Dear Siloa Friends, Members, Neighbors, Supporters and Partners:
Here is the Word, some guidance for us, as we seek to follow Jesus and walk the path of this spiritual journey as God's Children, here in 2018.
From Jesus in Matthew 22.37-40
He said to him, ‘ “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.” This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.’
From Paul in Galatians 3: 27- 28
As many of you as were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus.
From Paul in 2 Corinthians 5: 17-18
So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation;
From Martin Luther :
"This life, therefore, is not godliness but the process of becoming godly, not health but getting well, not being but becoming, not rest but exercise. We are not now what we shall be, but we are on the way. The process is not yet finished, but it is actively going on. This is not the goal but it is the right road. At present, everything does not gleam and sparkle, but everything is being cleansed."
Pray for faith, hope, and love. Peace, Interim Pastor Dan Olson
