Little Bethlehem


Church Family,

God often uses the little, weak, few, etc. to accomplish His purposes. Part of the reason why He does this is to remove all doubt that it was the work of God and not the works of man.

Micah 5:2-5a But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah, who are too little to be among the clans of Judah, from you shall come forth for me one who is to be ruler in Israel, whose coming forth is from of old, from ancient days. 3Therefore he shall give them up until the time when she who is in labor has given birth; then the rest of his brothers shall return to the people of Israel. 4And he shall stand and shepherd his flock in the strength of the LORD, in the majesty of the name of the LORD his God. And they shall dwell secure, for now he shall be great to the ends of the earth. 5And he shall be their peace.

Remember it is not the size of your faith, but who your faith is in that matters. Of all the things that God uses to shepherd us, He uses His name. A name? Why not an army, weapon, or something tangible?

Throughout God’s word we are reminded to walk by Faith and not by sight. How often do we make decisions based on our strength, money, abilities, etc.? Trusting in the name of Jesus requires us to humble ourselves and believe that God will provide.

Are you walking by Faith or by Sight? Do you have to know the results before you start something? How do you help other believers walk by Faith?

Beginning this Sunday at 5:30pm we are going to prayer walk a local neighborhood. This is going to require Faith. Our success won’t be based on how many people we talk to or how many start coming to church because of this. Our success will be in our faithfulness to follow the Lord.

Reminders:

  1. Tonight is Prayer Meeting at 7pm.
  2. May 20th at 5:30pm Prayer Walking
  3. June 3rd Graduate Service at 11am. Please give a baby/early child pic, older child pic, and a cap and gown/senior pic to Terri or Andi.
  4. June 17th-21st VBS daily from 6pm to 8:30pm.

Love, Serve, Go

Brian Winburn
