Men Prepare Sermons; God Prepares Men

2nd Timothy 2:15

"The proper place for a ship to be is in the water, but if the water gets into the ship, the ship will sink. The proper place for the church is in the world,

BUT IF THE 'WORLD' GETS INTO THE CHURCH,

THE CHURCH WILL GO DOWN IN DISGRACE!"

"Now fear the Lord and serve Him with all faithfulness...But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve...But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD."-Joshua 24:14-15

Proverbs 29:2  “When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice; when the wicked rule, the people groan.”

VISION!  Continued-Part Two!

How one receives the vision is far less important than our need to obtain it. “Where there is no vision, the people are unrestrained…” Prov. 29:18a.  Do you have a vision from the Lord?  I know that many are called, and many do have a vision from the Lord.  But, the question is, How do we respond when He gives that call, that vision, and the vision is so large, it is far beyond our ability to even consider on our own. This vision is so large that it requires gifts, skills, resources and dare I say, faith that you can’t even imagine having? What if the vision is so large that it has the potential of impacting a whole community, a whole town, far reaching into the far reaches of America, and even the world? Do you chalk it up to impossible and pray for a new vision, or seek the Lord with the question, “Lord! How do I increase my faith to match the vision You have given me”.    More later!

TRIP TO SOUTHEAST ARIZONA

On our trip down into  Southeast Arizona, we stopped for lunch at the Bisbee Breakfast Club , just south of Bisbee, in…. BisbeeBreakfastClub
Lowell, Arizona.  We were surprised to find this to be a town of “Yesterday”. It almost felt like a time for a Greyhound bus trip.

It was a delight to find an Indian motor cycle  (Made in Springfield, MA) setting in a display window, with an old Hudson Pick-up Truck parked at the curb.

  1. If the church stood up and became attached to the Lord's body,

    we would be a force in society instead of a farce.

    We need to stop trying to be the head......... and leave that to Jesus.

    I too will be voting ... in fact Laverne and I already have -

    God have mercy on this generation for YOUR name's sake.

    Appreciate and pray for you and your flock.
