Yet to Come…

Posted on: March 10, 2014, by :

Yesterday, I sang a song in church entitled God of This City by Aaron Boyd, Andrew McCann, Ian Jordan, Peter Comfort, Peter Kernoghan, Richard Bleakley. 

I was primarily drawn to this song because of the chorus of the song because the words seemed so true for our church.  

Greater things have yet to come
And greater things have still to be done
In this city
Greater things have yet to come
And greater things have still to be done here

The thought that the Lord has more in store for us than has already been done is an exciting prospect.  So many times, churches assume that they may have more days ahead of them than are behind them, but will there ever be a pastor like ______________?
Or will there ever be a church member like __________________? 
Or, nobody will ever do ___________________ like ___________________!

The exaggerated nature with which we discuss our past makes today tedious, and tomorrow a tragedy.  It is true that yesteryear was valuable, and it is even true that we could not be who and where we are today without those who came before.  However, I serve a God who is timeless.  Therefore, the work that is being done by the Holy Spirit is not tiresome to Him.  He will never grow tired or weary.  He will not take a day off.  He does not reminisce fondly of the glory days of His church.  He is concerned about today, and is building up His people to accomplish things that have never been done. 

My church will accomplish more in the coming years, than in the combined total of what has already been done.  I know this because in the coming years, we will stand upon the history that has been provided for us, and stretch out our hand toward the day when our Lord returns.  Our hearts will not grow tired, because our rest and our strength will come from the Lord.  Our enemy will not prevail against us because He who is within us, is greater than he who is in the world.  Not even the death of the Saints will diminish our resolve to share the love of Jesus to the world around us, because they will have provided an enduring testimony for those who come after them.  A testimony that declares before all men that Jesus Christ is worth living for!

Decide who’s you are, and to what purpose you have been adopted.  He calls us all to be a part of His story.  Greater things have yet to come!
