Reading:
From the first day I arrived at Due West, I have prayed that our lives, and our ministry would make a difference for God’s kingdom. And they have made a big difference! I feel fortunate to have been a part of what God is doing here.  As I travel on to my next appointment at Union Chapel UMC, I leave you with one gift. It is a passion for God’s word. There is nothing I have done that has had a bigger impact on my relationship with Christ than daily Bible reading and prayer. So I offer this gift to you, as well. This week’s devotional readings are some of my favorite passages. I invite you to read them, and before you do, ask God, “What are you saying to me through these scriptures?” After reading them, ask God, “How might I apply what I have read to my daily life?” I have been transformed by the living Word of God, and I pray it will continue to transform your life, as well. May it be so in our lives today.
May the Lord bless and keep you!
