Editor's Letter

Dear Saints,

Greetings once again in the wonderful name of our Lord Jesus! We continue to look to our faithful Lord in an ever-changing world. Of course, we have been told to expect the kind of world we see unfolding.

In general, the human race has rejected its Creator and is headed for wrath and destruction. At the same time the Lord is faithfully finishing the work He has begun in the hearts of His own.

The lead article this time is, “Seasons.” It deals with the fact that we are told to expect changes in our earthly journey. How we would love for things to be the same, predictable, comfortable! But that is not God’s plan. And He knows best.

Sadly, human nature drives many to fall into one of two serious traps when it comes to the things of God. The one is seeking to preserve things through “tradition.” The other involves “innovation.” The problem with both is that they effectively seize control from the only true Head of the church, our Lord Jesus.

As we navigate the end of the age we surely need as never before to seek to “stay tuned” to our Head. He alone is able to give us the needed light on our spiritual pathway and show us the Father’s plan, both on a personal level as well as for the Body of Christ.

The article, “Through Paths of Dryness and Desertion,” deals with the challenges of different times and seasons in our personal lives. How we would love to always “feel” the Lord’s presence. But we would never grow in Him nor would we learn how to walk by faith and not by sight. God knows what He is doing!

We are looking forward to some fellowship events coming up. The first is the Youth Camp, which is scheduled for Memorial Day weekend this year. Pray for this opportunity. May the Lord raise up a generation grounded in Him, able to stand in this hour of spiritual darkness.

The other is our annual convention, June 21-24 here in Southern Pines, North Carolina. We are expecting folks to gather from many places including some from overseas. Please help us prepare by seeking the Lord for His presence and for the Word we need to hear.

Till next time may God’s rich blessings be yours.

Your brother in Christ,
Phil Enlow
