Jesus Christ says: I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and hell. (Rev 1:18)
If you are called to preach this holiday, may the triune God give you joy and strength, enthusiasm and wisdom, knowledge and insight – and the true words and pictures to preach his holy will faithfully according to his most precious revelation of his will and promises in both the Old and New Testament! However if you are not preaching, but listening – then listen as if God is talking to you + His precious gospel is “the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes.” (Rom 1:16 NIV)
