Life is filled with decisions that can impact the rest of our lives, such as a job change or a move to another city. After serving one church for many years, my family and I answered God’s call on our lives to plant a church in another city. We struggled leaving a place where God had blessed our lives with an incredible church family, friends, ministry, and life. Leaving all this was hard.
Even as we answered God’s call, a pastor friend reached out to me. The Lord had called him years before to leave his hometown to plant a church. He told me how he had battled with the decision to move, but then he also shared an amazing perspective. God called his entire family, not just him. Years later, all his kids know Jesus and are now serving Jesus in that city. I, too, can now say I have also seen my kids come to faith in Christ in our new city.
Jesus made a move too. He moved from heaven to earth, coming to us as a baby. His decision impacts all of us—for eternity!
