Thoughts from the Pastor
By now, I’m sure many of you have heard the rumors that change is in the air. In times like these, it is a natural human response to begin to ask questions and become emotionally affected by the uncertainty that can seem to be floating around. I would be lying if I told you that I didn’t have my own emotions involved in the tumult surrounding us at this very moment. However, what I do know is that God is good and that He has an extraordinary plan for those who follow Jesus just on the other side of the struggle. I am reminded of the Disciples huddling in the upper room just after Jesus’ death. Some of them were susceptible to sadness, some of them were susceptible to worry, and others even began to doubt whether they had in fact been following the Messiah at all. Yet, as we all know, when they emerged from that room, the Disciples led the charge of the greatest evangelistic movement ever in the history of humanity. Within days of the struggle and the uncertainty, thousands upon thousands of people were brought into the Kingdom of God. Through the witness and the Spirit working through the very men who were scared and worried about the change that they had just experienced, a new church and a new life was set ablaze. God is the same God today as that day, and I believe that He is ready to act in our lives in a similar way. So let us not dwell on the past or on the change, but rather let us look forward to the future, for if God is for us, then who can be against us!
Peace and Blessings, Travis
