As we celebrate 11 years since launching our first public Service, it’s only natural to look back and reflect on God’s faithfulness, mercy and love. As I reflect, I am so grateful to God and thankful for the great things He has done among us. However, along with ‘blessings’ (Ephesians 1:3), there have been ‘battles’ (Ephesians 6:12). IF I had known eleven years ago what I know today, I wonder if I would have signed up?
As we look ahead another ten or eleven years, there is a lot of work to be done. There are thousands upon thousands of people who do not know the love and grace of God. If we knew what the future held, we might not sign up – there will be great things to celebrate, but it will come at a cost (Luke 14:28-34).
‘Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up’ (Galatians 6:9).
