I have said before that I maintain what I call a Spiritual Dissatisfaction.  I do not want to become comfortable with how much I have been conformed into the image of Jesus.  I fear that when that happens, I actually stop growing and in fact, I find I tend to go backwards in my walk.  By reminding myself that I have not “arrived” I keep moving forward.  I will freely acknowledge the wonderful work God has done in my life, and give Him glory for the terrific progress He has helped me to accomplish, but there is more – and I want it.

The same thing holds for my hopes for this church.  After all, that is why we changed our name four years ago to Greater Life.  God has used this church for over 100 years, He has blessed Elko, He has reminded Elko of His Great love for them through this church (and many others, but let’s just talk about us for a while).  Are we getting comfortable?  Do we deserve a rest?  Hasn’t God done enough through us?  Hey, let’s give the other churches a chance to do what we have been doing longer than most of them.  Sorry, we’ll rest when we are dead!  There are people here that have not experienced what God wants to offer them.  We are not finished yet!
