Church News for Thursday, May 16By Staff Reports Published 10:43am Monday, June 3, 2013
Bethany Baptist Church
We had several visitors in our service and we invite them to come again. Our mothers were honored in our service; we are thankful for the love and care of our mothers and the impact they have made on our lives.
Bro. Steve’s message was about a Mother’s Love. He used Titus 2:1-7, and called his message “What’s a Mother To Do These Days?” The Bible has a lot to say about how to rear children. It is the parents’ responsibility to teach and discipline their children and, most of all, to love them.
Mothers are very important: The Godly mother brings grace to the home. She loves her kids unconditionally. The Godly mother is the heart of the home, and it is her responsibility to guide and nurture. The Godly mother guards the home against wrong behavior and she disciplines her children. Mothers, love your kids!
Sunday night, following our monthly business meeting, Bro. Steve brought a message from Hebrews 10:12-31 titled “Presumptuous Sin.”
A saved person cannot lose his salvation; there is only one way of salvation and Christ refuses no one who will call on him. (John 6:37) But a saved person can sin willfully, and when he does, he faces certain judgment. He should repent before God and strive to avoid future willful sin by faithfully reading God’s word, praying, and listening to the Holy Spirit. We have an advocate, who is Jesus Christ, to intercede for us. (I John 2:1)
Prayer list: Betty Biggs, James Bixler, Doris and Verdie Glenn, Billie Neeley, Ron Peppers, Grace and Elwyn Robinson, Elzie Sanders, Travis Swift and Glenda Wallace.
See you Sunday!
