  • After I was ordained and started preaching I thought that God would bless our church so much that we would have a big congregation.
    But you know, God had another idea. He did not think we were ready for a big congregation.
    The best thing about God is if you will listen to him, he always knows what is best.
    When we dedicated our church to God, we told him with a humble heart that we wanted him to be the leader of our church and we would follow him.
    The amazing thing is that Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to dwell in our church.
