ABOUT OUR PASTORS

From the Pastor's Desk

Pastor Bobby has been an ordained pastor for 30 years. He holds three degrees: Bachelor of Science; Masters of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry. He is also a certified therapist by the Transactional Association of America with emphasis in Gestalt Psychology.

Pastor’s favorite Bible verse is Romans 8:28, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him (God) and are called according to his purpose.” That does not mean everything that happens to us is good, but that God will cause good go come in the midst of trials and tribulations. We don’t know how much we need Christ until we realize Christ is all we really have. Everything else will pass, including us.One of my favorite Biblical characters is Joseph; husband of Mary and step-father of Jesus. Why step-father? Because God the Father is Jesus birth father.

Joseph essentially adopted Jesus. Joseph died at an early age and never sought any recognition for raising Jesus. Like Joseph, Jesus became a carpenter who constructed everything from plows to buildings. Joseph fulfilled God’s purpose on this earth and then he was no more on this earth. Joseph’s humility and faithfulness is a prime witness to all men who want to  be God’s servant.

Elizabeth Lutheran Church is a faithful group of disciples. Yet, there are numerous blessings in store for this congregation that we aren’t even sure of. We are already what God called us to be, but there is so much more God has in store for us in the future. “Where there is no vision, the people perish…,” Proverbs 29:18. Helen Keller said, “The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.” We are in the process of discerning God’s vision for the people of God in this place. This exciting time in the life of Elizabeth Lutheran will render us closer to God and more faithful in following our Lord, Jesus.

The only place Elizabeth Lutheran Church has not been is in the future. How wonderful to know God is in the middle of all we will be doing in and by the power of God Almighty. The only thing that can hinder us is ourselves and Satan would love that. My wife has a T-Shirt with the saying, “Not Today Satan.” So it is and so it shall be.

May God Bless You and Yours,

pastor
