Sam & Ruby Yoder
Ordained as an Assistant Pastor in 2005, and as Lead Pastor in March of 2015. Sam & Ruby were married in 1990, and are blessed with 5 children.
As I sit and ponder on the present, my mind goes to Paul’s words in II Corinthians 4:16 “For this cause (the cause of Christ) we faint not, but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.”
Renewing our inward man, day by day, is a challenge for all of us, including myself! Many people over-exaggerate yesterday, overestimate tomorrow and underestimate today.
Begin today by renewing your inner man with God’s Word! Today is the most important day of your life, yesterday is past, it’s gone forever you cannot change it or go back to it, but you can learn from it, and improve to by what you’ve learned, Today is what God has entrusted to us, let’s use all our gifts and abilities God has given us to impact people’s lives and bring honor and glory to God.
In Ephesians 5:1 we are told to be followers or imitators of God. If all of us do our best today, to be imitators of God, we can have a positive impact on our families, clients, and associates, or whoever we rub shoulders with. Then we can look back at the end of the day with satisfaction, at that which we have done, and look to improve our tomorrow, with God’s help! Always remember that our ultimate purpose in whatever we do is to bring honor and glory to God.

“The hand of our God has been upon us…” Ezra 8:22 Just as Ezra reminded the children of Israel as they were building the physical temple in Jerusalem for their worship and as identification of where they stood with God, there will be times of discouragement and opposition from the enemies without and within, Despite that, Israel preserved and continued to build, resulting in “celebration and rejoicing with great joy, for the Lord made them joyful” Ezra 6.
Likewise, we at Gospel Haven, we at Gospel Haven must recognize it is God’s grace, love, and mercy that has enabled us to enjoy koinonia (Greek word meaning fellowship, association, community, communion, joint participation) fellowship and worshipping together in peace and harmony, and also filling our hearts with great joy from the Lord.
Let’s continue “seeking of God the right way for us and for our families to live”…Ezra 8:21, using God’s Word as our guide “for these things are written that ye may believe, that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that believing ye might have life in his name”… John 20:31, and ultimately enjoying eternal life in heaven. – Pastor Dennis
