On April 7, 2019 our morning message was brought by Rev. Marcus McDougle. Scripture reference John 11:1 35-40 with the subject Revival.

Food For Thought: Paul said that it is better to speak five words that people can understand than to speak volumes that they cannot comprehend. What good is a flute, harp or trumpet unless they play the notes written on the score? But when each player plays the notes written for their instrument, the result is beautiful harmony. The flute and harp are soft, melodic instruments. Some people are like that so gentle, kind comforting and calming. But there is also a need in God’s musical ensemble for a trumpeter to warn us of his approach. When the notes are sounding clear, the unbeliever who comes into our Christian gatherings will be convicted of his sin, and his heart will be laid open to the Word of God. Another lost one will have joined God’s family. May he help us to live according to the notes in the Book.
