Logos for December 5, 2020--A Pandemic Thanksgiving--Are You Serious!

Logos for December 5, 2020--A Pandemic Thanksgiving--Are You Serious! Somewhere in the Bible, it is commanded, “Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” Does that include the pandemic that pins this planet and the United States down this Thanksgiving? As far as I can tell, the command does not indicate an exclusion clause. Though let’s be quick to recognize this is not a command to “give thanks for all circumstances”— it is a command to “give thanks in all circumstances.” After all, how could we possibly thank God for the disease that has taken away our loved ones (1.41 million deaths globally — 260,000 deaths across the United States as I write these lines)? No, the command is specific — “Give thanks in [not for] all circumstances.”

Logos for November 21, 2020--Parents Keep Your Children Connected!

Logos for November 21, 2020--Parents Keep Your Children Connected! It is true that biblical mandates, pillars of our faith, and the principles upon which we stand are eternal. However, we must also acknowledge that times and events constantly dictate to us the need to review and adjust our methods and approaches to the way we provide ministry for members, especially our children. The Children and Adolescent Ministries (C.H.A.M) Department along with the committed leaders in our churches continue to traverse unchartered territory with excitement because our hope remains anchored in the one who knows the end from the beginning.

Logos for November 14, 2020--Effective Ways To Study Your Bible In A Crisis

Logos for November 14, 2020--Effective Ways To Study Your Bible In A Crisis. I was listening to a friend make a presentation earlier during the pandemic and a key phrase that was made stuck with me: “A Crises Is a Terrible Thing to Waste”.  I believe that every opportunity that we receive should be used to benefit us and this ought to be done by using the tools that God has given to us. As I reflect on the above topic, 2Timothy 2:15 reminds us to “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needed not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth”.

Logos for November 7, 2020--Stretching Your Dollar During Covid -19

Logos for November 7, 2020--Stretching Your Dollar During Covid -19. Covid - 19 has resulted in financial hardships for many individuals. As God’s children, we must remember the words of the bible as found in Psalm 37:25, “I have been young and now am old; yet never have I seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread”. The first thing that matters is that we maintain our spiritual relationship with God no matter what comes our way. We are to covenant with Him and be true and honest with Him. Secondly, we must remain faithful in returning to Him His tithes and freewill offerings. This should be set aside before any other spending takes place. In Malachi 11:3, the Lord says to us, “And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the Lord of hosts”. He has promised to take care of His own.
