Good afternoon! Hope everyone is doing good and hopeful this dreary day. I believe one of the greatest blessings of following Christ is the joy and hope we find on days like today. You know those days. The list of things to do is greater than the time in the day, the conditions of the weather seem to make the list grow with each passing mile. The pressure and stress of life seem to make the good weather leave and the miserable weather linger. Days we want to end seem to be stuck as if we're Bill Murray in the movie Groundhog Day. But one great hope is that in the midst of that type of day, maybe today for you, there a joy and a hope of a new day that is coming. This present situation, stress or weather pattern can't overcome the fact that a new day is coming. What a day that shall be! Until then...we walk, we drive, we live and punch out all that's on our list. But as we do...we smile. If not outward, inward.
About doing....Andrew led our time together last night as we continued our series in the book of James. What does it look like when Faith and Life collide? Faith Works....we saw this so clearly last night as James addresses the reality that we cannot simply hear the Word only. We must DO the Word. What does this look like? What does this mean? That's what we discussed last night. I've attached the sermon for you below.
Let me say our REFUEL trips this year were incredible. My heart was so full seeing 60 students dive in, discuss and ultimately digest the Word of God. We began the work of learning valuable principles that will hopefully last for a long time. The purpose? So they may learn and know how to read the Bible for themselves. Such a huge thing for students to know and understand. Refuel helps this process and I couldn't be more excited about all we saw.
I believe that's it for this week.
So excited to play a small part in the discipleship process of your student. Know that we (the leaders and I) love your student and love the Lord. Our hope is to see them mature in Christ. To ultimately know Him and make Him known. It's why we do all we do.
Have a great day and don't forget to smile!
Why a blog?
A great way for parents and ministry to connect and continue the conversation of what's going on at The Rock.
