Today at Church

The sermon was on the words in the Lord’s Prayer:   “And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.”  The minister, David Miller, pointed out that we live in a broken world and are in need of salvation.  In Sunday school we were taught not to build our lives or poor foundations (as on sand).  Only what we do for God will last.    Another lesson was from Psalm 96:1 “O sing to the Lord a new song: sing to the Lord, all the earth.”  New songs can be unfamiliar and risky, but we need to “Declare his glory…great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised: (Psalms 96:1, 3, 4.).   New songs can require creativity, persistence, and courage.  Next we were taught to be generous.  One way of being generous is to create new songs—to be creative as the Spirit leads us.     We learned that “If the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed” (John 8:36).  We were taught we should realize “You are not locked in!”  We are not locked in either spiritually or emotionally.  We need to step out in faith.  Bill, in his closing prayer, prayed that we be ready at any time to die—we need to keep our spirits as much as possible at all times free from sin, resentments, etc.—and not to die with these burdens on our hearts.
