Pastor's Ponderings: September 23, 2013

My middle daughter and I are taking an online business course.  In a recent lecture, the professor mentioned that in order for businesses to be successful, the owners have to ask themselves how do they create and sustain value. While the church is not often seen as a traditional business, the notion of demonstrating value is still important.

Do we share with others what God has done for us or do we say, "I was lucky”? Do we demonstrate through our everyday life the joy of knowing Him and that He has forgiven all of our sins? Do we tell our neighbor that we had the same challenges that they have but when God is walking with you, He gives you peace and strength to endure?

We are told to go into the world and preach the Gospel. A part of this message is to share the value of your relationship with God with others. Don't keep it to yourself! They don't know what they are missing!

Romans 12:10-12
King James Version (KJV)

10 Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;
11 Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;

Mark 16:15
Amplified Bible (AMP)

15 And He said to them, Go into all the world and preach and publish openly the good news (the Gospel) to every creature [of the whole human race].
