This past Sunday and Monday our church had the awesome privilege to have Pastor Rod Glatt from Mount Gilead Missionary Baptist Church come and preach a 2 day revival. I’ve been a part of week long revivals that  have not had as much meat preached in them as did this one. Not only were the text he preached on food for the soul, but the excellent exposition and teaching on these scriptures was exactly what we needed to hear. Somehow he was able to preach these verses so that it was meant for the redeemed and the lost. “Are You Saved” was the theme of the revival, and he used Eph. 2:8-10 (Sun. morning) Eph. 1:3-6 (Sun. night) and John 15:15-17 (Mon night). He preached these difficult verses in a clear and simple way, he didn’t try to run from or  sugarcoat the truths that these verses present, and I for one appreciate that. The thing that I took away from this series of meetings was something I never get tired of hearing= God gets the ALL the glory for my salvation!! I think the true measure of success for a revival is if the church can still see the effects of it weeks down the road. I’ll be disappointed if we don’t. It was a series of messages like the ones we just heard that can make a church turn a corner and really start making an impact on the community it serves and more importantly for the Kingdom of God.

 In other news… Mystie has got all her resumes turned in and now we are just waiting for interview opportunities. I’m waiting on a packet from Boyce so that we can go visit the campus and talk to some people about what we feel God is calling us to do. Hopefully we can do some apartment hunting while we are up there. The kids have less than a week of school left before they start their summer vacations. I want to thank the Historic Protestant and Mrs H.P. for opening their house up to us and the Keifers Monday evening. We had a wonderful time sitting around discussing the things of God. .

 

That’s all for now………..

    Hey Bill,
    It’s great to hear how things are moving in your life with God’s direction. Also you were right about the revival meeting. At least the one I attended Mon. evening. I love to hear a preacher when he sticks to the scripture, and explains it as well as he did. God Bless you all.

    Yes…it was a joy to see Brother Rod and hear the words given by God through His holy scriptures. And it was a double joy to visit with brothers and sisters in Christ at the HP home…May we have many more together!!! It’s so refreshing to meet with believers who truly love and edify…God’s blessings to all of you!
