Robin’s Corner

Greetings!

The following devotion was sent to me suggesting that it be shared in a Wednesday devotion. It is from In Touch ministries from May 30, 2018 and is titled, “Left as Witnesses.”

One of the biggest problems in the church today is that many Christians do not see themselves as servants of the Lord. However, it isn’t His will that we simply come to church and listen to sermons. He wants us to go out and be witnesses for Christ wherever we are or wherever He sends us.
The roles and methods by which we carry out this task will be different, but each believer has a vital role to play (1 Corinthians 12:4-20). Individually, you may feel as if your efforts have little impact, but the Lord can work wonders through a willing servant. No one is too “messed up” to be used by Him—He specializes in taking broken people and making them whole. Nor does anyone reach an age when he or she is no longer useful. You can be sure that as long as you’re still alive, the heavenly Father isn’t done with you.
The question isn’t whether or not we are adequate to be His witnesses, but whether our hearts are willing. The Lord has promised the power of the Holy Spirit to accomplish His purposes through our life, but if we won’t use His divine strength, then we waste opportunities for impact. Earthly responsibilities have a way of stealing our attention and limiting our obedience to the Lord. However, nothing in life is more important than doing the will of the Father.
Have duties and pleasures of this world lured you away from your responsibility to tell others about the Savior? Salvation is not just an experience to be enjoyed; it’s a gift to be shared. You don’t need a theology degree. Just tell what Jesus has done for you, and the Spirit will do the rest.


With the summer now here, we will most likely be spending more time outside, more opportunities to visit and talk with neighbors and friends, a slower schedule – so let’s take time to have those conversations about Jesus. Share the Good News.

Here’s what’s going on at Our Savior:

This Saturday, June 23 – the Youth Group will be going on a hike. For more information, contact Vinnie or Dawn Alotta.

Sunday, June 24, we will follow our regular Sunday morning schedule with worship services at 8:00 and 10:30 a.m. and Bible Study and Sunday School at 9:15 a.m. Come join us!
