Sunday Review, December 9, 2012
Sunday was a great day in the Lord! We continued our study through the Book of Galatians and we discussed Galatians 5:22-23. Paul had just described what we used to be like in the previous verses prior to salvation in Jesus Christ. Now if we walk by the Spirit, we will not carry out the desires of the flesh (Galatians 5:16). The way to carry out the desires of the Lord is to see what it is that He has given us by and through His Holy Spirit. There is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. There is no law against any of these traits that we have in Christ. And notice that this is a singular piece of fruit that has all of these parts! It speaks of the unity of the Spirit with the Father and with the Son. It also speaks of the unity that we have with the Spirit and the Son and the Father. (You can listen to the sermon by clicking here!)
Sunday evening marked another great time with our Annual Missions’ Banquet. We heard from Dr. Aaron Meraz of Bridgeway Baptist Church of Prosper. He is a local church planter who is doing it right! Vinod John and Jun Shim are two others that we heard. These two men are being supported in ministry through Dr. Meraz’s ministry. These men are reaching out to others right where they are. All three of them are training others to do the work of the ministry and are reaching people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Through apartment ministries, college and university ministries, and church ministries, people are learning to grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. We finished our time together with a special offering for these three men and their prospective ministries. As usual, our Fellowship blessed them as we were blessed to hear them and what it is that they are doing in ministry.
To God be the glory, honor, power and blessing!
