I have literally not had time to write a blog this past week until tonight. Sorry for the late post. I HAD to post about this past Sunday even though I'm late.
First, a couple of important things
1. We will be having no service on July 4th. The 4th is on a Sunday this year, and we want all of our volunteers and attenders to be free to spend time with their families.
2. Our mission week is next week. If you want to sign up for a time to help build Lake Russell Baptist Churches new church building, please let us know. You can email the church to tell us when you can be there. Our email is Web@ocgreenwood.com
Okay, so this Sunday was amazing. I really felt like the Lord worked in the hearts of everyone in attendance. The greatest thing was that we had a guy give his life to Jesus!... That's what it is all about! YEA!
Here's a few highlights.
-We read from John Chapter 4
-Read it and listen to the podcast. God's word is POWERFUL!
-Jesus HAD to go through Samaria.
-Jesus went to the most sacred places of the most lost people, and yet that is exactly what the church tends to teach it's members not to do.
-Jesus went to Jacob's well in order to abolish every ounce of hatred between the Jews and the Samaritans.
-The culture of lost people is our current day Samaria and the church is doing no better than the Jews did reaching the Samaritans.
-Churches are fighting over paint and carpet, meanwhile people are dying and going to Hell because we don't have time to share the gospel because our petty arguments are taking up all of our time.
-One of our greatest challenges is that we tend to worship our sacred places more than we worship the Savior.
-Our love for our sacred places are keeping people from the Gospel!
-Are you worshiping the church, Sunday, the church building , or just the idea of church, instead of worshiping Jesus?
-Let's choose to be part of a new church. A church that is filled with "True worshipers" who worship in spirit and in truth.
-A guy met Jesus this past Sunday! Heaven is one more person crowded! That's why we do what we do. We are so blessed to be part of God's gospel of salvation!
