1 Corinthians 16:9 “for a wide door for effective work has opened to me, and there are many adversaries. “ 

I have no doubt that God has big plans for reaching Charlotte with the gospel of Jesus Christ through Enjoying God Fellowship. Like with Paul, a wide door for effective work has been opened for us. But…that’s right, there’s a but. Whenever a wide door for ministry is opened by the Lord, you better believe that it won’t be the Filled-With-The-Spirit Club welcoming you on the other side of the door. It will be enemies of the cross. Sadly, more times than not these adversaries wear the name “Christian.” Do not be discouraged when we face various trials, it’s all part of the plan!
