It is no secret that we are praying that the Lord Jesus Christ will work in us and through us to revitalize our church. That was the reason for asking every family in our church body to read and follow the prayers in Praying with Jesus 40 Days toward Church Revitalization. I asked in Sunday morning worship how many of you had read the material and only a small number indicated that you had. Once again, I had expected more but I am convinced that if you do read it seriously, the Lord will prepare your heart, soul, strength, and mind for the revitalization process. With this in mind, we will begin another study to help us follow the Biblical guidelines of walking with God. We will also give you another book in the next few weeks. Hopefully by then more of you will have read the first book. We all need to be praying, reading His Word, and making the necessary adjustments to follow Him closely as God’s Spirit works in us.
I am praying for you and your family, and I certainly appreciate and desire your prayers on our behalf as well. Loving the Lord and each other will truly mark us as the disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ. I know the times we are living in are some of the most difficult days some of us have ever known, but the Lord is our Savior, Redeemer, Protector, Guide and Friend. He has always been faithful to us, and we need to draw closer and closer to Him as we travel through this world together. Rely fully upon His promises and every command!
