Pastor Paul Cannon’s message was from Ruth, chapter 1. Because of a famine, Naomi and her family left Bethlehem, the city God blessed, to stay in Moab, a city of cursings. They stayed longer than they wanted to, and Naomi lost everything before she and Ruth returned to Bethlehem. When things get rough in our lives, we tend to want to move away from the place of God’s blessings and stay a while in a place of sin and cursings. But doing so causes us to lose the blessings God has for us, and we must find our way back. Where are you now? Are you in Bethlehem, with God’s blessings, or are you in Moab, lost and undone?
Brother Paul’s evening message was from Acts, chapter 28. Paul was bitten by a poisonous viper, but he shook it off and kept going. When we serve God, we will get bitten by all kind of spiritual vipers, trying to keep us from doing His will. Just like Paul, we must shake it off and keep going. God will give us what we need to do what He wants us to do, and we should not let any attacks deter us. Do you feel like you’ve been bitten? Let God show you how to get bit, but don’t quit.
Please pray for: Robert and Gladys Baughn, the family of Larry Kimbrell, Jo Simmons, our church and its members.
