Words of LifeÂ for this week are:
Email or call me and let me know (David@tigardcovenant.comÂ (503) 639-3084). Â I really want to know. Â Each of you has a choice on whether you will take me up on my offer. Â You can call or email me and let me know how you are doing. Â You can also see me in person. this Sunday, at Tigard Covenant Church(TCC), and also let me know how things are going in your life. Â You have a CHOICE on whether or not you respond. Â I will delve into the subject ofchoiceÂ this Sunday in my talk at TCC at10am. Â We have all been given the right to respond and choose by God Himself. Â He created each of us with freewill or choice. Â We can choose whether we want to get married or not. Â We can decide whether we go to one college or another. Â We can choose whether we will follow and serve Jesus Christ or not. Â Jonah had a choice when God summoned him to go and speak to the nation of Nineveh. Â He chose not to obey God. Â Sometimes we have a rationale when we make our decisions. Â Jonah had a decent rationale in his own mind. Â He didnâ€™t want to go because he knew God was a merciful God and that if the people in Nineveh repented, God would have mercy on them. Â Jonah was not as merciful as God and he wanted this foreign nation to perish. Â Do you and I care about the people of the world that are misguided and are committing acts of indecency. Â Jonah didnâ€™t care and sometimes we donâ€™t care. Â We have a choice in the matter. Â Let me appeal to your conscience and your heart. Â Please reconsider. Â Letâ€™s care for those around us who are making poor choices. Â Letâ€™s show them weÂ choose to careÂ andÂ loveÂ them.
God bless you,
Pastor David Greenidge
