From our Pastor:

 

09/23/18

Seeing that I didn't get to say much at the campout meeting about the spirit of apathy, thought I'd write a little about it today. This carefree attitude that makes a person indifferent about their spiritual life is truly dangerous to their soul. It's the attitude of “I'm content the way I am” even though one knows they're not right with God. We know when we're living the way God wants us to live and when our heart is cold and insensitive to spiritual things. The heart gets calloused and hard with the way and we tend to get into a stagnant spiritual life that shows very little life about it when it comes to having zeal for the Lord. Oh, we know what we ought to do, but costing and not pressing the battle make for a quieter peaceful life of sorts. Fighting the good fight of faith will no doubt bring conflict and suffering into your life. If we just take the attitude that we won't ruffle the feathers or stir the waters up, we can get along with everyone. Taking up our cross always brings conflict and many times, people that we want to get along with and feel loved by, will end up being offended.

So then, who cares, and let be what will be, is the course many choose to travel. The fire has almost gone out and the fight has left with it. Take stock of yourself and see if you’re just existing in this life now and lost the desire to do something for the Lord. Do you look forward to accomplishing projects, or starting to get back to some of the things you used to do for the Lord?  Is the fire still burning in your soul to see sinners saved? The song we need to sing often to ourselves goes like this: “Set my soul on Fire Lord, for the lost in sin, give me a passion as I seek to win; Help me not to falter, never let me fall, Fill me with Thy Spirit, let Thy will prevail.”
