Happy Monday, the beginning of June! Yeah! Saturday morning I was up at 6:00am, knowing that in a few hours we would be pre-recording our Weekend Worship Service. As my habit, usually the first thing I check is the temperature outside; according to The Weather Network it was -1! What!? But the rest of the weekend was great. I managed to get a bit of sunburn Sunday afternoon.
So about milk. If you have listened to my message from this past weekend you know what I’m talking about. If you have not, go ahead, give a listen with notebook and Bible in hand. I talked about a tall cool glass of milk with added ice cubes to make it nice a cold. So good. Then I joked about chocolate milk coming from brown cows; believe me, I know it’s not true. So this morning Ron comes by the Church and delivers me a 2-litre jug of Chocolate Milk and a dozen donuts to the staff. What a great surprise and a tasty application to the message, we appreciate it. Thank you Ron!
So on that note, as I noted in my message on the weekend, in 1 Peter 2:2-3, “Like newborn babies, you must crave pure spiritual milk so that your will grow into a full experience of salvation. Cry out for this nourishment, now that you have had a taste of the Lord’s kindness.” The milk is more than just reading or studying the Word of God, though it is included; it is prayer, sharing with others, serving others, all the things that come with living as a Christian as we follow and obey Jesus. So hopefully you have started your week off with reading the Word of God. Then praying as to how to serve Jesus this day. Who is it that you can pray for today? Who could use a call on the phone? Who would you go for a walk with? Who needs some encouragement today? The chocolate milk is tasting great, even with adding a few ice cubes, savouring the flavour.
This week at the Wednesday Wonderings I will be having a conversation with Matt & Andi Plett about their move to Victoria with “Youth With A Mission.” They are planning to move within this month, Lord willing. Be in prayer for them, and we’ll see you Wednesday.
I pray for a good week for you.
