Pastor’s Notes


Pastor’s Notes

This past Sunday was a real blessing as the Holy Spirit moved across our congregation and brought many of us to the altar.  Testimonies of God’s work in individual lives were given and many rededicated their lives to the Lord they love.  A reminder was given that although we may all be different and not always see things exactly the same, we are “for sure” united in Christ.  My prayer is that the revival that started Sunday will continue on for the days, then months and then years to come until Jesus comes again. 

The leaders of NMBC met Saturday and closely studied Philippians 2:1-11.  Our hearts were broken, but then revived, as we were reminded we should have the attitude (mind) of Christ.  Christ is our example!  He is our leader!  This is His church!  He is our foundation!  We should be like Him!

Let the Lord speak to you through this scripture as He spoke to us:

“Therefore if there is any encouragement in Christ, if there is any consolation of love, if there is any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and compassion, make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose.  Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.  Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, who although he existed in the form of God did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant and being made in the likeness of men.  Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death even death on a cross.  For this reason also, God highly exalted Him and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus Every Knee will Bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

May the Lord use this scripture to move in your heart as this word from Him moved in the lives of your leaders!  EVEN NOW my we have the attitude of CHRIST!!!
