7:15 AM and I’m in my office. Morning devotion and bible study is always first. I look up at my clock, (an official Welch College desktop clock), and see it’s 8:15. I came dressed for tennis and head to Dunham Park. 17 other tennis players are there and we spend the next 1 1/2 hours playing. I love the exercise and I love the outreach to a great group of people.
Shower and shave then back to the church. I spend the next 30 minutes praying for people in our church and their friends.
I received a text from our Free Will Baptist promotional secretary, here in North Carolina, to ask about sending out email announcing our search for a youth pastor. Reuben is tremendous at his job and is a real pastor to pastors in our state.
I finished studying and going over tonight’s bible study. I’m really looking forward to our church Bible Study tonight. The fellowship is great, and I love our Wednesday night studies. We’ll finish Romans 12:1 & 2 tonight and I trust the church membership is planning on attending. I heard a pastor say recently, “His church members are so inconsistent that he has to have a search warrant to find them.” That would be really funny if it weren’t so true.
Okay, it’s back to studying and finishing Sunday Morning’s message. I can’t wait for this message. Don’t Be Afraid of a Little Dirt. In 2 Corinthians 5:1, the Apostle Paul addresses the subject of the death of the body, and what it actually means for those who live in Christ. As we examine his words, we are reminded that while this earthly body may die, it does not mean that life has ended. Paul says that we know that if this body should pass, we will enter a new and glorious body that will put this old body to shame.
WE DON’T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT DEATH AND THE DIRT!
