" A MINISTRY OF FAITH THAT BELIEVES IN MAKING DISCIPLES THAT ARE COMMITTED TO CHRIST AND ONE ANOTHER. "
August 14 - Doing the Will of God
Why are we here on earth? It is not to do our own will, but rather to do the will of Christ, who commissioned us. Paul wrote in Colossians 1:9, “For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding.” We are to be filled with the knowledge of God’s will. In other words, the knowledge of Christ’s will is to take over the whole of our minds. It is to completely control our thinking. Every motive and every intention is to be controlled by the knowledge of the will of Christ.
Paul continued in Colossians 4:12, “Epaphras, who is one of you, a bondservant of Christ, greets you, always laboring fervently for you in prayers, that you may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God.”
The believer becomes perfect and complete only insofar as he fulfills the whole will of God. Hebrews 13 states this truth beautifully:
Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you perfect in every good work to do his will. (Hebrews 13:20–21 KJV)
We are made perfect and complete, we come to fulfillment, only insofar as we do the will of God, just as Jesus found fulfillment during His earthly life only in doing the will of God.
If there is disharmony, frustration, or emotional tumult in your life, consider checking your relationship to the will of God, for you can be made perfect only insofar as you know and do the will of God. Anything else will bring only incompleteness and frustration.
Thank You, Lord, for Your work in me. I proclaim my hope to stand perfect and complete in all the will of God, finding fulfillment only in doing His will. I have been made perfect in Christ. Amen.

The History of CGMF.
CGMF began as ministry almost seven years ago. With three basic goals in mind. One, to help train disciples locally, and to encourage the establishment of bible neighborhood fellowships within the church in an interdenominational fashion. Two, provide for much needed assistance for those without medical insurance. Finally, to establish a network of attorneys to give legal guidance to those without the ability to afford one when necessary.
These basic three goals saw the establishment of CGMF Inc.. Since then CGMF has grown and expanded throughout the state of Nebraska. To facilitate this growth CGMF's main office has now moved to Omaha, Nebraska in its efforts to better handle the fluid changes within the ministry itself.
CGMF has 22 neighborhood fellowship groups located throughout the state of Nebraska. Eight of which are unique and independent, whom are associated with CGMF, but are not under its authority or oversight. All the CGMF affiliated groups and associated partners serve in training, teaching and establishing disciples for Christ. With a specially designed teaching program of rotational classes, including special events. All of which have been developed to equip each and every believer in their walk of faith.
Reverend Patrick Vossen is our founder and president of CGMF Inc.. Rev. Vossen has ministered in various locales and holds license and ordination with FGRMC, as well other ministerial associations. He also serves as a Bishop on the Council of Elders of FGRMC, and is the President of Focus Bible College.
