Weekly message from Church Leadership

 

Greetings Brothers and Sisters,

 

There are some passages of scripture when you read them you can almost picture Jesus as our teacher slowly and patiently instructing us. He has this unique way of pointing out both our strengths and our weaknesses like when he talked about Sons of Thunder. Or when he wanted us to understand something and he repeated it over and over until we got it. Peter seemed to be one who received that kind of treatment a lot. Regardless of what we need, Jesus has a way of adapting his instructions so that each of us will get what we need.  The Bible tells us that:

 

“And he opened his mouth and taught them, saying:  “Blessed are the…” Matthew 5:2,3

 

God has given us all something that we can open up our mouths and share. We can share a word that can bless a heart, sooth a mind, or save a life. Come join us for a loving fellowship this Sabbath In-Person (starting at 10am ) and via our Virtual Fellowship (Zoom and Facebook Live). Below is an outline of tomorrow’s program and a few announcements. Stay connected!

 

Please join us for Virtual fellowship via our Zoom Space:

      • What do you have?:  The woman had lost her husband. Creditors were coming to collect. She had no money to pay them. What was she going to do?
      • She went to the prophet Elisha and told him her trouble. “They will take my two sons as slaves,” she cried.
      • The prophet asked one question. “What do you have in your house?”
      • “I have only one small pot of olive oil,” she replied.
      • He instructed her to borrow as many empty vessels as she could from all her friends and neighbors. Then, in private, she should pour that same oil into the borrowed containers.
      • Her sons brought vessel after vessel until there were no more available. She began pouring oil from her little pot. When she filled the last jar, the oil stopped flowing.
      • The next day she told Elisha what God had done. He told her, “Go, sell the oil, and pay thy debt, and live thou and thy children of the rest.” 2 Kings 4:7
      • When this widow came to the Lord, our Father heard her prayer and intervened.
      • Today, we have many members who are in debt, and as a result, it becomes difficult to contribute tithes and offerings. I want to introduce you to a God who hears the cries of mothers and fathers who are in need. God opens the windows of heaven in our behalf. When you receive His blessings, remember to thank the same God by giving offerings so that others can also receive a blessing.

        ·        Unnamed Characters:  The woman had lost her husband. Creditors were coming to collect. She had no money to pay them. What was she going to do?

        ·        The General of the Army of Syria was a leper. During one of the conquests against Samaria, the general captured a young girl and gave her to his wife as a maid. The Bible never gives the name of this precious child, but her influence would be great. She spoke of the God of Israel who could heal the husband of her mistress.

        ·        The wife told her husband of the hope of a cure. Naaman asked the king of Syria to write a letter to the king of Samaria requesting healing.

        ·        After several delays, Naaman arrived at the home of the prophet Elisha. He found a humble home. To make matters worse, Elisha didn’t even come out in person to meet the general. He sent his servant out to deliver the simple message. “Go and wash in Jordan seven times.” 2 Kings 5:10

        ·        Angry, Naaman headed home. But his servants urged him to follow the command of the prophet. When he did, God healed him of the leprosy.

        ·        A little girl shared with her mistress. The woman shared with her husband. The general shared with the king of Syria. Naaman came before the prophet of God, and God changed him. Today, we can do the same. When we give to the local budget, the funds are used to help share the gospel with others. Your name may never be known, but by sharing—like the little maid—lives will change as did that of Naaman the General.
