The beginning of the week found us high up on a mountain, overlooking the city where we live. Along with a visiting friend and intercessor, we braved the wind to pray over the city and proclaim the Father’s truth in this place.

Salvation Evidenced by the Spirit

Leviticus 7-9; Acts 15

“God, who knows the heart, showed that he accepted them by giving the Holy Spirit to them, just as he did to us…We believe it is through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ that we are saved, just as they are.” Acts 15:8, 11

The work of the Holy Spirit in our lives is a sign that we belong to Jesus. The work and presence of the Holy Spirit is an expression of the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ in our lives. The work of the Holy Spirit in our lives is a sign that we are saved. The early church discerned that it was not obedience to the ceremonial law of Moses that was required to earn God’s favor, but acceptance of God’s gift of forgiveness of sins, in Christ, evidenced by the gift of the Holy Spirit at work, transforming the believer from the inside out. When the manifest presence of the Holy Spirit’s work is not evidenced in a person’s life, the questions must be asked, “Have they received God’s salvation by faith? Are they saved?”

“Lord Jesus, thank you for your grace, your salvation and the Holy Spirit. I offer myself to you and to your kingdom purposes today.”

Cory & Masami Giesbrecht
“As we look back over the past year, we praise God for his provision. He guided us to Osaka, Japan, and he provided help as we adjusted to a new community and our children adjusted to Japanese schools. We thank God that he is giving us many ministry opportunities in our community through the young adults’ group at Ishibashi MB Church, families from our children’s schools and Cory’s language school. Pray that young people in our MB Ishibashi Church will be called to a deeper level of surrender to Jesus in 2016. Pray that we will be a part of multiplying discipleship groups in our church and in our community. Pray that our children will flourish in their new environment, and that our family relationships will grow stronger in Jesus.”

All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. ~ Matthew 28:18-20
