Valley News and Views O Page 7 March llth, 2010 The Pastor's Column Sin separates us from God. It also enslaves. Colossians 1:13 refers to the enslaving "power of darkness". Paul also speaks of the same in Ephesians 6:12 when writing of the principalities, powers, and the rulers of the darkness of this world, which are evil spirits intent upon keeping every human beginning in sin's grip until it destroys us eternally. The answer to our sin problem and its hold on us is not rehabilitation or resolutions to be better. We can change certain behaviors, but we have no ability to free ourselves from spiritual enslavement. To make matters worse, God's justice demands payment for our sins. There is both good news and bad news in this. The good news is that a price for redemption has been set. Before we move further let us note the definition of redemption, which is, "freedom by the payment of a price". The bad news is: the price is too high for anyone to pay, which effectively ensures continued enslavement. No amount of good works, money paid, or resolutions made can s.atisfy the righteous demands of the One whose law we have broken. There is, however, more 00emo- Citiz ', ,: ....... _* en ke, Pembma County Meals It is that time of year again- Flood Season. Potential flooding seems to be the main topic on all the news shows and in the newspapers. Agencies like ours that receive Federal Funding are being asked to share flood related information with our clients. Learn the flood warning system in your community. Identify and practice the safest route from your home to higher ground or a shelter. Keep a stock of food which requires little cooking and no refrigeration because gas and electric services may be disrupted. Keep a portable radio, emergency cooking equipment, and flashlights in working order. Make sure that you have charged batteries on hand for radios and flashlights. Keep first aid supplies and any prescribed medicines needed by members of your family on hand. Keep you automobile fueled. If electric power is cut off, filling stations may not be able to operate pumps for several days. If you are required to evacuate during the night, gas stations may not be open. Store drinking water in closed, clean containers in the event water service becomes interrupted. Keep materials like sandbags, plywood, plastic sheeting and lumber handy for emergency flood proofing. If you require assistance good news. When God saw that we could never pay the price required to free ourselves, He said, "I'll pay". It is here that Jesus comes into the picture. Because God so loved the world He gave his only begotten Son. Jesus came to earth for the express purpose of paying for our sins. The cost was His life and shed blood. On the Cross sin's demands were met. That is what Jesus was referring to when He uttered the words, "It is finished". Your freedom from sin can be gained by accepting Jesus' payment and giving Him all future control of your life. By pastor leroy aufenkamp leaving your home, do not drive or have no family to help you, please contact the city office or the senior center if you would need help in case of an emergency evacuation.
