Being Faithful

Hey Westside,

Beginning this weekend, folks from Westside are signing up for their new Small Groups. This is part of our Biblical mandate to stick together in tough times and to be there for each other. This is something that is very important for all believers. As the Day of Jesus’ return gets closer and closer, we need each other more and more.

Sometimes we don’t think of Jesus coming back soon. We get to thinking that: “well, He hasn’t come back for two thousand years, so why should I get all excited about Him coming back?” I know that thought crossed my mind a time or two. But, the Bible tells us to “expect” His return. The Bible says that we should be busy about His business until He comes back. The Bible says that we should be faithful stewards . . . and that means being faithful with what He’s called us to do.

I don’t want to be like the unfaithful steward who was afraid and hid his master’s money. I want to be used by Him to make a difference . . . each and every day. It’s not my responsibility to know “when” He will come back, but it is my responsibility to be faithful until He does.
Why not call a friend today and encourage them to sign up for a Small Group? They begin in two weeks and will continue until Thanksgiving. Let’s all be encouragers and “spur” each other on!
Hebrews 10:24-25 (NLT) Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.
