We are looking forward to the tremendous things God is going to do through the ministries of CPBC as we move into the fall season. Many ministries are gearing up to be stronger than ever as they seek to be a blessing to both our church and community.
Time is one of those things we all have on our hands. We might feel like we have a lot of time or only a little time, but the reality of it is that we ALL have the same amount of time to invest. It’s up to us to however, HOW we spend that time!
If you had a bank that credited your account each
morning with $86,400 but carried over no balance from day to day… Allowed you to keep no cash in your account, and every evening cancelled whatever part of the amount you failed to use during the day. What would you do? You would draw out every cent every day of course, and use it to your advantage! Well you have such a bank, and it’s name is TIME! Every morning it credits you with 86,400 seconds. It carries over no balances, it allows no overdrafts. If we fail to use this day, the loss is ours. There is no going back. There is no drawing against tomorrow.
I encourage you to consider the ministries of the church as you “budget” your time. We tend to make time for the things we consider to be of the greatest importance, whether it be things that will benefit us in a financial way, or family relationships, or a myriad of other things that shout for our attention.
Is there possibility a ministry in the church you can see yourself serving in? Are you doing your best to live a life of purpose for the Lord? While we have ALL failed in our lives, I’m so thankful we don’t have to continue to live that way!
May we all walk with the Lord together and seek for ways to be a blessing to others.
Blessing in Christ, Pastor
