I just finished up a mens retreat with a few Calvary Chapels in the South East of Florida. The theme of the conference was "Follow Me" taken from Luke 9. It was wonderful time. the Lord did a great work and it was an honor to share with the men who were hungry for the Word of God. We looked at three things.
1. Following: Responding to the Call to Follow,
2. Fighting: Being Victorious in the Battle as we follow.
3. Finishing: having started well, we want to finish well.
Coming back to Florida is always a blessing. For me its like coming back to Gilgal, or Bethel. By the way those were two important places for the children of Israel. Basically it is a place of remembrance. A place where I reflect upon the amazing miracle of our first church plant. All the memories of Gods faithfulness quickly come back in to my mind. I also realize how quickly time goes by. When I travel it also gives me a chance to see things from a different perspective. when I am removed from my normal surroundings it provides some clarity and times of prayer.
I will be back in the pulpit tomorrow morning. there is no where I would rather teach than in our own fellowship in San Juan. Anyway... thats all for now I need a cup of coffee. Hope to be writing some more consistently perhaps with a little more to say.. love you guys.. PJ
