March Pastor’s Message

Is God “on our side”?

If we mean, “God watches over those who trust him, to bless them, to bring good from everything in their lives” then we can say “God is for us; he is on our side.”

But in the sense that “God is our secret weapon to help us succeed in all we want to do”, then God is not “on our side.” He won’t be used for our purposes.

But we can be “on God’s side,” in the sense that “we’ll do things his way.” The Lenten season, the weeks before Easter, is a good time to ask, “Am I trying to get God on my side, or am I submitting to him, so I’m on his side?”
