Grace Happenings | May 17, 2023

Pastor’s Pen

These are days to keep our eyes on Jesus and the prize set before us!  Be reminded of Romans 8:37 We are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.”  As we walk with and worship Christ, we are guaranteed spiritual victory.  In Christ, we are spiritual champions.

Max Lucado gives an excellent illustration:  Picture it this way.  Imagine that you are an ice skater in a competition. You are in first place with one more round to go.  If you perform well, the trophy is yours.  You are nervous, anxious, and frightened.  Then, only minutes before your performance your trainer rushes to you with the thrilling news, “You’ve already won!  The judge tabulated the scores, and the person in second place can’t catch you.  You are too far ahead.”   Upon hearing that news, how will you feel?  Exhilarated!  And how will you skate? Timidly?  Cautiously?  Of course not!  How about courageously and confidently?  You bet you will.  You will do your best because the prize is yours.  You will skate like a champion because that is what you are!

This is the season of champions!  As we step into all that God has for us it will be exhilarating because the victory has already been won. Which is why we can think from victory!

It is my privilege to grow along with a lot of fellow champions! People who are doing and want to do something great for God. The longer I am at Grace the more I realize that I am surrounded by emerging warriors, growing game-changers and developing champions!

It will be the privilege of the Elder Team to Ordain Stephanie Berglund to the ministry on June 11 at 5:30 PM.  All of the Grace family is invited to be present at this wonderful time in the life of the church and in the life of Stephanie.  Stephanie will be sharing from the Word on June 10 and 11 and the Pastor Paul will be sharing from the Word at the Ordination Service.
