Welcome To Sherwood Baptist Church!

A Word From The Pastor

Dear Sherwood Family,

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

(2 Corinthians 5:17)

2022 is here! And with a new year comes the motivation to do things to better our lives at home, at work, and in the church. No matter where we might have fallen short in 2021, now there is a blank slate which comes with the changing of the calendar.

One area which I would like to see improved in my own life in 2022 is the time I invest in reflecting on the greatness and the grace of God. Far too often I find myself getting overwhelmed and distracted by the things of this world which are not eternal, and I need the frequent reminder to focus my thoughts on the Lord.

This passage above from 2 Corinthians is a good place to start. Just like the calendar has changed, so has my life been changed. Just like 2021 is gone forever, so is my identity without Christ gone forever. I have been born again, changed from the inside out by the power of God’s Holy Spirit! I am a new creation! And this is all because of God’s great mercy and grace.

Are you a new creation? Then let’s honor the Lord together by giving Him our very best in 2022.

Sherwood, let’s pray with urgency, live in faithfulness to God, and never stop building the Kingdom.

Bro. Robby
