One thing I want to mention are all the BAPTISMS we had this past weekend. We have been preaching on prophecy as it relates to Jesus, specifically Matthew 24 and 25, which speak of the reality of Jesus returning soon. We are living in the "last" of the "last days," and the sermons that we have recently preached have pointed us in the direction of being PREPARED for the imminent return of Christ.
My heart is encouraged that close to 50 people stepped forward last weekend. To me, that announces that people are heeding the sermons and are honestly preparing their hearts for the second coming.
As the Bible reminds us, the Lord is going to return like a "thief in the night," at a time when no one expects. So let's continue to work, serve, and live as though THIS COULD BE THE DAY.
And all God's people said????? AMEN!!!
