Greetings Brothers and Sisters,
Love and grace to you. Thank you for being channels of God’s generosity to Christ Church of Grace during 2018. We praise God for you giving your hearts first to God and then to this ministry. Thank you for your sacrifice.
We pray that God will use all of us more purposely and powerfully as instruments of his love and grace in 2019 and beyond. Everywhere we go, every person we meet, believe that God has sent us on a mission to glorify him by displaying his love and grace. Ask God to open our eyes to see the broken and the hurting. Let us depend on the Lord to empower us by his Spirit to love others. Yes, even those who we may not see as desirable or worthy (Remember the good Samaritan?). Let them taste and see that the Lord is good through us.
Speaking of the love and grace of God, on March 2nd, Katrina and I will celebrate our fiftieth wedding anniversary! Through the years, in good times and bad, God has taught us how to love one another – it is a life long journey. Most people think you get married because they are “in love”. Very soon they fall out of “love” and out with each other. God ordained marriage to teach us how to love as Christ loved the church, sacrificially. Our marriages should leave a legacy of the beauty and power of God’s love and grace for the next generation.
Thank you, and may God bless you to be a blessing to others.
In Christ love and grace,
Earl & Katrina Williams
