Step of Courage

Spiritual Snapshot

Last weekend we showed appreciation for the courage of veterans who sacrificed for our freedoms.  WW1 hero Eddie Rickenbacker said, “Courage is doing what you are afraid to do.”  WW2 General Patton said, “Courage is holding off fear a minute longer.”

What do you tell graduates who are transitioning to life’s next step?  King David had some powerful words for his son Solomon regarding the future:  “Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the LORD God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you until all the work for the service of the temple of the LORD is finished.” (1 Chronicles 28:20).

Like graduates, we are all transitioning to life’s next step of faith.  We all need courage to do the work.  We all need the assurance of God’s presence with us.  We all need to stay on task until the work is completed. Join us Sunday as we honor our graduates, observe the Lord’s Supper & access courage by the Holy Spirit to take the next step of faith.
