April 2012 – LIVING AS IF THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS MAKES A DIFFERENCE!

LIVING AS IF THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS MAKES A DIFFERENCE!

Last Sunday, April 8, was a beautiful, holy day – celebrating the victorious, eternal resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ! And now, as we move forward in these next days…weeks…months…years, how will you prepare for what comes after Easter? What will you hold onto of what you know? Of what you believe?Will the gift of God’s love-without-limits, even to the point of death, and the transforming-forgiving-freeing grace of Jesus make any real and observable, active and intentional difference in the way you think, speak, act and interact?

Oh! It is meant to!

“Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” – Ephesians 5:1-2

“If anyone obeys His word, God’s love is truly made complete in him. This is how we know we are in Him: Whoever claims to live in in Him must walk as Jesus did.” – 1 John 2:5-6

Celebrating the resurrection of Jesus is not to be just a one day affair. It is to be the most passionate, persistent, purposed-filled focus of our whole lives! Because Jesus is our Life, and offered His freely for each of us!

Current Events and Happenings to be lifting in Prayer!

  • We are Preparing and Pre-prayering for the upcoming ministry trip to Indiana.

Got Grace Effects?” Please join us in PRAYER for God to prepare everyone present, at both the retreat and the worship service, to be open to His Unfailing Love and Transforming Grace to have deep and lasting effects on all of us as we become more and more like Jesus to all those around us!

Purposeful Ways to Serve Together in Active, Tangible Love!

  • Please PRAY about becoming a sponsor of a child via Compassion International! You will be blessed as much or more as you bless the child you sponsor! You may go directly to the CI website, www.compassion.com to sponsor a child to help “free them from poverty in Jesus’ Name” OR you may contact us at the TBG office at: 215.497.0882, Info@transformedbygrace.org. Sylane has been given a number of packets for precious children waiting for sponsors! Maybe one is waiting for you!
  • Please PRAY about becoming a Partner in Grace – our PinG – with Transformed by Grace! Your financial and prayer support of this ministry makes a difference in the lives of many – and allows us to share the grace and truth of Jesus Christ in both the intimacy of the counseling relationship and in the publicly presented conferences – locally, nationally and internationally! We, with you, are the Body of Christ – and your gifts supply and support what we do in much needed ways! To become a PinG now, please sign up on our Partner in Grace page on the TBG site OR contact the TBG office at: 215.497.0882, Info@transformedbygrace.org.
