The Commissioning of the Disciples of the Cross session of Cadets on Sunday was a wonderful event. God filled the occasion with wonder, love and challenge. Many people were saved. Thousands were online from 50+ countries. 120 presented themselves for officership. 57 Cadets were commissioned. Hallelujah!
These new Lieutenants accepted their first appointments with grace. They have studied, prayed, worked and loved their way through 22 months of classes and experiences. They are well trained and ready for service. I thank God for each of them.

“God makes everything come out right; he puts victims back on their feet. He showed Moses how he went about his work, opened up his plans to all Israel. God is sheer mercy and grace; not easily angered, he’s rich in love. He doesn’t endlessly nag and scold, nor hold grudges forever. He doesn’t treat us as our sins deserve, nor pay us back in full for our wrongs. As high as heaven is over the earth, so strong is his love to those who fear him. And as far as sunrise is from sunset, he has separated us from our sins. As parents feel for their children, God feels for those who fear him. He knows us inside and out, keeps in mind that we’re made of mud. Men and women don’t live very long; like wildflowers they spring up and blossom, But a storm snuffs them out just as quickly, leaving nothing to show they were here. God’s love, though, is ever and always, eternally present to all who fear him, Making everything right for them and their children as they follow his Covenant ways and remember to do whatever he said.”
