Student Pastor John Freeman - Congratulations Graduates!

Soon you will be walking across a stage and having your alma mater call out YOUR name as a 2018 Graduate. That will be a joyous occasion for you and your family, and I celebrate with you in heart. You’ve done very well to reach this milestone in your life. ERBC is very proud of you and your accomplishments. Job well done!

As you near graduation I want to pass a theme on to you about what it means to Trust In The LORD. To believe in Jesus it takes trust. To walk with Jesus it takes trust. To grow with Jesus it takes trust. Everything about our relationship with Jesus Christ takes trust. Trust is a major factor for you to know Christ, to walk with Christ and to grow with Christ. Trust is a must for growth!

The meaning of trust is to relinquish our control to someone else and depend on that person to lead and guide us. As you are nearing graduation trusting in God becomes an even bigger factor in life. Followers of Jesus are to depend totally on Christ to lead and guide them in all decisions in life.

Here are four reasons why you should Trust In The LORD:

1) He’s conscious. This means God is aware. Matthew 6:8 says, “…for your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him.” Our God is omniscient (all knowing), and He knows what you need as you move forward in life.

2) He’s concerned. This means God cares. 1 Peter 5:7 says, “Casting all your care upon Him, (concerns, worries, anxieties) for He cares for you.” Whatever concerns you concerns Him. Whatever you are faced with, no matter how insurmountable it is, just give it to the Lord - He can handle it!

3) He’s consistent. This means God is faithful. 1 Corinthians 1:9 says, “God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.” You can count on God to do exactly what He says He will do every single time! When people are found to be unreliable, God will never let you down.

4) He’s capable. This means God can do anything. Ephesians 3:20 says, “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.” This says that nothing is too hard for God.

FACT: God wants all of us to trust Him, God blesses those who trust Him, and God is worthy of us trusting Him. As you move forward in life continue to Trust In The LORD. Psalm 37:5 says, “Commit your way to the LORD, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass.” I pray that you will Trust In The LORD with all your heart now and continue to do so all the days of your life. I can’t wait to hear and see how God is going to use you to impact this world for Jesus Christ. God bless you, and if you haven’t heard it today, Jesus loves you!

PLEASE NOTE: The Graduate Recognition Service for High School and College Graduates will be Sunday, May 20 at 10:30 a.m. in the Sanctuary.

Please Pray for Summer Salt Camp

Summer Salt Camp will be held June 11-15 at White Oak Conference Center, Winnsboro, SC. I know our church takes prayer seriously, so please begin to pray for our camp and continue to pray our students. We are taking 90 students and 12 adults leaders. Pray that as we worship and hear the preaching of God’s Word that we listen with intent to obey. Pray to the Father for the favor of God over us all during that week as well as our families back home. Thank you, Church for your prayers!
