SCRIPTURE

Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

~2 Timothy 3:12, KJV

QUOTE

Everything we do has consequences.

~Dennis Potter

my two cents worth.

If we choose to do wrong there are grave consequences but even if we choose to do right, there are consequences. In Matthew 8, as Jesus and His disciples are about to get into a boat and cross to the other side, a Jewish Religious scholar said to Jesus, “I will follow you anywhere you go. “Jesus said to him, “The foxes have holes and the birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head.” One of the consequences of following Jesus is that you must let go of this world but there are others. Paul said, “If you live godly in Christ Jesus, you will suffer persecution.” So there are consequences for doing right just as there are for doing wrong. So why do right? Long term the consequences for doing right are much better than the consequences for doing wrong. Many times the first consequence of doing right is that you have to deny what you want. Let me share a secret, what you think you want is not really what you want. Everyone needs to memorize Psalm 37:4, Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart. Only the LORD knows the heart and only He can satisfy its desires. But you have to go to verse 7 for the secret…Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him. You wait for the LORD to give you what your heart really desires. Our temptation is not to wait.

  • Praise God from whom all blessing flow, praise him all workers on the ramp, we finished last night. We have the money to contract the top rail out PTL. My thanks to Gary Garner, David Wood, Jason Bowling and Michael Hembree for supervising and engineering the project. I want to thank all the workers and there are several but I’m afraid I will leave someone out. We will have a dedication when it is finished and we will recognize everyone at that time.
  • Another good service last night. We have only four more Wednesday nights before AWANA.
  • Sunday is CHILDREN’S CHEWABLE MULTI-VITAMIN DAY.
