From the Pastor

 Isaiah 43:19

19 Look, I am about to do something new; even now it is coming. Do you not see it? Indeed, I will make a way in the wilderness, rivers in the desert.

For many reading this, the title brings back memories (both bad and good). For others that love music, it is a reminder that great music was being created before the year 2000. The point intended however, has nothing to do with music. Isaiah chapter 43 expounds on the redemptive grace of the Lord. All the times that we falter and fail, God will always be there to pick us up. Sometimes this happens to us as individuals and sometimes as churches.

We must realize that God has a plan for each individual and for each church. That is why, starting in January we are starting the campaign “New Year: New Beginnings” This will be the focus of all our ministry efforts and the foundation of the direction God will lead us. I know the thought and idea of change can be scary for many people, especially if you have done things a certain way for an extended period of time. We need to remember however, that the Lord is always in control.

1 John 4:18 (HCSB)

18 There is no fear in love; instead, perfect love drives out fear, because fear involves punishment. So, the one who fears has not reached perfection in love.

The Times are changing at FBC Siler City. Change does not need to be feared, however. Looking throughout the Bible we see where God made change a good thing. The greatest example being His only Son being sent to die for the sins of the world. Before that change, mankind depended on the sacrifice of animals and the favor of other men to be deemed “worthy” of the chance to worship God.

God has a purpose for FBC. What is that purpose? It is to reach this community in a way we never have before. To be a light in the darkness and show His love in everything we do. Does that require changing the Gospel? Of course not! It does however require changes to how the Gospel is delivered. We must move forward and meet our neighbors where they are and help them draw closer to the Lord.

We must be willing to do whatever it is God has in store for us to be the change that is needed to move the Gospel forward. I look forward to this new year and the new beginnings that come with it. Let’s pray together and work together to be the change that God has called us to be.

Philippians 3:13 (HCSB)

13 Brothers, I do not consider myself to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and reaching forward to what is ahead.
