Pastoral Epistle – August 16, 2023
Beloved Congregation,Greetings in Jesus!
“Incline your ear, and come to Me. Hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you— The sure mercies of David.” Isaiah 55:3
When we make a covenant with God to follow Him faithfully; He makes an everlasting covenant with us … it is the everlasting covenant of king David. We are encouraged to live in the covenant of king David.
