A WORD FROM BRO. JOE,
Hey, Summit family,
Thank you for a great attendance this past Sunday, a very generous offering, and a sweet, harmonious, and enthusiastic annual business meeting after our worship service! Even surpassing all of that was the powerful prayer time we shared at the end of the service, when many came forward to lay hands on, anoint with oil, and pray for little 3 year old Brady Norton as he faces very serious heart surgery this week, at Children’s Mercy Hospital up in Kansas City! Please continue to lift him and his parents, Jared and Abby, up before our Heavenly Father in prayer.
Luke 1:37 proclaims, “For with God nothing will be impossible!” Theologians have speculated about what is possible for God. For instance, “Is it possible for God to create something so heavy that it would be impossible for Him to lift it?” Such speculations promote endless loops of conjecture without answers. But the Bible tells us all we need to know about God’s ability: “For with God nothing will be impossible.”
For example, an elderly woman past childbearing age gave birth to a son as did an unmarried virgin girl. In both cases, they were told that nothing is impossible for God (Genesis 18:14; Luke 1:37). Jesus made this same point on several cases. He said it was impossible for man to save himself but not impossible for God (Mark 10:24-27). Jesus declared that God could save Him from impending death if it was His will (Mark 14:36). He even said that nothing is impossible for the one who has faith in God (Matthew 17:20). The point of all these examples is the same: We must shift our focus from ourselves and our ability. What is impossible for us is possible for Him.
If you are facing an “impossible” situation today, look to God and trust in His ability. Let His will determine the outcome (Matthew 26:39). C. T. Studd writes, “Christ wants not nibblers of the possible, but grabbers of the impossible!” I couldn’t agree more!
This Sunday I will be concluding my sermon series on “Worship” with a message entitled Worship and Warfare. Don’t miss it! I’ll be looking for you. Love always, Bro. Joe
