OK, so things get a bit delayed at Gospel Light from time to time. It’s not like you didn’t notice that people are busy this winter doing the Lord’s work. God’s Word is timeless, and so also are our dear pastor’s inspired messages. So with that thought in mind, here is a sermon capsule from way back to January 11th, written by one of our sister’s in Christ.Our Service was entitled “Worry Wart”! Pastor Giardino used several Bible references pertaining to worrying, anxiety, depression, and anything else that troubles our minds. He pointed out how the word “worry” is not in our Bible. 2 Chronicles 20:15 “The battle is not yours, but God’s.” Pastor G emphasized to us how we need to move forward! In addition, if we fear, worry, & stress, we become paralyzed and stand still. The Bible uses the word “affliction” but “anxiety” nor “anxious” are not found in the Bible. The word TRUST was emphasized!!! TRUST in God and put the Lord first.
Psalm 37:3 says just do good! God will get you through, give it to the Lord! Sometimes we think too much about materialistic and unnecessary things. There are people who have no food, no money, no clothes, and we worry about other things that make no sense. When you are afflicted and are going through pressure, grab your Bible. You must TRUST in the Lord to get you through your situation. Pastor G says we need to be responsible, but should not take life so seriously. He stated that when you are fretting or fretful, and worry, you turn from the things you should not and need the most. KEEP GOD FIRST!!!!
