A Letter to IN2 and Crosswalk
Today, March 31, 2012, I am leaving the Big Island of Hawaii with 15 others to begin our journey to French Polynesia. Please keep us in your prayers.
I wanted to write this letter to share how God has been working in my life. Before DTS (Discipleship Training School), my relationship with God was at best lukewarm. Over the years, I became very good at playing church but at the same time did not have an intimate relationship with Him. My perception of God was that He was there only when I was “good”.
The enemy (Satan) told me I was a sinner and was not good enough to receive God’s grace and love. And I believed Him. Not anymore!!! The Lord ministered to me and gave me Romans 8…
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.
For the first time in my life, I have freedom. I no longer live under a continuous dark cloud of guilt and shame. Now, I wake up every morning thanking God for loving me and my prayer is to have an encounter with Him so that I become the encounter.
Tell God you love Him. Listen for His voice. What does He say in response?
There is so much more to share but don’t want to sound preachy. (That’s Pastor Marc’s and Pastor KC’s job.) I will share more in the coming days while I process and apply all that God has shown me the last three months.
I have a verse for you, IN2 Church… Hebrews 12
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
