Sunday School Attendance – 19

Worship Attendance – 27 – Jimmie Hefner - Speaker

Scripture Reading: Matthew 14:22-33

Sermon Title: “The Danger of Watching the Waves.”

Sometimes God allows a storm in order for us to grow. We can do nothing in our strength but we can do amazing things in God’s strength.

The storm came as the disciples were in the middle of the sea. Jesus came walking on the water. Peter asked Jesus to let him walk on water too.

  1. power of faith in Christ allowed Peter to step out when Christ said “Come”. When Peter took his eyes off Christ Jesus and looked at the wind and the waves he began to sink. When we let fear cause doubt we tend to be powerless as a church.

Focus on Christ Jesus. Be humble. Be obedient. Love and serve our neighbors as ourselves.

STOP DOUBTING God’s power to overcome sin!

…Pastor Larry Childers preached from Nehemiah 2:17 – 20. Nehemiah loved the Lord. Nehemiah knew God in a personal way and was in a relationship with Him. Nehemiah saw the need that Jerusalem needed. Nehemiah did what God had placed on his heart to do. God has a job/plan for each one of us.

…We had 16 for Evening Worship.

Tommy Carter sang “Like a River Glorious” for the special music.

…Bro. Larry continued his message from this morning on Nehemiah 2:17 – 20. Do people notice when our demeanor changes? Nehemiah went and found out the facts of about the city. The Spirit of God was with Nehemiah. The people in Jerusalem worked in rebuilding the wall in one accord. God had placed in Nehemiah’s heart the desire to rebuild the wall.

Hope all have a blessed week!

Brother M.L. Faler brought a message from 1 Corinthians 13:1-13.

There is nothing in this world more important than love. There are three types of love in the Bible.

1. Agape-A God kind of love, I love you period.

2. Brotherly love-I love you if you love me.

3. Eros-Sexual love. Not talked about much in the Bible.

Gal 5:14

1 Peter 2:17

Gal 6:10

Love isn’t a fluffy feeling. Love is a way you act. It is an action word.

The significance of love. It’s not good if we’re not motivated by love. Love matters most.

The qualities of love.

Love suffers - patient.

Love isn’t jealous of others.

Love doesn’t make you think yourself better than others.

Love rejoices in truth. Let truth rise to the top.

The endurance of truth. Love will go through the church age and eternity.

A miracle- That reversed from the normal.

1. Creation

2. Moses

3. The apostles.

Love matters most. To love someone, you want the best for them.

Are we ready to accept other folks?

We need to care if we love folks. Show love so people will know we’re legitimate.
