The foundation of any congregation must be absolute surrender, devotion and obedience to God. Jesus Christ must be central in all things and His will must take precedence over the will of people.
To be a channel of the love of God, surrender yourself unconditionally to the guidance of the Holy Spirit, then you will be able to serve your community according to God’s will, and in love.
Holy Spirit, bring me to total surrender, devotion, and obedience to the God of love. Amen.
