Pastor’s Pen: April 21st

From the Pastor’s Pen: Over the course of our lifetime we will struggle and fight against many sins. Some we will overcome easily, while others will follow and haunt us for most of our lives. I believe for some of us, the struggle to maintain a good and godly attitude in all circumstances is a problem we don’t give much attention.
A bad attitude is always accompanied by a number of ungodly friends. Complaining, envy, jealousy, anger, just to name a few. It is a popular sin that gathers many others in its fellowship. The longer our bad attitude goes unchecked the more our sins multiply and the more our sins multiply the farther we get out of the will of God!
A bad attitude mars Christ likeness in us and robs us of our calling to encourage others.
Writing from a prison cell in Rome, the apostle Paul wrote about the attitude a Christian should have: “Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ ” (Philippians 1:27). He’s telling us that no matter what unexpected disruptions, frustrations, or difficulties come our way, we are to respond with a Christ-like attitude.
