Zephaniah 3:17 (NLT)
"For the Lord your God is living among you.
      He is a mighty savior.
   He will take delight in you with gladness.
      With his love, he will calm all your fears.
      He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.”
Hi Friends,

Yup, it's true!  God wants to have an intimate love connection with YOU! He wants to have a personal relationship with you and He wants to be involved in all the details of your life!
What He wants you to know more than anything else is that at the end of the day, at the end of your life, all that REALLY matters IS relationships! Your relationship with God and your relationships with others is all that really matters! The career, the bank account status, the car you drive, your portfolio or list of vacations will mean nothing compared to the value of how well you loved God and others in this life!
That is the focus of our current message series called "Love at Last Sight!" We've all heard the expression that it was "Love at first sight!" But we've all experienced the reality that that kind of superficial love can be shallow and very short-lived.  How 'bout the idea of love at last sight? Was there love shown and expressed the last time we saw that person? Has our love grown stronger each time we see the people closest to us?
God wants us to learn to love unconditionally and deeply.  He wants us to learn to build life-long relationships that grow deeper and more loving with each passing day.  We're not just referring to romantic relationships, but all of our close, important relationships, and especially our relationship with God!
So come on and dive in!  We all need God's help in growing into more loving, kind people! This Sunday we will learn about the Art of Intentionality. And next Wednesday, Oct. 19th, we'll be starting a BRAND NEW 4-week Wed. night study on Love at Last Sight, Going deeper! (7-8:30pm at the Mosaic Cafe, 2481 Browncroft Blvd.) Everyone is WELCOME!!!

May the Lord bless you and keep you.

May the Lord make his face to shine upon you,
and be gracious to you.

May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you,
and give you peace.

Love in Christ Jesus,
Pastor Lin
