Vicar Message - May 2017

Dearly Beloved in Christ,


After March winds and April showers, we are now in the
beautiful month of May -in which an earth is attired in all of it’s God given beauty.


Even though we are constantly reminded of the ugliness and violence in today’s world we can still rejoice the beauty of nature around us. God is unchanging in His being, wisdom, power, holiness, goodness, justice and truth. An attitude of Happiness in life is a matter of our will. The goal of every believer should be praise God regardless of circumstances and live a life according to His will. Knowing God in Christ is the compelling reason to have such a life. Each day is a new opportunity for offering a praise sacrifice to God. Through the praise, submission and prayer, weak hearts will be strengthened. ‘God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea.’(Psalms. 46:1-2)


Christ’s resurrection is the core of Christian beliefs and one of the most authenticated facts in History. During the 40-day interlude between Easter and the Ascension, he was seen by such trusted witness as Peter, the entire group of disciples and apostles, a crowd of 500 of His followers and finally apostle Paul (1cor :15:5-8). And many of
these same individuals who saw His resurrected body also witnessed His Ascension into Heaven. Ascension day, when we commemorate the translation of our Lord to Heaven-is also the cornerstone of Christian Faith.


True Christian love always seeks lighten the burden of others and to bring happiness to their lives. It is important to allow God’s love to show into our lives not only for the health it brings to our own lives but also for the good it brings to others. We have different spiritual gifts according to the grace given to each of us (Rom: 12:6). God’s
call to each believer is to obedient and faithful. Difficulties and defeats are parts of life and our response to negative situations can either shatter us or they can intensity our perseverance and confidence. It has been said that a mark of a champion athlete is not how he or she responds to a victory, but how a difficult loss on a previous day
has been met.


May God bless us all.
Yours in Christ
