Happy Birthday, NewLife! Sunday was a very special day of celebrating God’s faithfulness for 25 years! We looked at 1 Thessalonians 5:24 as part of our celebration day. It reads, “He who calls you is faithful; He will surely do it.” There were three parts that we looked at:
He is the One who calls us to Himself and to join Him in working on His plans. Then, He is faithful, which means we can depend on Him that His call is real and the plans He has for us are part of His bigger mission in the world. But, if it stopped then, there would be something missing, which would be the action of the Lord God accomplishing what He proposed to do in His call. It almost sounds like circular thinking but it really is showing the interdependence of these three aspects. If He calls, He’s faithful both to His call and to accomplish why He called us, all of which means we need to walk with Him in each of these three aspects. And, if He calls, we must listen! Our NewLife family listened 25 years ago and began a huge faith journey which we continue to be a part of now! It’s just as important that we listen to Him and continue to walk in the call that He has on each of our lives and for us as a church now as it was then!
Thanks for being on this journey with Jesus and one another!
Let’s see what He has next for us!
P.S. We will begin our walk through the New Testament on Sunday with the book of Matthew. I invite you to begin reading Matthew for our time on Sunday.
