Another year has passed on in our journey to the Kingdom of God. Some of our church and biological family members have moved on ahead of us into the presence of the Lord. While we yet remain here on earth, we still however, belong to the Lord. None of us lives to himself and none of us will die to himself according to Romans 14:7. Furthermore, we should be assured through the word of God that says “whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s.” (Romans 14:8, King James Version)
As children of the Almighty God and members of the True Love Missionary Baptist Church, we have been placed in a position to carry the blood stained banner of Christ Jesus during our 73rd year as a symbol of our dedication, commitment, loyalty and gratitude to the Blessed Savior. There is a blessing in serving God and I constantly pray that each of our church family members be given the desires of their hearts as we continue to march on to beautiful Zion, that place of eternal bliss.
We are making strides on a daily basis, but the journey is not over for us. Romans 13:12 says, “The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.” Each of us has encountered moments of darkness through this journey of life, but the Lord has been with us every moment. By knowing that the Lord Jesus Christ is our strength in times of weakness, we can boldly take authority over the works that try to keep us in darkness and put on the armor that illuminates every fiber of our being to reveal the strength of the True Love within each of us as we represent Christ Jesus. I love you, TLMBC family. God Bless.
Yours because of Christ Jesus, Dr. Herbert. B. Robinson, Jr.
