“Always look at others through the eyes of Christ”
By Willie Ann Johnson
I’m back to writing. Since my retirement my daughter has kept me busy on vacation, which I enjoyed very much. Audrey my Goddaughter kept the readers up to date. She does a great job in writing. Thank you Audrey; hats off to you.
The weather is so nice and warm today, which is Sunday afternoon and the weather reporter predicts bad weather by Tuesday that was my last hearing of the news but that lets us know that God can change anything in a twinkle of an eye. “What a mighty God we serve.” We continue to save souls at the Springs with eight to baptize on Sunday; one baby for Christening and two came to Christ on Sunday. We are so thankful to see God moving with the young and older people. Thank you Lord.
Our pastor came forward Sunday as usually full of the spirit letting us know a transfiguration is taking place and it is good to witness; it is also good to use this term as it describes Jesus’ appearance when He was glorified and shones with a heavenly brightness and radiance of God’s presence. “Thank you Jesus”. To the new converts in Roman 8 verse 1 “Ain’t no shame in my game.” The word said there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. Now that you have turned your life over to Christ the devil will come to you more than ever but tell the devil to get back he will not make you feel guilty by trying to get you back into the world because there ain’t no shame in my game now because I am a child of God. Praise the Lord. After the word we all went to the pool. What a time we had. What a mighty God we serve. After we witnessed the baptizing our deacons came forward with the devotion and our pastor came forward with the sermon coming from Matthew 17 chapter verse 17 and 18, The All Power “Jesus”; the underpower “Satan” and the power “Us”. Another powerful sermon, thank you Pastor T. for the Word.
After service some of the members went to Holly Springs Baptist Church to help them celebrate their Men’s Day program. Pastor Braswell is their spiritual leader. And others members went to Zion Wrightville in Greene County to help them celebrate Pastor Reeves’ anniversary. We are keeping very busy at the Spring but we must keep going to do the Lord’s work.
Gabby Martin from Gordon College was home for the weekend visiting her mother and grandmother and also attending church service on Sunday.
Continue to keep all the sick, shut-ins and bereaved in your thoughts and prayers.
