Notes From the Pastor's Desk #notesfromthepastorsdesk
📖Acts 13:47 (ESV)
For so the Lord has commanded us, saying,
“‘I have made you a light for the Gentiles,
that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.’”
Happy New Year! This morning, I woke up with the question in my heart, "What will this year bring?" Then, I was convicted that it was the wrong question I was asking. The better questions are, "What will God do this year, and how can I be obedient in my participation for His will to be accomplished?" This scripture from Acts 13 demonstrates the answer to those questions. God has made us to be a light to this lost world so that salvation can be brought to the ends of the earth. We are Gospel-carrying messengers of His Son, Jesus Christ. We are to proclaim the Good News of Jesus so that others may be saved from sin and death and be made right with the living God! That’s what this new year will bring. That’s our purpose in 2024 until we breathe our last — to glorify Him by making disciples who, in turn, make other disciples of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
I am praying for you today and ask you to pray for me. Let’s pray that we are faithful at being the light God has called us to be in this ever-darkening world until He comes again.
🙏I'm praying for you always. ❤️
