By Pastor Glem Melo

Glem MeloI was requested by my professors at Mid-America Reformed Seminary, to preach in two (2) of the institution’s partner churches in New Jersey as part of its annual Seminary Sunday project.  One of them was at Newton Covenant Reformed Church, the congregation of the United Reformed Churches in North America (URCNA) in Newton, NJ.  It was such a joy and privilege for me to have been given the opportunity to preach Christ and minister His Gospel to the brothers and sisters there.

Creator, Re-Creator, New Creation

Genesis 1

Where is hope?  The Holy Spirit prods us to look up.  God is the answer.  He is our hope.  He is both the Creator and the New Creator.  And we fix our eyes on Him.

Genesis 1 speaks of how creation was mission impossible, and that it was only possible because of God with whom nothing is impossible.  And this is how he created all things.

1. God created all things out of nothing.

2. God created all things by His Spirit.

3. God created all things by His word.

Please pray for the precious congregation of Christ in Newton, New Jersey.

About Glem Melo

I am a believer and follower of Christ, happily married, and have 3 wonderful kids. I am the founder and CEO of Open Eyes Mission, under the care of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) Chicago Metro Presbytery, pastoral intern at Faith Church in Dyer, Indiana, and studying Master of Divinity at Mid-America Reformed Seminary. The Bible teaches that God is real, man is sinful, hell is real, and Jesus is our only hope of salvation. I believe these truths with all of my heart, and I hope to help others learn of them as well. "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16) May God give you grace and peace.
