Message for December 15, 2019 from Pastor Shirley

     Walk it out-you are not alone!

      As we read through the Scriptures we find a list of unforgettable walks.  All the way back to the beginning were God walked in communion with Adam and Eve in the Garden.  Abraham took a hard walk with his son Isaac to Moriah. Moses and the Israelites took liberating walk out of Egypt to the Red Sea and then walked right through it!  What about Joshua’s triumphant walk around the city of Jericho. Then there was the walk on the way to Emmaus. Paul had an interrupted walk to Damascus that changed his life.

There are times when you feel great joy, passion, and excitement about being a Christian.  And there are times when you don’t feel it and it is easier to stay seated. At those times you cannot say, “Well, that’s it. I’m not going to follow Christ anymore.”  It is more comfortable just to stay seated. It is more comfortable in my safe zone. I get relaxed and not challenge to move forward when God says get up. 

      We are called to live a life of faith.  Faith has always been something that was meant to be a daily experience with God.  Walking out our faith means living by faith every single day. It means living by faith in every circumstance.  It means trusting the Lord in everything, for everything and with everything. So, walk it out—live by faith in the Lord who has already worked it out and walked it out!
