Good Morning!

Loving and serving Christ with a passion+

“I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord…We proclaim him…so that we may present everyone perfect in Christ. To this end I labor, struggling with all his energy, which so powerfully works in me.”  (Phil.  3:7,8; Col. 1:28, 29)

Living and ministering in the power of the Holy Spirit

“…Live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature….My message and my preaching were… with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power…”  (Gal. 5:16; I Cor.  2:4,5)

Living by faith and obedience to God’s Word

“…I have faith in God that it will happen just as he told me…Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me….” (Act. 27:25; Jn. 14:21a)

Sharing the gospel by life and word

Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity.  Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.”  (Col. 4:5,6) 

 Multiplying spiritual laborers

 “And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others.”  (2 Tim. 2:2)

Ministering life-on-life

“We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well, because you had become so dear to us.”  (I Thess. 2:8)

Possessing a vision for the world

“He took him outside and said, ‘Look up at the heavens and count the stars–if indeed you can count them.’ Then he said to him, ‘So shall your offspring be.’”  (Gen. 15:5)

 

My prayer is that you are having a great week!
