God's service plan for you


Church Family,

A common question that many Christians wrestle with is, why doesn’t God allow me to do ____________? I think this happens a lot with ministries within the church. You may want and feel able to do a certain ministry, but it never works out for you to.

Mark 5:18-20 As he was getting into the boat, the man who had been possessed with demons begged him that he might be with him. 19And he did not permit him but said to him, “Go home to your friends and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.” 20And he went away and began to proclaim in the Decapolis how much Jesus had done for him, and everyone marveled.

This man wasn’t allowed to go with Jesus. What may explain this is a church history story that recalls how the Christians when fleeing Jerusalem because the Romans were burning it down. The story says that they came to this area and found that there were churches already established and believers that were willing to take them in and help them out.

Now only God really knows why He wouldn’t allow the man to go with Him, but it helps us to trust that God’s plan is greater than ours and many times is thinking way in the future.

Can I encourage you today to pray about how you can serve the Lord with gladness? Ask the Lord to show you the full power of the gospel and how where you are serving best fits His eternal plans.

Reminders:

  1. August 9th-11th Family Summer Camp at Camp Pinehill. There will be an important meeting this Sunday after the morning service about this.

Love, Serve, Go
