“Lord, I will follow You, but......."; Luke 9:61

Luke 9:61 says, “And another also said, “Lord, I will follow You, but… But is one of those words that by its nature signifies a point of interruption, or a change of direction. "I was on my way to the store BUT the phone rang." "I planned on going to church this morning BUT I remembered that it was the final round of the playoffs.” Anytime I'm in a conversation with someone and they're telling me something good or giving me a compliment then all of a sudden, they say 'but', I know that I'm about to hear something that I might not want to hear. "We love the work you've been doing, it's been absolutely fabulous BUT......". "We've been married for 20 years. We have some beautiful children. We've built a beautiful life together and I'll always love you BUT…" In fact, whatever someone said before slips into nothingness as soon the word "but" shows up in the sentence. It comes to the point that whatever compliment or good thing that was being said feels like only a diversion, a disarming tactic that sets you up for the unpleasant nature of what was their true thought or whatever came after the 'but'.

“From Bondage to Breakthrough” Revelation 12; Numbers 13

Of all the accounts of people experiencing breakthrough in the word, Israel stands out the most to me because they experience a lot of things.

As people of faith who are to be about God’s redemption and salvation, suicide (and preventing suicide) and traumatic loss are our business. Our faith does not give us permission to live lives of denial. Our faith, does not provide us with easy answers, but our faith invites and instructs us to wrestle with whatever is the root cause of our challenge. That's what we, at church, are committed to doing as we seek to be a hub of hope and healing and a center for wholeness.

“ The Presence of God In Our Life”

Pharaoh was going to commit persecution upon the Israelite by killing every baby boy who was born to the Israelite women, and his plan was to use the Israelite midwives to perform the atrocity. But the midwives feared God more than they feared the Pharaoh, so they let the baby boys live.

"It’s for the Cause"

Titus 1:4-5

You are here for a cause!

A cause is a purpose. It can be defined as a reason to take an action. It is a motivation to do something that will bring about a desired result.
