As London was being born yesterday this song was playing (click audio player above) by Christ for the Nations (on their Glorious album…which I highly recommend). The words:

Look at the way the flowers bloom for you
They want to show you their beauty Lord…
Running waters dance,
You and I romance
Unto You be all the glory…

My London Son

I AM ONE PROUD DADDY! Tonight my 3rd child (and second son) was born. London Sky Kolenda came into the world at 10:15 PM. He is a big boy weighing 8ibs 10oz and measuring 22 1/2 inches. Rebekah’s labor was extremely smooth and easy…an answer to prayer. We are rejoicing and looking forward to getting to know our new little friend. Thanks to everyone for your prayers and love.

God’s Giving Love

John 3:16 is perhaps the most well known verse in all the Bible…and rightly so. I am not tired of it…I wish the whole world knew it by heart. It captures the endless wealth of the entire Gospel message in one verse. I have been meditating on just the first statement of that verse today and what inexhaustible riches are there. “For God so loved the world that He gave…” To say, “I love you” is one thing. But to express love through tangible transaction…that is another thing altogether. Love is a matter of action and not words alone. When a man proposes to a woman who he wants to marry, he bends his knee and holds out a diamond ring as a gift. He has said, “I love you” a thousand times before, but this time is like no other. No longer is it simply spoken words, now it is accompanied by a gift that is representative of his very life. Until the gift of life is given, true love has not been fully expressed.

I have just returned from Nsukka, Nigera a few hours ago (where the clips in the video above are from) where we were overwhelmed, once again, by the goodness of the Lord as multitudes were saved delivered and healed. The final count of the decision cards indicates that 1,109,900 people received Jesus as their savior during the 5 days of meetings which were attended by over 1.5 million people. During these meetings I preached the Gospel in 3 of the evening services and 2 of the FIRE conference meetings which were also very well attended.
