Doubt, Reach Out

JesusChristLove1-e1393989333893Luke 24:36-40 “As they were talking about these things, Jesus himself stood among them, and said to them, ‘Peace to you!’ But they were startled and frightened and thought they saw a spirit. And he said to them, ‘Why are you troubled, and why do doubts arise in your hearts? See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself. Touch me, and see. For a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have.’ And when he had said this, he showed them his hands and his feet.”

What are those things bringing chaos or doubt into your life? The ultimate doubt and chaos for Jesus’ disciples was “what’s next”. How many times have we tried to “give it up”, “let it go” or “get over it” one for time?  What’s next?

Jesus tells is disciples not to be troubled and not to doubt. He simply showed himself and said “touch me”.

Today is an opportunity to reach out and experience His grace, mercy, love and care. Doubt? Reach out.

Change

uniform-inspectionJames 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change”.

Ministry takes some turns and twist people don’t expect and AR 670-1 is one of them.  This regulation above all draws the most passion, anger, frustration and conversation than any other regulation.

For those of you who have lived through an AR 670-1 change probably understand what I mean and those who haven’t will most likely find out soon or already see and hear the reaction to it.

I can’t say what ministry and care opportunities can come during this change or what reaction one may hear, see or experience.  I can suggest this however, keep eyes and ears open for opportunities for ministry and mentoring.

God never changes and we have His word that has remained consistent through the ages. God’s grace and love can abound in all situations and He want us to find those opportunities to interject His grave and love.

Charles Spurgeon said, “It is well for us that, amidst all the variableness of life, there is One whom change cannot affect; One whose heart can never alter, and on whose brow mutability can make no furrows.”

You might be surprised how God can work through something, even a uniform and appearance regulation.
