We woke up to a foggy, dreary, cold morning Sunday, but our day was brightened when it was time to go to the house of our Lord and Saviour. As we entered His house, we met people who are truly glad to be there and serve the Lord. The early service starts at 8:30 with traditional hymns from a great band that loves God. Pastor Buddy brought a good sermon on acting normal as a Christian. We are starting a series on being normal. It was good today on waiting on God. We live in a world that doesn’t want to wait on anything and it has got into our Christian life. We want Him to answer immediately or else we decide He doesn’t hear us and sometimes walk away from Him. After Pastor Buddy’s message we have Sunday school classes. Our class upstairs is taught by Bro. Terry Shearer, who brought us our lesson today from III John on being a good example or a bad example of Christian living. We all should examine ourselves and ask what kind of example am I. He also left us an assignment if we wanted to do it, to write a note to someone who has been an inspiration to us in their Christian walk, and let them know that they have been.
After Sunday school at 11 a.m., it is time for the contemprary service with another great band that loves to sing Praise and Worship songs for the Lord. We had several praise reports in church today. God is doing great things! One praise report that I was really impressed by, was a young man by the name of Chase who had come by Friday and talked and prayed with Pastor Buddy. His fiancee was in the hospital and in a coma, but Saturday she had woke up and is doing good. We were glad to have Chase with us this morning. God still answers prayers. With that being said, lets not forget the prayer requests that is in front of the pulpit, and the ones that we want to see saved on the board on the left of the cross. If you don’t have a church home, come visit us at Ava Assembly.
Until next week, may God bless and keep you.
Thought for the week: John the Baptist never did a miracle, but Jesus said there was none greater than John. We need to be satisfied being a light for Christ.
