Dear Church,

Donít you just hate daylight Savings time?  I sure do.  Itís so annoying, and it takes weeks for my internal clock to change.  Oh oh, thereís that hated word Ė CHANGE.  People seem to hate change.  Iím not really any different, change is scary and requires adjustment.  But letís look at some good changes in life.  Many of you have gotten married, thatís a change; or perhaps had children, ooohh, thatís a biggie; maybe youíve changed jobs or retired, thatís a good change; your children grew up, thatís a bitter sweet change.  Now what happens if someone parks in your parking space at work or church? Or worse, sits in YOUR pew at church?  Thatís not a nice change! What happens if Pastor changes the order of service? Or the way we do communion?  Or even when we do communion?   What happens if we start serving snacks and coffee before worship?  What happens if we start having videos during worship?  Or special music during worship?  What if Pastor asks you to serve in a ministry that youíve never been a part of before?  Ouchie!  Or even scarierÖwhat if the Lord calls you to a ministry that you feel would change you or your life?  I do know itís scary, Iím living it!  But you know what?  God does call us to ministries that will change our lives.  When we choose to follow Jesus, our lives have to change.  Itís not a one hour commitment on Sunday morning, itís a whole heart, whole mind, whole being called to live like Jesus.  Yes, change is scary and disruptive, however John 12: 25 -26 (NIV) tells us -   25 Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life. 26 Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.

 

In His Service, 

Pastor Denise
