Good morning family! Thank you Jesus for blessing us with a new morning, one that we don't deserve. When we come to think about it we deserve hell and anything more than that is a blessing. How blessed are we. I'd like to thank Jesus today for my salvation and always being faithful. Despite any difficulty our God is a God that is always faithful! He knows the best for us and for others. Oh, that we would be more like our God! What a different world it would be.
I'd like to thank God and for providing for our needs according to His riches and His glory. He's worthy of our praise! Jesus loves us so much! I'd also like to ask blessings financially to those that have taken part of God's call to get Pastor Carlos, Bismark, Diego and myself to the conference we are very blessed here and are learning how to be more effective in the ministry to lean more into God's word and rely on His spirit to guide every aspect of our lives. The theme of the conference is --- 2 Timiteo 3:10-17
10 But you have carefully followed my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, perseverance, 11 persecutions, afflictions, which happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra—what persecutions I endured. And out of them all the Lord delivered me. 12 Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. 13 But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, 15 and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
"Carefully followed my manner of life"....Follow the example of Paul? Why should we follow men? It is because they follow Jesus! We follow the example of brothers that serve and live for Jesus. We follow their example but our ultimate example and not only example but our call to live and to follow is to follow Jesus! How wonderful it is to follow Jesus the author and finisher of our faith!
May God richly bless you today with his grace to live the life he has called us to.
Much love in Christ,
Pastor Carlos, Bimsark, Diego, and Greg
