WE ARE BACK WORSHIPING TOGETHER THIS SUNDAY AT 18:30 AT VORSTADT 30! LOOKING FORWARD TO PICKING UP WHERE WE LEFT OFF IN THE BOOK OF JAMES!
There are always “seasons” in life and our walk with God, good and bad. As we studied in James just before Christmas, it’s through the difficult times that our faith is grown and the process makes us mature and complete!
What about the good seasons of life? Often we just enjoy these times and take them for granted until the next difficult season hits and we again, call out and cling on to God. I share the following in praise for what the Lord did for us this past year. It wasn’t always “easy” but 2005 was an amazing season in the life of the Best’s as we were able to clearly watch God work in nothing short of miraculous ways. As 2005 began, I was still looking for a job and the LIFT Ministry was meeting in the living room of our apartment. It wasn’t quite the expectations we had when we arrived the previous July in answer to the Lord’s calling us to step out in faith for Him.
As 2006 begins, I praise the Lord and give Him ALL the Glory for His amazing blessings for my family and His Lift Ministry. My job He blessed me with has proven better than expected for many reasons, but mainly due to the flexibility to be able to prepare and lead the LIFT services each week and still of course, be a husband and father first to my family. The LIFT ministry began meeting at Vorstadt shortly after 2005 began and we have gained a strong core group and identity of Christians who love the Lord, and momentum is continuing forward! Lastly, our family just moved to Edlibach (just up the hill, but still in canton Zug) this past week and what a blessing this new home is for our family!
In ALL things, we praise the Lord! In sharing life together as a church in Zug, we also can share the good and bad times together in Christian love. Looking forward to walking in life with you all in this New Year the Lord has before us!
By the way, believing IN God is NOT the same as BELIEVING God! The book of James has something to say about this. Join us Sunday night as we dig into God’s Word and understand deeper faith by actually BELIEVING GOD!
In His grip and grace,
Corey and Tanya
