Lord’s Supper explained
Not as steamy hot this Monday morning, feels nice.
On Sunday morning singing was good with specials and Butch taking his message from 1st Corinthians 11:23-34. "What the Lord's Supper is" was the title of his sermon, explaining it as I've never heard it preached.
We are not worthy of what He did for us. "We receive that which I've given you." He meant this was the most unique meal you'll ever receive. When we partake of the Lord's Supper, we are supposed to give Him thanks.
We cannot bargain; we either accept or refuse the cup. Someone had to pay the price. He did bear our sins so that we would not go to eternal hell. I always get such a blessing over communion. I go deep down in my heart, as an old pastor of my childhood always would say, "and examine myself." Such a blessing.
Sunday night Butch took his message from Psalm 110:1-7. Each of the Psalms leave a special message within your heart.
I need to make a correction. The baby blanket, lap blankets, etc. is not a Youth project. It is a mission of Sugar Creek Baptist Church. So sorry for the misunderstanding.
Against the Downpour left immediately after church on Sunday headed to Anniston, Ala., where they were to play at Parker Memorial Baptist Church.
James and I send our sympathy to Frank and Peggy Armour in the recent death of his brother.
I've been "doing" Tomato Krisp Pickles, thanks to Janice Jenkins for the green tomatoes and the recipe. Today I'm going to use my own recipe and stuff some green peppers– so good when you need something quick to fix. Would really like to can some more squash pickles. Those go like wild fire in our household and I do so enjoy doing all this special stuff.
Tuesday nights Antioch baptist College will begin bible classes here at our church. Starts around 7 p.m.
Try to come the first night or two, see if you are interested.
Happy birthday wishes for Russ Johnson on the 18, Cole Walker the 20, Rusty Johnson and Chris Bell on the 22 and special wishes for our three grandsons who will celebrate on the 19. Trae Eugene Holmes, Jesse Curtis Arwood III and James Charles Arwood: what a blessing you have been to the family.
News is short, not much going on.
So until next week, may the Lord bless you real good.
