Message: “If You Want to Be Perfect”
Sernon Notes: Pastor Stanley shared words for our consideration by using examples of his
students - in their desire for that higher grade.
He then shared the New Testament story of the rich man asking Jesus
what else he needed to do to to ensure a higher place in heaven.
Jesus knows our humanity. We can't be perfect but we can pursue our faith and we can do the same as Apostle Paul ("press on to the goal. . . ").

Blue Hymnal #90: “Room at the Cross for You” (Howard)
end of service
As this next week unfolds - remember. . .
We must be careful what we assume to be true in the lives of others.
We cannot assume that suffering is their own fault or a result of their sin,
because God may be working in ways we know nothing about.
Pat answers and trite quotations say much less than empathetic silence and loving companionship.
Never underestimate how vulnerable we are during times of suffering and pain.
We must hold onto our faith even if there is no relief.
