Pastor Jim’s Message...

“Keep Calm and Carry On”

Greetings members and friends of Mount Olive,
“Keep Calm and Carry On” was the title for Thursday June 12th in the “Our Daily Bread” devotional booklet that Mount Olive makes available to the members and friends of the church. The reading reminded us that we are “servants of the God of heaven and earth,” and engaged in God’s work.

In addition, we know that Jesus promised to always be with us and it is His power working through us that enables us to do His work as members of Christ’s church. Pastor’s come and go throughout the life of a church and Mount Olive has had 18 different pastors throughout the years.

While pastoral changes are difficult, the church’s mission must go on. In the book of James chapter 1 we are told, “Be doers of the word, and not merely hearers…doers who act—they will be blessed in their doing.”

To that end, I am able to give you an update from my newsletter article last month in which I made an appeal for financial assistance to help a needy woman named Debbie who’d come to Mount Olive seeking help with her dental needs. She had gone to every agency and many of the churches in town but was unable to find anyone to help her. We were her last hope and we responded as the church, the Body of Christ. In Debbie’s behalf, I want to thank all those who stepped forward and made a financial contribution to help Debbie, including the Social Concerns committee.

Because of the donations received, Debbie has now had the teeth broken off below the gum line removed.

She is preparing for the removal of the rest of her teeth and then getting dentures. When all her dental work is completed Debbie has agreed to come and give her thanks to God and all those who helped her in her time of need. Until then please keep Debbie in your prayers and continue to be a church that seeks to serve others in need and thereby make a difference in the world in Jesus name. See you in church!

Pastor Matt’s Message…

Galatians 5:1 (For freedom Christ has set us free. Stand firm, therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.)

This month we celebrate the birthday of the United States of America. Flags fly more fervently it seems. Fireworks will light up the night sky. People walk with heads held high and a heightened sense of patriotism.

It is true that we are blessed to live, play, and worship in a nation that values freedom and the rule of law. We strive as a nation to a more perfect union, one where all people experience the blessings of liberty and justice.

But even with those heady ideals, we have fallen short many times as a nation. We are, after all, fallible human beings who are always tempted to put ourselves before others. We always must struggle against the tendency toward sin.

While the Declaration of Independence ignited a grand new experiment in the republic we now call the United States of America, there is a more important and long lasting freedom that we celebrate as Christians. It is our freedom in Christ.

Christ has set us free from the wages of our sin and given us new life in him. We do not submit ourselves to the yoke of our past sin. Rather, we look forward toward the future with hope because of the power of Jesus Christ.

This July 4th, Independence Day, celebrate the freedom we enjoy as a nation. Also celebrate the freedom we are given by the One who created the very ground we walk on. We are free indeed.

Out and about among the living, Pastor Matt
