Bishop Marcus D. McKnight,
I believe you are a champion in the spiritual fight.
And your transparent teaching of God’s word
proves you are also a doer of what you’ve heard.
Not perfect, but always striving to be Christ-like
in the authentic, dynamic and humorous way you preach your life.
You break it down in visual style for everyone to see
the many hidden dangers and the path to victory.
I’ve tried the spirit by the spirit,
compared the Word and observed your fruit.
I believe you are a relevant beacon of love and light,
impacting all generations from the senior saints to the rebellious youth.
My faith has deepened under your leadership;
my sense of worth has increased through this ministry of love.
I believe that Apostolic Temple of Jesus Christ is the recipient
of poured out blessings, overflowing from windows above.
I believe God is faithful to His promises
and I too pass on this legacy of truth.
I believe that what God says is already done
and Bishop McKnight, I also believe in you!
Romans 4:20-22, KJV
20 He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; 21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform. 22 And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness.
