Day 7 Gratitude Challenge

Thanks to Brenda at Garden of Learning for hosting this Gratitude Challenge.  It has been a great exercise for me to stop and reflect on the many blessings that God has bestowed upon me and my family.

Today I am thankful for a Pastor who faithfully proclaims the Gospel.  In the reading, the preaching, and the proclamation of God’s Word, I am refreshed. I am very thankful that I have a Pastor who does not water down the Gospel, but boldly proclaims the forgiveness that is ours through the grace of Jesus Christ.  I feel our Pastor truly fulfills Paul’s words in the book of Titus.

Titus 1:9 says “He must hold firm to the trustworthy word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to rebuke those who contradict it.”

Thank you Lord, for the gift of a Pastor true to You.

I agree. It would be wonderful and such a blessing if all pastors were true to their calling.

Have a wonderful week!

Pastor is awesome. I am also thankful that he stays true to the Word and doesn't hesitate to call people on it if need be. Great service this morning.
