Thank you Pastor for your undying love for God's flock

Being called to become a pastor and shepherd God’s flock is no easy feat. It entails great wisdom, dedication, commitment, perseverance, and of course, the Holy Spirit, to really encourage, motivate, rebuke, lead, empower, and guide people to the righteousness of Jesus Christ.

It is with extreme joy and gladness that I thank all the pastors in the Philippines and around the globe, for their undying love to God’s flock, and for showing and reminding us of His love for all eternity. Thank you for your patience and endurance. Thank you for your unselfish love. Thank you for your willingness to listen to us no matter what time of day it is, despite having your own challenges in your family and ministry. Thank you for helping us study God’s Word.

It is my prayer that you continue to share with us God’s Love and Grace, and His Words—and that you continue to obey Him no matter the cost. I leave you with these verses: “The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace” (Numbers 6:24–26) and “If you obey the commandments of the Lord your God that I command you today, by loving the Lord your God, by walking in his ways, and by keeping his commandments and his statutes and his rules, then you shall live and multiply, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land that you are entering to take possession of it.” (Deuteronomy 30:16)

Thank you, our dear pastors. May His light shine and His grace be upon you and your family always—for here and eternity.
