I’ve come to realize and accept that I’m not much of a blogger. Now, that may be “not so bad” after all, so before you form an opinion – allow me to digress. I’m not going to be one to waste your time on seemingly “empty” blogs, posts, and information. You and I both get enough of that each and every day. The last thing anyone needs is, as I have recently seen posted and now quote: “a lot more bunch of nothing.” Catch my drift?
Many people have a lot going on these days. Sometimes that equates to a lot of “stuff” – in other instances it equates to a lot of “nothingness.” But at the end of the day, only we (and I mean we, as individuals) are the ones that will have to reconcile our usage of time to God. And that is both healthy and a reality, because He has given it to us and it only makes sense that one day (on that day) we will give an account. We are to be good stewards of everything God has created and given us. It is my sincere and authentic prayer that in the body of Christ, we continue to recognize, accept, and adopt this truth and live it fully in our daily lives.
This Sunday, we kick-off a new series. I am not a “series” guy (normally). Not that that is either good or bad, right or wrong – I’m just putting that out there. But for as long as God desires, we will be in the Apostle Paul’s Letter to the Colossians. We will journey through the letter together and we will expect God to reveal His truth, hope, and encouragment to our hearts. This series is titled, “Livin’ the Life” – and that is His title, not mine. I really am excited about this special season coming up, and I am asking for your prayers. Please pray that we will enter into it with the right disposition, with a hunger and a thirst, and with open hearts. Pray for me, please – that the way I communicate and share would not cause anyone to stumble. Pray for those who are in need of an encouraging, challenging, and godly Word at this point in their lives (not that we should ever be out of need) – but pray they will be present and committed to go on this journey with us. And pray for those who need to press on to maturity in faith. Please pray, and then, pray some more.
May our Lord and Savior bless you, and may His peace and joy consume us as we embark. You are loved…
