The recent shark attacks may cause us to reconsider going for a swim in the ocean. It's safer to just stay home. Following Jesus also comes with risks; we head into dangerous territory when we commit our lives to him. And yet, this Sunday, five young people are going to do just that: they are going to publicly profess their faith in Jesus and their desire to live for him. In Matthew 4 we read about how Jesus called his first disciples. They "immediately" left what they were doing to follow him. There would have been plenty of times when they may have wondered "what was I thinking."
The call from Jesus is not to be resisted. And he will equip us for any dangers or risks we may encounter. Join us this Sunday, July 5, at 10 am for a service of praise. We will also be celebrating the sacrament of the Lord's Supper.
