“Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.” -Galatians 6:7-9
The year has truly flown by! It is unbelievable that in just a short while, we will be ushering in the New Year. This time of year is a really special opportunity to just reflect on God and all that He has done. While Thanksgiving is not necessarily a Christian holiday, as believers it is a wonderful day to set aside to reflect on the goodness and blessings of God. More than even looking at the material blessings God has given us, it is important to focus on just how much of a blessing God Himself is. It can be easy to get so wrapped up in life that we forget who God is. Truly He has given us the best blessing by sending Jesus to die on the cross. Our sins are forgiven and we have direct access to a relationship with God, nothing that happens in this life can take that away. Praise the Lord for that! This is the hope that our Circuit Riders are busy taking all over the world. There is much going on in these remote areas. Every day there are miracles, both little and big, and hearts being opened to God. You’ll never hear these stories on the news, and some of them you may not even know until you get to Heaven, yet God is moving in mighty and powerful ways. As you celebrate this holiday season, please remember our Circuit Riders and the work that they are doing for the Lord. Encourage your family and friends to pray for them with you! Thank you so much for interceding on behalf of the Circuits and the men and women running them. Have a wonderful month! Blessings!
CBC Conquers Romans 8:37 Sunday School
A lot of children have had a chance to seek the Lord. It has been a struggle for most of the parents and guardians here because they have never had the chance that the kids have had. Some of them say that it is unfortunate that they had not been taught in the way that they teach at Sunday School because they could have been very advanced by this time. The cults on the other hand have become more and more unpopular since the children have had the chance to read the Word on their own. They hide the Word and read it in secret. Then the cult leader comes out and says that the Holy Spirit was saying things. The leader would mention what they read and twist it to suit what they want. Then they skip the things that are not helpful to them. They have been running the cults and the people do not know the truth from the Word because the people cannot read it. Now every one of our kids have a chance to memorize the Scripture and they are able to stand up in the name of the Lord or the Holy Ghost against whoever is lying to them.
