A thought for any YOUTH WHO 'GOT IT RIGHT' on a summer mission trip or youth retreat: THE EASE OF DRIFTING Nothing is more soothing to the soul than the peace of knowing you have repented of your sins and have made things right with God. Those nights of wondering if you will go to Hell are gone. You can now lie down and pray to your God with assurance that He is listening to you. You have come to the realization that you are a sinner without Him, yet a saint with Him. The choice has been made, the wrongs have been righted, and all is good. One week later, oh the struggle. You have changed, but your friends haven't .....even the ones who said they had. They say words they shouldn't, and listen to music that is far from Christ-honoring.....the kind you have to turn off when your pastor or parent is around. You feel like somewhat of an alien, wondering why the peace you felt a week ago is turning to sorrow. Sorrow that your friends didn't really get it, sorrow that they will distance themselves from you if you call them out, sorrow that you have this huge choice to make. You chose Christ, and now you have to choose to continue to choose Him.....daily. "Therefore we must give the more earnest heed to the things we have heard lest we drift away". This warning, found in Hebrews 2:1, assures us that we will drift away from the Gospel if we don't stay focused on it. We will drift away from God if we don't keep Him in the number one place in our life. Friendships, especially for young Christians, are a huge cause of drifting. It's so important to be in the in crowd, and being unaccepted is unacceptable, so compromise becomes a must. Compromise is the hand that slowly looses the rope that keeps us secured to the Father. As the rope is loosed, the drifting has begun. The more you compromise, the farther you drift, and then you realize one day that the Father is out of have drifted beyond that peace you once felt. You are surrounded by friends, and acceptance, but the rope is gone....and your attachment to the Father is gone. You have traded the Gospel for a ride with Compromise. My advice to new believers, young believers, and those who have made things right with God is don't compromise what your heart condemns. One compromise leads to two, and two leads to many. If you find yourself mulling over in your mind whether something is right or wrong, there's a very good chance it's wrong. If you want to keep that peace in your soul, stay devoted to what you heard from Gods word that made you realize you needed Him. I encourage you each to read Romans 1:18-32. When you continually walk away from what you know is right, God can and will turn you over to yourself and let you drown in your sin. Don't give Him a reason to! Stay true to the One who pierced your heart that day when you decided you needed Him. Make your commitment real, not just a temporary emotional vapor that fades away. Don't drift away from the Truth in a vessel called Compromise.

Operating as usual

Chestnut Ridge Baptist Church

Fall Festival Update: Due to the forecasted weather tomorrow and the fact that we have to start setting displays up first thing in the morning, the decision has been made to cancel the drive through of the characters and their stories. Turn off Chestnut Ridge Road into the lower end of the parking lot closest to Hwy. 76. Drive through the cemetery and then turn right behind the church office. The characters will be at the overhang between the Fellowship Center and the Welcome Center waving to all the kids. You will receive candy bags for each child and bags of hotdogs for everyone.

Prayed this morning at the District office and at Gray Court-Owings School. Pray with me. “Lord our God, may you be with these administrators and staff who are going through a stressful school year. May you direct their decisions so that our students might have the best education possible and so that your name might be known in our district. Thank you for remaining faithful to your people who are in this office. Thank you for being their Rock and strength in times of trouble. May you be with this school today as they go more and more into face to face learning. May the teachers and students know God through what they observe in creation and what skills they learn. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”

INTENSE game of volleyball between HT and LMS! Great job Refuge girls!

Prayed over Laurens Academy and Sanders Middle.
“Lord God, we pray for the students, teachers, and administration of these schools. May you give them wisdom and strength as they learn about the things you have made. May they come to the knowledge of the One True God and find rest in your Son, Jesus. Help them to have patience as the work hard. Amen.”
