    « Sunday Sermon Recap - August 21 »

    Good Wednesday to you.

     

    Well, that was a first. Our guest preacher was a man who still holds the record as the heaviest baby born in Coronado (12 lbs. 8 oz.); rode the last ferry from San Diego to Coronado; and, as quarterback of our Islander football team, threw seven interceptions…during just the first half…and that’s not a good thing!

     

    This past Sunday Steve Currey recalled his journey from a no-hands-bicycle-riding local kid to his current responsibility of leading teams and empowering those teams to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus, to make disciples and to plant churches across Europe while under the auspices of Pioneers (For almost 40 years, Pioneers has been using innovative and creative ways to bring the gospel to unreached people groups in every part of the globe).

     

    Steve’s journey began during college when he was asked by an evangelist, “Are you for living for yourself or are you living for God?” His answer was a no brainer – he was enthusiastically living for himself. A summer stint driving a bus for a Vacation Bible School in Philadelphia’s inner city became the first time he lived for other people. The experience convicted him to begin seeing people the way God sees them and to begin serving them in the name of Jesus.

     

    Verses penned by the apostle Paul proved pivotal in Steve’s decision to pursue overseas missions as a full-time vocation: Philippians 3:8 reminded him that the most important thing in life is knowing Jesus as Savior. Philippians 2:3 & 4 challenged Steve to do nothing out of selfishness – to put others first. Those words were written for us, too.

     

    Steve’s charge to us is to come before God and seriously ask, “God, give me your heart for the people around me. May I see each person as you do – loved by you; in need of a word of encouragement; in need of a personal relationship with you. May I know no greater joy than serving you and serving others.”

     

    Next Sunday, Ralph West (that’s me) explores the most prayed prayer in the history of the human race, and nothing else comes close. It has been prayed in more languages, across more continents, in more cultures and civilizations, century after century for 2,000 years. Curious? Read it in Matthew 6:9-12.

     

    For Steve Currey and Pastor David…and me,

     

    Grace and peace,

     

    Ralph West
