From the Pastor’s Desk – December 2013

Can you believe that it is December already? This morning I was reflecting on the fact that fall is past and winter is here. (Actually winter doesn’t officially arrive until later in December, but it feels like winter...it is about 30 degrees outside and the wind chill is in the lower 20’s.) No one is so powerful that they can stop the march of time. Seasons come and seasons go, and time waits for no man. It is best if we place our life in the hands of the One who created time.

Solomon wrote about the seasons, “To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.” (Eccl 3:1) And while Solomon was not writing about the four seasons he did speak truth about the things that happen in life. He said that there was “a time to give birth and a time to die; a time to plant and a time to uproot; a time to kill and a time to heal; a time to tear down and a time to build; a time to weep and a time to laugh; a time to mourn and a time to dance; a time to throw stones and a time to gather stones; a time to embrace and a time to avoid embracing; a time to search and a time to count as lost; a time to keep and a time to throw away; a time to tear and a time to sew; a time to be silent and a time to speak; a time to love and a time to hate; a time for war and a time for peace.” (Eccl 3:2-8). What Solomon meant was that while life goes on and we encounter all of these things but there is one thing that is most important of all. “When all has been heard, the conclusion of the matter is: fear God and keep His commands, because this is for all humanity. (Eccl 12:13)

So no matter what the season, we must learn to trust the Lord in everything and live for Jesus. And as we approach the season of celebrating the birth of our Savior, no matter what season of life we are in, we must live our lives in a way that brings Him glory. May the Lord bless you as you live to please Him. I am praying for you. Bro. Keith
