Greetings! Today I will be of service to the Westminster Church in the morning and New Life Church in the afternoon, including a visioning session with the leaders of both churches. Please keep those lovely congregations in your prayers!
The Bible verse that I would like to share with you this morning is Psalm 51:10: “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” (ESV) This verse does not need much explanation, it is a clear message of repentance by David after fully realizing, repenting, and confessing his horrendous sin before God and humanity. He recognizes that purity in heart is a characteristic of the saints, “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.” (Matthew 5:8, ESV) Yes, sin has its consequences and we need the loving power of God to renew our spirit as we are brought back to the right path, by His grace. Repentance and confession require humility, and they are the result of the work of the Holy Spirit in our hearts.
May God remind and impress our hearts today and always about His amazing plan of salvation to all His children, including you and I!
Please find below the kink for our latest stewardship video, “Led by God Through Family.” I am certain all of us will be blessed by it!
Please pray for our Youth Summer Camps starting tomorrow. Also, pray for Brian and the committed and faithful youth group working with him and for the presence and power of the Holy Spirit in every Summer Camp – all participants at Camp Hope this season.
In His Service,
Wesley Torres, D.Min.
