Pat’s Chat "Sabbath, February 29"


Jeff Hunt’s wonderful worship service at our church on Sabbath, February 29, was very successful.  I enjoyed his songs so much and he had many little stories that brought all of us spiritual food that included some tears or laughter.  I felt like the whole church, along with our visitors, felt the same way I did. 

I just hope that Jeff’s service later on yesterday at the Tennerton Methodist church was as inspiring as ours.  Then today, he provided the worship service at the First Baptist Church, here in Buckhannon.  If any of you feel that your own church or organization would like to have Jeff Hunt in concert, I am sure that could be worked out.  Call our church at (304) 472-0962, and leave a message or go and check out Jeff Hunt Ministries at www.jeffhuntministries.com/index.php?option=com_wrapper&Itemid=33 

How many of you occasionally or daily repeat the Lord’s Prayer?  I wonder if you have ever given thought to the fact that you say, “forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors.”  AS WE forgive those who trespass against US!  Do we truly want God to forgive US when we confess our sins exactly the same way WE forgive people who treat US badly?  Jesus, when nails were being driven into His hands and feet, said in prayer, “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.”  Jesus carried no grudges.  Satan wants to destroy us, our families, our churches, any way he can because he knows he has just a short time and the only way he can get back at God is to harm those whom God loves.  If we truly want to be ready when Jesus comes back (which will be soon as you can see in Matthew 24) then we will not let Satan drive a wedge between us and others, no matter how bad the situation.  Jesus also says we are to love others as He has loved us (John 13:34).  Choose to imitate Jesus and be loving and kind.  Love is the fulfilling of every commandment.  We can ONLY do this if we keep close to the Lord and let Him work in us.  Otherwise, it is humanly impossible.  Our faith in Him is what saves us and will make us ready to meet Him soon.  It is He that works in us (Philippians 2:13; Ephesians 3:20).  Believing THAT is the FAITH that saves us.

MARANATHA!
