Remembering About a Time I went to My Church, And Seeing How The Heart And Passion of my Pastor Has Become Alive in The Past Few Years

I remember a service I went to The Calvary, a small Church located in Orlando, Florida, about five years ago; the general pastor came on stage and talked about the importance of being part of a church and talked about his experience when he was visiting Tommy Barnett’s church, in New York City. This was an experience he had twenty years ago and at that time he was surprised that that church was having about two hundred ministries serving the community. Pastor Barnett’s idea was to look for a need and find the way to satisfy that need. Pastor Nino told us his dream has been always to follow this church model. He states that a person grows when he or she puts his or her hands on the plow and is helpful to one another. The message was that we as Christians are a team representing Christ. Quoting Pablo in the book of second Corinthians 3:2 “Your lives are a letter written in our hearts; everyone can read it and recognize our good work among you.” People can read our actions, and our goal has to be part of the solution and not of the problem. God gives us gifts, and we should put those gifts to His service.
God is the one who give us life, health and resources. He blesses us and when we look first for His Kingdom, everything else falls in place. The pastor quoted 3 John 1:2 ¨Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers and be in good health.” The message at that time was so interesting, but what is most interesting is how pastor Nino followed Pastor Barnett’s model. And thanks to his courage, perseverance and action, and with God’s favor and grace, The Calvary is becoming a big church that has about five thousand members.
