Family Blessed to be a Blessing
Pastor Prince, since 2008 my entire family and I have been listening to your sermons daily via television, podcast, and YouTube.
I am 28 years old and have been saved since childhood. But it was only after hearing your sermons that I realized how I am no longer under the law and the 10 Commandments but under God’s grace. My boast is in Christ alone and in the grace that He has provided for me on the cross. This understanding has given me a new perspective on what it means to glory in the things of God, such as the forgiveness of sins and righteousness in Christ.
The Lord has blessed my family with 2 businesses—a thriving gymnastics program in Michigan and a tennis club in Florida that my brother and I operate. We not only see these businesses as job opportunities but also as ministries by which we can positively affect others for the Lord’s glory. So this year my family and I have chosen to pursue His wisdom, seeing ourselves as small in the eyes of God in order that He may do great things in us and through us.
As a professional tennis player and coach, I asked God to show me innovative ways to elevate my tennis game and develop the skills of my students so that all can see that the Lord is with me, causing me to be a success. And He has over answered my request.
Not only are both businesses growing, my brother and I are experiencing new levels of favor in our tennis games and coaching. We are now both high school tennis coaches for local schools in our area and we also recently won our first pro doubles tennis tournament together. God has been increasing our influence so that we can be a blessing to the community, especially our students.
I’ve also felt led to pursue godly wisdom and have been feeding on the Word of God, reading a chapter from the book of Proverbs every day. I play your messages on my phone in the day when I have time and before I sleep and have been praying in tongues too.
Each day is exciting for me as I live confidently in the grace of my Lord and Savior. Daily the Lord continues to give me innovative ideas and simple solutions to my problems. I am so grateful for the Lord who is on my side, causing me and my family to prosper in all things.
Thank you, Pastor Prince, for teaching the grace of God. It has greatly blessed my life, my family, and the lives of those around me for the glory of God!
