June 2019 – Partner Update
Through your gifts you and I together are loving people to life.
My message this month is a testimony of how God’s grace was revealed in my life in these last weeks. I am not merely reporting as a history of what has happened to me, but rooting it in Scripture that we might all know the grace that is ours wherever we are. Enough to say here that His love that is ours by sheer gift is vaster, deeper and greater than I had ever imagined. I do not say that lightly, but out of the experience of having tasted and felt the goodness, kindness, gentle tenderness and compassion of God in my experience of life in this present set of circumstances. It is in this love experienced that we receive the unbounded grace and strength to go through whatever we are presently facing.
I will be in Alvin, Texas – in the Houston area – August 4th this year…just a few days from now. I will speaking at the 10 a.m. service and the 6 p.m. service and it will be two different messages that link together as one whole. The phone number for details is 832-746-6166; the address is Believers Fellowship of Alvin meeting in the Nolan Ryan Center, 2925 S. Bypass 35, Alvin TX 77511.
Our Bible School – Module 1 Union with the Triune God will be held on October 11-12 and will be in Boerne, TX. Because of the cancellation of the original date it gives time for you to join us. There is still time – call the office today!
Our annual retreat will be at the Inn of the Hills in Kerrville, December 6-8, 2019. The subject is Radical Transforming Grace. I hear hundreds talking, preaching about the grace of God but have little knowledge of the radical revolutionary nature of His grace that makes us whole in our total person and plunges us into a life lived in the fellowship of the Trinity! I will be sharing six hours of teaching on this subject that tragically is almost unknown in many areas. Plan now to be with us and secure your place – call the office or register online today!
All further details you can get by calling our office at (830) 460-4000. There are a number of other plans that are being worked on that I will be talking to you about as the months unfold. Our series from this past retreat in June “Living in the Fullness of God” is now available on CD. Order by phone or online at www.malcolmsmith.org.
Again let me thank you for your love and your love gifts in the last weeks. Your greatest gifts in the last week have been your prayers and cards and tangible expression of your love to me in this time of loss. I had planned to answer everyone but the pile has become a mountain of cards and letters and it would be impossible to answer everyone so please accept this as my thanks which is directed at all personally.
And thank you for your monthly love gifts. You enable us to continue sharing the life transforming news of the love of God. Let me say with force– your giving is not merely dollars to support an organization. Every dollar that you send is the love of God clothed in finances and wrapped in prayer – the gift of your life joined to the Holy Spirit and sent forth to world. You and I, along with every other partner do more together than either of us could do alone in our wildest dreams. In your monthly giving you are part of my voice carrying God’s love in Christ in the power of the Spirit to the world.
