A Message from the Pastor

Both students and parents have their mind on the ending of school for another school year. In just a few weeks, school will be out for the summer. Surely this is a joyous time for students and teachers alike. I am reminded of a passage in the Bible which states, “Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster” (Galatians 3:24-25). The law was our school master to bring us to salvation in Jesus Christ. Of this the Apostle Paul wrote, “Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin” (Romans 3:20). As our school master, the law taught us we were sinners in need of salvation. The law taught us we were lost sinners. But by faith we believed that Jesus died on the cross for sinners – that Jesus died on the cross for us. Through faith in Jesus Christ we were saved. Thank God that for those who by faith have trusted Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour, School is Out!
