A Word of Encouragement from our
Director of Missions
Well, I did it again! I preached Sunday morning, January 11, 2015 on Philippians 3:7-14. I say again because I think I’ve preached from this text every January (or most) since December 31, 1989 when I first wrote the sermon. Of course, it has been modified and “homogenized” several times over the years. Essentially, the message is “forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus” (v. 13).
Though the sermon is old, the message is more relevant than ever. “Whatever things were gain to me those thing I have counted (considered) as loss for the sake of Christ. More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.” This is a good position to be in. Otherwise, we are prone to live in the past. I’ve believed for years that I am much better served to learn from the past but live for the future.
So, in the new year, 2015, let’s just agree again to chalk-up the past to experience, give Jesus all the glory for our successes and entrust all our future service to Him. He has good things in store for us. So, lets follow the direction of God in Jeremiah 33:3 “call to me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.”
Encouragingly Yours, Russell Cook
