God has placed such a desire in my heart for training people in discipleship. It seems that since the beginning of the year, God has placed an even greater burden for this area. I feel that it is absolutely essential for the survival and advancement of the Kingdom of God. God has called each and every believer to be a disciple and to make disciples.

With this burden, I have decided to begin a discipleship class on Wednesday evenings. The class will be called Life 101. I am so excited about this new class and can not wait to get it started. The start up date is May 6. We are going to begin this journey by first defining what a disciple is and then we are going to work on how to disciple others. Please keep us in prayer as we begin this new class.

Finally, I can not begin to say how much God has blessed in our services lately. There has been such a freedom in our worship services and a deeper level of worship by our people. It is so exciting and refreshing. I agree with David when he said, "I was glad when they said unto me, let us go into the house of the Lord."

Easter is such a wonderful time of the year. For Christians, it is one of the most important days of the year. Here in Tulsa, Easter was a very wet day rain pretty much all day. It seems that the weather effected our attendance and the children had to hunt Easter eggs inside the church.

In spite of the weather, the service went very well. People were blessed and the Spirit of the Lord moved in a wonderful way. Just goes to show you that God can move in any circumstances and weather has noting to do with His moving. I know that God has wonderful plans for our church and I am believing that we will be running over 100 by the end of the year. Please pray that Freedom Life Church of God will work toward the mission God gave us - Life Growing Strong.

Being Busy

Man, does life ever keep us busy. Many times we are so busy that we can not even rest well at night simply from staying busy in our minds thinking about all the stuff we have to do. The sheep we count turn into projects that need to get done or people we need to write or papers we need to get done.

I think that God is not pleased with all the "stuff" we have running around in our minds. The "stuff" crowds out His will and way for our life. He wants us to set time aside to spend alone with Him. He wants us to talk to him (pray) and in turn He will speak to us through His word.

Let's put forth the effort to remove the stuff so that we can spend quality time with our Father. He loves us so much He wants to spend time alone with us, so we He can talk with us. For He told us, "I know the plans I have for you..."

I hope everyone has a wonderful week in the Lord! God Bless each of you!
