Let All You Do Be Done In Love.

Hello My Friend,

Many people today are not responding to things with love in mind nor are they keeping it in the forefront of all they do.

Their words and actions are far from loving and are often far from being motivated by love.

For some of us, it seems as though God needs to take us behind the proverbial woodshed and help correct our behavior. :-)

As followers of Christ we should not emulate the wrong behavior that others choose to display, rather, we should be spurred on by Christ's love for us and the great love of God The Father.

Even in times of conflict, disagreement, and opposition, we're to act and react in love.
Even in times where we are angry, we need to remember to love. 
Even in times of correction, we're to be motivated by and we should season it with love. (Just like God does with us.)

It's not easy but it's how God commands us to operate.

So, let all you do be done in love. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

Because of His great love for us.

Your Brother and Servant in Christ, 


Randolph Koch

"9 Keys To Walking In Christ" Devotional - Second Birthday Celebration!

Hello Friends!

In addition to celebrating my 50th birthday on July 9th, I'm celebrating another birthday this month as my first YouVersion devotional plan, "9 Keys To Walking In Christ" launched 2 years ago on July 9, 2018!

So, happy 2nd birthday to my plan! :-) 

Please join me in celebrating my plan's 2nd birthday by checking it out if you haven't already and please pass it on to friends.

Here's the link: https://www.bible.com/rea…/12135-9-keys-to-walking-in-christ (Or you can search Randolph Koch in the app plan search option)

The plan includes written and an audio version (read by me) available in the app.

I pray that I can serve you through this plan and have you join the 23K people who have subscribed to it and the over 14K have completed it so far. It's not about the numbers but it is about the honor of service people, helping them grow in their relationship with Christ.

Your Brother and Servant In Christ,
Randolph Koch

Thank You God For Another Year!

Today on my 50th birthday I simply want to give thanks to God!

I'm Thankful to God for the gift of life and another year to serve Him and His people!

I'm thankful for God's Word, my Savior Jesus, and the work of His Holy Spirit in my life!

I'm thankful for my family!
I'm thankful for friends.
I'm thankful for employment.
I'm thankful for my church family.
I'm thankful to be alive, period.

There are many things I'm thankful for and I pray this next year will be a blessing and filled with opportunities to serve and bring Him glory. Opportunities for Him to expand His territory through me somehow. Opportunities to serve His people helping meet spiritual and physical needs as much as possible. Opportunities to live life on purpose together as we strive to seek, serve, and love Him with all that is within us! 

I pray this year will be a year of further growth for me and becoming more deeply rooted in Him. 

I pray that God would use me somehow to help others grow in their relationship with Him and that they'd become more deeply rooted in Christ as well!

Many Blessings friends! Thank you for the honor of serving you!

Your brother and servant in Christ, 

Randolph Koch

A Shepherd's Heart - First Ever Fundraiser!

 
Dear Friends of A Shepherd's Heart,
This July, (My birthday month) I'm turning 50 (aka fiddy for you younger peeps) 😉 (ok I just made myself sound even older 😂) and I'm launching my very first small fundraiser. (I know I know..."hard to believe" I'm that old! 😂 😉)

In all the years of being a "tent maker" ministry, I've never done a formal fundraiser and through the counsel of those I trust, I'm working to raise a small amount of support. This support will be used to cover small operational costs including needed resources to serve with which includes projects & resources & to have a small amount of funds allocated to help others in need through my ministry.

This is a friends helping a friend endeavor much like when a missionary raises funds. Rest assured every penny will go to do His Kingdom work.

Your prayers are greatly appreciated as that God will provide the needed support through people like you so we can move forward with some wonderful projects to serve you more!

Please pray and then if led, please support my ministry endeavors through this fundraiser.

Every penny will go to do His Kingdom work.

Every gift, no matter the size, is a big gift in my view!

Even if you cannot give, your prayers are greatly appreciated and cherished!

If for some reason you'd rather not give via this Fundly site, please feel free to use Cash App sending to user name $ashepherdsheart
Or PayPal sending to giving@ashepherdsheart.org.
Or PayPal's Venmo app by sending to @ashepherdsheart
You're continued prayers and sharing this fundraiser with friends and family would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you!
Your Brother and Servant In Christ,
