It’s finally here! Almost four years after Pastor Lutzer became Pastor Emeritus, the Lord has brought us to the day when our church family will vote on the Senior Pastor candidate who has been enthusiastically recommended by the Search Committee, the Elders, and the Leadership Council. The journey the Lord has had us on for the past few years has contained more twists, turns, and surprises than any of us could have predicted. And yet, through it all, the Lord has proven His love and faithfulness by providing for us and guiding us. To God be the glory!

 

You have an important role to play in this process today. You are the final step in confirming the Lord’s will for our church. Thank you so much for your prayers and preparation for this day. And whatever the result, I am confident of the Lord’s continued provision and guidance. God is good.

 

For His glory,

 

Bill Bertsche

Scripture Reading from Philippians 3:7–14
But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ. Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith— that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead.

 

Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

The Three Invitations of Jesus
Mark 3:13–19

 

In this season of fear and uncertainty, could it be that Jesus is inviting us to go deeper into life with Him? This passage contains three invitations from Jesus:

 

1. Come be with Me

 

2. Come together and become like Me

 

3. Come join Me in the work I am doing

 

In this moment when the world seems crazy and everything is stripped away, do you hear His call to go deeper and will you draw near in discipleship of Jesus?
