This coming Sunday, I will be finishing my series on the book of 1 Thessalonians. I so looked forward to this series on this book and I have not been disappointed on a personal level. I have grown to love ministry and Jesus more as I studied these great words. I am completely in awe at how seriously these people took their Christianity. I am in complete awe at how Paul called them to trust God in all things. I want to be that person. I want to be serious about my faith and my service to Jesus. In the end, Paul calls them to trust. God is faithful, I should trust Him. He ends with these words.
"Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass." (1 Thessalonians 5:23-24).
As I trust Him personally, I am praying as to what God would have us do next. As I finish next week on this series, I need to be moving on to something else. I love planning and organizing. I love to looking and planning sermon series. And so this time of my calendar is really fun. We have Christmas and New Years and then on the 8th of January, we will be starting a short 6-week series on our Church. I will give more information in a few weeks on this, but I hope all those in and around CBC will be part of that.
And then . . . Well, you will have to wait to find out. But I will give you a hint: It is in the Old Testament. I would appreciate your prayers as I seek the Lord's face as to what we should study as a church. It's all good when we use the Scriptures. But I want to be strategic for our church at this time. So please pray with and for me.
