And the peace of a God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. — Philippians 4:7
Though you have not seen Him, you love Him; and even though you do not see Him now, you believe in Him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy .. – 1 Peter 1:8
The Church was meant to be a beautiful army, sent out to shed light throughout the earth. Rather than hiding together in a bunker, we were supposed to fearlessly take His message to the most remote places. People should be in awe when they see His people with a peace that surpasses comprehension and rejoicing with an inexpressible joy. Think about what above passages are saying! Once again, those phrases sound like exaggerations rather than expectations. Have people ever been in disbelief over the amount of peace you display? Are you known for being ridiculously joyful? Add that to “the immeasurable greatness of his power” in you (Eph. 1:19) and you cannot go unnoticed.
Jerusalem Church in San Pedro Sula has a vision of starting 2500 churches in 5 years across Honduras! Tonight, we worshiped with our brothers and sisters here. It was great singing in Spanish, and if not, singing along in English familiar songs of the faith.
Tomorrow, VBS begins. We will be at two schools; one in the morning and another in the afternoon. Pray for energy and strength.
