A Note from Pastor Rafe
The Shepherd's Vigil
Have you been watching the Olympics? I have. I cannot get enough of all the sports, stories, and images from around the world. Our world is filled with brokenness, violence, and division. Whenever we turn on the news the stories are filled with acts of hate that create hurt and great tragedy for the victims.
Then the Olympics come and we see young people from around the globe not only getting along but enjoying together what they share in common. These young people are clear images of strength, life and hope. What they are doing is not just a sport but diplomacy, they are not just athletes but agents of peace. I have seen Muslim and Christian on the same team, pictures of North and South Koreans together, and young people embracing their competition.
The thing is to get to this point these Olympic athletes have to put in a great deal of time and energy as they focus on the goal. I am constantly amazed at the dedication and commitment they have in order to reach this level. Each young person is willing to forgo so much of "normal" life in order to reach the Olympics.
It makes me wonder what the church would look like if each follower of Christ showed this much dedication to follow the Savior. What a great message to the world if each follower of Christ showed a dedication and commitment to reach Olympic levels of faith! It would truly be a revolutionary message if our lives reflected a denial of self to focus on achieving the goal of following Christ.
Let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus the perfecter of our faith. Hebrews 12:1-2
See you Sunday.
