GREETINGS FROM THE TEMPLE …
“You Are Appreciated!”
You are appreciated! I appreciate you! How many times have you said these very words or variations of these words to someone? These very words should flow consistently from your mouth. If you can count them, then you haven’t said them enough. To appreciate someone is to recognize their worth or value – be grateful for – be thankful for – be beholden to – treasure – admire. Where am I going with this? I’ve said all this to say: There is a man, a godly man, who exhibit all these traits and more.
“Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work.” – 1 Thess. 5:13 (NIV).
Rev. Victor S. Brice – Pastor – Shepherd – Teacher – Leader – Mentor – Anointed Man of God. He also holds the title of son – brother – husband – father – friend.
“Then I will give you shepherds after my own heart, who will lead you with knowledge and understanding.” – Jeremiah 3:15 (NIV).
I feel that this Scripture was written about our Pastor, Rev. Victor S. Brice, because this is who he is. He mirrors this Passage. His love for God – his love for the Word – his love for us – his knowledge of the Word. He cares about our spiritual well-being (our worldly well-being as well). He encourages us to stay in the Word – stay in prayer – live the Word – share the Word. He shares with us what God has given him. He is truly a shepherd after God’s own heart.
Faith – obedience – serving. This is how our shepherd, Pastor Victor S. Brice, operates. He is faithful to God and the Word of God. He is obedient to God and to His Word. He follows God’s instructions and shares what God has given him with us.
I would be remiss if I didn’t give all the praise and honor to God. Thank You, Lord, for sending us your angel in the guise of our shepherd, Pastor Victor S. Brice. Thank You, Merciful Father!
“We must be about pleasing God!” – Pastor Victor S. Brice
These are your very words – this is what you do. We must follow your lead in pleasing Him. God sent you to us. He is well pleased; “…I will give you shepherds after my own heart……”
I really appreciate you, Pastor Brice!
