Weekly Word- Don’t Waste Your Summer:
Brought to us by Philip Brown, Singles and College Pastor.
It was 2003 and I was in my second year in seminary when this little book came out called Don’t Waste Your Life by John Piper. At that time I really didn’t know much about Piper except that he was a pastor and a great speaker that I had heard from the Passion Conferences.
But…there was that speech about the couple collecting seashells when they retired vs. missionaries giving their life to serve people until they had died in a car accident. Hmm. Wow!. That message challenged my thoughts that day…maybe the tragedy was actually the senior adults collecting seashells. Were they wasting the life they had left during retirement?
So what was the background passage that led to this powerful message? It was Galatians 6:14 “But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which[a] the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.”. Are you ready to only boast in the Cross this summer? For the world offers nothing to us that is satisfying. So…
As we come out of covid and enter into the summer, many of you are rethinking life and thinking maybe how to start over and do better.
My challenge is the same. Start by not wasting your summer. Get involved in serving the church as much as you can. Boast only in the cross by serving the Lord even in the basin and towel ministries. If there is not a teaching position, then pick up trash for the glory of God around your church building for the 3 months you are there!
