Our Sunday morning attendance was good even though several were out for different reasons. Visitors were present, they always bless us with their presence, we hope they were in some way blessed also and will continue to be with us as they follow God’s leadership. Our prayers go out to our members and visitors. The call to worship was “Majesty” by the congregation. Welcome and announcements were given and Deacon of the Week James Harold Smith opened with prayer. The choir special was “There’s coming a great Day. Special in song, “His Eye is on the Sparrow,” by James Butler. The service was open for praise and testimonies of God’s blessings. Bro. Ron’s message “Faithfulness of God.” Lamentations 3: 19-26 and other scriptures. God wants everyone to obey Him but so many fail to do so.
Jeremiah recalled the promises of God and it gave Him hope, do we remember in our minds the goodness of God and all His loving kindness toward us? God said He would save all that would call on Him. There are times when we go through hard times do we remember God’s faithfulness? God is faithful, even when we’re not. God keeps His word. He said, I will never leave you nor forsake you. Sometimes things happen we just don’t understand, troubles, difficulties, temptations, God is faithful to intervene and deliver. It’s the principle of waiting on the Lord Isaiah 40:31. We should consider our faithfulness to God, as we consider God’s faithfulness to us. Are we faithful in our church attendance, prayer life, witnessing, giving and service in the kingdom of God? Sunday night at 6 p.m. attendance was good. Bro.
Ron continued message on the judgment seat of Christ. II Cor. 5 and other scriptures.
