What a great time we had worshiping at BBT last week. Linda led Sunday School about not being afraid to go for the things that God has promised and Larry brought the message about how important our promises mean to each other and to God. If you were not there last week you can hear both these lessons on our pod-cast. La Trish brought 2 visitors with her last week she brought her son and also a man she met at dialysis Jerry. Both men were a great blessing to us. I hope to see them again. Also last week I announced that we will be traveling on Sunday the 29Th to Richardson to visit with Richardson East Baptist Church on Sunday morning then back to our church for lunch and a movie called Grace Unplugged. I hope you will make plans to attend.
This week I will share with you something that I feel is so important and it was truly a main character trait of Jesus. Pris and I have been supporting a prison ministry for several years because we were invited to one to there banquets where a man got up and spoke about his daughter. She had done horrible things to their family but he talked about forgiveness. It really made a difference in our lives. I want to talk about some of the amazing examples Jesus showed us while he was with us. The scripture verses this week will be John 3:16-17, Romans 8:34, and Matthew 7:1-5. I know it is hard to forgive sometimes and there are times we need to just move on but it we be easier to forgive when we realize how much we have been forgiven. I have had this message for some time but it seems like we need to hear it now as we look at the way we are treating the situation that happened in Oklahoma two weeks ago. I hope you will be with us Sunday as we talk about having “A heart for Christ.”
Continue to pray for those that were mentioned in our prayer request last week. Please keep in mind that Easter is right around the corner and I hope you will be thinking about what Easter means to you. I hope to see you on Sunday and keep doing good things for the right reasons. We love you and cant wait till we see you again!
