The Diary of a Pastor, Entry 2

(Page 1 – Entry 2)

Yesterday we gathered as a body in North Kelso. The aim of our gathering was to encourage, edify, and equip one another in our faith in order to continue faithful, holy, obedient, and active as we await our Lord’s return.

Though few in number we praised the name, nature, and works of God through singing, verbalization, and prayer. I can only trust that God was worshipped and honored by our offerings.

Our theme was “Sonship has its privileges.” We examined four of those infinite benefits or privileges of being the children of God:

·        As a Son, we are the children of God
·        As a Son, we shall be like God (Christ)
·        As a Son, we shall see God (Christ)
·        As a Son, we have a hope that purifies us

Ø Sonship designates believers as children of God
Ø Sonship develops believers in God’s likeness
Ø Sonship destines believers to see God
Ø Sonship demands believers to purify themselves

I can only trust God now and pray that the Holy Spirit will embed these truths in the hearts of God’s people for their comfort and encouragement.

“He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.” (Psalms 126:6)
