“I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.”
Philippians 4:11-13 NIV
Sometimes life flips you on your head and it’s easy to lose focus. Better yet life flips you on your head and causes you to realize that you lost focus on what’s important. My pastor started off this year teaching a series called “Reset.” Little did we know what was about to happen.
We had no idea that the entire country would be trying to fight a virus that was killing people by the thousands and that some places would have to completely shut down in order to fight it off. In the midst of all of social distancing and isolation God is still calling the church to be the church. As a body of believers we still have to seek and save the lost and share the love of Christ with the world.
That’s us as a whole, but we can’t forget about us individually. Each piece comes together to make the whole. We individually have to stay connected to Christ, so that we can be effective together collectively. We can’t get lost in all of the chaos around us that we forget who we are. Faith in Christ is built for tough times like these. We can’t forget who we are. Remember you are a child of the King.
That leads us to our Throwback Theology Song of the Week. This isn’t much of a throwback, because the song is from 2016, but it fits the message. It’s from my homie out in Virginia – Jered Sanders. The featured song is from his 2016 mixtape, “Hope Is Dope.” The featured song is called “Child of the King.” Tune into Trackstarz to hear DJ Jeremaya spin this for the Throwback Theology Song of the Day. Until next time…
