Jeremiah 6:16 “Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.”God was calling Israel to return to him, but they would not listen. This is the sad reoccurring theme of the Old Testament; God’s people leaving what they have been taught for a strange god. This has not changed in our time. The church goes after everything but Christ and his glory. It would seem that today’s church sees it’s job as keeping our kids busy, entertaining the adults, and making friends with the world. This is far from the “Old Paths”.These new methods are sure keep us running from one place to the other, but what we really need is “rest for our souls”. The only way for us to be at peace with God is to be serving Him. In order to serve him we must recognize he’s in charge. The church service must be all about him. The message must be all about him. The music must be all about him. We can’t put our own personal spin on a service that belongs to God. Our God is a jealous God (EX 34:14).
At LCBC we are seeking the “old paths”. We want God to be pleased with the fellowship we have here. We see no biblical reason to change what has been working for centuries. We don’t claim to be perfect or to have all the answers; just a firm conviction that the old paths are the good way. I would love for you to come to an experience any of our weekly services and find rest for your soul.
Love in Christ, Pastor Harold
