Presbyter's Message

Motto for the Year 2018 

"Look to Him, and be radiant; so your faces shall never be ashamed" 
(Psalm 34:5 )


December 2018

From the Presbyter's Desk:

Greetings to you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

The season of joy is upon us, as we celebrate the birth of our Savior. In the gospel account of Luke, we see men and women praising God because of this birth. Mary, Zechariah, the angels, the shepherds, Simeon and Anna are those mentioned. The presence of this child evoked the response of spontaneous praising of God. Let the sound of praises and rejoicing raise from our innermost being this season as well, as we welcome the new born baby into our hearts with the gifts of sacrifices of praise, that openly witness to the name of Jesus. For it is good to make music to praise our God, for His love and faithfulness (Ps 92:1,2). Let us uphold our choir members who are practicing and are on a tight schedule for the Carols this year.

The season of Christmas also proclaims to us that Jesus came into the world to seek and save the lost sinners (Lk 19:10). Zaccheaus was a social outcast who experienced this special intervention of God. As Christians, let us also carry this mission forward, to include others into our community with a broad heart to love and to serve.

Our Harvest Festival was a blessing, as our church was able to celebrate once again the spirit of coming together and serving one another in the love of Christ. We were reminded once again of the selfless sacrifices which all undertook and the joy it brings forth to others.

As the year 2018 comes to an end, let us recall that it was the grace of God that took us forward as a church, for His ministry. As we continue to ask for his blessings let us not forget to rededicate ourselves as individuals, families and as a community for soli Deo gloria, (for the glory of God alone).

Let me end with this quote,

“So remember, while December brings the only Christmas day in the year,
Be the Christmas, in all the things we do and say.”

Wishing you all a Wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year.

In Christ,
Jess Mathew Achen.
