Praise the Lord for there is no one more worthy to be praised than Jesus. Sometimes in life we can forget to thank someone who was good to us. They helped us out or they gave us something that we needed and we would say, 'when we see them we will have to thank them.' Life goes on and we forget. Paul wrote, using only a few words, to set a high bar for us to reach. 1st Thessalonians 5:16-22 "Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies. Test all things; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil." Living a thankful life is to live a blessed life so remember today to thank God and all those around you that help to make your world wonderful.
This Sunday there is only the morning service. We will have a baby to dedicate to the Lord and I will be sharing with you, 'Can You Change.' When someone asks you about a change that you need to make, do you give them an answer or an excuse? At times it's our excuses that hinder us from stepping out and changing what needs to be changed.
Last Wednesday some of the video ministry team spent the day in Moncton looking at what we need to upgrade our video ministry equipment. I mentioned the need of 20 thousand dollars to make this happen so if you can help out it would be greatly appreciated. Next Sunday is the first Sunday in Aug so it's Family Sunday. Get ready, get ready, get ready.
Continue to pray for all those in need. Looking forward to seeing you, lots of love, Pastor Kevin and Alice
