God is at Work!
Henry Blackabee said it best in his famous Experiencing God studies, when he said, "God is always at work around us. We must find out where he is working and join Him." I'm finding that out to be true each and every day! God is constantly reminding me that the work I've been called to is His work and not mine. Philippians 1:6 states, "Being confident of this very thing that He who began a good work in you WILL COMPLETE IT [emphasis mine] until the day of Christ Jesus."
He is working in His church at Parkers Creek! We've seen numerous adults repenting of sin and surrendering to the Lordship of Christ. Since January, we've literally been experiencing a sovereign move of a holy God. He's at work on the T- ball team I'm coaching. I'm finding numerous opportunities to share my faith in Christ with the boys and parents. He's at work in my family. Each day, I'm blown away by the comments Andrew makes, as he is learning more and more about God. I'm overwhelmed as I see Aaron crawling and exploring his world. My wife challenges me daily by her close walk with the Lord. I saw him at work this week as I preached the funeral service for Bro. Jimmy Peek's aunt. I got to rejoice in some good news from a far country as I learned that one of my cousins by marriage had recently surrendered herself to the Lord, and that the prayers of my deceased Great Granny are still producing fruit today! God is truly at work all around us!!!
As we move forward into the summer months, let us be reminded how much God loves us and the fact that He is always at work! Let's look for opportunities to join Him on Mission. Let's remember that this truly is His work and we get the privilege of being a part of it. WHAT A MIGHTY AND AWESOME GOD WE SERVE!!!
