Dear People
Glad to see many of you in church this morning. What a blessing you are to me. My prayer has been this week that God would really move among us and create a real conviction on our souls. We are busy creatures, but I believe He can be crowned King every Sunday we come together.
Are you walking in all the light God has shown you? Are you on fire in your soul? If you feel a need in your heart, are you praying for God to make Himself real to you and to meet that need?
Adoniram Judson said, “I never prayed sincerely and earnestly for anything but it came at some time. No matter at how distant a day, somehow in some shape, probably last way I would have devised, it came.”
I believe God for a church full of people on fire: faithful, steady, and powerful witnesses for His name. Are you part of that group?
People are hungry, studying God’s word. Lives are being changed as we speak. Don’t let the Spirit’s influence pass you by. Ask Him to deal with you, to give you victory like you have never had, so we can have a church like we’ve not seen in a long time. Be a change agent! Let God change you and then you can help be the change in this church!

 - Pastor Mike
