When life is in turmoil and the wicked “cast up mire and dirt,” when it seems like the foundations are destroyed, hold to the constant, the first things of the faith, the essence of discipleship. Hold first and foremost to Him who is “the same yesterday, today, and forever.” In particular, hold fast to the dying and rising of Jesus Christ, for this is what defines us now and forever. We die with him that we may live and reign with him. Whatever else God may be doing in the world, whatever he calls us to do or to endure, this is our path.
From the Pastor's Desk
Our desire to be practical, to know how to live in our particular times, should never lead us away from Jesus Christ. Our life, life itself, is not about what we can accomplish and figure out. It is about Christ’s accomplishment and how he can be glorified by building upon him. Your list of achievements will be burned up as utterly worthless unless they were drawn from the Savior. All things were made by him and for him. He must have the preeminence, the first and sole place, in all things.
