"Live Each Day as In the Sight of God"

"We cannot afford to allow our minds to be diverted from Jesus and the preparation of soul which we must have in order to meet Him in peace.... In Christ's stead, I beseech you to pray as you never prayed before, to seek earnestly for faith and love, that seem to be almost banished from the earth. Live each day as in the sight of God.... ." OHC 360.2

My heart says of you, “Seek his face!”
Your face, Lord, I will seek.

Psalm 27:8

HABITS - The "Secret Sauce"

Habits are behaviors, repeated regularly, that occur without thinking. Why are habits so significant?
An old saying expresses it well: “Sow an act and reap a habit; sow a habit and reap a character.” Character arises from habits. Habits are important because character is important.
The entire great controversy is about the character of God. “Satan’s efforts [have been] to misinterpret the character of God, to cause men to cherish a false conception of the Creator” (The Great Controversy, Introduction). Almost all the world’s religions distort God’s character in some form or another. Think about that. 


HABITS are important because
  character is important.              


The church is God’s “advertising agency,” representing God’s true character to the universe! Ellen White wrote, “There is nothing that the Savior desires so much as agents who will represent to the world His spirit and His character” (The Acts of the Apostles, 600). God is love—not some detached or legalistic autocrat.
A church’s habits determine whether or not it accurately reflects God’s character of love. Like people, some churches are friendly or stand-offish, jovial or stern, approachable or cold, and so on. A perceptive visitor can sense, before too long, the extent to which the church reveals God’s true character.


         Even the plan of salvation, created before the
         foundation of the world, is a grand strategic plan.
         (Ephesians 1:4)

Global Youth Sabbath

March 20, 2021 was a high Sabbath in the Saint George Church. It was Youth Sabbath! 1 Timothy 4:12 admonishes..."Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity." Our youth set an example of willingness to serve whether in reading of Scripture, calling for the offering, musical selections or preaching the Word to God’s honor. These spokespersons for the Lord chose as their topics, The Love Of GodWhat Can I Do, and Stand. The congregation in attendance,  in person or by zoom, were blessed and uplifted by the thoughts shared. Also were they encouraged as our Pathfinders,The Bay Of Fundy Flyers, distributed GLOW tracts in the community of Saint George in the afternoon. "With such an army of workers as our youth, rightly trained, might furnish, how soon the message of a crucified, risen, and soon-coming Saviour might be carried to the whole world!" Education 271.2 Praise the Lord!
