On the Journey...
(Weekly insights from FMC Leaders)
June 29, 2016
Colossians 1:3-6; We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all the saints – the faith and love that spring from the hope that is stored up for you in heaven and that you have already heard about in the word of truth, the gospel that has come to you. All over the world this gospel is bearing fruit and growing, just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and understood God’s grace in all its truth.
I just finished looking through 18 applications for bicycles that were provided by the generosity of this church to the churches in Cuba. From my limited Spanish I could understand how grateful these pastors were to First Mennonite for making these gifts possible. They talked about being able to do their work more effectively, being able to visit their church people, making it possible to carry out the gospel in ways that they couldn’t do before. Like the verses above these bicycles will enable the gospel to bear more fruit and spread the gospel because of your faithful giving. We hope to get these applications translated so that you and I can better understand what this gift of a bicycle means to them.
This is just an example of why I am so thankful for you my brothers and sisters at First Mennonite. We have so much to be thankful for and the various ministries that happen through the church members. We can be thankful for our faithful Pastors who guide us and encourage us to step out in faith to minister to each other and to people in our neighborhood. There are so many stories of members who faithfully live out the gospel each day by loving people around them. We help support missionaries in Israel and in France so we do literally spread the gospel all over the world. I am so thankful that as a church we value sharing the gospel in so many different ways. Let’s continue these many different ways of reaching out and sharing the gospel. By your personal encouragement many more people will be motivated to follow the Holy Spirit’s nudge and share their gifts and talents. Thank you all for you faithfulness and most of all thank God for using us in His kingdom work.
