“He has showed you, o man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8 (NIV)
As a Christian it is our duty each day to seek and do the will of God. Almost every Christian would agree with that and wants to accomplish that feat. So what's the problem? The problem is deciding what “is” the will of God in our lives. We are trying to do so many “things” to please God and end up with an over crowded calendar of “things” that really don't make a difference in the kingdom. The prophet Micah tells us that God has already shown us what is good. We are to act justly - do what is right. We are to love mercy-look for ways to help those less fortunate. We are to walk humbly with God, not before Him or behind Him, but beside Him, submissive to His will. That is what God desires for you each day.
What a great week this is as we kick off our Vacation Bible School. Please pray for our teachers and students as we seek to teach and make Christ known. Pray for Kathy Scott and Kathy Webber as they direct this wonderful event. Pray that some child comes to believe and receive Jesus into their heart. Prayer works.
Our new buses are on order and should now be delivered around July 10. Ford is behind on making the chassis so the July 1 deadline will not be met. Pray that we receive them soon. The giving for the buses has been great. We already have over $67,000 on hand and are only needing another $30,000. Thank you to all who have given to the bus fund and if you have not, there is still time. Would it not be great if we had all the money in hand when the buses arrived? I believe that it could happen. Get in on the fun and give.
Directory Alert! We are scheduling the shooting of a pictorial directory for our church family. Many of you have asked for it and it is finally here. We will be taking photos in the early part of August. The weeks of August 5 - 9 and August 19 - 23 have been set aside to take photos of our church family. More information will be available soon to let you know how to sign up. We are asking that if any church members have digital pictures of any of our church events to please email them to us with a short description of the event. We are looking for church pictures to use in the ministry pages of the directory. Stay tuned for more details.
What does God want you to do? Live right, help others, and stay by His side. He is willing if you are.
See you in church.
