What Will the "Lord's Day" Bring??!!

Since coming to Hueytown Baptist Church it seems that each Lord's Day brings an event in worship and Bible Study which is both uplifting and exciting. God has been and continues to be gracious to us everytime we gather.

This coming Sunday should prove to be no different. To hear the choir, soloists, and congregation lift God's praise in song brings more than just a little joy. The understanding that "God is good all the time" and "all the time God is good" seems to radiate throughout the house. Every week seems like a "buildup" to a "pentecost" experience.

From the most senior (ah, that would be the oldest) to the most junior (well, that would be the opposite), those in attendance seems to desire a fresh encounter with Jehovah God through the presence of His Holy Spirit.

There is no better place on earth than to be with God's people, in God's house, sensing God's presence, singing God's praises, reading God's word, and hearing God's message. That thought reminds us that "it's all about Him" and not about us.

His word tells us to "be anxious for nothing", but rather, "seek first God and His Kingdom" and then "all these things will be given to you." So, let's give up the thought of "what's in it for me?" and embrace the thought, "I Love you, Lord, with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength".

"Father, make it so"
