From your Pastor;

The Bible is an amazing book, “ The Lord gave the command and great was the company of those who  proclaimed it.”     God used men and women of all ages, throughout hundreds of years, and preserved His word for us. God spoke to Samuel when he was just a young child (1 Samuel 3) God spoke to Moses out of the midst of the burning bush (Ex. 3) God’s voice thundered from Mt. Sinai (Ex. 19 -20) and yet He spoke to Elijah in a still small voice (1 Kings 19)  We have books of women Ruth  and Esther and  the wonderful letters of Paul. 
     We can read of the wisdom of Solomon, and the weeping of Jeremiah. God gave us the story of the beginning all the way to the end of this age in Revelation. He spoke and they listened, faithfully recording His words. Many have tried to destroy the word. King  Jehoiakim cut the scroll with a scribe’s knife and cast it into the fire, but the Lord gave the words to Jeremiah a second time (Jeremiah 36) When the maniac of Gadara was saved we read; “And he went away and began to proclaim in Decapolis what great things Jesus had done for him, and everyone was amazed.”  Mark 5:20  
     Are we proclaiming all the great things God has done for us? What’s holding us back? 
What’s silencing our praise?   Why is the world not amazed? What are we afraid of? Ashamed of? 
    “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.”
                                                       Romans 1:16                               
 Go out today and proclaim God...
