This year and for the next couple of seasons we are going to go through Proverbs for chapel. I am excited to study together and excited to get the season started. I always look forward to getting the green flag dropped on a new season at Rockford’s Spring Opener. There is no difference this year so let’s get started.

PASTOR TODD & ERIC HUENEFELDPASTOR TODD & ERIC HUENEFELDWhat makes the beginning of the season so exciting? 1) We get back to one of our loves; 2) We get to spend time around friends, race family and those we care about; 3) Being adrenaline junkies, we get our fix; 4) The sound of a roaring engine and squealing tires and the smell of oil, brakes, etc…; 5) Everyone has hope and new goals for a new, fresh start of a new season. We don’t know where it is going to lead but we set the goal for each race and the season; 6) and for me, to be able to minister to the race community and the many needs that people have. There is more but that is enough for now.

The Israelites are called by God as His own yet they struggled to obey and it cost them many times. God was so patient sending prophet after prophet to warn them of their sin. There were points where God said that is enough and here is your punishment. One of the punishments was this: knowing the promise and God’s faithfulness yet not being able to walk into the Promised Land. There can be times we know there is a blessing from the Lord but our sin keeps us from obtaining it. God desires to bless us but cannot just look the other way on sin.

This week there were a couple of tragedies in Madison, a little too close. First there was a worker that fell and was killed at a construction site and then Thursday a lady was killed as a catering truck on campus backed up. It really gets our attention when things like this happen.

In both cases I am sure the person did not get up in the morning knowing they were going to step into eternity. It made me pause and think how important is it to be ready for eternity. We will all live after death of the body in Heaven or in Hell and depending on what we have concluded about Jesus and what action we took will determine our future in eternity. Our place in eternity is set upon death of our body.

Read what is says in James 4:13-15. 13) "Now listen, you who say,'Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.' 14) Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. 15) Instead, you ought to say, 'If it is the Lord's will, we will live and do this or that.' " (NIV)
