For the past two weeks, God has been pouring out on us. There is evidence of revival. I sense God readying us for Equip, but also just taking us deeper in the things of God.
I have asked the Lord’s help for us to steward well the move of His Spirit so that He can trust us with more. I do believe there is some spiritual maturity that needs to be developed in such a time. We need to be careful that we don’t put God in a box, thinking “Wow last week God moved, and this week nothing happened. What did we do wrong? Why did God withdraw from us?” Such thinking and such a question will foster discouragement.
We need to be mature enough in our own lives as well as in the life of the church to understand that even when “I can’t feel it He is working” (as in the song Waymaker). There are times we smell the flowers and eat the fruit when His presence is manifest. There are other times He feels hidden and quiet. I love smelling the flowers, but in every move of God there is also a time when the Spirit starts tilling the ground to push down roots. When he does it is not as fun as the flowers and the fruit, but there can be no flower or fruit in the future if roots do not develop in us.
So, know the move of God will never look the same from week to week….sometimes it will be a great celebration, sometimes it will be in quiet….it is still God who is at work within us to bring to pass His blessing and favor. So church, let’s learn to celebrate the ebb and flow and celebrate the roots as much as we celebrate the flowers.
See you this coming weekend.
Meet the Missionaries
Randy and Shelley Marshall serve with One Mission Society in Kyiv, Ukraine. Their main focus is disciple-making, and they use English to serve Ukrainians and to make new contacts. They organize English camps during the summer for university students and offer weekly English clubs at a Kyiv university. For students or adults of any age who become spiritually interested, they offer Discovery Bible Studies to help them investigate the claims of Jesus, and they gather those who want to follow him into worshiping home groups called Life Groups. Their goal is to see the existing network of Life Groups grow and multiply as Ukrainians reach their friends and families with the Good News.
On October 1 & 2 Randy and Shelly Marshal will be joining us for the weekend services. Saturday morning we will be having a 9:30 continental breakfast reception. If you would like to join us, RSVP by calling 684-7511.
