We thank God for his faithful provision that has made theological training accessible to Colombian pastors through the ministry of Reformed Baptist Seminary and its international training program. With God's blessing, we have completed the eighth theological module entitled "A Theology of the Covenants." Pastor Salvador Gomez of La Iglesia Biblical del Señor Jesucristo served as our instructor. The module was a great time for reunion and communion with the pastors of several cities in Colombia who are taking the program.
My heart resonates with David when he declares in Psalm 4, “You have put gladness in my heart, more than when their grain and new wine abound.” Certainly, God has been exceedingly merciful and gracious to me in Christ. I give thanks to God for Jesus Christ and the manifold and eternal blessings that I experience in Him. I am not certain of the exact time of my salvation, but believe that when I was nine years old, God, in accordance with His great mercy, caused me "to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead" (1 Pet 1:3).
God created man for worship. Jesus declared that the Father is seeking worshippers who will worship Him "in spirit and truth" (John 4:23-24). Not surprisingly, the Shorter Catechism begins by affirming, "Man’s chief end is to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever." But this raises the question, “How should God be worshiped?” To be more precise, “What kind of worship pleases God?” The answer is vital. Thankfully, it's not that complicated. Even a child may understand.
