Salt and Light


A Word from Troy.....

“Yes, come”, Jesus said. So Peter went over the side of the boat and walked on the water towards Jesus. But when he saw the strong wind and the waves, he was terrified and began to sink. “Save me, Lord!” he shouted. Jesus immediately reached out and grabbed him. “You have so little faith,” Jesus said. Why did you doubt me?” (Mt. 14:29-31) God has so blessed us this summer. Most of us have been able to re-engage camps, social activities, and mission opportunities. As summer comes to an end, and we set our sights on Fall, we have stepped out of the boat, so to speak, and done what Jesus has asked us to do. I want to encourage you to follow Christ into what hopes to be an exciting Fall in the life of our churches. I also want to caution you to keep your eyes on Jesus. When Peter stepped out of the boat his sole focus was on Jesus and what Christ had commanded him to do. The storm was raging all around Peter, but he did not notice it. Peter’s faith was fixed upon Jesus, not on his surroundings. But we know Peter lost sight of Jesus and the Scripture says, “But when he saw the strong wind and the waves, he was terrified and began to sink.” Our confidence must remain on what Christ leads us to do and not on ourselves. There was nothing ‘safe’ that dark night Peter walked towards Jesus except Christ Himself.

The momentum God has allowed us to experience shows us that He is in charge. This is not the time to take our eyes off Jesus and think we can walk in our own power. I do not know what tomorrow will bring, but that is OK with me. I will walk in the confidence and faith I have in Jesus Christ.

Let’s have a great rest of the summer and an exciting Fall. Above all, keep your focus on Jesus. If He leads, then follow. It’s good to be careful and cautious but there is no room for doubting what God says.

God Bless! Bro. Troy
