God is Building HIs Church in Tijuana
Yesterday was a special day for us! I preached at two different churches in Tijuana, and Dawn and I visited four churches.
My point is not that we should get some special award for the number of churches we visited, but it is encouraging to think that these churches represent the Lord’s work. It also speaks of the relationships that we’ve been able to build during our time here.
We’ve been praying and we continue to pray for a church planting movement. Through our partnership with Harbor north of the border and Lo Mejor del Trigo (The Best of the Wheat) south of the border we are seeing the church grow.
God’s Spirit is Stirring the Hearts of Men & Women
Dawn and I love our friends with Lo Mejor del Trigo. It lifted up my soul to share the Word in El Niño parte alto and La Morita. We sensed the Lord’s Spirit moving in a special way during the service touching the lives of the men, women and children that were there.
I don’t always have a strong sense of the Holy Spirit’s presence during worship, but I did yesterday. Maybe that is more, because of me than the services I’m regularly at. Yet I do think there are times when God’s Spirit comes on us in worship in a more powerful way.
I pray that we will see more of an outpouring of God’s grace and HIs Spirit at work as we worship and serve him.
The prophet Zechariah said,
Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit says the LORD of hosts. —Zechariah 4:6b
We recognize as Zechariah says it’s not by how great we are, or the talents we have but by the Spirit of the LORD of hosts! Isn’t it wonderful to serve such a great and mighty God!?!
Give Testimony of God’s Mighty Deeds
One of the ways that we are to encourage one another is by giving testimony to how God is working. I would love to hear your stories.
How have you seen God working in your life and through your church?
