Reflections

Reflection, Peter Ladenheim - Student Ministry Director

Recently, I started doing something that I haven’t had any desire to do in a very long time…I began running! June 15 marked one year until I get married and I realized that even though I’ve talked about losing weight, I haven’t actually lost any. So last week I decided to go out for a run in a nearby park. After running the trails, I climbed a tree and sat down to read my Bible. Proverbs 14 vs. 23 jumped right off the page, “In all toil there is profit, but mere talk tends only to poverty.” For so long I’ve talked about losing weight but the reality is unless I put in the work I’ll never see any results. How often must I do this with God? Many of us talk about going deeper with the Lord, but do we really prioritize Him? I know for myself I can allow the excuses of life to get in the way.  Now God doesn’t just give us commands—He gives promises. The scripture says that “In all toil THERE IS profit…” This means when we put in the work, we will reap the rewards. I’m simply responsible for the little He asks of me and then just stand back to marvel at what He makes when I put in the effort to partner with Him.

Reflection, Preetha Mathews - Communications Director

There is a song we’ve been singing, “Who You Say I Am.” The lyrics speak to the truth of our identity in Christ. I cannot emphasize this enough if I had a bullhorn. In life you will have trouble - your circumstances will change (not always for the better), people will disappoint you, criticize you, and try to label you. You must be confident in what the One, the highest King, who ransomed you, says about you. When this truth is absorbed into your spirit and you begin to live by it, you throw the shackles of limitations off. David was called to be King. When he received this prophecy he was tending sheep and a youth. He could’ve said “Yeah, I’m hanging out with sheep right now. I think you got the wrong guy.” But he knew who God was. David took him at his word. His confidence was not in himself, but in the God that called him to slay Goliath. Truth—you are not a slave to your past or the labels people try to foist on you. Truth—God really is for you. The next time you sing this song, declare this over yourself and embrace the freedom of your identity in Christ.
