While it’s a unique year, an understatement to be sure, we know that as a church we don’t go forward unless we’re investing in and teaching the present and the next generation the truths of the bible and the way of living Christlike.
We have a unique opportunity to do this at Oxlip with our BRICK class, but there is so much more that goes on outside of the 11 o’clock hour on Sunday. The church body (that’s you) invests in the lives of these students. What you model makes an impact on their lives. What you hold them accountable to lasts for years to come. How you involve them in what we do as a church sets a pattern for a lifetime.
At Oxlip there is the opportunity at all ages and maturity levels to study God’s word and do so in a setting that isn’t as formal as a lecture. This is a bible study or class that allows for questions, seeks answers, struggles with difficult truths and illuminates darkened understanding. When this occurs we know that this is valuable. I know that this is one of the ways we desire to always improve here at Oxlip church.
We have a great God who has spoken to us in a book with words that will shape our lives. When this becomes the way of life for the church, we influence those who are near us, but we also shine as a lighthouse for those who are around us in the community. This light is not always appreciated, but it is always necessary for those who are IN CHRIST to fulfill their obedience and calling to be the light in the world. We get better at this when we meet together and encourage one another around God’s word.
So as 2020 continues, my exhortation to you would be- do not neglect the word of God, especially the opportunities that will present themselves to join together outside of a Sunday morning. When we become those who are sculpted and chiseled by the scriptures, we are in turn, able to model the grace, the good news, and the accountability we have to a world that increasingly is without mercy, revels in bad news, and refuses to take responsibility.
Where will you go to study the scriptures? Who will you study the scriptures with? When will this take place? All three of these questions, if you don’t have a ready response should be answered by each one of you in the soonest possible way.
Blessings on you,
Pastor Brad Christian, "Christian Education Sunday"
