My soul thirsts for God, for the living God (Psalm 42:2) When I was younger, I naively thought that if I married the right person, had the right job, and enough money, I would be content and fulfilled. Well, I did marry the right person, I have a great job, and enough resources, but I still have a empty places in my heart. The thirst in my soul can only be satisfied by Christ. C.S. Lewis said "If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world."

We look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal. 2 Cor. 4:18 I think our biggest hindrance to following Christ sometimes is that the material world seems “more” real to us than the "spiritual.”

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? Psalm 27:1 We don't have to live in fear of C19 - respect and precaution of course, but fear, never! God is for us and will sustain us. Please pray for our nation and all affected.

We all will be confronted with difficult decisions. Sometimes the right choice seems a lot more difficult than the wrong one. Hoping to avoid pain and hardship, we can be tempted to make a wrong choice. It's been said, "God wouldn't have allowed it if he didn't have a purpose. Don't just go through it - grow through it!"

In our text today, Paul gives some last words of encouragement to the Ephesian Elders before departing for Jerusalem. On the contrary here are some famous last words of people about to do something foolish: I can beat the light!!! I wonder if it's loaded???? The firecracker must have gone out; I will light it again! What will your last words be? What will you be remembered for most? Let's work on influencing others by words and deeds. Pastor Ken

Sleeping can be hazardous to your health - medically and financially. Advances in phone security can leave us vulnerable. There was a six-year old little girl one Christmas season who used her mother's phone while she was sleeping. The little girl pressed her mom's thumb on her phone, unlocked it, and ordered over $300 of toys on Amazon. Obviously, natural sleep is not as hazardous as being asleep spiritually. It's time to wake up! "Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you." (Ephesians 5:14) Pastor Ken

Have you noticed how pervasive the "organic" movement has become? No artificial anything - no hormones, no antibiotics, or chemicals. 100% organic. It speaks to the desire that we all have to have the real thing - no imitations. People want to see some "organic" Christianity as well - nothing artificial. Bill Hybels said, "Authentic Christianity is a supernatural walk with a living, dynamic, communicating God." That kind of Christianity will change our world! Pastor Ken
