Baby Dedication
- March 3rdCall April if you would like to participate.
My personal devotional for today came fromPsalm 71
. “O God, you have helped me from myearliest childhood, and I have constantly testified toothers of the wonderful things you do. And now that I am old and gray don’t forsake me. Give me time to tellthis new generation, (and their children too) about all your mighty miracles.”
(17-18 LB) Except for the“old and gray” part I really like those two verses.Safe drivers know the importance of lookingin the rear view mirror. But too much of that invites anaccident. Our journey together at Eastmont has beengood. There have been fender benders that kept ushumble and enough blessings to keep us hopeful.In a Peanuts comic strip, Lucy was dispensingpsychiatric advice to Charlie Brown. She said, “Life islike a deck chair on a ship. Some place their chair atthe back of the ship to see where they have been.Others place it at the front to see where they aregoing.” Charlie Brown mutters. “I can’t get my chairunfolded” I don’t know about you, but I like standingat the front of the ship (although I’ve experiencedCharlie Brown’s dilemma at times).Every generation is important. I believe Godwants us to reach as many as possible. The two mostrecent generations are the largest most educated in ourhistory. But each generation matters to God. I’veattended enough conferences, bought enough CD’sand tried enough programs to know there is nosubstitute for passion and prayer in reaching the lost.Thank you for standing with me at the front of this ship. Thank you for looking forward more thanbackwards. Thank you for praying, believing, servingso we can reach our community for Christ.Throughout our congregation there are islandsof hope called Sunday School classes. More and moreare finding creative ways to reach their generation. Weare doing a lot and that thrills my heart.Dr. Allen Jackson will be with us Sundaysharing a challenging message. I look forward toworshipingtogether.
