Hear What Andy Says

The Bible study I am a part of with Our Father’s House nourishes me greatly. Being surrounded by godly men who are seeking to grow closer to Christ keeps me focused on God and His will for me. It also has formed some great friendship bonds that are more real than anything I could have imagined. I have learned that it’s not about me, it’s what pleases God. When we stay in His word, Study His word, pray giving Him all the Praise and Glory, and worship together, it results in giving God pleasure. Faith grows and grows when we do this. It is Faith, not works, that secures our place in Heaven with Christ. The Bible Study we enjoy on Tuesday night assures me of this. We just finished the book of Romans and Paul tells us this repeatedly. As a new Creation in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17) I am now armed to be a disciple of Christ so I can minister to others. I now get to bask in God’s glory. He gives me joy. I now know happiness is based upon circumstances but joy only comes from the Lord. I get it now and it is good. God has the reins, He is my King.
