Relationships, we are all in some type of relationship(s). It could be a marital relationship, husband and wife. It could be a parent to child relationship. As a single person, if you don’t have any children, there are still relationships that you are involved in. It could be the interaction that you have with your co-workers or school mates.  It may be the interaction and relationships that are formed with your neighbors. At LFBC, we are joined together by Christ, we have relationships with each other and with other brothers and sisters in Christ. Our heavenly Father gives us wisdom as it pertains to our relationships. He tells husbands to love their wives just as Christ also loved the church. He tells the wife to respect her husband. God tells parents to instruct their children, and for children to obey their parents. To paraphrase Ephesians 6:5-9, God tells employees to obey their employers, and He tells the employer to treat the employee fairly. Let us seek to govern our interactions in our various relationships in a godly way. Basically, let’s follow the commandments that we receive from the Word of God, and remember the words of Jesus who said: “To love God with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength; and to love your neighbor as yourself.” If we do these things, our relationships will be much better and of course they will be pleasing to our Lord.

In reading Genesis chapters 1 through 6, I am reminded that it’s a tremendous blessing to “walk” with God. In Gen. 5, Enoch walked with God and he got an express ride to Heaven without even dying! In Gen. 6, because of the sinfulness and wickedness of man, God was going to destroy the entire earth; but Noah, who walked with God, found favor and grace in the eyes of the Lord (Gen. 6:8). So, since Noah “walked” with God and found favor and grace with our God, our Heavenly Father used Noah to build an Ark and preserve humankind. If you are walking with God, continue to do so; if you are not, then turn from sin, repent, confess, and receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and begin to enjoy this great “walk” with God. This “walk” has benefits now and through eternity. Saints, let us all “walk” with God in 2017.

What is that aroma? Can you smell it? No, I’m not talking about the smoke that’s in the air. I’m talking about that nice, sweet smelling aroma.  Oh yes, it must be turkey or chicken & dressing.  It’s probably some ham, turnip greens, macaroni & cheese, and candied yams. It’s that pecan and sweet potato pie and various cakes.  Are you hungry yet? Thanksgiving is definitely one of my favorite holidays.  It’s packed full of good eating and typically family gatherings. Oh yea, also a little afternoon football watching and napping.  Even more importantly Thanksgiving is a time to pause and reflect.  It’s a time to ponder alllllll of the many things that you and I have to be thankful for.  If you are born again, be grateful that you are redeemed, saved by the blood of the Lamb, rescued from the wrath of God.  Be thankful that you can have daily communion with God.  Be thankful that you can abide in Jesus.  Be thankful that you are indwelt by and filled with the Holy Spirit.  Reflect on those truths for a moment.  Yes, we have much to be thankful for.  Also, we have the opportunity to tell others about our Jesus.  So, this Thanksgiving season be sure to share with family and others the love of Christ that abides in you.  Be thankful and enjoy the Lord this week as He continues to bless you.  I’ll leave you with these 2 verses: 
1 Chronicles 16:34, “Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.”
1 Thessalonians 5:18, “In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
