Let's Shine Together!

Let's Shine Together!

Good day everyone!

I thought I would jump in and take a stab at our new church blog to help get the ball rolling. I'm very excited that we already have had a member come forward and submit some writings they have done for us to post here!

While this may be easier than publicly sharing a testimony for some, it may be totally outside of their element for others. In either case this is one more medium for us as a local and a global church to share ideas, devotions, questions, and ultimately our testimonies with one another. It is another way for us to lift up and challenge each other everyday!

I want to encourage all of you to think, "How can I be a witness today?" If it is by sending me a blog post to add here, great! If it is by calling and checking on someone you have been praying for, great! If it is to go out and serve people, great! The important thing is that YOU DO IT!

All too often we come up with great ideas, feel a burden, or see a need and slowly talk ourselves out of action. We think of all the ways something can go wrong or how hard it is going to be, and then we just tend to bury what God is trying to bring to the surface. The world we live in needs Jesus Christ! People everywhere need to be shown their own dignity and worth. They need to be shown compassion and care. They need to see what a life transformed by God looks like!

Take a leap with me today! Whatever God is calling you do, DO IT! If you don't feel something specific, (it's OK we all feel this way sometimes) then get up and DO SOMETHING! God is not going to let his word come back void. Sow the seed and prayerfully watch God work.

Matthew 5:16 "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."

Let's shine the light together folks! We are on clock, and there is no excuse for us not giving it all we have until the buzzer!
