Hope everyone had a great week and got that extra hour of sleep Sunday morning.
Brother Bill Coats sang a special song this morning, which we enjoyed very much. Pastor Buddy started a new series this morning called the essential James which will be over the book of James. This morning the message was from James 1:1-8 which was on wisdom . The Old Testament story that went with it was from II Chronicles 1:7-11 when Solomon asked for wisdom to lead the people. Proverbs chapter 8 is the wisdom chapter in the Bible. Pastor Buddy brought out three ways God gives direction to His people No.1 is that God uses His people to show us things in our life. No. 2 is that God speaks to us through His Word when we ask God for His direction then we need to go to His word and read the answer there. No. 3 God gives you wisdom in your heart when you are facing something let the peace of God rule in your heart Colossians 3-15. Let God say yes or no through the peace of God in your heart. When you have doubt in your life you are being double minded. Integrity means being single minded being double minded means we have something in our heart to do other than what God tells us . When our hearts are set on obeying Him wisdom will be ours. Pastor Buddy did a great job as usual.
In November on Sunday nights Brother Lester Platt will be bringing the messages. We are looking forward to hearing him. Next Sunday night after the service we will be having chili and the fixins and desserts. We would love to have you come and be with us. Our services are at 8:30 and 11:00 Sunday morning, Sunday school at 10:00, Sunday night at 6:00, Wednesday night prayer and Bible study at 7:00.
Thought for the week; Wisdom comes more from living than from studying.
