Quartzsite First Assembly

 
      A Message From Pastor Bruce 
 
 
 
I would like to welcome you to our very unique town of Quartzsite, Arizona. Here you will find exciting places to explore and places to eat. There are local businesses and seasonal vendors from which to shop for that special item for you or a loved one - including tons of rocks!! 
 
As the Pastor of the First Assembly of God Church, I would like to personally invite you to one of our services. We’d like to get to know you, and you to know us. You will find us to be a friendly, loving church that believes the Bible to be the inspired, written word of God; that we are created to worship God in Spirit and in Truth and that we are to help those in need.
 
I look forward to meeting you sometime during your stay in Quartzsite.
 
God Bless,               
Pastor Bruce Swart

High Priest of Christmas

Read Hebrews 1:1 through 6:20

Singing Christmas carols about the Infant born in Bethlehem’s manger brings many warm memories and joy during stressful, hectic days of holiday preparation. Today’s passage takes the reader beyond those thoughts to the very purpose for Christmas.

For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin (Hebrews 4:15).

God’s plan for redemption required Jesus to enter the world and experience those things common to all people. He set aside His heavenly state to become a helpless infant, grow as a child, and experience all of the struggles that come with life. As a result of these experiences, He can empathize with the cares and weaknesses of life. These experiences make Him the perfect high priest who can intercede before God for His people. Remembering Christ as the high priest of Christmas helps bring focus to the many details and activities that can crowd out the purpose and joy of Christmas.

Thought for Today: Christ, the great high priest, stands as the reason for the Christmas season.

Quicklook: Hebrews 4:6–16
