FROM THE DESK OF THE PASTOR —
REV. KEVIN HUNTE:
For every time you eat this bread and drink this cup, you are [symbolically] proclaiming [the fact of] the Lord’s death until He comes [again].
1 Corinthians 11:26 AMP
Last month we celebrated our annual Missions Convention which focused us on the direct mission of Abundant Life Assembly. This month of March, we will celebrate our 40th anniversary of existence as a local Assembly under the banner of God’s faithfulness. Today, we celebrate the Lord’s Supper as is customary in our fellowship every first Sunday of the month.
I humbly suggest to us this morning that these three things are in fact one. We must desire to see God, we must pursue being like Jesus, we must crave being filled with the Holy Spirit so that we can make His name known and advance His Kingdom here on the earth.
So as we participate in Communion today, let’s endeavor to ask the Lord to so fill us that everyday we will IN FACT PROCLAIM the Lord’s death and resurrection and as the Spirit convicts and draws men and women into the Kingdom, let us ask the Holy Spirit for the desire and anointing to disciple them.
As we celebrate God’s faithfulness to us as an Assembly this month, let us earnestly seek Him for help so that we can say that by His grace we have been faithful to Him and to His Commission which is our mission in all the earth.
On behalf of the Pastoral team, the Presbytery, the staff of ALA and our families, Happy, Happy, Happy Anniversary. May God anoint us all afresh and use us for His honour and glory.
