parsons article: Never Alone

If you didn’t already know, I love Country music. I play it or sing it while I’m getting things done. I was recently singing a song by John Michael Montgomery called “I Swear,” and the following lyrics stood out to me: “I swear by the moon and the stars in the sky I’ll be there. I swear. Like the shadow that’s by your side, I’ll be there. For better or worse, ‘til death do us part, I’ll love you with every beat of my heart. I swear.”

It’s a nice, sappy love song, and this line is to meant to express that he will never leave her, no matter what. The reason this verse jumped out at me is because he promised to always be by her side, just like a shadow. That’s a nice sentiment, but it struck me that shadows aren’t actually always by our sides. When things get darkest, they disappear.

It got me thinking that God makes a promise just like that to us, that he is always going to be there with us. But unlike the promise from the song, God is able to keep his promise. God’s promise can be found in Isaiah 54:10. “Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the LORD, who has compassion on you.
