Shut Down?

Dear People of the Kingdom,

As I watch the news I find myself joining the discouraged masses of independents, democrats and republicans.  Our United States Government has decided to shut down? How can this happen?

At times like this I am glad to be a child of Abraham and a member of God's Kingdom first and foremost. For people of God our hope rests ultimately in the Kingdom of God and in Christ the King . Abraham trusted in that fact and left all that he had to pursue the blessing of God in a new land (Genesis 12:1-5). Let us place such trust in this eternal truth that we might be blessed.

The German theologian Dorothee Sills was asked, "What does faith mean to you?" She answered, “It means that you believe that the Kingdom of God's possible. It means that you are confident that this world can be changed in the direction of the kingdom. And belief or that faith should be so firm and so strong that you are willing to work in order to help it grow. (Dorothee Sills “Three Kings and an Ace”).  How hard are you willing to work for that?

There is hope that comes from a faith placed in the power of Jesus that never shuts down.

Still in one peace,

Pastor David J Jensen
