Our speaker Sunday morning was Bro. Jack Essary. He brought the message from II Timothy 1:1-9 and Romans 6:20-23. The gifts of God: grace, mercy, peace, prayer, joy and faith. Christ died for us so we could have these gifts. Don’t be ashamed of Him tell others about His love. Tell them they have to choose where they go. It was a spirit-filled message from God.

Our government leaders have and are failing its people because of their lack of faith in Christ. We would be so much better morally if they and us would follow God’s word. Then the blessings would follow. Even our supposed “Christian leaders” are failing to lead their people and follow God’s word. It’s all becoming a social club. It is a serious thing to serve the Lord, a man’s soul is a very precious thing.
Come worship with us at Caney. You are always welcome.
