Wow! Here it is, Friday afternoon! This week has blown by for sure. Recently Cheryl and I were at a Little League Baseball game with our grandkids. I heard a voice shout, “Hey Coach Meshaw, do you remember me? You led me to Christ in the locker room at Wilmington Christian Academy.” At first, I had to think, and I did remember this young man that happened to be the umpire for the games that day! I had shared the Gospel with Tim and he prayed to receive Christ as a teenager. Honestly, that happened some 25-30 years ago. I am glad he remembered the day he came to Jesus for the forgiveness of his sins. I share this story to encourage you to spread the “Good News” of the Gospel. Surely you know someone that needs Jesus! Pray for them and then go to them with your testimony of how Jesus saved you. Often we assume that everyone knows about Jesus and how to be saved. That is just not true! Pray for that friend or family member that needs Jesus and then go. Just tell them what Jesus did for you and invite them to join you on your journey with Christ! God’s Spirit will use you as you share Christ! Send me a name at ( and I will pray with you! Remember, “The Gospel is the power of God unto salvation.” Maybe someone is on your heart. Pray and go and see what the Lord does.

THANK YOU to everyone that was here last Sunday morning and evening. Pastor Jamin and our musicians always magnify Christ here at Grace Church. I heard many good things about the services and the music. Cheryl and I had a great time at her family reunions. We saw a number of people that we had not seen for some time. Also, THANK YOU to everyone that was here last Sunday evening for Pastor Robert Kornegay’s presentation about God and Science! You blessed him; he told me so! He sent me a note and was encouraged by how many of you were in the service. Again, THANK YOU for your faithfulness to Christ and His Church!

Psalm 126:5-6 They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. 6 He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.

REMEMBER, this Sunday we serve The Lord’s Table in our morning worship time. Every member of Grace Church should be here. Invite a friend or family member. If you have not been to the services in a while, join us! Don’t wait another week… come on back and join your brothers and sisters for worship! You will be blessed… I promise! Sometimes we drift away from Christ and His Church… if that is you, come back Sunday! We love you and miss seeing you!

Enjoy your weekend! Make much of Jesus… HE IS LORD OF ALL!
