Our message today was brought to us by Bro. Russ. The Title of the sermon was “The Purifying Hope.” The main reading was from 1 John 2:28 & 1 John 3:3. What is our hope in? If we have hope of the returning of Jesus Christ then we need to stand boldly and not be ashamed of who we are in Christ. This hope we have in Christ Jesus will purify us.
Sunday evening service began with singing for the Lord. We formed the prayer circle praying for our nation, our prayer list, for those in our congregation that are sick and for each other. Specials for The Lord were sang by Sister Peggy, Sister Juanita, Bro. John, Sister Sharon, and Sister Diana.
The evening message “Faith: What It Is and What It Does.” Hebrews 11:1 tells us that Faith is the grounds of things which are hoped for, and the evidence of things which are not seen. Romans 5:1 states being justified by faith, we have peace toward God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Then Ephesians states by grace are we saved through faith.
Faith is hope and through faith we can obtain salvation which is a gift of God. Faith made Abel worship God, made Enoch walk with God, and made Noah work for God. Faith requires action on our part without seeing the end results. Having hope and faith in Christ Jesus makes our lives better even we cannot see the future and God’s precious plan for our lives.
Time is now to accept Christ as your personal savoir and receive His love, mercy and grace that only he can give freely.
