Gospel Music Roundup: He is faithful!

TIMOTHY 1:3 As I urged you upon my departure for Macedonia, remain on at Ephesus so that you may instruct certain men not to teach strange doctrines, 4 nor to pay attention to myths and endless genealogies, which give rise to mere speculation rather than furthering the administration of God which is by faith. 5 But the goal of our instruction is love from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. 6 For some men, straying from these things, have turned aside to fruitless discussion,

7 wanting to be teachers of the Law, even though they do not understand either what they are saying or the matters about which they make confident assertions. 8 But we know that the Law is good, if one uses it lawfully, 9 realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers 10 and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching,

11 according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, with which I have been entrusted. 12 I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because He considered me faithful, putting me into service, 13 even though I was formerly a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent aggressor. Yet I was shown mercy because I acted ignorantly in unbelief; 14 and the grace of our Lord was more than abundant, with the faith and love which are found in Christ Jesus. 15 It is a trustworthy statement, deserving full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, among whom I am foremost of all. 16 Yet for this reason I found mercy, so that in me as the foremost, Jesus Christ might demonstrate His perfect patience as an example for those who would believe in Him for eternal life.

What a week..no, even a month, it has been. Seems like a roller coaster ride at times, with challenges in my home and in the homes of others. Hold my bible and watch THIS!

Larissa’s condition has not changed much, but that may be a GOOD thing. Take a moment to pray once more, please… I will keep you all updated as I know more.

One of the things I love best about working with this program, is being so close to so many of you. You have been my support, my encouragement, and the compass that has pointed me to the cross with all my problems, and Lord Knows, there have been many.
Some of you have faced some serious challenges as well. Maybe even had your service in Him challenged, leaving you wondering if you are doing the right thing… All I can say, is… Stay the course, finish the race. He will not leave you or forsake you, and Christ hung on a cross to put an end to that a long time ago!
