From the Pastor´s Desk June 2011

Life is short. It has been compared to a vapor that is here today and gone tomorrow.  The Psalmist wrote, “As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourishes. But the wind passes over, and soon all disappears; and his place will no more exist.” French philosopher Andre Comte-Sponville asked, “How can one meditate on life without meditating too on its brevity, its precariousness, its fragility?”

I have been reminded of the brevity life during the past couple of weeks. We have seen the devastation and loss of hundreds of lives from earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, and tornados.  Who could have predicted how so many lives would be changed in just a moment?

In James 4 we read, “Don’t plan for tomorrow, for you don’t know what tomorrow may bring.”  We don’t have the guarantee of  tomorrow, but we do have today.  How will you spend your life today? I don’t know about you, but I want to make my life count for Christ.  I don’t want to waste my life pursuing things that in the long run, don’t matter. I want to live to glorify Christ.

Contemporary Christian artist Matthew West wrote: I don’t want to go through the motions. I don’t want to live one more day without your all consuming passion inside of me. I don't want to spend my whole life asking, "What if I had given everything, instead of going through the motions?"

Are you living to bring Christ glory in your life? Will you spend today giving all you are to Christ? Or will you be going through the motions?  I am praying for you. Keith Stone
