Sept 26th, 2021 – Guest Pastor Eddie Smith explains how easy it is for us to miss Jesus, the greatest gift ever given to us. With so much noise in our daily lives, the message of Christ is but a whisper. We toil away endlessly for our possessions and value things that end the end will get us no closer to the everlasting life that is God’s promise to us. We don’t acknowledge our shortcomings, our failures, or sins and we don’t approach the altar with humility knowing that we are flawed. Instead we measure ourselves against the canvas of what the world values. And like the rich man in today’s scripture, we go away sad because we are not willing or able to release ourselves from our worldly successes.
