Church News for Thursday, Aug. 29By Staff Reports Published 1:33pm Wednesday, September 4, 2013
Cedar Grove Church
Special music was provided by Norma Muir, who sang “Didn’t I Walk on the Water.”
Bro. Heath Vine’s text came from Psalm 19:7-11, titled “Do You Believe the Bible is the Word of God?” The word of God is perfect, and keeping the word of God requires us to change our ways, our thoughts, our walk and our talk. The word of God can teach us more than people can. The word of God is alive; it speaks to each of us as Christians through the Holy Spirit. The purpose of the Bible is to teach each of us how to live our lives in obedience to God.
What if you went to the doctor and he gave you bad news saying, “It does not look good for you, but I have a medicine here that, if you take it every day without fail, will make you feel better, get better and be healed.” You would be dedicated to that medicine and take it every day. We must think of the Bible in the same way. The word of God is our medicine, our strength, our hope and the key to being what God would have each of us to be. The Bible is the sword with which to fight against Satan in our everyday battle with him. Do you use the power of God’s word? There is power in the name of Jesus, praise the Lord!
Have a great week. God Bless!

Bro. Ken’s message continued in Ephesians 5:22, 6:1-9: Wives, submit; husbands, love; children, obey your parents; employers and employees, be loyal and committed.
