I am so excited to introduce this blog. We have been praying about an ongoing way to encourage you all. The goal of this web page is just that. Encouragement. The dictionary uses words like, inspire, stimulate, advance, and foster to describe what encouragement is. That helps us see what it is. Now the question is, how? If you have been in or around the family of Gospel Community Church, my prayer is that you know we love Jesus and His Word and that is our greatest source of encouragement. In these posts, may you see Jesus. May you be encouraged through His words. May you encourage others with His words.
For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus, that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 15:4-6 ESV)
May these posts bring glory to God.
