Distracted??

Did you happen to see the newscast that drew attention to Law Enforcement Officers who have had so many accidents because they were distracted while driving? They may have in their front seat a computer, radar, communications radio, a cell phone and the dashcam. It doesn't take but a second to change someone's life forever.

I, too, am often distracted. I find myself driving and sometimes wondering "what was the price of gas?" I know I looked, but I can't recall. Or when I get by the airport and see a plane about to land, and I want to watch. Or, a pretty lady (or a dog) on the sidewalk may catch my eye. Not only while driving, but when I might be doing something else, my eyes, then my mind wanders. The dogs, the TV, the phone, or the clock may distract me from completing the job at hand.

Being at the bedside of those who have recently died has brought this to mind again. I don't know how aware they were of my presence, but I reminded them about Jesus' love for them as He went to the cross for them. We want them to be reassured of the hope we have in our Lord. We want to be comforted, knowing they are with God in heaven because of the cross. Instead of a good-bye we can say "see you later" to our loved ones.

As Lent arrives this year we are reminded: "Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. (Heb. 12: 2) Pastor Jeff is distracted with his wife Grace's illness, and is spending important time with her as she goes through treatment. We pray for her complete healing and recovery. I have accepted the opportunity to proclaim the Gospel to our daughter congregation for this Lenten season. We are going to worship together with them AT MOUNT CALVARY, Greenville, each Wednesday beginning Ash Wednesday, at 7 PM, with a soup and sandwich supper at 6 PM. HCLC is asked to bring a simple dessert, like cookies. I hope you will accept this opportunity too, as we worship with our brothers and sisters to the north.

What a welcome distraction God provides. A respite for a day's activities to just re-focus, even for a few moments, as he reminds us that He loves us. God so loves US that he gave his only Son, so that WE WHO BELIEVE shall not perish, but have eternal life. How can this be? Because of the disdain of some, God's will was done ... on A CROSS, through the scourging and shame.

How cruel can mankind be?? Just look to the holocaust, to ISIS, to controllers and angry people ... to the movies and video games ... the abuse and killings ... in role-play and reality. How cruel?? Look at the sufferings of Jesus. He did it just for ME! WOW!

GLY2, so do I, PB

In this present times, God will gave us a lot of distractions, temptations that will really get our attention. The thing is, how will we conquer it all. This world is just temporary that people are really into it. They don't know that the coming of Jesus is fast approaching. We are just entertained and focused on all worldly things. It's just so awful, we forgot our purpose here on earth.
