One thing a pastor has to do is look ahead and anticipate what is coming and then equip the congregation to face that future. It doesn’t take a prophet to look ahead and say that in this life we will have afflictions and trials, we will endure suffering in all sorts of various trials. I feel more compelled to prepare us because of the complacency many of us have as comfortable American Christians. We are easily lulled into thinking we deserve an easy life. I revealed this attitude when I asked you for prayers for flying to Ohio and for driving back to Lynden. Asking for prayer is good, but my motive wasn’t completely pure. I wanted everything to go as well as possible, I didn’t want any inconvenience, any problems, any hardships. God put me to the test right away when my midnight flight out of Seattle was delayed an hour and a half and I was told I wouldn’t make my connection out of O’Hare. It was clear to me that I had no control over what was happening. God was most merciful and I actually made the connection with the door closing behind me. Not exactly the crown of life, but a clear sign of God’s undeserved generous grace.
