Then Eliazar prayed, "O Lord, God of my master Abraham … Help me to accomplish the purpose of my journey." Genesis 24:12:NLT)
Eliazar was a servant of Abraham. He had been hand picked by his master to travel back to Ur and find a wife for Abraham’sson, Isaac. Eliazar knew that his journey was one of great importance.His success would mean the fulfillment of God’s promise that Abraham would be the “Father of many nations”. His failurewould be catastrophic. He looked to the only one whocould give him victory, the God of Abraham.
We, too, are on a journey. We, like Eliazar, have a purpose to accomplish, that is of tremendous importance. It is to find and fulfill the will of God in our life. We can only accomplish this journey if we look to the same source that Eliazar called upon: the God of Abraham and His son, Jesus Christ. Let Jesus help you accomplishyour journey.
The Deacons will be hosting a dinner for all of the widows in our church family. Friday, October 25, will be the date and the time is 6:30 p.m. The Deacons and their wives will be gathering to fellowship and praise God for what He has done in our church. The Bible calls the Deacons of the church to minister to the widows and try to meet their needs. This dinner is an opportunity for our widows to fellowship and get to know our Deacons. It will also be a great time to share needs and input on how the Deacons can better serve our church family. If you are a widow and would like to attend, please call the church office and make a reservation. There is no cost for our widows. Hope to see you there.
The Personnel Committee has come to a decision on how to meet the Family Ministry needs in our church. After months of prayer and seeking input from the church family, the committee is ready to bring forth what they believe will meet and bless our congregation. Please pray about this very important decision. We have so many Family Ministry needs that are not being met. This is a much needed step that we need to take. They will be sharing this decision with the church family in the near future. Keep praying.
God continues to bless us with many visitors in our services. Take some time to meet and greet them. Be sure to invite them to Bible study.
The blessings of the Lord continue to fall on our church family. With each blessing comes the opportunity to serve God more. Ask God to help you to accomplish your journey. You will be surprised at what He does.
See you in church,
