Someone to Believe In

Last Sunday we honored our high school and college graduates in our morning service.  Eighteen young men and women will be entering college or pursuing a career now that they have graduated from high school, and they need our prayers.

I expressed my concern for them as I challenged them from God's Word to trust in Christ as the anchor for their future. We live in such a confusing and chaotic world, and our young people who are stepping on college campuses for the first time are very vulnerable to the cultural climate they are about to enter.  The anti-Christian bias and liberal mindset of many college professors will challenge our young people to reject the core beliefs and foundations of their faith.

Jesus spoke to His disciples in John 14 and told them not to be troubled about their circumstances or environment but trust in Him. He is the way, the truth and the life. Trust in Christ and faith in His Word will navigate these young people through the perilous landscape of a worldly culture. Pray that our young college and career students will stand firm in their faith in Christ and be the overcomers that Christ will reward one day.

Pathway to Greatness

Great churches do not happen by accident--they are a result of the Spirit of God working in a church body. Paul referenced the churches of Macedonia in 2nd Corinthians 8, when he gave praise to God that He had poured His grace out on them. Paul was giving God glory for what was happening in the churches of Macedonia and for the wonderful works that were being done by the people in their churches.

I hope you will join with me and pray for God to pour His grace out on our church here at Wilmer. Pray that God’s power and Spirit would be free to operate among us and the works produced by the Holy Spirit would be evident to all those who live in the surrounding areas. When the grace of God is working in the lives of believers, unity, peace and joy develop among the believers in the church. There is a sense of belonging to Christ and to each other. There is a desire to want to do something for God and to be used by Him.

A great church is a giving church, and God’s grace is what motivates us to be willing to give. Giving ourselves completely to God is the challenge for every believer. The greatest work in all the world is the Lord’s work, and there is no greater joy than to be actively involved in doing the Lord’s work.
