From Pastor Meyer’s Desk:

“Making the Best Use of the Time”

“Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil” (ESV)  Ephesians 5:15-16  “making the most of every opportunity” (NIV)

This is part of what we read in our Cottage Group Meetings last fall.  This present time of ‘interim’ and ‘transition’ has been a critical and opportune time for new insights, focus and directed energy in the life and ministry of Grace Lutheran.  With our Town Hall Meeting and the report of the Interim Task Force and our upcoming Pre-Call Meeting with District President Rev. Richard Snow on Tuesday night, April 23 (two days after Easter – ALL ARE URGED TO COME TO THIS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT MEETING!!!), the work of the Interim Task Force is coming to a close AND my task as your Interim Pastor starts going into its ‘wrap it up’ phase.  In other words, we must continue to use this time wisely, especially since this continues to be a time of ‘interim’ and ‘transition’!  As this continues to be true in all aspects of our life and walk with Jesus, we must continue, as we read in Eph. 5, “making the best use of the time!”

As parents, grandparents, relatives, friends and neighbors we are called to be examples and mentors of Christian life and growth in our relationship with Jesus.  Talk about needing to make the best use of time, because we all know how quickly these days fly by.  We cannot put off for tomorrow what we know needs to be taught, shared, reconciled, restored, or begun today.  We are to be people living in awe of God, keeping God’s commands, and fearing His wrath.  At the same time, celebrating and sharing God’s grace, forgiveness and power each day.

This time of year there are a lot of special services with Lent and then Holy Week, culminating in the celebration of Resurrection Sunday.  I have so enjoyed our worship services.  I trust you have as well.  God provides so much of what we need each week through His Word & Sacraments.  I am looking forward to Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday morning.  I think of them all as part of one huge service, beginning Palm Sunday and ending Easter Sunday.  I will attend each one, I encourage you to do so as well.  (Okay, on Sunday it’s okay to only attend one of the three Sunday morning worship services we offer.)  But it is okay to attend all of them.  I do it all the time!

Don’t underestimate the value of your presence when we worship together.  There is an encouragement we provide to others by just being present!  Please don’t ever forget that!

We are called to new life in Christ Jesus.  Each day, we are to remember and be renewed in God’s love and baptismal grace.  Resurrection Sunday (Easter) we celebrate, “Christ is risen, He is risen indeed, Alleluia!”  Each Sunday, we celebrate the resurrection of Christ and His promise that He is with us and will not leave us or forsake us.  When the world gets us down, ‘the days are evil’, we are to remember that God is with us and His grace will sustain us.  Let us do all we can to encourage, build up, and support one another through those tough times.  “Make the best use of the time!”

In our joys and commitments as members and friends of Grace Lutheran, let us keep looking to Jesus, our crucified and risen Lord.  In our work and ministry, in our fellowship, in the time that we work and play together, may we be renewed, together, in Christ Jesus as we each strive to make good use of this time we share! 

In Christ, Pastor Meyer
