Wasn't last Sunday services great? The morning service was filled with the anointing and presence of the Lord and in the evening 16 people were Baptized. Praise the Lord! At Bible Study we were talking about how to change and become better at living out our faith as we walk with the Lord Jesus. The Bible tells us that we perish for lack of knowledge so we need Knowledge of the Word of God, Knowledge about who we are, and knowledge about those that are around us. Armed with the right information we then need to have the desire to please the Lord and change. After the Bible Study ended it was said, 'change is not painful but it's our resistance to change that's painful.' My parable; if you said something mean a couple of times and the Lord said, 'stop doing that.' You could obey the Lord without much resistance. On the other hand if you were saying something mean every day of your life to everyone you talked to and the Lord said, 'stop doing that.' Your personal resistance to change would be greater and harder for you to accomplish. The truth to change for both is equal but the person's personal resistance will be different. May we all be strengthened in the inner person to lovingly allow His Holy Word to change our world.
This Saturday evening I have been invited to be the guest speaker at the annual Cape Breton Bible Camp Banquet in Millville. It is always an honor to share a revelation from God with other believers.
This Sunday morning I'll be speaking on, 'The Real Life of A Leader.' A real leader is someone who God prepares for leadership before they ever become a leader. Invite a friend to join you in church this Sunday.
In December the church leadership decided due to many circumstances that we should stop having Sunday evening services for 3 months. The circumstances that were in place then haven't changed but we are in the process of having our own church building. Once we are in our new church we will look at our weekly schedule to see how things will work. Thank you for your support for all the things that we do.
Continue to pray for all those in need, looking forward to seeing you soon, lots of love, Pastor Kevin and Alice
