Good morning and what a weekend the Lord gave us. For those that are “regulars” at Gospel Light, you missed a tremendous moving of the Spirit of God Sunday night at Gospel Light. As I share this e-mail with you and my thoughts, I’m reminded of this all important principle as I “grew up” in the Lord over the last 35 years. This principle that needs to be constantly before all of us is faithfulness to your local church. If some of you were as “spotty” to your secular job as you are to the Lord’s Church you’d be on the street on your ear looking for new employment … money does drive ones ambitions doesn’t it?! Proverbs 16:26 He that laboureth laboureth for himself; for his mouth craveth it of him.
One of the traits the Lord looks for when promoting a Christian in service is how faithful his kids are to HIS Church…it’s that simple. It’s willingness to be faithful and where the action is or the spiritual-feeding-trough! Proverbs 20:6 Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness: but a faithful man who can find?
Many that come to Sunday morning services think that’s good enough and excuse themselves from Sunday night and Wednesday services, fellowship, activities etc. I don’t beat up the sheep for this and pray that the Lord will open those eyes in their version of “spiritual hooky” regarding church attendance. I know how you might thinking about these statements I’m making, but before you let your carnal mind go too far on justifying YOUR LIFE, let me ask you a question: WHO’S YOUR FATHER? ( John 8:44). If you’re bought and paid for by the blood of Jesus Christ, then what’s the problem?
I’ve said several times as I was “cutting my teeth” on being in a good church, that if for some reason I missed a church service, I would make sure I ordered the message to try to “get in on the action” and ask someone I knew that was there, ”what went on in the church service?”. I was spiritually hungry and couldn’t get enough of what the Lord would have for me to eat! Well with that being said the “three coarse meal” from this Sunday filled us up, of which I’m thanking the Lord.
For using three voices: Pastor Bob Brado in Sunday School, yours truly at 11am, and testimonies from Teen Camp at 6pm. The Lord moved in edification, saving souls, and getting folks right – PTL! Many missed out…some for good reasons….and some for petty, selfish, and lame reasons. The evening service at 6pm was one of few service over the years where the Spirit of God REALLY moved….truly indescribable and touching. Bro. Joe Beilman has done a good job a capturing this past Lord’s Day on the Blog…CHECK IT OUT!
The Lord is blessing Gospel Light: “Pound for Pound the Best Church Around”…just coined by me. So come and get some meat!
BE PRAYING ABOUT YOUR PART in the SPECIAL OFFERING THIS COMING LORD’S DAY for “BLING FOR THE KING”….these monies will be used for the new TEEN ROOM & ENTRANCE!
****THIS COMING SATURDAY A REQUEST FOR ALL MEN AND YOUNG MEN OF GOSPEL LIGHT TO BE AT THE MEN’S PRAYER BREAKFAST****
Hey all you people that know how to sing, or want to learn, GET ON BOARD WITH CHOIR. Bro. Mateo has a vision you’ll regret not being apart of if you don’t get in on it!
I’m copying in the e-mail I sent out to my event list about 1am this morning. This was after a wonderful visit Monday night with a family interested in becoming members!
WEDNEDAY AT 7pm… Can’t wait to see YOU!
Addicted to the Lord…. “Hook Line and Sinker” Love you guys, Pastor G
