A Message from Vicar Scott


God’s Authority and Truth


 

Scott Strachan
Pastor In Training

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ –

We have many opportunities in life to get stuck. Stuck in ruts, stuck in confusion, stuck in anxiety and in wishing circumstances were different. There are many circumstances that I have certainly hoped would be different in the past months. 

On the other hand, there are a great many things that I am grateful for. My family and our family at Faith are right up there to be sure. 

I am most grateful for God’s faithfulness, His love, His mercy and His provision. In times of uncertainty, which is not a new condition for mankind, we as brothers and sisters in Christ are indeed blessed in that we follow God who is constant both in nature, omnipotence and sovereignty. Our truth is in God’s Word and rests with His authority. 

In Refuge, our high school ministry, we have been focusing on the Gospel and specifically on the miracles of Christ. Further in our Young Adult Ministry, we have been focusing on the nature and character of Jesus Christ. Through both of these our focus is that Jesus Christ is both authority and truth. It is evident and unmovable that Jesus Christ, His work on the cross, His resurrection and the continued work of the Holy Spirit in every believer, that we are not stuck in our circumstances, but rather are freed up to serve God and to serve others in His great name. For this too, we can be grateful.

Hebrews 13:8, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever” Praise be to God! 

In Christ,

Scott Strachan
