Chapel: Come and Go

By Paige Ferrari
Global Outreach Student Leader

Come and Go.

That is how Beth Guckenberger of Back2Back Ministries summed up the Bible.

First, God calls us to come and follow Him. God is calling us to be in His presence, to be in relationship with Him.

Second, the other part of our faith is to go. We have to do what God has called all of us to do, and that is to come and be in his presence.

“He sends us back into the chaos on behalf of His name,” said Guckenberger.

She went on to say how we tell God that we want to do big things for Him, but we don’t want it to cost us anything. When we allow God to work through us and we are obedient to His call on our lives, we see Him pour back into our lives and fill us back up.
