The Pastor's Perch

Moving On. June is already upon us, and for some of us, it means moving on. Moving on to the job you interviewed for, moving on from school, moving on away from home, or just moving on from whatever.

For the followers of Jesus, we always are moving on. Paul reminds us that we have dual citizenship (Philippians 3:20) so our priorities are different from those around us. We see things differently because of our perspective (Ephesians 1:3; Colossians 3:1). This means we are not tied to the things of this world that pass away. How do we want to move on? 

As ones who have been washed clean in the wounds of Christ and seek Him daily. As ones who are transient to this world, because we have a heavenly home. As ones who serve Him here in time and there in eternity. As ones who serve others with the peace, love and forgiveness we have been shown by God in Christ (Colossians 3:15–17). As ones who seek the good things of God in His Word and in His Gifts. We move on, but we move on in Christ Jesus. Adios. (A Dios vais--May [you] be [commended] to God).
