Scripture of the week: I Corinthians 3:5-6
I am excited about the opportunity to be outside and observe the evolution of seasons. In Atlanta, we are teetering on the edge of spring. It’s quite an experience to leave the 100-degree weather of Cambodia and enter into what feels likes a second winter in Atlanta. Seasons are dynamic, and we need to be prepared for the abundance of spring that is coming in only a few short weeks.
Fresh starts can be cultivated during seasons of transition. As a family of faith, Mount Pisgah is experiencing spring while moving forward and living out a God-sized dream. Together, we are planting the seeds of faith, nurturing them in growth while fulfilling our mission to become a great family tree of disciple makers of Jesus here, there, and everywhere.
Take in the view of this moment. We have already stepped off the ledge and are walking in faith. In Hebrews 11:1, it says: Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. What we are doing now matters. You are a part of God’s plan, and this means we need to get our hands in the dirt in the process of creating something wonderful. The hope we are planting, fertilizing, and nurturing today will grow into a legacy of faith under which generations will rest in the shade of God’s glory.
Throughout Sow Intentional, we have been talking about growing into our full potential both personally and as a church. God has given you many gifts, and I challenge you to consider how you can use them to plant your own seeds of faith in the lives of other people. Know your prayers, dreams, and service matter as we work together and grow into the Church of the future.
See you Sunday!
