Overview: Whatever road that we are now traveling, let’s ask the Lord to come along side of us and open our eyes to see and know Him better. Let’s expect Him to reveal Himself in a surprising way, in doing so, He may allow our resources to dwindle so that we will rely only on His strength. When we are weak in battle, the Lord will be our strength. Jesus loves us so much that He came to save sinners, so let’s thank Him for His gift of grace and become a servant whereby we too will be willing to share this grace with others by inviting them to our places of worship to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ. Jesus is coming back again, so we must be diligent in spreading the good news in a chaotic world, so everyone that accepts  Jesus as their Lord and Savior can be assured of the road that will lead us all home to heaven.

Thoughts from Sister Clovia Thompson – Winter is gone and spring has arrived. The rains of the winter season have just ended, the flowers are in bloom, the air is alive with scents and bird songs. It is time to exercise our spiritual muscles and become spiritually fit.

·       Jesus IS our personal trainer;  let’s walk with Him daily for His surprise visit.

·       Let’s train ourselves to be godly by depending on His strength to carry us when we are weak.

·       Let’s stretch our spiritual muscles by accepting God’s gift of grace.

·       Let’s be spiritually fit to run the race by meditating and studying our personal training manual for godly living  –  the Bible.

Our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit.

We are spiritually in shape, spiritually fit for the Kingdom, and exercise our spiritual muscles.
