“My desire as a pastor is that each believer ‘grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ’ (II Peter 3:18). As the writer says in the book of Hebrews 12:2-3 , ‘fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of faith, who for the joy set before Him, endured the cross, despising the shame and has set down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider Him who has endured such hostility by sinners, against Himself, so you will not grow weary and lost heart.’ Our focus must be on Christ and His finished work on the cross! It is all about Christ.”
