BEARING FRUIT FOR CHRIST SINCE 1876

How Will They Know?

Who Will Tell Them?

      

INVEST and INVITE       

The next step in your walk with Jesus is to bring others with you.
  
We have challenged ourselves to embrace adversity, whether it is
depression, death, financial crisis, job loss, etc.
 
We know God puts these trials in our lives to test us.  We have
looked at our own lives and thought about how we can change
our behaviours, and things we can stop doing or start doing to
follow Jesus.
 

               
 
 
THE SON SHINES EVERYWHERE

On a mountaintop, it is usually easy to see the sun shining brightly above and around us.  A valley can be so deep that we don't see much sunlight at all.
 
Jesus shines on the mountaintop of life, but HE is also shining in our valleys as well.
 
Psalm 23:4 reminds us:  "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff confort me."
 
What valley experiences are you having right now where you need assurance that the Son is still shining?  How will remembering that HE shone in your valleys in the past help you to see your way through the present valley(s)?
