Hearing the Word

Recently we had the privilege of hearing God’s Word from Pastor Sergio in Guayama, PR. We heard about faithfulness from St. Paul’s second letter to Timothy. He tells us how he wants to see his friend and student “so that I may be filled with joy.” Faithfulness does that. It fills others with joy. There is joy in a laborer for the Lord when he sees faithfulness demonstrated in one of his spiritual children. There is even greater joy when we see the faithfulness demonstrated by our loving Savior in his redemptive work and in his precious promises to us. “I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him for that day.” (2 Timothy 1:12)
Pastor Sergio (on the right) was just installed as the president of the IELC (Confessional Evangelical Lutheran Church) of Puerto Rico. We pray that God grand him faithfulness in this new opportunity for service in God’s kingdom.
