Rejoicing and Weeping
Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. Romans 12:15
      Ecclesiastes 3 says that there is a time for everything under the sun (including a time to be born, and a time to die, a time to weep and a time to laugh, and a time to mourn and a time to dance). As a church family, we get to experience many of these times and emotions on a regular basis. For example, last Sunday we got to rejoice with Ken Sharp and Michaela Duncan as they were baptized. We got to rejoice with Samantha Lamb as she trusted in the Lord. We got to rejoice with Clint and Kim Hoskins as they brought their newborn (Kathryn Marie was born on March 7th) to church for the first time. At the business meeting we got to celebrate 10 baptisms and several more additions to the church so far in 2021. At the same time, we mourn with Sallie, Chase and the family/friends of Mickey Clore because of his sudden passing. We have concerns for many in our church who are battling cancer and enduring the treatment plans for their cancer. We pray for the ones who are having tests and those who have upcoming surgeries.   
      As we go through life, we realize that we all experience times when we get to rejoice as individuals and families and then there are the difficult times when we experience loss and grief. As a church, we realize the opportunities to come alongside those who are experiencing difficulties, grief, and deep hurts. Sometimes we can send a card, make a call or visit, or simply say a prayer for someone we love whom we know are going through a tough time. Knowing that others care enough to pray for you often brings a special comfort. At the same time, we are able to join in the rejoicing to encourage new believers, new parents, and others who are blessed with reasons for rejoicing. These are all part of the special blessing of being a part of a church family. I’m so glad we are in this together and can multiply the blessings of life and also share the burdens of life.
      As followers of Jesus, we realize some things that help us navigate the ups and downs of life. We believe that every good thing comes from our Father in heaven. We also believe that our Lord walks with us through the trials and difficulties of life (He never leaves us or forsakes us). One day, He will call us home and we will enjoy His glorious presence forever. I don’t know about you, but I can’t imagine living life without a relationship with Jesus and the love and support of a church family.
      As followers of Jesus, we want others to know the love, grace, and mercy of Jesus. We realize that a majority of people around us do not have a personal relationship with Jesus. We want them to hear the good news and be saved. We want them to not only enjoy the promises of eternal life but also the blessings of the Lord’s presence and comfort that He provides in our daily lives. So, I have been a little extra thankful the past few weeks because my “one” (Ken) was saved and was baptized on Sunday. When we pray for a particular person for an extended period of time and the Lord answers our prayers, it is so exciting and a little extra special. 
      Last year, several of you identified somebody you were going to pray for and look for an opportunity to share the gospel with. I hope you haven’t stopped praying for that person. I hope you are still planting gospel seeds and looking for opportunities to talk to them about the Lord. Please don’t give up on that person. Our Lord is mighty to save. If we are honest, we don’t see more people saved because we don’t pray and labor for the harvest as we should. I know the Lord is the Lord of the harvest and He must save. While we don’t have the power to save, we have the gospel which is the power of God unto salvation to everyone who believes (Romans 1:16). 
      Somebody shared their gospel opportunity with me last week and even though the person didn’t decide to follow Christ, I was overjoyed to hear of the gospel conversation. What I’ve found to be true is that the people who see the most conversions are the same people who share their faith the most (which is the law of the harvest). Let’s continue to pray and share often and ask the Lord to continue to bring a harvest of souls (for His glory). Yes, people need the Lord!
