Pastor Weekly Bulletin Notes
 

Dear Church Family,

Have you ever driven by and just looked at a field of Milo? The first thing you may notice is that everything pretty much looks the same. The heads with grain are all about the same size and same color. The field maybe awash in reds, yellows, or greens. At first it may appear that there are weeds growing in the field. Upon closer examination you would realize that it was all Milo growing. About 1 to 2% of the field will have stalks that are much taller than the others. I wondered why this was in almost every Milo field that I saw. After a bit of research I found that the genetic DNA was different. They were made of the same substance, but one gene had been added which made the Milo grow taller.

I begin to think what we must look like to a lost world. Do we look just like everybody else, or do we stand out from those around us. The extra gene that we have would be  the Holy Spirit who has moved into our lives and now we look different then the rest of the world.

Yes, the world will think we look a little strange, but we have a gift that we can give to each of those around us. They also can grow tall and strong in Christ. When is the last time you have actually shared his love with someone?

Have a blessed day as you worship today.

In His Shadow,

Pastor David
