Please join us as we celebrate the birth of Jesus and then decorate our Chrismon tree. If you’ve never been to a Chrismon service you have missed a blessing!
December 13 at 6pm our Youth will sing at Cleburne Nursing Home. December 15 our Worship Choir will present “Bethlehem Morning” during the 11am service. Following service we will enjoy a Christmas fellowship meal.
Pastor Donald’s message was taken from I Samuel 3:1-10 “Spiritual Power Failure”. In order for us to have spiritual power we must have a connection. That connection comes from listening to God! The youth Samuel was confused when he heard what he thought was Eli calling him in the night, “Samuel, Samuel.” Three times he heard the call and went to Eli only to be told it wasn’t Eli that had called. The third time Eli told Samuel if he hears the call again to answer “Speak, Lord, for your servant heareth.” Samuel went back to bed and he hears the call again. He answers just as Eli had instructed. It had been God calling Samuel all along!
We can experience spiritual power failure when we are diverted, side tracked or distracted from our purpose in this life. What is our purpose? To serve God and become more like His Son Jesus. We fail to serve. We are unavailable. We begin to let things come before serving God. “The greatest ability is availability”. Samuel made himself available to God.
We need to be listening for the voice of God. He may be trying to speak to us. Just as Samuel said we should tell God we hear Him and we are here to serve Him. Is God speaking but we are not listening?
