Excerpt from Day 2 of AW Tozer’s 40 Day Lent Devotional called From The Grave.
“The faith of Paul and Luther was a revolutionizing thing. It upset the whole life of the individual and made him into another person altogether. It laid hold on the life and brought it under obedience to Christ. It took up its cross and followed along after Jesus with no intention of going back. It said goodbye to its old friends as certainly as Elijah when he stepped into the fiery chariot and we...nt away in the whirlwind. It had a finality about it. It snapped shut on a man’s heart like a trap; it captured the man and made him from that moment forward a happy love-servant of his Lord. It turned earth into a desert and drew heaven within sight of the believing soul. It realigned all life‘s actions and brought them into accord with the will of God. It set its possessor on a pinnacle of truth from which spiritual vantage point he viewed everything that came into his field of experience. It made him little and God big and Christ unspeakably dear. All this and more happened to a man when he received the faith that justifies.”
Here is Pastor Rafael Soto of Iglesia Evangelica Dominicana holding the drawings for a new church building. They have recently purchased the property that you see in the pictures. They plan to begin construction soon. Please lift this church and their construction project up in your prayers.
Here is the group of pastors and church leaders from Los Charamicos that I’ve had the privilege of ministering to on this trip. I ask that you lift them up in your prayers. Special thanks to Pastor Rafael Soto Ramirez for hosting me and these pastors at Iglesia Evangelica Dominicana.
C@GV - I am flying out of D.C. in the morning to work with a group of pastors in Los Charamicos. Please be in prayer for a safe trip and that the time spent with these pastors will yield much fruit for the Kingdom of God. Thank you for your prayers.
Have you given much thought to Walking With God this year? First of all, who gets to walk with God? What does walking with God look like? Do you need or want a closer walk with Jesus? We invite you to join us for our 10:30am worship service tomorrow. Lord willing, we will discuss Walking With God.
From Pastor Philip Clements:
Dear Church at Grandin Village,
It’s hard to believe that it is already 2018! I am still trying to answer the question about where did 2017 go? Time seems to fly by so fast these days. The old saying is true…”Days are long and years are short.” As I am writing this letter, it has been two years since I came on staff with the church. Time surely does fly. I can say that it has been an amazing two years.
In September, the staff had a discussion abou...
Does it really matter whether or not I live out God's will? Do works matter? Is the will of God an option? I believe in Jesus, isn't that enough? Lord willing, we will share the heart of Jesus concerning the will of God in tomorrow's service. We hope that you will join us at 10:30am.
