“Don’t Quit” by Mychal Wynn
When people pull you down, as they often will
When the battle you’re fighting is all uphill
When the funds are low and the debts are high
When you’re laughing, although you’d rather cry
When you discover yourself slowing down a bit
Stop and take a deep breath, but don’t you quit
The way to overcome idolatry is to identify the idols, confess and turn away from them, but most importantly, make the constant decision to place our hope and trust in the only one who truly matters.
Our mission statement is to reflect the love of God as displayed through Christ Jesus. When people see that focus more clearly, they are better inclined to make an adequate choice concerning the truth that he offers. On the other hand, if we change our logo or lose our focus with distractions of busyness, politics, pursuit of power, money, and dogmatism about nonessential issues, then those that we come into contact with completely miss the point because we have failed to represent Jesus or his mission properly.
