from Pastor Brian
We live in a society that champions being busy all the time. The more we can get done the more productive our day is and the better we will feel about ourselves. Countless times I see people who just cannot sit still. As I’ve studied the Bible, prayed and asked God for discernment, I’ve come to a completely different understanding. Life is not about how many tasks we complete in a day. It’s not about being so proficient at so many different things that people marvel how we do everything. Life very simply is really just about loving and knowing God.
We should be focusing all of our time and energy on knowing Jesus. To many people this will sound strange, wrong and impracticable. But if you want to be known by Christ and spend eternity with him, this is where it all begins. Jesus does not ask us to love God during our free time or when it’s convenient for us. Jesus says we are to love God with our whole heart, mind, body and soul. For this to happen we must be completely committed to him. Every inch of our being is to be committed to God. It is something we must diligently strive for in order for us to know God the way he wants us to know him.
Other things will compete for our allegiance such as our families, finances, health concerns and everyday problems. But we have a promise from God that if we seek him first and faithfully follow him all of our needs will be met in him. God is all powerful. Colossians 1:16 tells us that everything, including us, were created for God by God. “For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him for him.” We are God’s and all he asks of us is our total devotion to him.
The number one thing I have heard in my short time at All Saints is people want the church to grow and by this almost every one means numerically. I would love to see this also. I believe it will grow if we totally trust ourselves to God. If we are known as a church that is faithfully obsessed with God; spiritual growth will occur. And to be very frank, spiritual growth is the most important growth. If only one person comes to know Christ because of our obsession with God, then we have been very successful. “Success” in the church and our personal lives is not based on how much we do or how many people come to worship on a Sunday morning. It’s based on our faithfulness to God. The only thing we need to be concerned with is falling completely and hopelessly in love with God.
We as a church do not exist just to do projects or to make money, we are here to worship and praise God. The rest will fall into place. May we set aside all of our multi-tasking ambitions to focus on what really matters; God. May each and every one of us make a commitment to be totally committed to God each and every minute of every day.
A Message of Welcome From All Saints Lutheran Church
Hi! My name is Pastor Brian George and I want to extend a warm invitation to you to come join us here at All Saints Lutheran Church. Our Mission is to know, Serve, and Promote Jesus Christ through worship, fellowship, education and outreach. Here at All Saints Church we see ourselves as the center of spiritual growth where God is praised and his loving message is proclaimed through worship and music that is energizing, inspiring and uplifting. Worship and music inspires the worship participant to be blessed so that they become a blessing to others. At All Saints a warm and loving welcome is extended to all and everyone belongs. Our congregation is growing larger and smaller at the same time; meaning you can always find your place here in one of our smaller groupings. At All Saints we grow spiritually through daily devotions by being a part of a small group and by giving and sharing our blessings with others. At All Saints we discover our God-given gifts and are inspired to use them. Here at All Saints we are known on the community grapevine for being a congregation that reaches inward in ministry and reaches outward in mission. We are “The Church With Open Arms!"
