From the Pastor’s Desk – Nov 25 2017

“Will we have the opportunity to welcome you to our Bronte family, this last Sabbath of November, as we conclude our theme on the Reformation and its impact on our spiritual life and Christianity? Our guest speaker, Pastor Casey will give us a final challenge as we deeply reflect on the “Morningstar” of the Reformation. A pertinent excerpt from The Great Controversy further enlightens us. “The influence of this one man (Martin Luther), who dared to think and act for himself in religious matters, was to affect the church and the world, not only in his own time, but in all future generations. His firmness and fidelity would strengthen all, to the close of time, who should pass through a similar experience. The power and majesty of God stood forth above the counsel of men, above the mighty power of Satan” (p. 166). What are we willing to address or stand up for where our faith and our God are concerned? Do we mind or care about it enough that we would dare to be different? May our faith continuously stand firm and be fortified by God’s Word in these closing times of earth’s history as we strive to overcome the world (1 John 5:3-4) Let us walk hand-in hand with God, move away from the world, draw close into His loving arms, stand up for Him, kneel down to Him, take our place under Him, feel Him watch over us, see Him work around us, and allow Him to work in us and through us! ”
