The Ordinary Doing the Extra-Ordinary

Aug 17, 2011   //   by Pastor Tony Zibolski   //   Pastor's Corner  //  No Comments

Most people believe that if God still does miracles, He only does them through a select group of people. The truth is that He is looking for people that would trust Him enough to be vessels or tools He could use. What would God be able to accomplish at Rosedale Nazarene Church (RNC) if people who usually sit back would instead become active in the building of God’s kingdom? What lives would be touched if ordinary people like you and me partnered with God by making ourselves available to Him? You were created to walk out your door each morning trusting that God will do something amazing and that you can be a part of it.


Do you expect a miracle?

Truth be told, what do you expect to happen today? This week? This month? This year? Do you live everyday like you are in survival mode or are you living in an expectation that right around the corner is something amazing that the Lord is going to do?  The Bible tells us to “ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” (Matt. 7:7) How many of us live that way? As pastor of a small but healthy and growing church, how many are asking God for things that are bigger than themselves or bigger than what they can muster up themselves? God is still in the miracle business but we are not asking for Him to do any!

Good morning everyone!

As I get back in the saddle of working after having a great time with family and friends, I find myself reflecting on what is important. Vacation has a way of telling us that we need a time away and a time of refreshing.  The precious time I spent on my mother’s pier fishing, time spent thinking about all the great people God has brought into my life, and my quiet time as I seek to find direction and strength for what the Lord still has for me to do: all these have importance. Don’t let your time slip away with the busyness of life. Take time this week to see the value of friendship and the value of the people God has blessed you with. You are a precious gift to me and my family, and the best place to be is in the wonderful arms and presence of Jesus!

I have just read a great book. The title is “Heaven is for Real” by Todd Burpo. It is wriiten by a father of a 4 year old who experienced death and seeing Jesus Christ in a 3 minute visit to heaven.  Quick and easy read that will get you shouting with excitement. Let me know what you think of it?
