We enjoyed a blessed Lord’s Day yesterday on so many levels.
My good friend, Brad Russell, was here preaching from 1 Peter 1:3-9 a message entitled Perspective in Suffering. Many of us, when facing suffering, act as if some strange thing is happening to us. But, the Bible is clear about how we can remain grounded in the midst of it. I appreciated Brad opening his life to us and giving us solid anchors to latch onto in the midst of the storm. The perspective we have in suffering leads to perseverance based on the Prize we have in the glorious Gospel of Christ.
In the evening, our rain moved on and the temp cooled off and we enjoyed a great night of fellowship at our church picnic. Fun stuff. Nothing like unhurried fellowship, tossing the football around and watching the joy on the children’s faces as they played together. What a rich time.
Hope you had a blessed Lord’s day and enter this week refreshed.
