The services at the Igreja Batista Vitória on Sunday, February 14 were a blessing. In the morning service the Lord helped me to preach on the subject "Compassion for souls” using Matthew 9:36, “But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd."
In the evening service the Lord laid a message on my heart about living a “Crucified” life, using Romans 6:1-11, and Galatians 2:20, “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” KJV
In the Portuguese version of the Bible Galatians 2:20 states: “I am already crucified with Christ…” implying that Paul was dead to the Law, the World and to Sin – now!
The Holy Spirit moved in the service and several folks came to the alter to pray and others knelt to pray on their bench. It was one of those services that you long to happen every Sunday! Then we finished by celebrated the Lord’s Supper followed by a time of fellowship.
To God be honor and glory for all the great things He has done!
