NEXT STEP, ONE YEAR LATER

Because our youth currently are not meeting in person, Greg King, our church’s youth leader, has initiated a really great ministry with our youth using a platform called “Slack.”  What he’s doing is taking a topic – say, “salvation” – and having a 10-15 minute videoed conversation about the topic with another person in our church.  The video gets posted, the youth and parents watch it at their convenience, and then make comments, have discussion, etc.  This is a big change from what we’re used to, but nevertheless, we’re learning, and interacting, in ways that are faithful and life giving.

 

In one of the videos that Greg led, a scripture was brought up that I love: Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. (Hebrews 13:8)  It’s a comfort to know that in this ever-changing world, Jesus – who He is, and what He has done, is doing, and will do – remains the same.  He is the one element of life, in fact, that we can count on.

What Should Our Position Be?

“I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone – for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.” (1 Timothy 2:1-2)

We are now in the first full week of a new federal administration in our nation. We prayed on Sunday, January 17 for a peaceful transition – before, during, and after the inauguration of President Biden. I’m guessing that was a prayer lifted up by many, many people, and we can thank God, like we did this past Sunday, for answering it!

The election and the inauguration have been quite a stressful time for Americans. As things finally have come to a resolution, some of us are pleased with the outcome, while others of us are disappointed. As Christians, who are citizens of our nation and citizens of the kingdom of God, what should our position be?

God’s Perfect Gift

It is the time of year that we all start thinking about giving and receiving gifts. Sometimes these are handmade gifts that show our heart to those who receive them. Sometimes they are store bought gifts but can still show someone how much we care about them. At other times it can be a gift of time or talents. It could be as simple as a phone call to wish someone a “Merry Christmas” or to say “I love you”.

Whatever the case may be, the act of giving and receiving gifts has been around since the dawn of time, and is one of the oldest forms of social interaction. In this act, we can see something of the culture of the person giving the gift, as well as the practices of the society in which they live. For instance, there is an old superstition
