Bethany Bullet - May 31, 2011

Recited &

In his first letter to the fledgling and scattered Christian Church, John (the apostle whom Jesus loved) told his readers to, “Remain in Christ as they have been taught.” In other words, John encouraged the church to Hold Eternity As Recited & Taught in the Scriptures. The HEART of the Christian faith is to cling to Christ, the One whom the Word reveals to us. In other words we are called to Hold Eternity As Recited & Taught.

In John’s epistle, the word remain is an indicative present active verb, which means to remain is a continual state of being, resulting from who one is in Christ. What does that mean? Holding Eternity As Recited & Taught means that we continue to hear His Word recited and continue to be those instructed by Christ.

Long after our Parish Theme has been forgotten and those beautiful banners packed away we will continue to be a people who have a Heart like His as we Hold Eternity As Recited & Taught, or as we continue to gather to hear His Word and learn of Him and thus cling to Christ.

-Pastor Kevin Kritzer
