Don't be satisfied till God is satisfied


Church Family,

During my morning Bible reading, I came across Jeremiah 47:6-7

Ah, sword of the LORD!
How long till you are quiet?
Put yourself into your scabbard;
rest and be still!
7How can it be quiet
when the LORD has given it a charge?
Against Ashkelon and against the seashore
he has appointed it.”

I have to admit I was hoping for a more upbeat passage to read today, but God’s word is always good, even when it doesn’t have the message I want.

How quickly are you satisfied? Church members, pastor’s included, are notoriously known for never being satisfied. Yet, how quickly do we become satisfied with the amount of “work” or “effort” that we have given? How quickly do we cry out, “that’s enough, I’m done?” The people are begging God to relent of His punishment, but the sword has been given a charge. What has God charged you with? Have you done enough, or will you continue until God is satisfied?

Reminders:

  1. Praise God for the winter clothing drive! If memory serves me correctly we had somewhere in the neighborhood of 140 items (14 bags full).
  2. Please continue to check the angel tree for new additions. Everyone has been chosen so far off the tree. If you took a person, please be sure to inform Katherine, Ashley, or Hanna. If you have anyone that you would like to add, please see Hanna or the other ladies.
  3. The Baptist Women are meeting this Sunday at 5pm to put together care baskets for Christmas.
  4. This Sunday we are collecting an offering for the angel tree families.
  5. Choir Practice Sunday at 5pm
  6. This Sunday night we return to our regular format for classes at 6pm.

Love, Serve, Go
