A Message from Pastor Rodney:
November 2, 2014
We continue our study of Acts, as we work our way through this year’s theme: Becoming the Church of Christ
If I asked, “What is your most valued commodity?” There are many answers you could give. If I offered up some options (money, home, car, or time), one of them stands out … time. In truth, it’s not a commodity, but we treat it as such. “I’d love to help, but I don’t have the time.” “I wish I had more time.” “I don’t have any more time to give to this project.” Like money, we always feel like we need more time.
As we look at Acts this week, we find this has always been the case, and our treatment of time as a commodity has effects on the community of God’s people. In our story for this week, the vulnerable are neglected because there isn’t enough time. How often does that happen? The neediest, the most vulnerable are neglected when resources are limited. This is still true today. If you are interested in God’s response to “time management” and our life together, join us. Make time! I promise in our hectic lives, God has message you need to hear.
Jesus said, "Come to me all you who are weary & carry heavy burdens, & I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28 NLT
