Message from Joe Frost Director of Technology & Operations

1 Peter 5:6-7 Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time HE may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on HIM, because He cares for you.


The apprentice. The newbie. The greenhorn. All of them in training. All assigned to another, much more skilled in the trade, art, discipline.

This new job won't be a walk in the park. Some thumbs may be smashed; some toes stepped on, but as time goes on it will get easier. Especially if the directions are followed.

The trainee can perform the tasks in one of two ways: listening to the master and doing what's expected or wasting time trying to find short cuts.
Though some methods may seem foreign, if followed, the outcome is known. As for straying from the tried & true, well, as a jeweler knows, deviating even the smallest amount can render a raw gem stone either a precious diamond or just a pretty rock.

We are the apprentices. And the work of GOD is to believe in the One He has sent. Sounds simple enough. Putting it into practice is where it gets difficult. But we're expected to make mistakes, we're beginners with an eternity to get it right. We just need to focus on the trainer, Jesus, and follow the directions He left for us in His Word.

Beware, living out the truth in the bible can be challenging. Our life's job can be challenging. He's told us not to stress it though. Learn from Him. Humble ourselves trusting His direction for our lives. He really does care. He will exalt us!

And while we're at it, let's look for another apprentice that's further down the road from where we are. There's much to learn & many others we can learn a little something from along the way while we're all learning from HIM.
