Faith?

“If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?” Matthew 6:30

Of all the indictments Jesus spoke about human nature, this one strikes me hardest. I know faith comes from God and I know the vehicle that carries it is His Word. I’m steeped in years of Bible study and still a mustard seed of faith is elusive to me when it comes to facing the lean days summer always brings to our ministry. I’ve prayed. I’ve worried! I’ve even picked up the phone many times to call some of our most generous givers, but my lack of humility always prevents me from making the call. You would think that being in ministry for so long would help me get a grip on how God works and yet I still find myself questioning God’s blessings on our ministry. I wonder if He truly will continue to provide, and I even question my own faithfulness. “Have I done something to anger You?” I ask repeatedly. But fortunately Jesus always intercedes for me. If not, the Father might grow weary of my lack of faith. And the truth is that His provisions always seem to come at the moment of my weakest faith. Maybe that’s how He keeps me from thinking I’m somehow responsible for any of our successes. And maybe He has a similar message for you.

To our donors, thank you for your faithfulness and please know that it is most often Jesus working through YOU that the Father uses to teach me. 

In Christ, PastorJimKilby @Kilbin8er

Worldly?

“You are still worldly. For since there is jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not worldly?” 1 Corinthians 3:3 What a biting indictment from the Apostle Paul. Can you imagine just for a mom

Students?

For years now I’ve been learning a little more about Jesus each and every day. I suppose I’ve learned more than the average person, but surely I’ll not understand all of His teachings while I’m in th
