"Our hatred (for homosexuality) is so loud that they can't hear the gospel today." Today's message was Part 3 in our current sermon series: Sex Education - The Reality of Homosexuality. We looked at the condition, the cause, the consequences and the cure for this issue that is definately becoming mainstream in all areas of life. They need Christ and healing from the Church, but the Church is the one place/people they would rather avoid. And we talked about ways we can change in order to become Christ for them. You can listen to current and past messages from this series here.
God continues to bring precious old friends back into my life thanks to the world of blogging and the internet. I'm so thankful to hear from them and "see" their faces again ... a few times this week just when I needed some encouragement ... so for that, thank You God ...
I also had a great lunch [woolamsam] on Saturday with some wonderful friends (and their family members) who have changed so much the past couple of years [it warms my heart everytime I see you two Sunny and Jenny! Keep living for Christ alone!]. I couldn't help but be amazed by the way God can completely transform people.
And could you please pray for God's strength to be upon me? It was a tough week, and to top it off, I just found out I might have to lead both the Africa and Thailand Mission Teams (back-to-back) this year! I got burnt out just hearing the news ... but hey, my life's whole purpose is to be used for Christ and His Kingdom ... so whatever God wants ... whatever it takes ... I'm His to use ... until the very end ... and until my final breath (even if it's at the end of these trips!).
God, you know my heart ... all for You ... and only for You I will live.
[ps. For Mike and Sehna ... I've added some more MP3 verses + "The Answering Machine Song" and the "Heal This Land" song you requested for download. Enjoy!]
