Life is like a Jigsaw Puzzle



Ministry in Motion.Church


Life is loaded with choices, like: get a job, go to college, join the military? Get married, date or stay single. Start a family, hold off or be a family of two. Follow a career path, be an entrepreneur or spend your days playing golf. Choices are everywhere. Some are easy, some...not so much!In Scripture, Joshua posed this question to the people of Israel:“…choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve …” Choose whom you will serve - the Lord who has proven himself trustworthy or something concocted and made by man. There comes a time in all of our lives when we have to choose the things of the Eternal. Once you have chosen to be controlled by God’s Spirit, reaffirm your choice everyday. Checkout the choices made in this video. And,Click Herefor more information on Mercy Ministries.Peace…Pastor Keith #minmchurch #churchpearland

The Eucharist

Communion. The Eucharist. The Lords Supper, where Jesus, the Christ, gave his disciples bread and wine during the Passover meal. Here Jesus commanded his followers to "do this in memory of me". This week, person after person filed by me and I said the same refrain: “the body of Christ broken for you – the blood of Christ shed for you”. I looked into each person’s eyes as I repeated these words. Some looked at me with an empty and hollow stare – as if to say, what? Others gazed back with a polite and obligatory smile and nod. Others, still others, responded to my words: “blood of Christ shed for - YOU” with a look that could only be captioned with the words: “Really! For me?” Look into someone’s eyes this week and tell them about the miracle of the cross. Shalom...Pastor Keith #minmchurch #churchpearland

My Brother's Keeper?

9.6.15 In the Genesis story of Cain and Abel, Cain cynically answers God by saying: “Am I my brother’s keeper?” Cain obviously didn’t think he was. He was being a wise guy. Today he might have said, how the heck do I know - it’s not in my job description to keep track of him! Let’s be honest: There are plenty of days when just “keeping” your own life running is about all you feel you can handle! But God invites us to love, stand up for, and kneel down in humility, to serve others. Yes, I am called to be my brother’s . . . my neighbor’s . . . even my enemy’s keeper. So when you look into the face of another, friend or not, what do you see? The things that unit you, or the things that divide you? A Sunday Thought…Pastor Keith#minmchurch #churchpearland
