It was great to see so many people with us last Sunday! God is doing wonderful things in our church and I can’t wait to see what comes next. We’re always encouraged by the Sunday school time with Priscilla, and Pastor David showed us through Jesus’ example how we should serve each other. He challenged us to act on it. We do have a lot of servants in our church. The nature of what we do demands it. But as he said, we can always do better. I challenge even those of us who may think there’s nothing we can do to find ways of modeling what Jesus did. It’s only in doing what God made us to do that wee will find true meaning and purpose for our lives.
This Sunday, you get two for one. We’re going to talk about two people once again delivered Israel after they had fallen into sin, been judged for it, and then called out to God. Deborah was a judge and a prophetess. Barack was the man she called to raise an army and defeat the king who was oppressing Israel. You’ll find the story in Judges 4. When we’re done, I hope we will all see that when God gives you a mission, it doesn’t matter who you are. He will provide the power to make the mission more than possible. It will be accomplished!
