Friendship Baptist Church
Our choir special was “Love Divine, All Loves Excelling.” Bro. Ken Daniel’s message was from Luke 5:1-11. His title was “Becoming Fishers of Men.”
In the passage, Jesus calls four fishermen to follow him. The first miraculous catch of fish takes place. So many fish were caught that their nets broke. Jesus taught the people of the ship and broke down barriers.
In the evening service, Bro. Ken continued his study of Revelation from chapter 7. He spoke about the seal of God.
Angels are not only messengers of God, but protectors also. In this passage, John sees tons of people standing around God’s throne. They are wearing white robes and holding palm leaves, and they all praise God. One of the elders tells John that these people have been through a huge ordeal but made it through. They will not be thirsty ever again. The Lamb will be their shepherd and lead them.
