MUSINGS FROM PASTOR BRAD
“Now to God who is able to strengthen you . . .” Romans 16:25
Christmas is almost here and for many, it will look very different. I could tell you all about how different it may be, from worship to family gatherings to more. But frankly, you know all that. It is pretty obvious.
Rather, I’d like to take a moment to talk about the gift that you are receiving this Christmas. And yes, Jesus is a gift you are receiving this Christmas, the gift of salvation and hope and love. But I want to talk about a gift you have had, maybe a gift that you didn’t realize. The gift of strength.
I’m not talking about physical strength, the kind you grow in your muscles through exercise and weight lifting. I’m talking about strength of the spirit. Frankly, it is a gift that I have seen in so many of you these past months.
You have endured much. We have endured much. The pandemic. Social upheaval. Vicious politics. The inability to gather with family and friends. So many things cancelled, rescheduled, and postponed. Add to that the normal difficulties of life. Death of a loved one. Health issues. Concerns regarding financial stability. Stress. Worry. More.
You have endured much. But you have survived. You have. You are here because you have been given the gift of strength from your loving and gracious God. God has strengthened you in your spirit. You are have survived. You are here. I have seen it. I have felt it. My friends, you are strong. You are strong because the Lord is strengthening you.
And because of this, you can and have survived anything. You can keep going, no matter how long the pandemic goes, no matter what life throws at you, you can keep going because God in Jesus Christ gives you strength. You are stronger than you think because your strength doesn’t come from you alone. It comes from the Lord.
No matter what happens in the next weeks, month, or year, you can handle anything. You are strong. You will survive. Take a moment this Christmas to give thanks for your Savior Jesus Christ and the strength of spirit that you have been given. May God bless you and be with you this day and always!
