Have you ever wondered what it would have been like to be one of the original settlers in America? As a person leaving the safety of England to come to the New World and start over?
Those people came here for religious freedom and risked it all. When they landed in New England, they literally put down roots as they built and planted the beginnings of an amazing experiment that is still ongoing.
Colossians 2:6–7 says, "So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness."
Our ancestors were definitely strengthened in their faith as they faced challenges and danger.
But the payoff was worth it.
Maybe you’re going through something similar. You’ve moved to a new place. New job. New social circle. And you want to find a church! Just tell Jesus you need help with all these things and He’ll be right by your side.
Lord, forever you have walked with us and forever you will keep us close, making us strong in the faith. Thank you for your faithfulness to your Mission. Amen.
