This past year of 2018 has been the best year spiritually that I've seen in all the years of singing and speaking ministry. God gave me the privilege of talking with thousands of people of their need for Jesus Christ in their lives. God also gave me the privilege of seeing many of these people give their dead self in trespasses and sins to the living resurrected Son of God. This was a very busy year of traveling. He again has shown His faithfulness.
Simply put, I desire to love Him more intimately than ever before. Any mistakes we have made in our lives this past year, our Lord is gentle to resotre and bring us back to utmost service to Him. After Peter denied His Lord, Jesus asked him, "Do you love Me?" Peter said, "Yes, Lord". Jesus does not belittle us, put us down, or humiliate us when we fail Him. Perhaps this past year you have denied Him by the way you live, or you disobeyed Him and were not faithful. Jesus asks: do you love Me? If your answer is yes, then He restores your fellowship with Him and forgives you. He will again bring you to the highest quality of service to Him than you've ever known!
He is faithful
Because He lives, I live
