From Pastor Todd’s Desk each Friday
This Week’s Update
Sunday March 26th
Good afternoon all,
One of the elements I love about Paul’s writings in the New Testament is his personal involvement with the churches he founded. The gospel had so transformed Paul that he had deep feelings for his fellow brothers and sisters.
Philippians 1:3–7 (ESV) — 3 I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, 4 always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, 5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. 6 And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. 7 It is right for me to feel this way about you all, because I hold you in my heart, for you are all partakers with me of grace, both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel.
This is the heart of a Pastor who loves the people that God has given him to shepherd. This is gospel love demonstrated by Jesus and which now flows out of us through the Holy Spirit to see His community grow.
This weekend at Exchange Church.
