The world we live in today seems to move at a faster pace than ever before.
Everywhere we look, new homes and businesses are being built, old homes and businesses are being torn down, and the neighborhoods we remember from childhood are becoming, more and more, a distant memory.
FCPO-USA isn’t immune to these changes, either. As a nationwide ministry, we see people transition in and out of active membership and leadership roles on an ongoing basis, just like any other organization or ministry.
With all these seemingly constant changes taking place around us, we need to keep in mind that there is One who never changes. Malachi 3:6 says, “I am the Lord, and I do not change." Hebrews 13:8 tells us, "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever."
I pray that 2023 will be a year that sees us not distracted by change from the task in front of us, as laid out in the Great Commission, but staying focused on serving our Lord, who never changes and whose love is eternal.
