Growing Pains | The Update

by Senior Ps. Erich & Joanne EIsenhart

Hey Church!

We believe that growth is an indication of good health. The problem with growth is that it creates more problems as it happens. However, what is viewed by one as a problem can be considered as an opportunity to someone else. We view growth as an awesome opportunity for us to be the church God has called us to be. Growth requires work; the greater the growth, the greater the work load.

In Proverbs 27:25-27 it says, “When the hay is removed and new growth appears and the grass from the hills is gathered in, the lambs will provide you with clothing, and the goats will pay for your fields. You will have plenty of goats’ milk to feed your family.”

A good farmer will harvest hay and put it away for the winter and dry months. When he harvests the hay, new healthy hay will sprout up to feed your flocks. It takes extra work. It is a pain in the neck, but in the end, your family and your church will be well clothed and well fed. Let’s be a church that looks at growth as a great opportunity for God to give the increase.

See you in church this weekend. Magnus Persson is a world class speaker and a good friend of the House. He’ll be speaking at both morning services as well as in the evening with a different message.

Be blessed!
