Greetings Fellow Christian!
Greetings to all those who are loved by God and called to be saints! Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. We at Devotion House Ministries thank our God through Jesus Christ for all of you. We hope your faith is thriving and on display in this anxious world. God is our witness that we often mention you in our prayers. In addition to blessing you in His name, we also ask that somehow, by God's will, we may soon meet.
The Apostle Paul wrote to believers in Rome whom he had not yet met, "I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to strengthen you" (Rom 1:11). He then humbly added, "that is, that we may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith, both yours and mine" (Rom 1:12). So also, we are excited by the prospect of sharing Christ with you, that the Body of Christ in our area might grow and build itself up in love, as each part does its work.
If you are currently prospering spiritually among a group of believers, wonderful! May the Holy Spirit continue to open the word to you and unveil Christ Jesus in your midst, to the glory of our Heavenly Father.
But if you are out of Christian fellowship and realize it is no time to "neglect our meeting together", we ask that you consider visiting us. You would be welcome! By His grace, we dare say His anointing is present in our meetings. Come taste and see that the Lord is good!
But perhaps you are in regular fellowship and yet you still sense a "divine discontent". If this rings true, we suggest you pray about it. If something is amiss, perhaps it can be reconciled and set right. If so, praise God!
But what if your unease isn’t arising from anything negative? “The angel who talked with me woke me up, like someone awakened from sleep” (Zec 4:1). Perhaps you are tasting that unexpected blessing Jesus Christ spoke of: "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness" (Mat 5:6). It is written, "the appetite of laborers works for them; their hunger drives them on"(Prov 16:26).
Perhaps the Lord is whispering to you, "Launch out into the deep". Maybe He is calling to you, "Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this." Don’t be afraid, for it is the Lord’s will that we go "from faith to faith" and "from glory to glory". Yes, we "go from strength to strength, till each one appears before God in Zion" (Ps 84:7)!
Jesus is "The Way" (Jn 14:6). Christianity was first referred to as the Way (Act 24:14). Don’t be surprised, then, if Jesus is calling you on and out in your journey with Him! If He is, Devotion House Ministries could be a divinely appointed way-stop for you. We look forward to meeting you!
