Message from Donn Start, Principal West Valley Campus

Isn’t it comforting to know that God has high hopes and expectations for each of us? The fact that He invested the life of His only Son to see us set free shows how precious we are to Him. I used to think that God was disappointed in me when I made mistakes. But God knows every decision we’re ever going to make, He loves us anyway, and He knows that He can change us if we’ll stay in His Word.

I believe that our attitude has a lot to do with how God works in our life. God doesn’t reward a negative attitude or self-pity or an “everybody owes me” attitude. God promises that we will be rewarded if we have faith and hope in Him. Hope is one of those positive attitudes that He desires from us. Having hope is expectations that something good is going to happen in our lives. God wants us to believe that He can change whatever needs to be changed and that we can do whatever needs to be done.

The Bible teaches over and over again that we’re to help hurting people. I believe that’s God’s passion for us. Although He wants us to enjoy our lives and have nice things, He also wants us to remember the poor, the lost and the needy.

Sometimes we don’t seem to fully comprehend that one person can really make a difference. We can sometimes simply inspire people around us just by making right choices. We can also change the world through our prayers, our giving, and by reaching out with the love of Jesus to those who are in desperate need.

You and I can fulfill God’s expectation for our lives by living with expectant hope and being passionate for the things that He is passionate about in life. Blessings to each of you on a Christ-filled week.
