May 11, We had Wednesday night Bible study with Steve Wilkerson as our teacher. We are in Acts, chapter two. The passage that stayed with me started at verse 14.
In Acts, chapter 3 verse 11, Peter is telling the people about how they are responsible for Jesus and His death on the cross. We all need to reread chapter two and three. It’s talking about us also. It was a good lesson.
Sunday, May 15, during morning service, prayer requests were given as follows: graduates at Ava and surrounding areas, Betty Herrell’s niece’s grandmother, little James who is four or five, requested we pray for his grandmomma’s feet. “Train them up in the way,” our church family, people traveling for graduation services, Bevy’s mother, Danny Dry, flood victims, three year old boy who lost both kidneys and waiting on a transplant and on dialysis and living in Oldfield, Bevy’s tests, Linda Donnelly, military men and women and our leaders. Remember Chantelle Emmerson and family. Her grandfather passed. His name is Artie Cavitt, Doug Ingram and Marge, Linda R. and Gary.
We all know God is in control, but when there is so much sickness and problems, I think we tend to get weak, pray harder and longer!
The Sunday morning message was from Eccl. 1:2, vanity, vanities, saith the preacher, vanities of vanities, all is vanity.
The definition of vanity: “excessive pride in one’s appearance, qualities, achievements, etc. conceit, an instance or display of this, something about which one is vain, lack of real value, worthless, trivial or pointless.
Life not centered on God is purposeless and meaningless.
