Over this past weekend we have had Stephen Gachengo from our CTMI partner church in Kenya visiting us. We have been encouraged and challenged as Stephen shared the Word of God with us:
– to make sure we allow the gospel of the cross to deal with our lives and minds every day, and to change us so that we are always growing!
– Human wisdom cannot change us- it is only the work of the cross in our lives that can change us (1 Corinthians 1:20, James 3:15-16, Romans 12:2)
– To desire to catch and carry the right spirit of the gospel (Luke 9:53-56)
– The gospel of the cross confronts our lives but the human nature does not like change. Only if we allow the work of the cross in our lives, we can be changed into the image of Christ. Amen!
(Luke 5:36-39, Ephesians 4:21-24)
