In the evening of Mid-America Reformed Seminary’s Seminary Sunday, I was honored, privileged and blessed to serve another feast of the gospel of God with another precious congregation of Christ in New Jersey—Grace Orthodox Presbyterian Church in Hamilton Township.
- In Genesis 1, our sole Creator is Elohim (plural)—Father, Son and Holy Spirit, infinitely greater and more powerful than all the gods (elohim) of Egypt and all pagan nations combined.
- In John 1, Christ is God, Elohim, infinite in greatness and power, God of salvation, healing, provision and all things in heaven and on earth.
- In Christ, who is God, Elohim, infinite in greatness and power, the new creation has begun and is guaranteed to be consummately fulfilled.
After the service, congregation member Patricia Knight Carr posted on her Facebook page, “Pastor from the Philippines at church tonight was very good.”
I am humbled and encouraged to know that, despite of my many weaknesses and failures, the Lord still uses me to build up His people through the preaching and ministry of His word.
May the Lord continue to nurture and grow this church family for His kingdom and glory.
