Contentment in Christ

Philippians 4:11 states, “Not that speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.”

Webster defines contentment as “the quality or state of being content.” Contentment is a state of satisfaction or peaceful happiness. As Christians our contentment is in Christ; our joy should entirely be found in Him. The amplified Bible interprets Philippians 4:11 as, “Not that I speak from (any personal) need, for I have learned to be content (and self-sufficient through Christ, satisfied to the point where I am not disturbed or uneasy) regardless of my circumstances.” The apostle Paul was content because he saw his life from God’s point of view. When we learn to see from God’s point of view instead of just our own, we can then learn to be content with what He has for us.

Horatio G. Spafford wrote the famous words, “Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say, It is well with my soul.” Even in difficult times, we can be content when our hearts are clear before God. Often we have a tendency to be discontent with where God has placed us or with what He has given us. To be contentment, we must learn to have a grateful attitude, realizing that God is in complete control.

College Summer Days 2020

Well, that was fun! Can you believe College Summer Days has already come and gone? This year was full of excitement as the battle for 1st and 2nd came down to the very last event… and the Hebrews for the third year in a row came in 1st place. Good job team captains and campers alike!!! We know you put your all into your team!

College Summer Days has always been much more than just a fun time as our focus has been on the things that matter to God. While God wants us to have a good time, we know that any person, young or old, can never been truly satisfied in life if they aren’t a Christian. This year, AWC professor Steve Goodenow shared with us on the theme: Being a Christian in the days of Noah. We deeply appreciate how the Lord led Mr. Goodenow to share relevant, balanced, and factual information that young people need today. Thank the Lord for the truth that we have as Christians coupled with pure and geniune living.

Below, you’ll enjoy pictures from College Summer Days 2020. Don’t forget, just like this year, next year we will be giving scripture memorization and Bible quiz questions ahead of the event… and you’ll definitely want to study up as we are planning on having 2 more teams for you to compete against! Next year we are privileged to have Pastor David Spivey joining us as our speaker. The Lord has blessed his ministry greatly and we believe the Lord is ready to work in a special way next year in all of our hearts. So mark the dates on your 2021 calendar for July 21-23. We look forward to seeing you there!!!

Trusting Our GPS

“I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go:
I will guide thee with mine eye. “– Psalm 32:8

I live in a big city.
Like. . . really big. Even though I’ve lived here my whole life, there are just some parts of the city that are unfamiliar. When I have to go through them, rather than getting hopelessly lost, I choose to use GPS.

The other day was one of those occasions. I was on a busy road only three miles from my destination, but my GPS wasn’t telling me what I wanted to know.

“Continue on this road for two miles.” But was I supposed to turn left or right after that? And what was the name of the road I was supposed to be on next?

I felt like I had already gone two miles, and I started to wonder if I had already passed my turn.
I wanted to pull over and check my phone to find out. I wanted to know exactly what the next step was, and exactly how quickly it was coming up.
Had my phone shut off the GPS? Or was my signal lost?

I kept driving, my stomach tying up in knots as I worried about what was next. “In a quarter-mile, turn left onto Bell Road.” I breathed a sigh of relief and got into the left lane.

Sometimes, we trust God about as much as I trusted that GPS. As we’re traversing the highways of life, we feel the need to be constantly informed about where we are going. We worry that we are going to miss the next turn, and because of that, we act like we deserve constant updates from God about where we are. We fail to trust that He will direct our paths as He promised in Proverbs 3:5-6. “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understand. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct thy paths.”

In the story I just related, I was worried that my GPS would fail to give me proper directions because it didn’t direct me the way I wanted. Is it possible that my GPS would fail me? Absolutely.

But Jesus will not fail us. We may not see where we are going, or know exactly what the next step in life is, but we can trust Him. He has never failed to give clear, adequate direction to His children. Walk today in what you know God has told you, and trust Him to direct you with His perfect timing.
