October 26, 2014 Gentlemen: Monday evening, October 27th we will car pool from the church parking lot to Marvin Reinke's home north and west of Twin Falls. Pastor Sedlmayr began a Lutheran Hour study of Mormonism and we had so much conversation we didn't really complete the first lesson and Pastor wasn't allowed to stop when his time was up. I am sure the next gathering will be just as lively especially if more men show up for the video and the discussion. If you have any questions please let me know. Blessings. Mike Gibson Scentsy Fundraiser for the Child Development Center will be taking place through November 7. Stop by and check out all the great smelling Scentsy candles and etc. LWML and Outreach are joining forces to have an INGATHERING OF FOOD AND NEEDED PAPER SUPPLIES for Valley House. You may bring your items and put them in the blue barrel used for food gathering. If your paper supplies take lots of space, put them beside the barrel.

Paul wrote, “So whether we are at home or away, we make it our aim to please [the Lord]” (2 Corinthians 5:9). This was the aim of Paul’s life. His whole purpose in life was to live so that he would be pleasing to Christ. In view of God’s mercy and grace to us, we live to honor Him and serve others in His name. In the next verse, he extends this idea to include the scene of the last day when all people stand before the judgment seat of Christ. He wrote, “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil” (verse 10). We should have some serious concern when we realize that we are moving on to a judgment in which we must give an account to Christ of the deeds we have done while on earth. Let us make it our aim, whether in the body, or out of the body, to be pleasing to Christ in our day-to-day activities. Whether God gives us long or short lives, we are accountable to God for every act. So why did Paul feel that he must live to please Christ? What was the driving power of his life or what is it in our lives? Paul knew of Christ’s love for him and the understanding of that love compelled Paul to carry out his ministry. As John writes, “We love, because He first loved us” (1 John 4:19). Our love springs from the foundation of the divine love. Paul was driven by the understanding of the love of Jesus for Him. May God strengthen our faith that we, too, might begin to comprehend God’s great love for us shown in His Son and be likewise compelled to make every effort to please Him. The flowers today are given by Hank Mayland To God be the Glory!
