God Hears Us. By Deacon Bruce McElrath.

“Taste and see” does not mean, “Check out God’s credentials.” Instead, it is a warm invitation: “Try this; I know you’ll like it.” When we take the first step of obedience in following God, we cannot help discovering that He is good and kind. When we begin the Christian life, our knowledge of God is partial and incomplete. As we trust Him daily, we experience how good He is.

Keep Your Eyes on Jesus. By Reverend Andrew C. Smith, Jr.

Many passages in the Bible give us encouragement when we are going through trials and tribulations.. Obviously God intended that the writers to include these passages in the Bible to give us courage in our storms.
For example, in the book of Isaiah we read, “Do not be afraid, for I am with you; stop being anxious and watchful, for I am your God. I give you strength, I bring you help, I uphold you with my victorious right hand. (Isa 41:10)
And in the Book of Romans we read, With God on our side who can be against us? Nothing can come between us and the love of Christ, even if we are troubled or worried, or being persecuted, or lacking food or clothes, or being threatened or even attacked. These are the trials through which we triumph by the power of him who loved us (Rom 8:31-37)

Who Do You Say That I Am? By Reverend Andrew C. Smith, Jr.

Peter’s answer makes sense. He and his brother, Andrew, had already made considerable sacrifice to follow Jesus. They had left their thriving fishing business and the security of their Galilean home in response to Jesus invitation, “Come, follow me.” They had staked their very lives on the assumption that Jesus was the long-awaited Messiah, the one who would restore the fortunes of Israel and save the people.

Congratulations to Jackie Robinson West. By Reverend Andrew C. Smith Jr.

We serve a mighty God. Congratulations to Jackie Robinson West. They are the United States Little League Champions! We are so proud of their accomplishments. It lets the world know that they cannot believe all of the negative stereotypes about African-American males. These young men displayed work ethic, character, and perseverance.

The Parable of the Workers. By Reverend Andrew C. Smith, Jr.

It is not always easy to understand the ways of God. In today’s gospel we see the workers failing to understand why those who worked just one hour received the same wages as those who worked all day. It reminds us of our futile attempts to understand why some people seemingly have been dealt a better hand than others going through life. Why does God apparently give more blessings to some than to others?
