Enjoy The Ride


It seems our lives become more predictable as we get older.  The brazen free spirit of our youth begins to grow content with schedules, rituals and patterns.  Our comfort zone begins to expand to a point where we become hesitant to cultivate new relationships, try new things, and take greater risks.  While we become more comfortable in our daily routine, our world continues to change.  Days are becoming darker which provides a greater backdrop for us as believers to shine out the light of Jesus Christ.

[Matthew 5:14-16] “You are the light of the world. A city situated on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 No one lights a lamp and puts it under a basket, but rather on a lampstand, and it gives light for all who are in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before men, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.

In 2015 decide to break the cycle of complacency. Apathy has no place in the world of sharing the gospel.  When we have an opportunity to speak for Christ we should speak, stand when we can stand, confess our sin rather than manage it and love others as Jesus loves us.  May we not spend another year going through the same routine! Look for where God is working, be obedient and enjoy the ride!

In Him,

Pastor James

This ordinance is not for everyone.  This is only to be taken by those who are believers and accepted Jesus as their ultimate forgiver and leader.  To partake in this service in an unworthy state is sin. 1 Corinthians 11:27 (NLT) 27 So anyone who eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord unworthily is guilty of s
