Sunday Replay 2.17.08

 

A terrific day with the Lord’s people!  The “bug” that’s going around kept some folks at home, including our drummer and his family, but worship continues to get better and better.  We also had some visitors, and that’s always great.

The message was on “The Harvest.”  We looked at Jesus’ words in Matthew 9:35-38,

Jesus was going through all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every kind of disease and every kind of sickness.  Seeing the people, He felt compassion for them, because they were distressed and dispirited like sheep without a shepherd.  Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.  Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.”

We were challenged to see the people, feel genuine compassion for them, and recognize their true condition and thus what they truly need.  We saw that the harvest is plentiful – there are people in need all around us, but the workers are few.  We need to pray that God will send workers. 

We also talked about the importance of change.  We saw that “if you want what you’ve never had, you’ve got to do what you’ve never done.” And we were challenged to pray that God will do things we’re not used to!

We continue to pray for Alice’s son, Doug, as he recovers from the terrible accident he was involved in.  We also pray for Dale M.’s diagnosis and treatment.  And we were blessed to be able to pray over Tom and Kathy as they prepare to go back to Mayo for Kathy’s surgery.  Please set aside time each day to offer prayers for these folks.

The chili supper is Saturday… I’m looking forward to eating some good food and winning a few games!  I’ll be in Dallas Wednesday through Saturday for the Creative Church Conference, but I’ll be home in plenty of time for chili!

God bless y’all.  Have a great week!
