Being a Christian

I like the commercials for teens who are trying to work, go to school, and take care of all the family issues. Being a dad, a husband, a pastor, a Christian, a son, a brother, a friend, it does not end. There are many demands on life. When I went through the Clergy Colleague Covenant Forum at Hinton Rural Life Center, I learned about the balance that we need in life. We cannot maintain any sort of balance without maintaining a relationship with Jesus Christ.
Yes, we Christians end up causing Jesus pain. Forgive me for doing so.
But it is from our constant need for God that we gain balance.
Family and friends give us perspective. Colleagues challenge us. Congregations thrill and chill us. But it is the peace of Christ that maintains us as we go along in life.
Thank you Jesus!
