Weekly Update - 9/27

Thank you Jay Spencer for filling in for Patrick, who was out of town today.  
He asked "Why Are We Here?"
~~To worship and praise God.
~~To stir one another.

We don't live in a world that really reveres God.
We must still honor God. What matters is not of the world, but of God.
God takes sin very seriously.
We must teach God's word and live God's word.

He reminded us of John 8:2-11..."Let him without sin cast the first stone."
God has always been concerned about His people and His love of His people. 

~~Do the will of God
~~Do not be judged NOT doing God's will.

Humble yourself to the Lord....CALL UPON HIM!
Be merciful if you WANT the mercy of God.
