From the Office of the Chairman:
To the FG Pastors, Clergy and Church,
Today the words of Christ as recorded in John Chapter 17 as our Lord prayed to our Father God ring in my ear. He prayed…… ‘Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;……..As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.” Oh, how beautiful a reminder to see here today. To know that our Savior, in the hours just prior to his going to the cross of Calvary, he prayed for you to be as He was, consecrated and dedicated before God the Father, in order that your testimony and word, would bring others to a faith to believe upon Him.
As you, his servants, prepare to bring the children of God to a mighty celebration of his resurrection, his salvation, his grace and mercy, be reminded that you are his, and he is glorified in you!! In following the command to give the gospel to all the world, Christ is exalted and magnified through your every word to his people. You are being kept by the name of our Father Almighty! In this great season of celebration, let us raise our voice before our God, giving way to a praise for our Lord Jesus, our risen Savior.
May his joy be fulfilled in you!
– Pastor Simeon Strauser
