Bradon: You won’t want to miss out!
About the Story
Bradon: To catch us up. We are reading through Nehemiah. He is currently in Jeruselum; after many years, like 100 years, the Israelite people have been exiled. He has returned to help rebuild the town’s wall to its former glory, all while hoping to reunite the people; under God once again!
Jon: No small task! It seems like a lofty goal
Bradon: For sure! It’s a huge goal!
Jon: I like the idea of momentum. Especially for you and me, who work in ministry. But even those who just understand the great commission of sharing their faith with others as a critical part of their life. There will always be a sense of momentum or lack of momentum.
Bradon: Absolutely! And momentum would be the idea of progress being made, and inspiration, good things happening one after another, that sort of thing.
Jon: Right – so in the building of the wall, or the start of something new, a relationship with God, after an amazing week at camp we have momentum.
Bradon: totally, I really like that. You might be a camper who just got home from camp this weekend! You might be feeling on top of the world and super stoked on your relationship with God!
Jon: And we hope you are!
Bradon: But what do we do with that? How do we make it last?
Jon: Well I don’t think we can. It unfortunately isn’t meant to last. Momentum, even in the best of times… always slows.
Bradon: Hmm… So then what. How do we deal with that?
Jon: Well we know that God is Constant. He is in the fast, the slow, the boring, the wild. He is in all of it!
Bradon: God is Constant! I like that a lot.
Jon: It isn’t God who changes, or slows down. It is our understanding that shifts, our perspective. But if we remember that God is constant, it reminds us we are able to learn no matter the speed or growth we feel in any given season!
Bradon: So true! I want to be as smart as Jon when I grow up! Jon: Hahah ohh boy!
