Quick Word from Pastor Rob

One thing that we should all understand is that Christ is enough.  He will help you to power through your life.  Here are some ways He does that.  He provides power for contentment.  Paul knew this when he said:  “Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content”.  He lived his life on the basis of contentment not how much or how little he had.  What makes you content?  If you can’t answer this question the world will answer it for you.

He provides power for overcoming.  We all face giants in our lives and at the heart of every giant that you face is Satan’s plan to defeat you.  Shortly before Jesus went to the cross He warned Peter:  “Satan has asked for you that he may sift you as wheat but I have prayed for you that your faith should not fail”.  We know that Peter later denied the Lord but we also know that his faith was strengthened and he preached a mighty sermon about Christ on the day of Pentecost.  He provides power for service.  This is what will keep you going for the long haul.  I have observed many “shooting stars” in my ministry.  By that I mean people who appeared bright for a brief time in the Lord’s service and then faded out of view.  The disciples displayed His power and some who witnessed it said:  “you have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine”.

Christ is enough.
