Choose One Thing

3/2/23 | Weekly Pastor's Email | by Eric Wakeling

    Dear Calvary Family,

    Choose one thing.

    Choose one way to grow or stretch in some way in this next season of your life.

    Don’t pick 3 things or 5 things or a full page list of things.

    Choose one.

    What’s the best one?

    The one God shows you as you pray and listen to him.

    Maybe that’s the one thing. To pray and listen to God regularly.

    Maybe it’s to ask someone to meet up for coffee and help you follow Jesus. That’s called discipleship.

    Maybe it’s to offer yourself to meet with someone and walk alongside them as they follow Jesus. That’s also called discipleship.

    Maybe it’s to help a friend fix their fence and talk about life and faith and God in the process. That’s called discipleship, too.

    Maybe it’s to start serving in a ministry here at church or in our community.

    Maybe it’s to start giving to Calvary or to Calvary Reach or to a great non-profit proclaiming the Kingdom of God through word and deed.

    Maybe it’s to forgive someone or ask forgiveness from someone.

    Maybe it’s to share your faith with that friend, neighbor, family member, or co-worker that God has placed on your heart.

    Maybe it’s to get counseling for your marriage.

    Maybe it’s to pursue Soul Care in some way for your spiritual and emotional health.

    Maybe it’s to attend an event during Reach Week to learn more about how to support missions around the world.

    Pray and listen.

    Then choose one.

    And let God stretch you and grow you.

    May the Lord bless you and keep you,
    Eric Wakeling
