Pastor’s Update

Dear friend of Pine Mountain Christian Community Church,
I have often wondered how I would fare if I was on trial for my faith. Would I completely chicken out and deny Christ? I would hope not. Would my mind go blank and I be left standing speechless?  Would I be so intimidated that I would just sputter nonsense? Or would I be confident, and see my trial as a great opportunity to tell others about Christ, with no concern for my life? That’s what we see in the Apostle Paul, and it is certainly encouraging to see that in such a situation, God is at work to accomplish His purpose. Although we may never be on trial for our faith, it is certainly true that a faith that is tested is a faith that endures. That’s great to remember when our faith is tested through the daily struggles of life. As we learn from God’s Word this Sunday, October 20th, we will see that the Apostle Paul did well because he was in the habit of serving God – and his desire to serve God carried him through the struggle.
