Pastor's Corner

"If anyone is thirsty, let them come to me and drink.
Out of the believer's heart will come streams of living waters "
(John 7:27, 38)

November is a special month. It is special because it is when we set aside a day for thanksgiving. Centuries ago our ancestors suffered hardships in order to live in this land and worship God freely. They took time to spend a day praising God and being thankful for all their blessings. For over 245 years the church of Presbyterian congregation of Connecticut Farms has been giving thanks to God.

Now more than ever we are aware of the blessings we have in our families, our friends, our homes, our food, our good health, our church community and our freedom of worship. It is a time thank God for the living water of Christ that has poured over our lives and renewed us, washed us and refreshed us.

We are like a tree by the river that never dries up. The mercies of God are always present - our lives are safe in God.

Streams of living water. That's what Jesus offers us, a faith that is strong and active, a life that is steady and true. It's the kind of life that God wants us to live and it's the kind of life available to those who live by streams of living water.

Streams of living water - that's what Jesus offers us today - streams of living water. There is a source of blessing in our world today. There is hope for every living thing, and it is faith in Christ Jesus.

It is the living water he offers us. But we must send out our roots. We must risk and take God at God's word. We must say, "Lord, I want that water. God, I want to drink."

Friends, it's time for us to take our faith seriously. It is time for us to dedicate ourselves to deepening our faith. It is time to send down our roots and it is time to get passionate about our faith.

Isaiah says, "Ho everyone who thirst, come to the waters." Jesus says to us, "If anyone is thirsty, let them come to me and drink. Out of the believer's heart will come streams of living waters".

Jesus offers streams of living water that bring us blessings and peace to quench our thirst, streams of living water that call us to service, streams of living water call us to commitment.

In Christ's Love,
