Here is a good song for you today. Sing along with it and let it fill your heart.
This is a Gospel song from before my time but when I hear it I think to myself that the sentiment of this song is something I need to work on myself.
Great hymn from George Beverly Shea at a Billy Graham Crusade:
I really miss hearing the old hymns in church. I think they should mix in some of these hymns along with the contemporary songs they play. I would going to say “sing” but I have noticed when the worship team is playing these new songs that most people, as I look around, just stand there and are not singing. I always thought that one of the purposes of music in church is for the congregation to participate in the service and that is not happening anymore.
I need your thoughts on this subject.
I asked Pastor Duke a while back if it was OK if I shared some of his postings on Facebook and he said it was OK by him. I’m glad because his postings are like gold and packed full of wisdom.
Have ya noticed that “Good and evil often run on parallel tracks and often arrive about the same time.” ….All through Scripture, history and our lives. Careful not to focus on the evil..just look over to the other track.
Sometimes when I’m ministering to a person, I don’t tell them what God can do for them, but I tell them what God has done for me, it leads them into asking questions like, how do you do that (Then There Goes that open door )there are so many ways to minister to a person, without cramming the word of God down their throat
“Jesus ” hold my hand, there is so much I want to talk to you about, then I’ll stop and listen as you speak
Easter is coming up pretty soon (couple weeks). Everyone is buying eggs to color and hide and I kind of like that also; I remember an Easter egg hunt at my Grandma Knights Methodist church in Mascotte FL. What fun, what memories. Of course as an adult I now know the real significance of Easter – a time of sadness that turns into a time of joy as Jesus sacrifices himself for us on the cross.
Waterford Weslyan Church has a huge Easter Egg hunt for children at a local park. This is a way to reach out and do something for the community much as Jesus has reached out to us in saving us. If I can get it to work I am going to try to insert here a YouTube video about Easter.
