We would like to offer our thanks to the Luther Family. Their donation to Grace Gospel Fellowship helped us on our mission to purchase Clutch Cargos. We have dedicated our new chapel to this family to show our appreciation. This chapel will be used for marriage vows and marriage vow renewals. After 15 years, finally the Clutch Cargo sign is removed! Glory to God! Hundreds came to see this on March 26th, 2014. Easter Sunday is the day that Phase 1 will be completed and Grace Gospel Fellowship will have our first service in our new home!
“Being confident that he who began a good work in you, will continue his work until it is finished until the day of Christ Jesus.”
Drugs and alcohol lead Jill to finally surrender to Christ. She has come to know God in so many ways. She knows Him to be her friend. She knows Him to be her comfort while she hurting. She knows Him to be her healer and her counselor. Jill expresses the freedom she experiences when she prays to Jesus Christ. Her greatest desire is that others will see His love working through her. Jill has also found a family bond with others in her church. Through her intimate relationship with Christ, He has taught her to have meaningful relationships with other believers. She even goes on to say “The spirit is thicker than blood.” As Jill continues to go walk with God she also mentors other women. She is a wonderful witness to the love God has to give to those who call on His name.
“ I do not call you servants for the servant does not know what his lord is doing, I have called you friends for all the things I know of my Father I have made known to you.”
What is it in each of us that causes us to fall so easily, into the trap of jealousy? As we watch someone else being blessed, deep in our hearts we feel rejected. Cain and Abel make a willing sacrifice. Each of them offer something precious and only one of them received a blessing. The other was dismissed. Why would a father choose one son’s sacrifice over another? All of us, at one time or another, have felt the grips of jealousy deep in our hearts. Jealousy seizes all that fall into it. It could cause one man to lie. It could lead another to murder. It tells us that we are not good enough. It tells us that we are not loved. It can lead us down a destructive path of sin. Jealousy will cry to us in the secret places of our hearts, and speak darkness into our minds. Cain and Abel were each loved equally by their father. Abel’s sacrifice was one made from a pure heart, which is why his was accepted. It is not what we do that pleases God. It is the nature of our hearts when we do it. No matter what you are doing, God cares more about your heart, than your actions. No matter what you choose, he will always be with you.
“So Cain left the Lord’s presence and settled in the land of Nod, east of Eden”
