Dear Friends and Co-laborers,
Blessed be the one and only true God and father, our Lord Jesus Christ. The scripture says, “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” “John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.” It is reassuring to know our Heavenly father has “given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue”. The word is ever reminding us to: “Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us”. Yes, we can trust God.
The New Year is come. The days pass us by, but the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ remains the same. We are fully blessed by Him. How we are grateful for all His mercies and marvelous Grace. Our prayer is that each new day we will reflect more and more of His Love in us.
I preached for Pastor David Humphries, the morning worship hour at the Tabernacle Baptist Church in Mims, Florida on the second Sunday of December. I had a blessed time with the Church and fellowship with our brothers in Christ. That evening at Temple Baptist Church at Arcadia Florida, with Pastor Doug King, I had the opportunity to share about what God is doing in Brazil. I also preached at the Chapel Baptist Church, here in Clermont, Florida.
Pray for my trip to Brazil now in the month of January. I am looking forward to seeing our friends and brothers in Christ. Pray that we can accomplish all that is needful and that the gospel of Christ may ever increase.
We pray for you that your remembrance and knowledge of our Lord, the only true God, may abundantly increase in wisdom and discernment, that your trust and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ may be steadfast always, and that the love of his Holy Spirit may fill and overflow in your every word and action, with thanksgiving to God though Jesus Christ our only Lord and Life.
