I’ve said this before and I will say it again, never say “never”. I guess that will be my testimony for years to come! You would think I would have known better and learned from my past statements. You see, when I was younger, the last thing that I ever wanted to be was to be a pastor. My father, grandfather, great-grandfather and uncles were all pastors. Catch my drift? I wanted to do “other” things in my life and pursue other opportunities. So when I said the word “never”, I’m pretty sure the Lord had a good laugh and said to the angels sitting next to Him, “Watch this!” Come to think of it, I should have said, “I will never have a beach ministry on the islands of Hawaii!”
Of course I praise the Lord that He has allowed me the greatest calling, blessing and privilege to do what He does- Shepherd. I am honored to be called “pastor’, but even greater to be called a child of the Most High God. Last Sunday (June 5th), my family and I had our first Sunday as pastor of Mighty Fortress Christian Fellowship. The excitement on that day was incredible, the worship from the hearts of the people was powerful, and the vision and direction of the church was laid out as simple as possible. What was that vision? Love God and love your neighbor. After all, those two things are the greatest commandments given to us from our Lord. No hype, no extravagant presentation, just God’s word coming alive to a hungry people!
I’m looking forward to our ministry at Mighty Fortress Christian Fellowship and thank everyone for your prayers, support and encouraging words. If you live in or around the San Antonio area and are not attending a church, come and worship with us. Or if you happen to be in town and looking for a church to worship with while your here in beautiful San Antonio, we would love to have you as our guests. God is doing some amazing things in this congregation. Come and see that the Lord is good!
