IT'S ALL GOOD

We all have different experiences in our lives that hit us all across the emotional spectrum. We have good times, bad times, trying times, times of struggle, frustration, times of joy, laughter, peace, times with no answers, and times with all the wrong answers. We can often find ourselves in the place of being "fair weather Christians". We only praise God when times are good. Sometimes I don’t know if I would even give us that much credit. Sometimes when the “sun is shining” in our lives we don’t praise God for it, but rather just take its warmth for granted. Yet when the “rain is pouring” its all to easy to just blame God.

This past Sunday, Pastor Bescye Burnett reminded us with the lyrics of a gospel song that no matter what is going on in our lives, “It’s all good”. God is in control and has a purpose for everything even when we cannot see it.

We visited both United Methodist churches that Bescye pastors in Elyisan, MN and Janesville, MN. We saw a few smiling faces of youth from Red Rock Camp at each church and tried to catch up on what had gone on in their lives since June.

Each week we visit different churches to share about the ministry God has called us to. Sharing about the ministry, we keep foremost in our minds that we are really sharing about Christ. We are introducing people to Christ with every word we say and every action we take. Pastor Bescye challenged each of the congregations to think about how they introduce Christ in their lives.

She shared a clip from Comedian Steve Harvey. Steve Harvey has been known as a rather inappropriate comedian with some foul language, but God seems to have done a work in his life and brought him to a new understanding of grace and redemption. Watch this clip, Introducing Jesus , and ask yourself the question, "How do I introduce others to Christ?"

Blessings,
Bryan
