Being Strong in NYC
Saturday, March 18 men from the five boroughs and surrounding counties gathered together to worship, witness and encourage one another in the Lord. Greater New York division celebrated a Regional Men’s Ministry Day. The theme for the regional meeting in Astoria Corps was ‘Being Strong – at work, at home, in fitness’. The scripture verses found in Philippians 4:11-13 were my verses that morning. Most know verse 13, a cherished verse for strength, “I can do all this through him who gives me strength”. However, I looked at the verses together and saw what Paul’s tweet would have been: “I have learned who gives me strength”.
Jesus is the author of life as well as strength, and trusting in Him we can learn that through all circumstances in life His strength is sufficient and without fail. God blessed us as we gathered to consecrate and ask Him to renew our strength! Special thanks to Greg Tuck, our keynote speaker, Major Phil Wittenberg, Divisional Secretary / Men’s Ministry Secretary, and Captains Germain for hosting the men at Astoria Corps.
