Greetings in Jesus Name
A whole lot goes through your mind as you write the last post of the year. What an amazing year of ministry the Lord has blessed me with. We have seen the church grow! People have been saved! Families have been added to the church! Our foundation has broadened! More missionaries have been taken on for support! Other churches are in the process of being started! (Since moving to Maine in 1996 our family has been used of God to start two "mother" churches and three more daughter churches with another coming within the next month or so.) My life dream is coming about day after day. Bless the Lord!
Yesterday was so huge! I was able to share the Gospel with so many people. What a great joy. This is the reason why God has me here is to see people saved! Well Glory!
Also on yesterday I was able to purchase a monitor heater to help with heating my study. It's nice to be down here in the daylight basement and have such a wonderful place to come to meet with God!
Today I'm working around the house and spending time with the family. Tonight we go to a new years party at a families house in our church. It's going to be a super doopah day!
Now to the Word of God!
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
In the previous verse the Word of God teaches us about the author that he has learned how to be abased and how to abound. Then this verse is given. In the context I can do the "all things" through Christ of abounding and being abased. Whatever the Lord chooses for me through Christ I can do it! What a joy to serve the Lord Jesus Christ!
A Servant for Christ
