Strengthening The Churches

strengthening churches

36 Then after some days Paul said to Barnabas, “Let us now go back and visit our brethren in every city where we have preached the word of the Lord, and see how they are doing.” (…) 40 but Paul chose Silas and departed, being commended by the brethren to the grace of God. 41 And he went through Syria and Cilicia, strengthening the churches.” Acts 15:36, 40-41

This speaks so much to me! This is the passion of my heart. Strengthening the churches. So people can have a spiritual home and family, have community, grow as believers, know what belongs to them through the finished work of Jesus, equip them for ministry etc.

Making Our Face Shine

making our face shine
This verse from Psalm 104 stood out to me today.
“And wine that makes glad the heart of man, 
Oil to make his face shine, 
And bread which strengthens man’s heart.”
Psalms 104:15 NKJV
Wine, Oil, Bread.
All pointing to the crushing that Jesus went through
on the cross that we read about in Luke 23.
He was crushed so that we
may be made whole in every area of our lives.
Love how the finished work of Jesus at the cross
shows His amazing love for us,
