From Pastor Tim: Trust…Delight…Commit

Posted by cog7owosso on January 14, 2008


TRUST…DELIGHT…COMMIT…    There are some verses in Psalm 37 that have these words trailed by great promises and wonderful blessings! To consider that you and I can live full, rich lives here-now, who wouldn’t step up to that opportunity?


We can count on God to provide for our every need, in every area of our life. God desires good for all of us, He finds no pleasure in our pain. Listen to this, God even says”…I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked…”(Eze.33:11) His desire is that they turn from evil and do good. Why? To live, be sustained, to live prosperously! God is ready and waiting to bless you and to bless me. He will feed us from the riches of glory, can you believe? Do Right – Rely on Him. (TRUST)


Think with me for a minute…the desires of my heart – what are they? How awesome it would be to realize all the desires of my heart! Well, the goals that we’ve set, things to attain, places to go, all that we want to achieve, God promises to give us the desires of our heart. Maybe we should make a list, “things to see accomplished”, then follow the scripture and begin to JOY in the Lord. Look out though, as we find ourselves truly enjoying God, He not only gives us the desire of our heart He causes those desires to conform to His will.(DELIGHT)


To dedicate our lives to God, simple to speak – easy to write, does anyone else out there have trouble with the follow through? Even considering those great promises and wonderful blessings I mentioned before, it’s still a challenge to lean always to the way of the Lord. Oh that the benefit would strongly draw us, draw our “way”(Ps.37:5, actions & behavior) to the way of God. Here is what I’m thinking, and we can all do this…lets establish this as our predetermined choice…to cast all that we are, our complete self, upon God.(COMMIT)

Mens Retreat: March 14 -16, 2008

Posted by cog7owosso on January 1, 2008

mens-ministry.jpgA lot of us have done things in our lives that we’re ashamed of. Some are small things, and some of us have really big and devastating things. Some of us even have things that people close to us don’t know about. Personal junk that we keep to ourselves so we don’t have to deal with it…because we don’t know how to deal with it, do we? We’re afraid that if we try it’s just going to make everything worse. But no matter how big our junk is, no matter how much what we’ve done has impacted the way other people feel about us or how we feel about ourselves, it hasn’t changed how God feels about us. God loves us, he always has and always will, and there’s nothing we can do to change that.

Audiences around the world have noted the convincing manner in which the Spirit uses him to clarify tough biblical issues.

God anointed him to conduct many crusades over the years, which gave birth to several new congregations.  This manservant has also been the channel of many glorious miracles of deliverance seen in the body of Christ. 

Pastor Abrigo began his academic training in Evangelism at Caribbean Union College, and was ordained in 1976, before migrating to North America. Once here, he continued his education at Columbia Union College, Maryland, in the fields of Education and Theology. This training enabled him to develop and write a curriculum designed to help lay members and pastors acquire the techniques of successful evangelism and church management, which was used by several congregations. He is currently pursuing studies in Philosophy and Christian Apologetics.

Committed to a demanding travel schedule, Evangelist Abrigo has conducted crusades in Jamaica, St. Kitts, St. Lucia, St. Thomas, Antigua, Philadelphia and New York. He has also served for many years as Director of Church Growth and Ministerial Development in the Eastern Caribbean. Writing and lecturing are also included in his life work.
