Miracles begin with love and UNITY!

Unity matters because it is a fence that protects us from the wolves that want to rip the Church apart. I know that sounds dramatic, but listen to how Paul wrote about it in Romans 16:17–18

“I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them. For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites, and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naive.”

 We are a culture accustomed to discord. Our politics are based on two parties in duke-it-out mode. Our news comes to us through two talking heads debating both sides of every story. But I can assure you this is not God’s model for His church. God’s people are meant to be an oasis from the “schism” all around us. I believe Unity in the Church is an evangelism tool. I also believe we can win lost people when they see unity and love among Gods people.

Paul tells us to be on the lookout for those who come against the unity of the Church. Let’s all be determined to check ourselves and see if there are any ways we are committing the “sin of schism. “With Jesus’ clear call to unity in mind, I’d love to urge us as Christ Followers to do all we can abide in unity and build one another up in love. God commands his blessing where there is love and unity…and I desire His blessing, how about you?

  1. Both Donna I will be in the church office on Mondays from about 9am – 1pm until our move. If you need us for anything that would be the best time to see us.

 

  1. Please keep us in prayer as we will be meeting this week to sign a lease for a rental house. This has really been a process, but we believe this is Gods timing. We would love to be moving the first week of May if God is willing. We need you to agree with us for two things:
    1. God will supply the down payment needed to secure the lease.
    2. God will provide us a good renter for our house in Grand Rapids quickly.
 
  1. Please pray for Gods leading and direction as we begin to assemble our ministry team that will join us in the vision we have to reach this community with the love of Jesus. I will be praying and fasting for a youth pastor to join the team as God directs. Please join me in fervent prayer over this matter.

 

  1. I want to encourage you to Join us this Sunday for Sunday School 9:30am… and also Wednesday night School of the Spirit 7pm…I know you will be blessed.

 

You are LOVED!!!
