We need the Holy Spirit.  Christ died on the cross to pay for our sins, and to baptize and fill us with the Holy Spirit.  Indeed, He wants us to be baptized and filled with the Holy Spirit over and over again.  And everyday, we must ask Jesus to baptize and fill us with the Holy Spirit.

In the Beatitudes, Christ proclaims the gospel of salvation by grace through faith. The heirs of kingdom are not those who claim to be spiritually rich in and by themselves. Instead, they are those who acknowledge their spiritual poverty and lack before God.

Last Wednesday, April 19, 2017, the pastors and elders of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) Chicago Metro Presbytery formally accepted me as a candidate for Gospel and pastoral ministry.  Previously, I was under the Potomac Prebytery (Washington DC area).

Next step: licensure.

PCA LogoI rejoice in the Lord’s mercy, grace and hand upon me, my family, and our vision for the 10/40 Window.  And I continue to rest in Christ’s Person, life, death, resurrection, kingdom rule and intercession for us.  Relying on His Holy Spirit’s grace and power alone, we press on.

Please continue to remember to pray for me, my family and the pastors and elders who are supervising, counseling and mentoring me.
