October 2015 Pastor's letter
Dear Redeemed in Jesus Christ:
Life has bad times and good times. In life sometimes we seem to have only a little energy and other times we seem to have a lot of energy. I am regularly amazed by how much energy many little children seem to have. The little ones seem to keep going and going and going.
As we age we tend to get slower and slower in the things we do. We tend to take more time to do things than we needed when we were younger.
The prophet Isaiah had some interesting things to say about strength and energy for believers in God. Isaiah 40:28-31 states, "Have you not known? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint."
People of all ages need rest from time to time. God has more than enough strength and energy for each day. He has strength and energy as the everlasting God.
When we get weary in life, then we can look to the Lord God for strength. Our God gives strength to those who need strength. Our God renews our strength. Our God helps us to "mount up with wings like eagles."
One of the amazing things about Jesus, the Son of God and son of Mary, is how He became weary in our behalf. Jesus became so weary as He carried His cross that He needed help from a bystander, Simon of Cyrene, to carry that cross. Jesus became weary as He took the cross to the place of His death to pay for all of our sins.

In Jesus Christ's Service,
Pastor Richard Milbrandt
