Jesus is the anchor for our souls, when storms come
Sunday morning attendance was good and we still have people out due to various reasons, maybe when the weather gets better and stays better then all the flu and virus will be over with and everyone can get back to normal. We were blessed again to have several visitors. Our prayer is they received a blessing and were encourage by being in our services on this day and feel welcome to come back anytime they can. The choir’s special was, ‘I’ll Fly Away,” other special music was, “The weight of the Cross,” by James Butler with his wife Caitlin at the piano. Bro. Ron’s message was taken from Hebrews 12: 1-2 and other scriptures. The author of Hebrews is unknown but it is inspired by the Holy Spirit. Portions of the book were written to brethren, meaning the church to exhort and encourage one another. There is power in scripture. There is hope set before us; Jesus is the anchor for our souls, when storms come. As witnesses for Jesus let us get rid of any sin that slows us down or hinders us from doing His will. Hope motivates us to run the race and run with endurance. You may ask what is our race? For us to be save is His will and fix our eyes on Jesus, He endured the cross and sat down at the right hand of God.
Sunday night at 6 p.m., a good attendance was present. Bro. Ron’s message, “Wisdom from James and Proverbs.” James 1: 5 say, if any of you lack wisdom let him ask of God. In Proverbs 2: 1-5 we read about Solomon, the writer of most of proverbs. The fear of the Lord is the theme of this book, we read a lot about wisdom, understanding and knowledge. Wisdom is applied knowledge seeing things from God’s point of view. Our God exists we need to reference Him in all things. These six points will lead us to wisdom, wisdom is to know God. (1) Receive the Word; (2) Memorize scripture prayer life will be strengthened; (3) Be attentive listeners; (4) Have obedient application this builds stability; (5) Persistent prayer; and (6) Bible study.
