Devotion for the Month
It’s funny how our Christian walk can mirror the experience of setting up holiday decorations. At times it can be difficult, and we can resent what we believe we’re being denied, but take a look at what Paul says in 1 Corinthians 9:
“Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air. No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.” – 1 Corinthians 9:24-27
Life offers us plenty of easy roads, and when it comes to living out the Christian life, these paths can be especially tempting. The world will tell us to go with the flow of the current of culture, to follow the past of least resistance, but God calls us to do differently. Christians are meant to reflect Christ’s glory on Earth, and this cannot be done without hard work, sacrifice, and grace. So whether you serve God through ministry, or simply through your everyday life, remember to live in a way deserving of the prize.
2017 Brings joy and excitement as our new identity as Family Christian Center offers each person the opportunity to be used by God in their own special and unique way. 2017 is a year of “Relational Ministry” which simply means that all we do will focus on building Relationship reaching our inner families and out to our community.
We are focusing on three (4) areas of Ministry this year, as we continue with the previos goals as well:
1 – Children’s Ministry
2 – Youth Ministry
3 – Senior Outreach
If you are interested in any of the above or any other area of Ministry, please contact us at: www.skyviewchapel.org or by calling 760-366-9119
