Watching the developments in US and world news, one can't help but wonder, "What's next?"  It is easy to become concerned with the "things" of the world and lose track of the reason we are here.  In our title logo, it reads, "Pursuing the Presence of God".  That is what we really need to focus on.  Matthew 6:33 says, "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." (KJV)  As Pentecostal believers, we should be clothed in the fire of the Holy Spirit, looking to always pursue more of Him.  To set our eyes on the world is to be distracted, even overwhelmed by the cares and concerns of life.  But thanks be to God, we have a Savior reaching out His hand to us, to lift us up, and place us firmly back into the center of His good grace.  Fix your eyes on Jesus, and let the problems of the world belong to the world; you belong to Him!
