WORDS FROM THE PASTOR
Good Evening Everyone: Just to let everyone know that we put 7 hours of driving after church and 15 hours of driving today. We arrived here at 7pm so you know what time I got up.
Thank you all for praying for a safe and uneventful drive and it was just that. Saw extensive frost in the mountians and some very fluffy snow on cars at another place in the mountians.
Nice to be here but I will be thinking of all of you while we are here. Keep me up to date on what’s happening with you.
We all have dreams but do we all have the goals that get us to making those dreams a reality. It’s true in everything we would like to accomplish. I have been ready two books of late. One is called ‘Finishing Well’ and the other is ‘Unfinished’
They both dance around the idea that not only do we have things to do for God but we need to listen to God’s calling on our lives. Our churches are full of people who have good intentions about making a change in this world. This gets us to the point of doing what God intended us to do.
The biggest problem is, people need to step up and make things happen. It’s no more thinking about doing something, it’s time to plan. As you heard yesterday, Phillip had a keen ear for listening to God. Our church is full of individuals who not only have the skills but also abilities to do things that impact the churches future here in Milton.
So, what do we do? Everyone needs to find a place to get your hands dirty – Today! Find out what your dream for Christ is, set some goals and work to achieve it all for Him.
