Black Jack Church

This May 31, 2015 was another Fifth Sunday fellowship service. Many needs and prayer requests were brought forward as Brother David Rhoads opened our service. We then enjoyed our song service before dismissing to Sunday School. The adults studied Job 12 and Job’s response to Zophar’s critical assessment of his life, which was in verse 2. Job said that wisdom would surely die with Zophar, but then went on to say that he, too, knew some things! Mostly Job spoke of the greatness of God saying anyone with eyes and ears would know these things, as if to say, to Zophar you have not said anything new. Job listened, but did not receive into his heart Zophar’s viewpoint, but was steadfast in the knowing of God through his relationship and experiences with God. The word is clear that we must seek out our own salvation. We hear different doctrines, but do they marry up with the word? That responsibility belongs to each of us to find out.

Pastor Vic Murdy’s message was from Acts 2:41 and on through this chapter. His reading of the word was a reminder that the move of the Holy Spirit, His presence can only come with all being in one mind and in one accord. We must continue to remain steadfast in the apostle’s doctrine and fellowship and in the breaking of bread and in prayers as in verse 42.  Ephesians 4:3 also reads “endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace” as a reminder of the necessity, the importance of unity .
