His son, Ahaz, was evil and closed the church doors. In the 29th chapter Hezekiah, his grandson, reopened the church and cleaned it up. He commanded the people to offer a burnt offering. Lets clean the filth out of our hearts and serve the Lord again. Sis. Melba Austin closed the service by singing a beautiful song.

Are we sharing the words of life with others? Are we seeking the good word of God? He is the bread of life, without Jesus where would we go? Speak the words of life so others can have eternal life. Wonderful words, beautiful words by which we can all have eternal life with Christ. We all will live forever somewhere. It’s your choice where. Choose Christ and gain Heaven. There is only one way to Heaven, it’s through the blood of Christ.
