Pastor's Corner – August 30th, 2022
One of my Pastoral mentors told me several years ago, “be careful what you preach about because the Lord is certain to test you on the subject matter”.
Well, my mentor was right. Last Sunday, I preached on Romans 8:28.
It’s a familiar verse and the abbreviated paraphrase says, “…all things work together for good...”. You know the rest. Within a 48-hour period of time, Faith Church faced A/C problems on a catastrophic level during one of the hottest weekends of the year. Meanwhile, programmatically, we’re planning our first water baptism in our new location and we’ve launched a bold capital campaign. I must admit when I first learned of this devastating mechanical problem, I was crushed!
After some intense prayer, the Lord put me in check as He reminded me that our church building belongs to Him. He also reminded me that our ministry is His. He also reminded me that no matter how challenging the future appears, He is crafting it. He did not cause our A/C system to crash; however, He already has a solution to our problem and I can’t wait to see what it is.
With that said, follow our internal communications as it may be necessary to worship virtually this weekend, so stay tuned.
