A Word of  Encouragement from our

Greetings to you all in this New Year of 2019! If you are like me, you had just begun to consistently note “2018” (as opposed to 2017!) on documents requiring a verification of date, and now we must begin to retrain ourselves all over again. Our perception of time’s passage is an intriguing thing. With ever-increasing frequency, I recall a celebration, a crisis, or some other experience thinking that it occurred just a short while ago, only to discover that many months – or even a decade– have actually transpired. Perhaps we are perceiving the reality of what Einstein postulated in his theory of relativity!

  The Bible speaks to the relentless nature of time and of the importance of spending our allotment of time wisely. In Ephesians 5:15-17, the Holy Spirit inspired Paul to challenge his readers to “look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time because the days are evil. Therefore, do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.” These three verses provide a poignant distillation of virtually every other passage in the Holy Scriptures that speak to the importance of time.

  At the dawn of this New Year, my prayer for all of us – and for all of our churches – is that we would live in keen awareness of God’s presence and His will for our lives individually and collectively. I am also praying that God will give us clarity to make His priorities our priorities. If we seek Him in this way, time, instead of being “the fire in which we burn,” can be to us as a river whose steady current carries us from one divinely appointed opportunity to another.

In Christ’s Love and Service,

Rick Blackwell, Moderator
