We have completed our second evangelistic Bible Study and he is really interested. Our Discipleship classes for our new converts will conclude this month. We plan to baptize five. Thank you, David and Annette
Jonathan/Amy Postlewaite – Recently I got acquainted with a young man name Alan. Alan is a Christian from India who is studying at the medical university here in town. He reached out to me because he was looking for an English speaking service (there currently are no English services, just translated ones). I am hoping that with his help I will soon be able to start a Bible study for the English-speaking university students in the city who come from all over Europe as well as countries in Africa and Asia. Please pray for this endeavor.

Heb 3:1 ¶ Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus;
I do not know where you are on life’s journey, but no matter where you are we all need help along the way. One of the biggest lies of the devil is to tell people that they don’t need God, that they can make it on their own. With all of our modern technological advancements, in almost all areas of life it seems that man has been trying to make God or the concept of God obsolete. But I am here today to tell you that I need him now more than ever.
- Consider the Person of our God.
- He is holy his character is righteous completely. There is no sin in Him.
- He is high and Lofty. He holds an elevated position over all creation.
- When he stops being the Holy one in our eyes and when he loses that elevated position in our affection his Character does not change he does not Change but we do. We then become idolaters.
- Consider the presence of our God.
- His presence is the difference maker in all of our lives. He is the game changer. When ever God gets involved in something he always makes the difference.
- If you are living in defeat and no matter what you do you cant seem to win his presence will make the difference
- Consider the patience of our God.
- You may think that you have gone too far, or that you have been away too long. But nothing you have done has surprised God. He is sovereign He knew the route you would take when He made you.
- 2Pe 3:9 ¶ The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
- Consider the persistence of our God.
- He never gave up. Jesus had a way out he could have called for rescue from the cross but he was obedient unto death.
- He won’t give up on you.
- I will donate Ten Dollars to missions in the name of the first person that replies to this email, and types “I read your devotion”.
- Consider the purpose of our God.
- He has a purpose for you
- 1Ti 2:4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
