Reflections- "being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." - Philippians 1:6
 
         The Pastor's Perspective
         
         I announced a few Sundays ago of the passing of one of our shut-ins, Sandra Bull.  Her memorial service will be held, this Saturday, at 2:00 p.m., in the Chapel.
         
         I spoke with our heating/air conditioning company this morning.  Still no word yet that the parts have arrived.  So, plan on being in the Chapel again this Sunday.  The total cost of the repairs is $9,800.00.  If you want to make a donation towards the repairs, please mark your gift for air conditioning repairs.
             
            I will be out-of-town next week visiting my mom.  I will leave next Monday and return on Friday.  I won't be publishing the Lifeline Online next week.
            
            Colossians 1:27 declares that "Christ in you, the hope of glory".  Stop and meditate on that verse for a moment or two.  Be in awe of that truth.  Christ dwells in us.  The apostle Paul refers to the indwelling of Christ 216 times.  The apostle John, 26 times.  God dwells within us.  The God who created us and the God who saved us dwells within us.  God isn't content to wait until we get to heaven to have fellowship with us.  He's made his home in our hearts.  He resides within us every single day.
            
            How does God dwell within us?  The Holy Spirit, God's Spirit, enters our hearts when we become Christians.  Tim Keller refers to the Holy Spirit as "the personal, divine resident of the Christian's heart."
  
            Christ in us is a powerful reality.  Every day more of his image should manifest itself in our hearts, our lives, our attitudes and our speech.  Christ in you.  How will that impact your life today?
      
           Grace & Peace,
