A Word from Our Pastor
I am blessed to have such a beautiful wife and seven children. My family and I have greatly enjoyed
the Dunnellon area and are excited to be a part of such dynamic church growth. I have been ordained
since 1989 and this is my fourth appointment ministering to a local congregation. I have served the church
on the District level in two areas and the Annual Conference on the Board of Church and Society.
I can't imagine pastoring anywhere else at this time of my life. I have no doubt that God has blessed
me greatly by serving this wonderful congregation."
Pastor's Weekly Devotion
Our devotion this week comes from Wednesday, February 19. The title is,
"The Right Question". The Bible verse for memorization is Isaiah 55:11,
where the Lord declares, "my word shall not return to me empty, but it shall
accomplish that which I purpose, and succeed in the thing for which I sent it."
That one verse itself gives me great encouragement for when I share with
others the word of God. It doesn't matter if I say it correctly or explain it
correctly, God's promise is that it will not return to him void or without meaning.
The word of God is alive and active and is shared through us and experienced
The devotion encourages us to share our faith. The author makes it clear that
some of Jesus last words on the face of this earth was the great commission
where he tells us to go, into all the world and make disciples.
I have just three simple questions for you to ponder and pray about this week.
The first one is this, when is the last time you shared your faith in Jesus Christ with
Number two, the question could be raised, who would I share my faith with?
A number of years ago we had a program in the church called FRANship
evangelism. :-) The FRAN acronym that stood for friends, relatives, associates
and neighbors. These were folks that we were encouraged to form a relationship
with spiritually and find if God would open up doors for us to share our faith.
Finally, I think it would be good if you start praying for an opportunity to share
with someone that is lost from God. This may come from just praying for folks
that you know in your community or church or work. I think as we pray for them
that God will open up doors in that relationship to share our faith in Jesus Christ.
Good challenge for the week now is to look at these three opportunities
and see if they will work for you.
