" A MINISTRY OF FAITH THAT BELIEVES IN MAKING DISCIPLES THAT ARE COMMITTED TO CHRIST AND ONE ANOTHER. "
September 19 - Led by the Spirit
There is a popular teaching that convinces people that they must be super-spiritual to be considered sons of God. But Paul contradicted this idea in the eighth chapter of Romans, where he wrote that all who are led regularly by the Holy Spirit are indeed sons of God. “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God” (Romans 8:14). In one sense, if you are already perfect, you do not need the Holy Spirit. You need the Holy Spirit, though, if you are to become perfect.
The way to live as a real son or daughter of God is to be led regularly by the Holy Spirit. As Jesus said, “My sheep hear My voice,…and they follow Me” (John 10:27). By “hear,” Jesus meant regularly hear, regularly follow. This is not an up-and-down, once a week process; rather, it is a regular, continuing relationship.
Paul continued in Romans 8:15, “For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, ‘Abba, Father.’” The “spirit of bondage,” very simply, is the law. Instead of being bound by the law, you have received the Spirit of God, who assures you of your identity as a child of God. As a child of God, you have all the rights of the inheritance. Paul assured us, “The Spirit Himself bears witness with our [regenerated] spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs [inheritance is the subject]; heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ” (verses 16–17).
Many people receive assurance of being children of God only when they are baptized in the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit comes in to assure you that you are a child of God and that you have a legal right to your inheritance. You are not merely born, but you are also adopted, and this passage clearly connects adoption and inheritance.
Thank You, Father, that I am Your child. I proclaim that I am a child of God, with all the rights of inheritance. I have received the Spirit of sonship, and by Him, I cry, “Abba, Father.” 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.
