To quote from the GDOP Strategy:
The primary purpose we gather is for the glory of Christ and the blessing of the nations. To seek God and exalt His Son for one reason only, because He is worthy. The day is approaching when everything will be subject to His glory. We are motivated by who He is not what we will get from our coming togetherAs the coordinator for this region of Manitoba it is easy to feel as if I am run ragged and stretched thin, but I turn again and again to the words of Paul which remind me:
And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Galatians 6:9 NKJVI am excited to see where the Lord will lead us this year as we gather in His name.
Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious oil upon the head, running down on the beard, the beard of Aaron, running down on the edge of his garments. It is like the dew of Hermon, descending upon the mountains of Zion; for there the LORD commanded the blessing— Life forevermore. Psalm 133:1-3 NKJV
I will be updating with reports of our gatherings, but instead of just reading, why not find out where there might be gatherings in your area. For those of you in the Parkland Region of Manitoba, please contact me and join us.
