"This Isn't What I Wanted To Be" By Pastor B
I just want to take a moment to acknowledge and welcome the new members of the Christlike Ministries NWA Family. I am well aware that there are better blogs and ministries than mine, and for you to like mine is further confirmation that I'm doing exactly what God has called me to do. Thanks to all of you for becoming a part of just a ministry, but a family of believers that desire more than anything to be conformed more and more to the image of Jesus Christ.
A few days a go, a friend of mine from high school posted a picture, and as I read it…I heard the Lord say that it was time to get back to writing on my blog, and that the topic of the picture would be the topic to get us going again. This is our first series and message back, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I've enjoyed writing it.
Our first message back is about leaving room for God. In order to write it...I first had to relearn doing it. I think this will be a message we will all really enjoy.
"For The Sake Of The Call" - In this message I talk a little more about my own calling.
