PASTOR’S THOUGHTS SENIOR PASTOR SAM VALVERDE

THE CIRCUITS ARE IN PLACE: RE-CONNECT!

E

xperts say that when family members suffer cut-offs, family feuds, relationship breakdowns or distancing – all it takes is one conversation, one phone call or one moment of closeness because all that is needed is to put energy through the already established circuit system. Think about it. When a problem arises between two brothers, for example, reconciliation does not need much more than simple reconnecting. Perhaps you have been (or felt) disconnected from God and his Kingdom purposes for some time now. Maybe you’ve felt distance from God’s family. It happens so easily. We get busy, distracted or slowly withdraw into our own life and matters.

• • • • •

The person from whom we expected a warm greeting and embrace seems aloof. People you frequently dined with in the past are somehow unavailable. The altar doesn’t “feel” the same anymore. It seems harder to pray, really pray. It seems that no one really listens, sometimes even God.

About 25 years ago FTC had about 200 members - “back at Slover.” I remember the high level of unity as everyone seemed to be connected to God’s vision for that time and to each other. As the church grew, maintaining that same level of unity became a challenge. One way to “stay together” is to embrace the same vision. Although we may not be able to remain connected to everyone, we must be connected to someone and all must be connected to God. That’s why being baptized and filled with the Holy Ghost is so important. Fast forward to 2011. 1200 members later, it is necessary to embrace the same vision. This vision is to expand the Kingdom of God by living out (REAL LIFE) our passion for God, love for others, penetrating outreach, improving leadership and maintaining healthy families – and all of this can be done at Sunday Celebration Service and weekly CLG meetings. Get excited, God is doing something great. Stay connected. Reconnect by joining (or better yet) starting a small group. More to come!
