I FEEL like my “rich uncle” just inherited me $1 million because a pastor just gave me some of the awesomest disciples on the planet. I’m not sure what leasing problems Pastor Matt Sinkhorn had that twisted his arm into closing in the City of San Fernando. Since he was moving to Lancaster (farther north) and I was opening in the Lighthouse Church Van Nuys (pretty close) with the Christian Fellowship Ministries, he gave me his high-class church members.
I was expecting to preach to my family for a year or two while we outreached and waiting for souls to come in. Then all of sudden, I get a phone call and I learn of the windfall.
So Pastor Matt gave me a huge jump start on church planting — yeah, like five years of work. How can I not stop praising Jesus? And how can I not thank Pastor Matt?
Actually people are much more valuable than money, so the $1M figure comes up short. I won the lottery. I got a grandslam in the world series. I scored a bicycle kick in a championship game.
Praise God from Whom all blessings flow!
“And a little child shall lead them” Isaiah 11:6
“Before she was in labor she gave birth; before her pain she was delivered of a son. Who has heard of such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall a land be born in one day? Shall a nation be brought forth in one moment? Shall I bring to the birth and not cause to bring forth? Rejoice and be glad for her, all you who love her; rejoice with her in joy…drink deeply with delight from the abundance of her glory…I will extend prosperity to her like a river, wealth like an overflowing stream…see and your heart rejoice, your bones flourish like the new grass; and it shall be known that the hand of the LORD is with his servant Pastor Ashcraft!” Isaiah 66:7-14
I rejoice with you and the church, Christ Jesus’ body and one Spirit!!!!!!! To God be the glory now and forever and ever Amen!
Praise the LORD! Yes, the life of people is better than millions of dollars! You are rich indeed!
