From Your presence, Lord, where can I hide?

We often treat God as the Lord of the predicament and Master of the pinch. He is there to bail us out. He is the God of our binds and squeezes, but rarely the God of our lives. –Mark Buchanan

Sunday was Pastor’s Day (In Brazil)

I serve God by spreading the good news about his Son.

Jesus, a descendant of David according to his human nature, was declared to be the Lord and Son of God by his spiritual, holy nature. His resurrection from the dead is proof. Through Jesus, we have received grace and been made apostles, sent to call people to the obedience of faith among all the nations for his name’s sake.

I have an obligation to those who are civilized and those who aren't, to those who are wise and those who aren't. So I am eager to announce the good news to everyone. I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes.  For in the gospel of Jesus, and only there, the righteousness of God is revealed.

Please pray for me to be a faithful apostle, truly separated unto the gospel of God.
