15 “After he was crowned king, he returned and called in the servants to whom he had given the money. He wanted to find out what their profits were. 16 The first servant reported, ‘Master, I invested your money and made ten times the original amount!’
17 “‘Well done!’ the king exclaimed. ‘You are a good servant. You have been faithful with the little I entrusted to you, so you will be governor of ten cities as your reward.’ (Luke 19:11-17 NLT)
God calls us to be His Faithful Servants, to use the gifts, talents, and time He gives to us in His Service and for His glory. My time at St. Michael's comes to a close on Sunday. I have tried to be God's faithful servant and to give Him praise and glory. Thank God for His love and forgiveness when I have not been as faithful as I should.
My hope and prayer is that you will be God's faithful servant, that you will use your time, abilities and possessions to the Glory of God. My prayer is that God will bring a Faithful Servant to be the next Senior Pastor at St. Michael's.
Thanks for your love, care, support and encouragement during my time at St. Michael's. This is my final posting as the Pastor of St. Michael's. I encourage you to finish reading the Gospel of Luke to see how faithful Jesus was in fulfilling His mission by HIs death and resurrection.
May God's Peace be with you today and every day.
