Bits of Art for January 21, 2009
Wednesday, January 21, 2009 • Posted January 21, 2009

As you follow the events in the nation’s capitol, if you have any concerns, remember that God is always in control. His plan for our country is well documented in the Bible. Have faith that God will provide for Christians as He always has done. Read the first few chapters of Joshua and see how God helped His people as they crossed the River Jordan. Your faith will be magnified as you study the Word of God. Our country will become what God has intended it to be.

Great happy birthday wishes go to Hillary Bibb on January 23rd, to both Matt Jordan and Scott Ceynowa on January 26th and to Lena Walker on January 28th. And happy anniversary wishes go to Josh and Lorien Calhoun on January 25th and to Jeff and Judy Kingston on January 27th. Josh and family will be visiting in the neighborhood very soon.

Continue your prayers for Jean Horton and Helen Donop. Carlita Jordan is improving after almost a liter of fluid was removed from her lungs. Keep her in your prayers. Our prayers are also for E. Wayne Jordan as he has a heart procedure in Austin this Monday morning.

The Art Men’s Choir sang the praise song titled “Awesome God” for our special music. The congregation joined in the singing at the end. The words are printed below;

Our God is an awesome God.

He reigns from Heaven above.

With wisdom power and love.

Our God is an awesome God.

Reverend Krause titled his sermon “Walking in Faith.” The inspiration for the sermon comes from Acts 6:8-15. Stephen, a man full of faith, a strong believer that Jesus is the Messiah, a man full of and controlled by the Holy Spirit, was one of the seven that had been chosen to oversee the distribution of food to the widows. The Jews could not stand up to his truths about Jesus. So the Jews found false witnesses to testify against Stephen, accusing him of blasphemy against God. But Stephen spoke the truth. The Holy Spirit touched his heart and he chose to speak with faith, empowered by his belief in God. But he was stoned to death because of his beliefs.

It is up to us to make the choice to believe, knowing the consequences. Study the scriptures.
