Yesterday was a great day for my church. We welcomed a new pastor and his family to our congregation. He has a practice of getting out into the community for ministry, to reach those not otherwise touched by the church. He wants to lead our fellowship into ministry in a way that will really make a difference and there is great excitement about that. We feel and are blessed by God to have this new minister ready to work with and among us. God has a plan. I think he will soon begin to reveal to us the next step in this plan.
Are we ready? I think so. We've been praying and talking about this for weeks - months. We continue to talk about our strength and purpose - our redemption and righteousness - coming from God. We know anything we do that has any worth and merit will come from him and be done in his power.
I think there will be many things to write about in the coming weeks. It's time to roll up our sleeves and get to work.
What is it that you need to be doing? What opportunities is God placing before you? Are you ready? Let's be in prayer together and be ready to serve him today.
This is the day that the Lord has made. Let's rejoice, be glad, and offer it to him as an act of sacrifice, praise, service and worship. Have a blessed day in Christ today.
