Wednesday evening service is like a oasis, a mid week refueling, so to speak.
Prayer requests were spoken for Jamie, Travis Tucker, Ryan Moore and Elsie Huff family and Wilkerson family traveling.
Our study was on Elijah. His name means, the Lord is my God. He was a Benjamite, the son of Jeroham, Chronicles 8:27. Elijah’s prophetic activities emphasized the unconditional loyalty required of the Nation of Israel. Unconditional loyalty is still required today.
Elisha and King Ahab were always in conflict, Elisha serving the holy God, Ahab serving Baal and other strange gods, and then there was Jezebel. These scriptures are worth reading. When God sent judgment because of the failure of His people to obey His word.
I would like to leave this world as Elijah did. He was carried to heaven in a whirlwind. Do you remember who else this was bestowed upon?
Sunday morning service, July 24, 20011. God is blessing us this morning with a much needed rain. Praise His name.
We had a very good Sunday school lesson this morning, but we always have that. In finishing upon Romans, chapter 6:11, like wise, reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. The first step is giving your life wholly to God. The second step toward Christian’s victory over sin is refusal to let sin reign in our lives and the third step is give yourself wholly unto God. Sin is sin, today there are things going on that the people in the o.t. were put to death for. You say, “we don’t live under the O.T. laws, you need to read again the ten commandments. “ Thou shall not still means, “thou shalt not”
Prayer requests before the morning message were many, Betty Herrell’s sister, Becky, Sue Potter, Ashley Forrest Dooms, Reba and Don N. family, Leah and Connie Lee, Sue Thomas, Kevin C., Norma Johnson, Marvin G. and his family and Elsie Huff family.
Pastor Gary’s message was found in Joshua 24:14-15. That’s a scripture some of us women find a problem with, “but as for as me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” God tells us the man is the head of the household. He is responsible for the family’s spiritual welfare, he is the role model. He is to love his wife and his children as the Lord loves him, and he is to provide for them.
The morning offering was being received and this story was told later. When the offering bag came to Gracie, she turned her little purse upside down so everything would go in. She is five years old. She is Don and Ruby’s great granddaughter. Just like in Mark 12:42-44, Gracie put in all she had, too.
When is the last time we as Christians have given all we had? Money, time, love to the last? A cheery hello?
The evening message was in Acts 1:14, these all continued with one accord prayer and supplication with the women, and Mary, the mother of Jesus and with his brethren. 1. Accord 2. Prayer 3. Supplication. Accord means harmonious, be in agreement. How can we hear God when He is talking to us if we are not in one accord? We need to be listening to what He is saying to us. We pray to Him for something then go about our way, we miss out on a lot of God’s words, listen.
