No Vacation From God

Those hazy, crazy, lazy days of summer are here, just as they were promised by God to Noah just after the great flood (Gen. 8:22). But though we enjoy the changes of the seasons, Christians are not to change in faithfulness to God (1 Cor. 15:58). Passages of inspiration for us to live by are the same “Yesterday, and today, and forever” (Heb. 13:9), which means that pleasant and recreating personally do not allow unfaithfulness to God. We are to be Christians wherever we may chance to be and our relationship with Christ is not “put on hold” just because we are away from familiar family and friends. Let us remember still to:
1. “Forsake not the assembling of the saints” (Heb. 10:25).
2. Be “salt” and “light” for Christ (Matt. 5:14-16).
3. “Flee also youthful lusts” (2 Tim. 2:22).
4. Give as we are prospered (1 Cor. 16:2).
Do not forget that the elders and the local work plan for obligations of work with your giving in mind. Do not ask the Lord to pay for your vacation.

5. Pray for the local congregation as we continue to uphold the light of the Gospel to the lost (Phil. 2:12-16), and as we pray for you and your save return!

Come home refreshed and ready to meet your responsibilities once again!
