Words cannot express how thrilled I am to be here at The Well. I am honored and humbled by God as He called me to serve you, The Well, as your pastor. In the next several weeks and months to come, I hope to meet with all of you who call The Well home. Please be patient with me as I learn your names and do not be offended if I ask your name more than once. :-)
Today we begin a new sermon series titled, “Fearless Faith.” We will learn from the Book of Joshua what it means to enter into the promise land. Joshua was the newly appointed leader who led God’s people into the land flowing with milk and honey. Let us journey together as we begin a new chapter at The Well. Throughout Scripture we learn that water is life. We cannot live without water. In ancient time, there was always a well outside the city gate that provided water for not just the city folks, but also sojourners. I believe that God has called us, The Well, to provide water to those who not only call The Well home, but also those who are passing by. Let us be ambassadors of Christ and point others to Him. Jesus said to the woman at the well, “Whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life” (John 4:14 ESV).
As your pastor, I want you to know that I am always available. If you need to reach me, do not hesitate to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Looking forward to see what God has in store for us.
