Reflections from the Bishop’s Desk
August signals the heart of summer, and for us at Bezer, there’s a buzz leading up to our convention services at the end of the month. This year, the preparation takes an additional dimension as we welcome our delegates, friends, and colleagues, with a memorial service for a former minister of our congregation, the late Caroline Humphrey.
This year we also challenge our brethren, other saints and friends to take note: “God is speaking.” Can you hear what He is saying?
To hear what God is saying, Chuck Swindoll said: “The church needs to wake up to see how far she has drifted, to begin walking with God, and to engage our culture for Jesus Christ.” It is my hope God will use us to demonstrate His grace and power by faith to a dying world.
Saints, when God spoke by His word in Acts 2, and three thousand (3,000) souls saved; there were no traditions, church constitutions, by-laws, programs, marketing plan, splinter groups, senior pastor, board of elders, nor corruption, but a few dedicated, sold out saints, who chose to obey God and listen as He speaks to them.
Today He is still speaking. He is saying:
· “Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden.”(Mt.11:28)
· “Go into all the world and preach my gospel.” (Mk. 16:15)
· “I will make you fishers of men.” (Mt. 4:19)
God is looking for a few good saints in the simplicity of faith to stand for Him. Through teaching, fellowship, breaking of bread and prayer.
A blessed convention to all!
