Brother Leon Turner brought the Sunday School Lesson titled Stand Down.  We don’t always have to get our way in order to resolve a conflict.  Please read Genesis 13: 1-18.

This lesson tells us about Abram, his wife and his nephew Lot leaving their home and going into a new land.  Abram and Lot’s herdsmen were having difficulties getting along.  So Abram decided to ease the conflict by offering to split their herd and lands with no hard feelings.  I guess you could say that Abram “stood down” in allowing Lot to have first pick of the land in order to resolve their conflict.  Can you think of a situation in your life that “standing down” might help?  Have you ever drank from the cup of humility?  Do you know that if you were the only person ever on earth, Jesus would have still died for only you?  We are so fortunate to have a God that loves us so much!  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  John 3:16.

Brother David Mahan brought the sermon today titled The Writing On The Wall.  Please read Daniel 5: 1-31.

Can you imagine sitting at a party and seeing a disembodied hand begin to write on the wall?  That is what happened when King Belshazzar decided to drink wine out of God’s sacred vessels.  The hand wrote these words, Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin.  These words meant that your kingdom is over and shall be divided also you were weighed in the balances and found lacking.  He had made God mad!  That very night the king was slain.  What can we learn from this?  First of all, don’t mock God!  Secondly, repent and be saved today!  Thirdly, Do the very best you can for God every day that He allows you to live.

Please join us for Sunday School at 10 a.m. and Worship Service at 11 a.m. with Pastor Barry DeWeese.
