Pastor's Message

Some scriptural messages are hard to absorb and understand. Some are easier to comprehend when you learn of the different culture or use of language at the time they were written. But sometimes I find I need a totally new perspective to help me grasp the message. Often Christian music helps me to look at things differently. The composers phrase things in a way that it deepens or fleshes out what I had taken from the scripture reading. Psalm 51:17 is one such verse “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.” In reflecting on this message of brokenness I have gained perspective from 2 song composers’ turn of a phrase. Matt Neely’s music gave me my first new way to look at brokenness and a recently released Matthew West song says it all to me now. Sunday I will share my meditations on brokenness but offer these words to you for your own meditations this week.
If grace is a kingdom
I've stopped at the gate
Thinking I don't deserve to pass through after all of the mistakes I've made
But I heard a whisper
As Heaven bent dow
Said, "Child, don't you know that the first will be last and the last get a crown?"
Now I'm just a beggar in the presence of a King
I wish I could bring You so much more
But if it's true You use broken things
Then here I am Lord, I am all Yours
The pages of history they tell me it's true
That it's never the perfect; it's always the ones with the scars that You use
It's the rebels and the prodigals; it's the humble and the weak
The misfit heroes You chose
Tell me there's hope for sinners like me
Grace is a kingdom
With gates open wide
There's seat at the table just waiting for you
So, come on inside

Peace and grace,
Gerry
