Happy New Year, and Upcoming Schedule
My dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all! Amen.
We have come to the end of the year 2015. Thank you so much for your partnership, prayers, support, and encouragement in the ministry of the gospel of Christ. Many of you have given generously to the ministry of the Diocese. The Lord will replenish and provide for your needs. God our Father has been with us in our times of trouble and comfort. He will continue to be with us this new year for His glory and to our blessing.
As we begin 2016, I invite you to resolve to rejoice and give praise to God for his many blessings granted us in the heavenly places in Christ, determine to honor Him in the way you live your life daily, and commit to preaching his Word with passion and boldness. For those of us called to lead the church I pray that the Lord will enable us to be godly examples to our churches as well as empower us to preach his word without dilution in this new year. Here is the counsel of an illustrious Anglican theologian Dr. J. I Packer, "Doctrinal preaching certainly bores the hypocrites; but it is only doctrinal preaching that will save Christ's sheep. The preacher's job is to proclaim the faith, not to provide entertainment for unbelievers- in other words, to feed the sheep rather than amuse the goats."
"The LORD bless you and keep you; The LORD make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; The LORD lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost." Amen.
I wish you a Happy and Blessed New Year!
