“First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world. For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of his Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers”; (Romans 1:8,9)
What a testimony to have your faith known world wide!
Paul wrote that salutation to the believers in Rome. He was expressing his joy and gratitude for their faithfulness in giving to support the gospel.
You know what?
When you are involved in giving to missions your faith is known throughout the whole world. At Liberty we have missionaries that we support all over the world.
Yes Liberty, your faith is known all over the world!
As a Pastor I am so thankful for your unselfish giving to 23 different mission projects. By faith, in 2014 we will reach out even more.
But look again at the last part of verse 9, Paul said “I make mention of you always in my prayers.”
There is nothing greater you can do for a friend, than to consistently lift their name in prayer before the throne of heaven!
Think about that.
The same, Creator of the universe, the God who parted the Red Sea, the One who rescued the three from the fiery furnace, who shut the lions mouth to save Daniel, He calmed the storm, healed the sick, raised the dead, and I could go on and on.
The same God who did all those miracles mentioned in the Bible is the same God we serve today. He still does miracles, His power has not diminished, His ears are not closed.
He waits for us to call upon him.
Do you know someone out of work? A friend who is sick, a brother or sister in need of encouragement? Perhaps you even know someone without any problems! They can still benefit from the power of prayer
Today let your faith be known, share in the victory by praying for others.
Love u all, Pastor Tilly
