To Live is Christ

To Live is Christ

For a few weeks now, through the summer heat and humidity, and all the unique, seasonal challenges that the summer brings, God has been speaking loudly. It really began the week of July 4th and has seemingly continued each day since. What is very interesting, and often consistent in how God works, is that He shows up, speaks, and reveals in the seasons and times when we least expect.

The summer. A time when school is out. People are traveling and on vacation. Families and friends are visiting. The water is a great getaway. A somewhat slower schedule is often welcomed. And then, perhaps when we may not expect it: God shows up, He speaks, and He gets our attention. Not saying He can’t when we are physically exhausted, overloaded, or under pressure; but rather, I sense His unbelievable patience waits until He can get through to us, so that we hear/receive more clearly.

This is what I feel going into this Series: “To Live is Christ.” It has been curating now for a while, week in and week out. God knows what He is doing, all the time. His ways are far better than my ways; His plan is far better than my plans. I say all of this, to make this point:

This Series belongs to Him!
It is surely a God-ordained, Jesus-led, Spirit-filled journey
that will, with His guidance, lead us into more intimate
relationship with Him.

I would like to encourage you and invite you to join us. Consider that a heartfelt invitation. More than anything, I feel it will delight the heart of God and be a beacon of hope to you, in your life right now. It begins this Sunday 8/4/19 @ 10 am and will continue for several weeks.

I hope you will come alongside us for “To live is Christ.” Remember, the journey is the destination. Blessings and peace to you and yours. Hope to see you Sunday!
