In the name of Jesus I bless Marc, his wife, Annette, and the Wesley Church with great spiritual, numerical and financial growth for the advancement of the Kingdom of God!

But now God's kind of righteousness stands manifested apart from law [of any kind], although it is attested by the Law and the Prophets. Indeed God's kind of righteousness is through faith in Jesus Christ. It is effective for all who are trusting [in him]. There is no distinction, for the whole race has sinned, and [man] continues to fall short of God's standard. The permanent principle of justification operates freely by the gift of his grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus, whom God openly set forth as the means of expiation by his blood, to be appropriated through faith...even while declaring righteous the person who places trust in Jesus.You will never be declared "Not Guilty" of sins based on how good you are. You aren't good at all compared to God's holiness. Rather, you are declared "Not Guilty" by trusting in the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross.
Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them. (Romans 12:14 ESV)
And when Peter saw it he addressed the people: "Men of Israel, why do you wonder at this, or why do you stare at us, as though by our own power or piety we have made him walk? And his name--by faith in his name--has made this man strong whom you see and know, and the faith that is through Jesus has given the man this perfect health in the presence of you all. (Acts 3:12,16 ESV)The late Church of God minister, Maurice Berquist (1923—1993), wrote a fascinating book entitled The Miracle and Power of Blessing. You can read it online for free by going to this link. You don't have to agree with all of the points, illustrations or conclusions of Berk to, well, be blessed by the book.
