There's a climactic scene in the 1989 film "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" in which Indy must step out to what appears to be a drop to his death in order to save his father's life. As he takes this leap of faith (SPOILER ALERT on this 29-year-old movie) he discovers that there is actually a bridge cleverly camouflaged to blend into the rock wall beyond it.
There are times in our lives when we are called by God to step out into a future we can't see. He may reveal the first step for us to take, but the other steps are unknown until we've first trusted and obeyed.
I don't know about you, but I usually want to see how everything is going to turn out before I take that first step. But that wouldn't be putting my faith in Jesus - it would be putting my faith in my own wisdom and knowledge.
This coming Sunday, April 8th, we will be concluding our series "Can You See Him?" by taking a look at the story of the Apostle Paul's encounter with Jesus that resulted in his own experience with blindness. I hope you'll be able to join us.
Baby Dedication: Calvin Day
Jason and Trisha Day will be dedicating their son, Calvin, to the Lord this Sunday. It's always a joyful occasion to welcome a child into our church family, but a dedication is more than a welcome. It's a time when his parents commit to guiding and training him according to God's Word and the congregation commits to supporting and praying for the parents and their child and doing our part in helping him to grow to know and love Jesus for himself. Let's dedicate ourselves to loving little Calvin and all of the children in our congregation so that they will be led to a personal relationship with Jesus.
