Warning, I did it anyway


Church Family,

Praise God for you! What a wonderful time of worship we had yesterday from Sunday school to choir practices to a time of prayer. Boy, God sure is good.

If my parents had a nickle for every time they warned me before I did wrong and I still went ahead and did it, they would be rich today. I can not help but think how God loved and still loves us today enough to tell us over and over again that if we do (fill in the blank) we are going to suffer. We like to think that God's greatest prophets had the largest crowds following them with appreciation, but that's not true. Many of God's prophets were ignored, beaten, and killed. Jeremiah, as I understand it only had 2 people repent under his ministry.

Today in my bible reading I read Jeremiah 9:23-24 Thus says the LORD: “Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, 24but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the LORD who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the LORD.”

Why wouldn't they listen? In part because they were too concerned with what "they" thought was right, who was the strongest, and who had the most riches. How does your understanding of the world, physical ability, and bank account influence your humility to follow God at all costs?

Can I lovingly challenge you today to brag on the Lord's love, justice, and righteousness to others? The easiest way to do this is to share the gospel with someone. Share how God loves them, died for them, and exchanges their sin for His righteousness.

Reminder:

1) Let's pray together this week. Pray that God will send the Lost to the Trunk or Treat, that the gospel will be clearly spoken and heard, that God would use us to be a part of the solution and not the problem, and finally that God would order our steps so we can Share the Gospel and Invite others.

2) Praise God we are up to 1713 Invitations since April. We can easily reach our goal of 1800 by the end of the week.

3) Tuesday is the Women's Bible Studay at 6pm. Taco's will be served.

4) Trunk or Treat is this Sunday at 5pm. Go to our facebook page and share the event today and this Friday.

5) Praying for you. Don't grow weary of doing good. What a blessing it is to be God's servant.

Love, Serve, Go

Brian Winburn
