Remember that time you were scurrying around to get things in order for Christmas? What feels like yesterday has been replaced with baseball practice and tennis matches and soccer and ......... The "old folks" used to tell us that time seemed to move quicker with age, to which I laughed or maybe begged that it would indeed move quicker. Now I find myself asking for it to slow down. Paul knew the value of time and using it wisely. For that reason he encourages us to "redeem the time" in Ephesians 5:16. Don't put off, don't forget to love those around you Don't forget to stop as you rush. Don't forget to love as you discipline. Don't forget to squeeze as you hug. James would remind us that life is nothing more than a vapor. In light of this...redeem the time. Yes, Christmas will be here in 2-3 weeks I suppose. But don't allow 11 months to slip by without having invested in the things that should matter most. In other words, redeem the time. And Merry Christmas!
Smaller crowd than usual last night. We typically have many of our students participating in spring sports and we also know of many who are sick. So praying for those students in the midst of tryouts and for those dealing with sickness!
Last night we continued our series in James. Having dealt with the reality that we are to be DOERS of the Word as well as HEARERS of the Word, James begins what will be examples of what it looks like to "DO THE WORD." Andrew's sermon is attached below for you to take a peek at where we've been.
Just a few things for you to take note of as we make the push to Spring/Summer.
That's it for this week!
Love you all and so thankful we get to serve and live with such a great group of parents!
Why a blog?
A great way for parents and ministry to connect and continue the conversation of what's going on at The Rock.
