We experienced God’s powerful presence this past Sunday. The Holy Spirit was moving so strongly in the 8:30 service. I saw several wiping tears as they were moved by the Spirit of God. And, it was so good to have the choir leading us in worship in song at the 11:00 service! We welcomed Aaron and Rebecca Grob in the 8:30 service upon promise of their letter from Redemption Baptist Church in Diamondhead, Ms. Then, in the 11:00 service two of our students, Amari Johnson and Jade Yates made public professions of faith! Please introduce yourself to all of them, and make them feel welcome!
By the time you read this I will have led in prayer to open Tuesday’s Senate session at the Capitol building in Jackson. I want to thank Senator Angela Hill for the invitation. It certainly is an honor for me to pray over our legislators and the business that is before them. But, it is also a responsibility for each of us. We are instructed to pray for those in authority. Why? So that the work they accomplish will enable all of us to live peaceful, quality lives, free to worship and serve God. “First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way” (1 Timothy 2:1-2, ESV).
You are loved!
