On September 4th our morning message was brought by Rev. Marcus McDougle. Scripture reference John 10:1-10 with the subject Recover what was lost.
Food For Thought: When God created earth, He did ask us to be good stewards of His beautiful world. Have we done that? No. Over the years our priorities have shifted. We tend to focus more on the needs of our planet than on the needs of people. As Christians, when we leave this earth and come to meet our Maker face to face, He won’t be as concerned about whether we recycled as much as whether we obeyed His mandate of sharing the Gospel. So, are we spending our days worrying about our carbon footprint or more of our time dealing with our eternal imprint? We should always pray for opportunities to share the mercy and love of our Savior with people of all nations whether it’s overseas or simply across the street.
