Sometimes I get a request from someone to prepare a video for an upcoming service. Sometimes searching for the requested video takes me to other videos of interest and relevance. For instance, when searching for the 86 year old man splitting a rock with millennial tools, I saw a video listed for a man lifting a multi-ton stone. Ok, I had to watch that one too. This one some led me to auditions that made Simon cry...
Wait, how did I get so off track, I ponder. It happens to all of us in life and in our Walk with God. I call it 'Shiny stuff' as it makes us think, "Oooh, preeeety.." and we are off onto something else.
Let us each one keep each other on the straight and narrow path God has intended. Even before you master this, please reach out to others who are caught up in the "Oooh preeeety" stuff and invite them to Come and See.
Don't forget to come join the fun Friday night for Open Mic Night from 6-8pm in the Family Gathering Center.
As I made yet another trip to Valdosta through Albany and Sylvester, I realize just how lucky I was when I made my ill-advised trip to the farm back in January. Places I once stopped for gas are gone, warehouses missing, and trees telling of the powerful forces I must have been ahead of in January.
So here it is some five months later and cleanup efforts are still in full swing. This kind of reminds me of how we try to 'fix up' our life on our own. It is a task that has no end. But, give yourself over to God as we admit our sins, admit we are sinners, and accept Jesus, the storm damage of sin in us is gone. Fixed. Cleaned up and made new.
This week I want you to reach out to someone you do not know and tell them of the Good News of Jesus. Invite that person or family to come and see, and to grow with us in Jesus.
Wow! God gave us beautiful weather for our inaugural Big Spring Fling Wing Ding. Not only that, but we had a great time at each event. Most importantly, we met new friends, and Mary gave three tours of the Preschool.
See what happens when we all come together and witness... we grow in God. This week, have a large time as you reach out to others with God's Love and Grace. Remember, each Sunday is
"Bring someone" Sunday.
