Title: Wind In The Sail

FROM THE PASTOR’S DESK…
Are You Living Or Existing?
Jesus promised us the power to fulfill His mission through the Holy Spirit. “You Will receive power and you Will be my witnesses.” We are Christ followers we are not Christ fans. Fans sit on the sidelines, followers get into the field of play. Followers are in the midst of the action. We must be men and women of action, Men and Women of the Cross ready 24/7, ready to seize each day. A man once told his wife that he never wanted to live in a vegetative state dependent upon a machine. He said, “If that ever happens to me, I want you to pull the plug.” So She got up and unplugged the television. Are you in a vegetative state or are you in hte filed of play experiencing His power 24/7? We are to pick up this book life, the Bible and live as Jesus lived. We are to evaluate our lives, our relationships, our actions and reactions, our priorities and resources in the light of our relationship to God and His Worship. For all the busyness in each of our lives “Are you getting anywhere?” Are you going anywhere?” “Is there a purpose for it all?” Listen purose gives meaning to our lives. It gives one the ability to say, “I know why I’m doing what I’m doing!” And so the Question needs to be asked: Are you living or are you just….. existing?
