Welcome to “In His Praise!”
“I always thank my God as I remember you in my prayers…” Philemon 1:4
Today was Pastor Appreciation Day at East Point C.P. Church and this verse came to mind. It is a blessing to be have a dedicated, God-called minster in our church. His job is not always easy and I am sure he spends countless hours praying and studying and preparing sermons, not to mention the time spent visiting the sick, counseling the troubled and witnessing to those that are lost. All this and more for seemingly little or no reward. It can be discouraging, difficult and stressful.
But for a truly God-called minster the reward is not found in material things. It is rather found in knowing that the gospel is being preached, seeds are being planted and that lives are being changed for God. The joy is found in serving God.
Rev. Phil Nickles is such a minster. He is excited to serve the Lord and is preaches the gospel as God leads him. He is filled with Holy Spirit and it shows in the way he lives each day- always ready to help, always ready to witness, always ready to pray with you and for you.
Today we thank God for you, Bro. Phil, and pray that God will continue to bless you and your family as you endeavor to serve Him.
