Conquer Busy this Sunday

Dear Canaan English Ministry members and friends,

Betty, Benji, Nathaniel, and Tim on the North Shore of Oahu (Sept 9, 2014)

Betty, Benji, Nathaniel, and Tim on the North Shore of Oahu (Sept 9, 2014)

We haven’t had a real family vacation since our boys were in high school. Having a chance to go to Hawaii with Nathaniel and Benji was a real joy. Thank you fellow Hawaii afficionados for recommending places to visit and to eat!

Last Sunday, while many of our members were camping out in Half Moon Bay, I was delighted to share a message to remind our youth and young adults that we are God’s own people. Peter says it this way:

But you aretumblr_m0knvwTgtw1qb5lxeo1_500
a chosen people,
a royal priesthood,
a holy nation,
God’s special possession. (1 Peter 2:9)

There is a special freedom that comes from belonging to God’s family. All our good deeds and love for God’s people and God’s world flow out of our identity. Therefore we don’t have to “earn” the privileges of being his chosen people. That’s Good News! So please don’t forget who you are!

This Sunday, we will continue our sermon series on the Acts of the Apostles. I’ll look at Paul’s Macedonian call and Lydia’s conversion as instances of overcoming busyness. Being busy is insidious. Even Paul and Lydia had to find ways to conquer its faith-destroying effects. Let’s find out how this Sunday!

See you then!
