Cherokee: The God Of The Ages

FROM THE DESK OF THE PASTOR

For MAY 16, 2011

ankind has always been fascinated by the reflection of themselves whether from the surface of a still pool of water or upon the smooth surface of some mirror like metal.  In fact ancient people often times made mirrors from bronze, and the bronze of Cornith was especially famous as the best bronze of the ancient Mediterranean world.  Some Corinthian bronze had even been imported to Jerusalem for use in the temple.  Nevertheless, the best of ancient mirrors provided only an imperfect reflection, leading some philosophers to use the analogy of an imperfect mirror to depict mortals’ imperfect attempts to understand the deity of God.  1st Corinthians 13:11&12 says,  “When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.  For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face.  Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.”  Paul anticipated this future age when he would know God directly, and his expectation influenced his ideas about spiritual gifts.  The gifts which the Corinthians valued so highly were only for this life, and in the future age there would be no more need for the gift of prophecies, tongues, or knowledge.  The reflection of the dim mirror would become a face-to-face view of The God Of The Ages.

Cherokee: THE LOVE OF GOD

FROM THE DESK OF THE PASTOR

T
he question that we as brothers and sisters in Christ should ask ourselves is,  how to keep in the Love of God.  In the book of Jude 20:21 “But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life”.  If we walk then in the foot steps of our Savior, we are sure to find that God’s love is never far from us.  If we keep ourselves in the love of God by efforts founded upon faith and prospered by prayer, we may then look quietly forwarded to that solemn future, knowing our sins indeed, but sure of the love of God and therefore sure of eternal life.  To know God is to know His Love, for He is Love.

Cherokee: The Productive Christian

FROM THE DESK OF THE PASTOR

For APRIL 17, 2011

he other day I was walking to the barn, when I saw a grasshopper just sitting around on some grass.  I spoke up, you better get busy or the winter will catch you unprepared, not having food to eat or a place to stay.  I thought, how easy it is for the Christian to get himself in this same situation.  Christ would have us to be out in the fields of life working that we would be prepared.  Matthew 4:18-20 says, “And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea;  for they were fishers.  And He saith unto them, follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.  And they straightway left their nets, and followed Him.” So as Christians, Jesus wants us to be productive in our Christian life.  We don’t want to be like the grasshopper, complacent and satisfied with the way things are today.  So let us be like the disciples, willing to lay down the things that are not paying off, and take up the cause of Christ of spreading the Gospel.
