Grace Expressed

There is nothing greaterusaloha than grace.  It’s simple. It’s true. Michelle and I have been the choice recipients of God’s grace. For years, we have been involved in starting churches. We have taught at Bible college.  We have seen much.  Yet, regardless of where we have been, what we have seen, God has been so good to us.  Philippians 4:11 puts it this way.  “Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.”

One of the reasons we do what we do is because we have been blessed with God’s grace.  Yet, I have been taught over the years that what God gives you, you pass on to others.  So at some point, we made a conscious decision that the grace which God has shown to us, we want to share with others.

It is this belief that leads to our desire to be a help and a blessing to churches, pastors, and the family of the pastor.  A lot of church members believe that pastor has it easy, or so much of the church work is the job of the pastor (and his wife), that the stress level under which the pastor and his family exist is incredibly high.  That benefits no one – not the pastor, not his family, not the church.

The answer is found in God’s grace.  The problem is finding a way to live in that grace on a day to day basis.  It has taken some time, and it has definitely been an opportunity to see God at work, often directly, in our live.  Yet, it has given some things we feel can be a true blessing to pastors and churches in need.  We hope that you, too, get to live in God’s grace expressed.
