From Pastor Richard

It is great to be back!

I returned from Cambodia and Vietnam on Monday at 8:50 PM, grateful for what He did but very excited to be with my church family.  Please know that both Noemi and I are ever so grateful for so many of you who prayed for us while I was on this very important mission trip.  You continue to show your love for Christ and us.  I can truly say that I am proud to be your pastor.  And today I am ready to Preach His Word. 

The Church in Vietnam is so much like the Church in the Book of Acts.  Many coming to Jesus Christ, much power, much grace, wonderful miraculous works of God in spite of so much satanic opposition.  I am praying that the Holy Spirit will generate a spirit of Revival and Restoration in our family, church and land.

My prayer for us is expressed by Paul as he tells us to “Be careful, then, how you live - not as unwise but as wise,” (Ephesians 5:15).  This is critical since we are to ‘live a life worthy of the calling’ (4:1); ‘be imitators of God (5:1); ‘live as children of light’ (5:8); ‘making the most of every opportunity’ (5:16) and ‘understand what the Lord’s will is’ (5:17).

On another note… Thank you for listening and encouraging two young preachers as they preached in my absence.  Both Matthew Silvestre from Salinas and Rico Guerrero from Fresno (my son in law) felt so very blessed to be with you.

I’ve included some quotes from some men of God in  this bulletin.  Read.  Pray.  Think.  Imagine with me how it could and would be if indeed our church was made up of members filled with/controlled by the Holy Spirit *Ephesians 4 and 5.

A.W. Tozer made a pronouncement 50 years ago:

If the Holy Spirit was withdrawn from the church today, 95 percent of what we do would go on and no one would know the difference.  If the Holy Spirit had been withdrawn from the NT church (in Acts), 95 percent of what they did would stop, and everybody would know the difference.

God put His Spirit in us so we could be known for our power.  Sadly, most believers and churches are known for talent and intellect rather than supernatural power.  What’s worse is that we’re okay with it…I’m willing to bet there are millions of churchgoers across America who cannot confidently say they have experienced His presence or action in their lives over the pat year.  And many of them do not believe they can.  (Forgotten God - Reversing Our Tragic Neglect of the Holy Spirit)

We are seeing much today of service without the Spirit.  It is not what is done for God that counts, but rather what is done by Him.

God’s work must be done by God’s people God’s way.
Too many of us today are shaky about what we believe but not shaken by what we believe!
