Sisters and Brothers in Christ, Our Rock and Foundation,
In Colossians 2:5 and 3:1-2 we are reassured that our connection to our Beloved Creator and His Church here on Earth is far greater than than any physical distance or separation.
"For though I am absent from you in body, I am present with you in spirit and delight to see how disciplined you are and how firm your faith in Christ is." Colossians 2:5
"Since you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things." Colossians 3:1-2
We are connected in spirit when we worship together. The Lord is with us, and He knows our hearts. Our Savior's Unending Compassion draws us close as a family of believers; our prayers ring out in unison, ever praising Our Redeemer. We are His portion, and He is our eternal prize.
O Emmanuel, our hearts leap in joy to call out Your Holy and Precious Name!
