Message from on high LOL
1. God will not be present every Sunday at worship. He needs time to recharge His batteries by going to the lake, beach, mountains and camping. God wants the church to understand that he needs time for Himself too.
2. God will not be blessing His people during much of the summer months. He will try to be regular with His giving but sometimes there are unexpected events cause Him to run short or simply forget to pour them out. If this causes a problem please just "trust God to provide".
3. God will also not be offering forgiveness those weekends He is away. He asks the church to save up our sins the weeks He is not present and He will get to them once school starts.
4. God will not be doing much "saving of souls" during the summer. His busy schedule, time away, and previous commitments, makes it difficult to commit His Holy Spirit for the events. He asks the church to understand that this is only temporary and once programs get ramped up again he is sure souls will be saved once more.
Praise God this is simply a nightmare for our Lord says:
“I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
Hope your summer is touched by God's presence.
