~Another Day to Serve the Lord~
Wow it has been a time, we just had a week Revival; gone daily,
and nightly, I am about tuckered out, but it has been good.
We seen so many blessings this week, as always we go to be a blessing
and we are the ones who are blessed, God is so awesome. I just praise
him for the work he has done in our lives, for healing my dear husband and
letting him preach and sing once again, with power from on high, and
with such boldness and lifting up the name of Jesus. We were honored'
to spend a week with the folks of Bethel Baptist church, in Blackshear,
It is just a year ago when we were going through the removal of throat cancer,
going daily for radiation treatments, and really not knowing what God in store
for our life. The doctors told Chuck he may loose his voice, or it could come
and go, or get hi and low, it was a very discouraging time in the life of a preacher.
But praise God, he seen fit to do otherwise, he never lost his voice, or even
have any voice change, the hand of almighty God was upon him and with us
both through it all. He still has some soreness in his throat, but it does not stop him
from preaching, and singing. We sang Look for me at Jesus feet and the lord
just really broke hearts, last night we I sang he did not throw the clay away, and
we sang together If that isn't love. WOW what a spirit of love and unity we felt.
His messages this week have been on Loving God, God loving us, and loving
each other, for a church to be a true church of God it must be in Unity and in one
accord, we are all made up into one body in Christ, he is the head and each of
us serve as another part of the body, when we do not agree we force one of our
body members to be hurt, like if you hit your thumb with a hammer, the thumb
really hurts, but the whole hand hurts too. So to have complete unity we must be
in one accord, believing what the word of God tells us. These verses here a not
just a suggestion, but actually a command right from God.
John 13:34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
John 13:35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
John 15:12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
John 15:17 These things I command you, that ye love one another.
See we are to be in one accord with our church body to have a healthy and happy church.
We we have another member of our family, our 8th great grand son, Patrick Ray Jr.
I will leave you with these thoughts, May God bless you, and may you bless
the lord oh my soul... Ps 104:1 Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty.
