Hello Grace Church!
What a beautiful day to reflect on the goodness of the Lord! The Psalmist said, “The Lord is good, His mercy is everlasting and His truth endureth to all generations.” These words were true when they were written 1,000 years ago and they are true now. Think about the “goodness” and “mercy” of the Lord. Daily the Lord pours these out upon His children. My friends, that’s you and me! Daily… He watches over and cares for His own! Psalm 136 explodes with these words, Psalm 136:1-3 “O give thanks unto the LORD; for H e is good: for His mercy endureth for ever. 2 O give thanks unto the God of gods: for His mercy endureth for ever. 3 O give thanks to the Lord of lords: for His mercy endureth for ever.” Church, we are the recipients of the love and favor of the Lord! Let that bless you as you make much of Jesus!
Pray for Brad, Seth and Matt in Belarus. They are busy, to say the least. Busy sharing Christ with our brothers and sisters there. Michael and Amy are adjusting to Kenya. they have been there almost two weeks! They are presently engaged in AFRICA BASED ORIENTATION. Their studies will last for a few more weeks. Looking ahead, pray also for our 2015 Missions Conference scheduled for November 13-15. As Christians, we are “called” to share Christ, to spread the Gospel. Greenville is ripe for a church to step up and make a difference. That church is Grace Church. Praying together for people that we love will bring us together around the Lord’s calling for our church! Yes, just as Paul and the Romans were “called,” so are we. Embrace the Lord’s calling and see the Lord use you beyond what you can even imagine.
Our Discovery Class began this past Sunday (10/18/2015). What an enjoyable time with friends new to Grace Church. Sunday our focus was “Loving God and Loving Each Other” from Matthew 22:37-40. If you missed last Sunday, join us this Sunday. You will meet some new people and make some new friends. That’s guaranteed!!! I hope to see you there. Call me if you have any questions.
Harold Ockenga gives us this insight from Romans 1:14, “If God saved you, you are a debtor.”
Serving Jesus Together!
