Los Altos Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)

Comments

Wayne Hammar, Tres Rios Area Moderator, invites everyone to attend a listening conference to be hosted by West Mesa Christian Church on Saturday, February 9th. The session starts at 2:00 PM and should last 1½ to 2 hours.

The purpose of this listening conference is to gain input from Albuquerque Disciples as to how people feel the Tres Rios Area should plan to proceed into the Regional Restructure program. The more people and input the Tres Rios Area can have on this subject, the better able our Area will be to respond to the desires of people and churches in the Area to live into this new structure for the region. This includes any questions you might have about the restructure plan.
Looks like a wonderful celebration. Hope you do it again.

Do You Want To Be Excited and Thrilled Or Fed and Satisfied?

When we come to Galatians Chapter 5 and verse 1, we read further and deeper about our freedom in Christ. This is basically what Paul has been wrestling with in this profound, if not exciting, letter.
Some people like to be excited and thrilled when it comes to the Christian Faith - all the time - but there is a need for being serious and profound and biblically sound.

Those who like simply to receive the bread can disappear when there is no more bread. We learned some weeks ago in John Chapter 6 that Jesus is the bread.

What a day to preaching and teaching on freedom - when so many people look for freedom and peace - but we are reading of that freedom which comes from Jesus Christ - and speaking of that peace which comes only from Jesus Christ.

We can experience this - even when sadness seeks to imprison us - or when demons attempt to enslave us - or when men try to limit or restrain us.

"It is for freedom that Christ has set us free."

Jesus does not set us free so that we will become slaves to surrounding situations. Jesus does not set us free for us only to revert back to norm - to weak and miserable principles, and religious rules and regulations.

Freedom is one of the hardest things to get - and one of the easiest things to lose!

The world is crying out for freedom - I want to be free to do what I like. That is not freedom - that is slavery. Many want freedom of speech - freedom of thought - freedom to express ourselves - freedom from want - freedom from poverty or financial restraints - freedom from ignorance - freedom for political action - and even freedom from GOD!

Jesus enjoyed perfect freedom - and yet He says - "the Father who sent Me commanded Me what to say and how to say it" – John Chapter 12 verse 49. What to say and how to say it - "I know what You want Me to say to those people, but Father show Me how You want it said. What is the tone to be? How is it to sound?"

That is perfect freedom - when our liberty is under the total control of our gracious and loving God - and the Power of the Holy Spirit.

Real freedom - is not to do what I want - but to be set free from "me" - to be set free from SELF - to do what Jesus wants me to do.

We can be in chains to self - but Jesus sets us free - releases us - delivers us - to be what God would have us be.

In Galatians, Paul is arguing for and pleading for the integrity of the gospel of Jesus Christ - the Good News of Jesus Christ, the Saviour, the Redeemer, the Lord, the King.

That reminds us of the uniqueness of Jesus Christ. Speaking of the uniqueness of Jesus Christ in these present times is becoming increasingly dangerous. It was in the first Century, and it is becoming more so in the twenty first Century. How do you stand with regard to the reality?

"Almighty God, our loving heavenly Father, help us to stand firm and strong in these days, when there are pressures and stresses to compromise, and give in here and give in there." Amen.

(This week's "Word from Scotland" - previous articles may be read at Studylight.org and liveasif.org - in the 'Archives' section - every prayerful blessing.)
The Thursday Night Bible Study group read the crucifixion story from all four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) last night and compared the contents of each with much discussion and fellowship. WOW, what an eye opener.

Helping people Discover and Develop their relationship with God through Worship, Study, and Ministry. Disciples of Christ

Thank you, Rev. Amy Hirsch for your sermon on November 22, 2020!

[11/19/20]   The question has been asked in regards to the State’s new shelter in place orders about being able to have and attend services. Based on the current orders, we can remain open and we do intend to remain open. As long as the congregation is willing to come to church, our doors will be open until we can’t.

We are required to inform you that wearing a mask is not optional. The fine for someone not wearing a mask is $100 for the individual, but $5000 for the church. This not a fine we can afford, so please continue to wear a mask while attending services.

The State has requested we try to shift from in-person services to virtual services. This is something we are exploring. We are aware that it may be difficult for many members of the congregation who are not as comfortable with electronics as others. That being said, we do still want to try to expand our online presence so that services can be seen here on Facebook, and potentially Zoom, Google Meet, and/or YouTube. We appreciate your patience while we investigate the best way for us to make services available online.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to the Board if you have any questions or concerns.
