Today, we have appointment and inauguration of 42 deacons and 18 exhorters. 60 men and women of God will be starting ministry with a new resolution and determination. Deacons have been studying with associate professors for three weeks. They studied in the first week, "the appointed duty / United Methodist Church Doctrine and the Book of Discipline" (Rev. Shin, Tae Gyu) , second week, “What is the Church / Life and Spirituality" (Rev. Bae, Se Jin), and the third week,  "What is the Bible / Leader?" (Rev. Kwon, Taehong).  

The exhorters have been studying with me. They studied theology, organization and theology of the United Methodist Church, History of the United Methodist Church, Church History, Bible, Church, Life and Spirituality, Leadership, Worship and Sacrament.  Each 90-minute session was fast paced and everyone actively participated with serious questions and discussions.  Last week, they had written exams and were interviewed with other church pastors invited from the area. It isn’t easy to become a deacon or an exhorter, is it?   I have studied with them for three weeks and I got to know them very well and during the interview I was so proud of them for being so well-prepared.

As I prayed for them this week, my heart was filled with Apostle Paul’s prayer for the church of Ephesus.

“14 For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15 from whom every family[a] in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” (Ephesians 3:14 to 19)

 I kneel before God and pray for these 60 men and women of God.

I pray that God may pour out His Holy Spirit every day and strengthen their  inner beings.

I pray that in whatever they do, in whatever circumstance, they  would have Christ in their hearts and live in obedience to His will.  

I pray that they may understand, experience and grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ and their spiritual life be firmly rooted and never be shaken.

I pray that the wisdom, power, love, and grace of our God may richly be  with all of you and your family forever.
