From the Pastor:
James 4:14 - 15 Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away. Instead you ought to say,
"If the Lord will, we will live and also do this or that."
The Scriptures teach very clearly that we are not in total control of life - God is. We may make plans, but ultimately it is the Lord who determines what is actually going to occur. We invited evangelist, Jeffrey Harvel, from Morristown, TN to lead our Soul Winning Commitment Day January 24, but the Lord had a different plan when He gave us a wintery mix! We had to cancel our plans and reschedule the event for a later date, which we will announce as soon as we can. Please continue to pray for your friends and family members that are lost, and make every effort to be a part of this important outreach effort. Pick up one of the "Operation Andrew" cards and write the names of those for whom your are proving. God may grant you the opportunity to lead many of them to Jesus!
Over the last several weeks we have had more people pass away, who are connected to our church family, than I can remember ever happening in this short period of time. I mentioned to the congregation that I am living everyday more and more with my eyes focused on eternity. Seeking to live every day in a manner that pleases our Lord. There should be a sense of urgency about how we carry out the commands of Christ to make disciples of every nation. Let us get to it!
