Wow! I am so thrilled with our church, New Covenant Grace Fellowship of Citrus County, FL! (www.ncgrace.com) You know, as far as I'm concerned I am a part of the best church in the state of Florida! I'm not just saying that because I am the Sr. Ministry Leader. No! I'm making the previous statement due to the fact that I totally mean it. Our church is just totally healthy, probably it is the most healthy church that I have ever been affiliated with. I can only give God the total glory for this as it is all due to the revelation that He's sharing with us in regards to the finished works of Christ that is making this super transformation in our lives.
I have never in my life witnessed what is taking place within our church anyplace else, and that included all of the years of travel, ministering in churches all over America. I made a statement during last Sunday's message that went something like this, "If you are a pastor and you disagree with my beliefs on New Covenant Grace, well...I'll compare my people to your people any day of the week!" Now that may sound like a pretty boastful statement and to be honest it is very boastful! However, you have to understand who it is that I'm boasting in; His name is Jesus!
The bottom line fact is that our people are walking with Jesus in ways that I've never experienced in any other church. As a pastor, I'm not dealing with the usual "junk" that comes along with ministry as our people are learning to deal with their "junk" in light of the New Covenant, that which Christ has done for them, including walks in holiness as Christ is perfecting them all of the time!
The vision I am getting of our church is that of a "rallying point" for those of "like precious faith," those who likewise are catching the vision of New Covenant Grace. For many years, I've been totally intrigued by a few verses of Scripture found in Acts 8:1-8. These verses deal with a powerful, supernatural move of God in the city of Samaria. Verse 8 is what I see for our region, "And there was great joy in that city!" Therefore I'm shouting a clarion call to all of those in our region who are catching the revelation of New Covenant Grace, "Rally the troops, let's join together forming "critical mass" and explode all over our region. It's time to put a end to all religion and raise up the true Gospel of Jesus Christ, after all there is a people awaiting for us to share our revelation with them!
Can anyone say, "Glory?"
Grace and Peace!
