Millie and I had a wonderful and full time this past week as we attended the annual Tikkun conference outside of Baltimore. There are over 25 congregations within the network here in the US, as well as 8 congregations in Israel, and it was a blessing to catch up with old friends and make new ones.The theme was RESTORE, and how we as individuals, families, and congregations are to live Biblically-Balanced lives in the midst of a sometimes hostile culture. One of the many challenges I heard was “It’s harder to CHANGE culture than to CREATE culture”, and yet that is what we are called to do! In line with this challenge, we will be be looking at Romans 12-13 and continuing on the subject of how to live as counter-cultural Believers with the mandate of love we have.
FOLLOWING THE MORNING SERVICE, THE BUSBY FAMILY WILL BE HOSTING A SPECIAL ONEG LUNCH TO RAISE SUPPORT FOR DAUGHTER KAILA AS SHE IS PREPARING TO MINISTER IN ISRAEL! WE WILL HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO BLESS HER AS SHE WILL BE LEAVING SHORTLY TO JOIN HAYOVEL FOR THE SUMMER, TO HELP IN THE HARVEST. THEY WILL BE PROVIDING ALL OF THE FOOD FOR OUR LUNCH, SO COME ON OUT AND SUPPORT THIS AWESOME YOUNG WOMAN OF GOD AS SHE FULFILLS THE CALLING GOD PUT ON HER HEART!
We have an exciting summer coming up, with special services and opportunities to bless the Front Range! Soon we will be going out to the streets of Golden blessing the city and praying for people as God brings divine appointments. Also, we will be having Jerry and Karen Ellard, Paul Wilbur, Chuck Pierce, and Dan Juster visiting with us and blessing us with their ministry and teaching over the summer weeks !
Rav Shaul says in Romans 13 “The night is almost gone and the day is near, so let us PUT OFF the works of darkness and PUT ON the armor of light.” I sense an urgency in my spirit, as do others, that those words uttered almost 2000 years ago are to be applied to our lives, so that our culture can be radically changed! Our Heavenly father has equipped us, through Yeshua and the Ruach HaKodesh, to not just stand against the powers of darkness, but to overwhelmingly conquer and take back territory that had been ceded to those powers of darkness. I am more convinced than ever that the only standard of truth we have is the Word of God, and that when we engage our new nature with His word BY FAITH, incredible things will happen! We have victory by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony.
We look forward to seeing all of you this Shabbat! We will be joining together to participate in the Lord’s Supper during the service so I want to encourage everyone to come on out for this very special time as we re-commission ourselves for HIS PURPOSES!
Blessings and Shabbat Shalom
