All things through Christ

by Nelson Roth
The topic this month that Pam and I are writing about is - celebration.  It's the ninth of the ten responses of Nehemiah.  

After finishing the rebuilding of the Jerusalem wall, they took time to celebrate.  It took a lot of effort and work to get to the finish line, and they didn't stop there - they celebrated!  I can only imagine that thoughts of the upcoming celebration helped the workers keep their eyes on the day that their goal would be reached.

In many ways, this is where we are right now at Relevant Ministry.  RM has a goal of purchasing the camp in Pass Christian, MS.  We've come a long way, and there is a ways to go to reach the goal.  It almost seems impossible, but then "with God all things are possible." Matthew 19:26

So, we press on with our eyes on the goal believing - "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens." Philippians 4:13

Together, we can cross the finish line and together we can give God the glory for what He has done.

An important response right now is belief and faith.  Philippians 4:13 says - “I can do;” and with that I am reminded of the Roger Bannister story.  He's the first runner to ever break the four-minute mile.  It was an accomplishment believed to be impossible, but Roger ran the mile in 3:59.4 on May 6, 1954.  Even more exciting is what followed.  Over the next three years, the four-minute mile was broken seventeen times by eleven different runners.  Why? They believed that it could be done.  Along with the four minute mile, Roger Bannister also broke a psychological barrier and made it believable to others.

Well, as we write about celebration in April, let's keep our eyes on the goal and keep moving forward.  Thanks to everyone for your prayers and investment into Relevant Ministry.
