I can’t believe it is July already, where is the summer going? We had plans and things to do as a family for this summer. Things that were planned for months and months, which suddenly come and go or are just around the corner. I don’t know about you but after the summer I’m always left with memories and a longing to start planning again for next year.
A few weeks ago I shared a message called “Nothing New” where Solomon says: What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun. –Eccl. 1:9
Solomon reminds us that outside of God nothing is new in this world; it is a repeating cycle that never ends or satisfies. But Paul reminds us that in Christ all things are made new and I am convinced that in Christ, life can be enjoyed to the fullest. So no matter how your summer is going if you allow Jesus to take full control of your life, you will be satisfied and complete.
I encourage you to keep growing in faith, to trust on God’s promises, and to allow the Holy Spirit to guide your life every single day. When we live for him, memories become proof of God’s faithfulness and not regrets of disappointments; He will satisfy your life.
I hope to see you this weekend at church.
Today is your last chance to buy a t-shirt and support our fundraiser to replace our fire alarm system. The new system is already installed and running. And even though we have not reached our goal yet, we believe God will supply for this need. Would you please consider making a donation or buying more shirts and supporting this cause? We know that we will reach our goal and you can be part of it. Thank you to all of you who have ordered a t-shirt and/or made a donation, God will honor your commitment to the church.
Join us on Saturday, July 22nd for a night of ministry at The Gathering Church. You don't want to miss this time of worship and fellowship. Childcare for babies and toddlers will be provided. Older kids are encouraged to experience the worship service with their parents. We hope to see you there!
