From the Pastor’s Desk

Welcome to the Bronte Church Family today.  We have gathered this last Sabbath to study, worship, fellowship and give thanks together. It is an exciting and yet solemn time as we are on the eve of a New Year. Where has time elapsed? What have we accomplished this past year? Have we invested more in the kingdom of God? Are we further on in our journey with Jesus?  Have we laid aside those impediments that affect our communion with God? Are we too distracted by the world that we are not preparing enough for the world to come? This past year we have seen so many changes in our lives and in our world that indicate we are one year closer to coming of our Lord. This last day of the year 2016  falls on a Sabbath, and what a grand opportunity we have to review, reflect, remember and renew our commitment and covenant to our God. I desire to have a closer walk, a deeper experience, a fresh appreciation of salvation, a revival in my soul, and more love to God and others through service.  How about you? May we “seek the Lord while He may be found and call upon Him while He is near…” (Isaiah 55:6). Lord, make me over again and “restore unto me the joy of your salvation” (Psalm 51:12) today and from this day forward, Amen.
