Out of love for one another…….
We are currently allowing mask use to be optional during the Sunday morning Bible Study and worship assembly and Wednesday evening Bible study. We recommend that those who are unvaccinated or have personal health concerns to continue to wear a mask. We thank you for your consideration of and care for others. Masks are available if you need one.
“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” (John 13:34-35 ESV)
Scripture of the Week
“As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you. Now remain in My love. If you obey My commands, you will remain in My love. I have obeyed My Father’s commands and remain in His love. I have told you this so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be complete. My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends. You are My friends if you do what I command. ~~ John 15:9-14
Something to Smile About
A businessman from Wisconsin went on a business trip to Louisiana, and his wife was joining him later for vacation. Upon arrival, he immediately plugged his laptop into the hotel room port and sent a short E-mail back home to his wife, Jennifer Johnson, at her address, JennJohn@world.net.
Unfortunately, in his haste, he mistyped a letter and the E-mail ended up going to JeanJohn@world.net, a Jean Johnson in Duluth, the wife of a preacher who had just passed away and was buried that day.
The preacher’s wife took one look at the E-mail and promptly fainted. It read, “Arrived safely. It sure is hot down here! Can’t wait for you to join me.
Think About It
―Nothing paralyzes our lives like the attitude that things can never change. We need to remind ourselves that God can change things. Outlook determines outcome. If we see only the problems, we will be defeated; but if we see the possibilities in the problems, we can have victory. — Warren Wiersbe
―There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind. – C.S. Lewis
―Refuse to be average. Let your heart soar as high as it will. – A.W. Tozer
If you know that God loves you, you should never question a directive from Him. It will always be right and best. When He gives you a directive, you are not just to observe it, discuss it, or debate it. You are to obey it. — Henry Blackaby
―God bestows His blessings without discrimination. The followers of Jesus are children of God, and they should manifest the family likeness by doing good to all, even to those who deserve the opposite. — F.F. Bruce
―Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from them themselves.
