“There is No Care like God’s Care” – April 1st, 2020

“There is No Care like God’s Care” – April 1st, 2020

Dear Church Family, One of the challenges of the Christian life is waiting on the Lord. That challenge is certainly seen in our current pandemic. People who are accustomed to being on the go most of the time are being forced to slow down, focus on spiritual things, and wait until life returns to normal.  Some of my favorite verses in the Bible are about waiting on the Lord. Here are two of them. “Wait on the Lord;  be of good courage, and He will strengthen your heart; Wait I say, on the Lord!” Psalm 27:14. “ The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the soul that seeks Him. It is good that one should hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord,” Lamentations 3:26. God promises to strengthen our hearts and to be good to us if we wait on Him.  Waiting on the Lord is always worth the wait. Slow down, enjoy your family, but especially enjoy your God!

“The Path to Victory in a Crisis” – March 25th, 2020

“The Path to Victory in a Crisis” – March 25th, 2020

Dear Church Family, This will be the first devotional sent to you in light of the coronavirus pandemic. In Psalm 29:2 we read, “ Give unto the Lord the glory due to His name: Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.” We don’t often think of holiness as being something that is beautiful. True holiness is extremely attractive. Jesus is perfectly holy and people were attracted to Him like a magnet. God is committed to our holiness. He wants the bride of Christ to be “without spot or wrinkle,” Ephesians 5:27. One of God’s favorite tools is trials and uncertainties that show us our imperfections and drive us to Him. Let the Lord use the current trials to make you more holy and increasingly beautiful to Himself and others. Since the lift of the shutdown does not appear to be just around the corner, Canton Grace is suspending all Sunday and Wednesday services until further notice. In other words, we will contact you when we can meet together again in person. In the meantime, we will continue to serve you via the internet on Facebook Live on Sunday mornings at 11:00. The Sunday services will be posted on our church website, cantongbc.org, and we are connecting small groups via various platforms. You are loved and prayed for. God bless you and have a great day!
