With Candidates’ Council today, we added seven more Accepted Candidates to the next session of Cadets at our College For Officer Training. Hallelujah!
Listening to their testimonies and declarations of their calling by God simply blesses my heart and encourages me in the journey of serving in The Salvation Army. They speak of life long calling from other denominations to our work and their joy of discovering that the opportunity to serve in The Salvation Army is a fulfillment of God’s voice in their heart long before they knew anything about the ‘Army.’ It’s a thrill.
We hear again of faithful parents and Local Officers. We’re reminded of special events on the SA calendar where God got through to them. We are blessed to learn that their simple steps of faith have brought them to the place where they are certain of God’s leading to officership.
Some are brand new to the movement and others come from generations of faithful Salvationists.
There must be more for us to do. Oh Yes!
Come, let’s shout praises to God, raise the roof for the Rock who saved us! Let’s march into his presence singing praises, lifting the rafters with our hymns!
Psalm 95:1-2 MSG
