Light of Life Devotion and eNews
November 7th, 2017
Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.--Philippians 1:2-6

I can't think of any better words to express to you all at Light of Life than the ones the Apostle Paul expressed to the saints in Philippi. For the past eight years, I have not stopped praying for you all--and those prayers have always been with JOY in my heart. I pray with joy because of the partnership in the gospel we have shared. I pray with joy because God has brought us together and has bound us together in Christ. I pray with joy because we share together the blessedness and peace of our salvation in Christ Jesus.

I also pray (like the Apostle Paul did) with CONFIDENCE because God has done (and will continue to do) great things through you.  It was God who began the good work of ministry here at Light of Life. It was God who brought you to and has strengthened you through faith in Christ Jesus. And it is God who will continue to uphold you and sustain you in all things for the good of His Kingdom and to His Glory. I am confident of that.

And so I pray--with joy and confidence. And I want you to share that same joy and confidence. It can and does only come from God through Jesus Christ. So although I will no longer be with you in body, I will always continue to pray for you. And those prayers will be with joy and confidence, because I know that God is with you, sustaining and upholding you in Christ Jesus. And I pray with joy and confidence because I know that what we have shared here together for these short eight years will be a partnership in the gospel we will share together in eternity. And that gives me joy.

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
I love you all with the love of Christ, and I will miss you all dearly. Feel free to come up to Minnesota and visit anytime!
Pastor John
