A Morning Message Wednesday, June 14, 2017

Categories: Morning Messages

Good Morning! What a morning!  This was the last group run in Salem and what a run it was.  Thank you Dru Howard for orchestrating something I will cherish forever.  The run began in our drive and we were surprised by folks along the way with signs and love.  We ended up back at the house with 20 people.  That is 20 folks up and about at 5:00 am.  Carol and I feel loved and love you all so much.  This is my last full day in the office and it is emotional to say the least.  It is a week I will never forget.  Please thank Donald Dodd and the Salem News if you see them, they have been so gracious.  A shout out to Andrew Sheeley as well.  I am humbled and honored.  We are putting a wrap on this decade, but a new day is coming.  Please be praying for your next pastor.  Barry and Tina, they are going through a roller-coaster of emotion as they say goodbye and prepare to say hello.  We put our faith in Christ who strengthens us.  Have a great week and be  blessed!

But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ,        Philippians 3:20 NIV

The Kingdom is coming, we are citizens of this coming Kingdom.  We are to live as citizens of this new Kingdom and as such we follow the Lord Jesus Christ.  He is our rock and our salvation.  I hope you will spend some time in the Gospels and adopt the life of Christ in your everyday life.  We will struggle, but the Lord is gracious and we are a work in progress.  Do what you can to conform to the New Kingdom and I promise you will change the world and be changed as well.  Just a though for today!
