LETTER FROM THE LAY DIRECTOR, WTE 72: Ray Warhola

MEN’S WALK: 4 – 7 May 2017

 

It is an honor to serve as Lay Director for Walk to Emmaus #72.

WTE is quintessential Men’s Ministry that provides a safe and judgment-free space for men to meet and openly discuss life issues and challenges that we all face.   The discussions are held with an understanding that we are loved by God and called to Him in a personal relationship for good works. And as we surrender ourselves to Him and organize our life around Him, we have the promise of a “life with abundance” that Jesus promises in John 10:10.

The WTE 72 team verse is Isaiah 43:19 – “See I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”

This powerful scripture speaks to the character of God’s unwavering faithfulness to us. He is our God of new beginnings and second chances. No matter how far we may have traveled down wrong and barren roads, God has not turned His back on us. Instead, He is wooing us back to Him. He calls us to “a new thing!” as He leads our way out of the parched wilderness toward a rich, rewarding life lived in fellowship with Him.

Walking with Jesus and filled with the Holy Spirit, we are empowered to embark upon that new beginning. And as we are renewed and transformed into the Godly men that Christ intends for us to be, His light shines through us: in the home as Godly husbands and fathers; at work as Christ-centered employees and bosses; in the community as responsible and kind neighbors; and in the church as active leaders.

God is doing a new thing! The past is dead and gone; sin is no longer held against us. The Walk To Emmaus affirms our freedom from prior faults and equips us for a rich life that comes from being one with Jesus Christ.

De Colores,

Ray Warhola
