Last Sunday, as we kicked off our new series Surrender, we looked at how God calls us to surrender our idols and instead place our hope and our trust in Him to provide all that we need. We heard the story of George Mueller and the amazing way in which God provided the resources needed to care for more than 10,000 orphans.
Now, I know that many of us are never going to care for so many little ones, but each of us has the opportunity each and every day to place our trust and our hope in Jesus. For He came to this earth to free us from the false hope we place in our homes, or our calendars, or our reputations. Jesus came saying to us, “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me…. I am the way the truth and life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:1, 6) Ultimately Jesus is the only one we can trust to provide for us.
If you happened to miss the message you can catch up on our website – www.FullerCRC.org – under the Media tab.
This Sunday we’ll move on to the next two scenes in Elijah’s story. Together we’ll unpack 1 Kings 17:7-24 and we’ll explore how our worry often overwhelms us. There are moments in our lives when the waves of worry seem to drown us as they come one after another after another. I’m looking forward to exploring this text with you.
This week we’ll also be holding an ever so brief congregational meeting after our worship service to hold a vote with the opportunity to affirm for those individuals who feel called to let their names stand as potential elders and deacons. The Council is encouraged by those who feel this calling.
Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday.
Grace and Peace,
