For my Farewell Message to our PVC family – I’m reaching way back to the very scripture I chose for my Ordination Service in 2 Corinthians 5:14-21. As a new believer, I was drawn to the amazing declaration that, “If anyone is in Christ, he is a New Creation.” I didn’t really understand the fullness of what that would mean for my life – but I knew I really wanted it! It would take me some years before I began to understand that the key to being a New Creation person was in the life-giving phrase “in Christ.” To be “in Christ” means that when we say Yes to Jesus we are united with Him in His death and resurrection! That means “the old has gone and the new has come!” It’s really true! “One died for all.” -Therefore – “We no longer live for ourselves but for Him who died and rose again!” Thank you PVC family for saying Yes to Jesus! Thank you for saying Yes to His Gospel! Hallelujah! Amen! ~ Pastor George
