Greetings to the Fellowship Family. (Those who live near and those who live far away.) God is so good, early this morning the song 'Hold On' was playing in my ear. It's one of the new songs our worship team have been singing. I was praying for people in the church who need a miracle and hold on, hold on, hold on kept coming from the Spirit of the Lord. The good news is to receive an exceeding word from God it's only a matter of being open. Arriving at the end where the word you received is fulfilled is a time of rejoicing. It's the time in between you receiving the exceeding word and fulfilling that word with rejoicing that we need to love and believe, endure and ignore, trust and obey, hold on and keep our confidence high in Christ. The real work where we labor is not at the end or at the beginning but it's all point in between. Today the word of the Lord would say, Hold ON! It's not over. I think about the times when I have prayed and then weeks or even months later a day would come when I saw the promise fulfilled. What's strange is the day when my answer came it was like any other day. I did not know that that day was the day of my deliverance. Who knows, maybe today so far is just an ordinary day but could this be the day when your miracle will arrive. My confidence in you is high, have a blessed day.
This Sunday I will be sharing, "Stuck!" Success in life is found in flowing or following the works and words of the Holy Spirit. What happens when we get stuck in a past event. It could be either a high place of success or a low place of trouble? Believe it or not people can become no more than a monument of a great victory or a monument of a sudden tragedy. There they stand stuck in the mud on the banks of yesterday while the forever moving river of life passes them by.
We are one week away from Easter and there are some events planned for you to attend. Good Friday the Bethel Family Church in Glace Bay partners with us to have a Good Friday Church service. It's a one hour service starting @ 10:30. Fellowship time to follow. Then next Saturday, a week from tomorrow, @ 8:30 am it's our annual Men's Breakfast. It's at the Salvation Army Community Church in Sydney and all are welcome to attend. We were planning a Saturday evening worship event but that has been canceled and will be moved forward to a later date. Next Sunday morning is Easter and it will be a great time as we celebrate the Resurrection and the Life of Jesus.
Continue to pray for all those in need. Looking forward to seeing you soon, lots of love, Pastor Kevin and Alice
