Connecting Columbia Union Seventh-day Adventists
- Year of the Bible
In a small, two-room Seventh-day Adventist school, I learned these verses and immediately claimed them as my own.
As I look back, I’m certain it was this pivotal time in my life when I sensed God calling me to the gospel ministry. I committed this verse to memory, and, as I repeated it to myself, it gave me the peace of mind I sought.
Genuinely believing in God means to adhere to, trust in, rely on, and, most importantly, have faith in Him. That is scary to me, but I know for certain it is true.
The Sabbath is a gift for all humanity!
God always gives us what we need, not what we deserve.
This verse reminds me that, as a Christ-follower, I have the hope of eternal life when the curtain closes on human history.
In the days when I was young and bold, or as my mother would objectively say, “careless,” I ventured out from my hotel room at 2:00 a.m.
The verse speaks life to me because of the steps I took to experience rest personally, and the rest I invite others in crises to experience in my clinical ministry practice.
Once we have compassion that moves us from our comfort zone, the Holy Spirit can do amazing things through us.
The truth of this verse gives us this pragmatic reality: We are not always where we are based on our merit, nor are we always denied our goals because of our lack.
