Sunday, April 10, was an exciting day for our committee. After months of laying the groundwork, we received the names of six pastoral candidates.
Now begins the real work – connecting, interviewing, and praying. As we begin this next phase we ask that you continue to pray for wisdom and discernment – both for our committee and the pastors we are speaking with.
Before presenting the candidates, Matt, our Slingshot consultant, took the time to encourage us through scripture. Though his words were specific to our task in searching for our pastor, I believe the encouragement holds for the entire church body.
Therefore I urge you, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. – Romans 12:1-2
After reading, Matt left us with three simple points.
1. May we all remember the grace and mercy we stand on.
2. That we lay aside our agendas and be filled with God’s.
3. That we set aside the patterns of this world, and look towards God’s instead.
As we begin interviewing and the church continues in a season of waiting, may we all choose to live out our lives as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to our God.
